What should I gift my friend?
What should I gift to my friend? By the end of this short write-up, you will not only get an answer to this very common question, but also overcome the confusion, overthinking, and giftophobia that may fill your head when you start finding a gift, just like you are now. Moreover, I promise that you will never have to google this question again for the rest of your life!
How can I say that? Well, I’m not an expert, I’m not even a writer; so why did I say that? That’s because I’ve worked with psychologists for years trying to get to the root cause of this problem and unearth the solution. Unlike many so-called gifting experts out there, I don’t call myself an expert because I believe that a “best gift” or a “perfect gift” doesn’t exist. How can an object or a commodity be the best gift for all friends? However, would you agree with me if I say that the human psychology of friends around the globe is fundamentally the same? If yes, then you are synonymous with the years of research done in psychology which says that “Homo sapiens emerged some 200,000 years ago, yet according to evolutionary psychology, people today still display those traits that made survival possible back then: an instinct to fight furiously when threatened, for instance. Human beings are, in other words, hardwired”. While I don’t call myself an expert, I confidently state that “A gift cannot be perfect; however, if you can understand human psychology, you can certainly give a perfectly-received gift - a gift that is based on the recipient's psychology. A gift that is guaranteed to be loved and becomes unforgettable”. Why should you believe my statement? Well, I’m a #1 Best Selling Author, worldwide, who has written books on “Gift-giving” based on years of research and studies in gifting psychology conducted by Harvard University, University of California, BBC Channel, and several clinical psychologists.

Don’t fall prey! I understand that most people procrastinate their gift search to the last-minute, which perhaps, I did too until I found the false-perception that is created in the gifting industry. You see, most of the gifting blogs and ideas that show up on Google search that say “Top 10 Best Gifts for friends” are unverified - there is no research, study, or evidence performed on them that gives a trust badge that these 10 gifts are unquestionably the best. Thus, as a result, it is very rare that even though the receiver might jump off their feet at the moment of receiving the gift, that the gift will not end up sitting on the shelf, eating dust! Psychologically speaking, a perfect gift is something that becomes indispensable, both in the memories and in daily life usage - not only because it is useful or practical, but because it provides a feeling, an experience, some personalized-uniqueness, and long-term satisfaction.
Now, it may be overwhelming to think how you can achieve all these. But don’t worry, as I promised in the beginning, I got you! I am providing you with a LAST-MINUTE GIFTING CHECKLIST that makes it possible for you to effectively fulfill all the aspects of a perfectly received gift covering all the major psychological attributes for friend, making your gift unforgettable. This last-minute checklist is the most sought out and loved part of my book - or I should say it’s the secret bonus so don’t miss clicking it!
