The holiday season is almost over and during this time you have probably been bombarded with TV or internet ads about gifting. Ads after ads telling you to buy a perfume/laptop/designer bag/chocolate for your loved ones, but have you ever asked yourself what goes on behind that product?
After all, I’m sure that people will mostly remember the time you spent together as opposed to gifts they received. This is not to say that gifts are worthless – in fact, a well-chosen gift tells a person that you really took your time to think about what would make them happy. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words but a gift can be just as meaningful.
This year’s slogan at L’Occitane was “know all that you give”. It doesn’t mean just knowing why the giftee will like the present but also what went into the product you’re giving to your friend.
