Don’t Stress: It’s Okay to Give Everyone the Same Gift

Think of something sweet and useful

You’re rushing to the mall to get presents for your officemates and friends—what do you do? Do you try to look for different gifts or do you simply buy one item in bulk? Some may think that giving out similar presents shows lack of preparation and effort on your part, but I think otherwise. Remember, it’s the thought that counts!

I was scrolling through my social media feed when I stumbled upon an article by Apartment Therapy about giving away the same gift to friends and loved ones. It made perfect sense. Why would you struggle and spend so much time thinking about what to give only to end up with generic presents? By choosing to give the people you love the same item, you get to pick that one thing that you truly recommend and will appeal to almost everyone.

Now, how do you decide on that one item to give away? The writer suggests “to choose something you truly love or think is unique or that solves a problem beautifully.” 

Here are some of our suggestions that I hope can help you survive the last-minute shopping rush:
