Virtually everyone gives gifts--homemakers, construction workers, sports heroes, grandparents, business men and women, students, public officials, diplomats. And although most people enjoy giving gifts, fewer than 35 percent believe they are creative gift givers.
Research reveals that women and men (surprise!?) want a single source of information on the subject of gift giving. Over 95 percent of the respondents in one particular study said they would benefit from such a book as Present Perfect.
Each season brings a multitude of gift-giving dilemmas. Sprinkled between the holidays are weddings, baby showers, anniversaries, birthdays, bar mitzvahs, graduations, retirements, promotions, and other occasions. We hope you find this book to be a helpful, year-round reference.From the Author:
The search for a single gift over a decade ago launched the most extensive research project of our lives. Larry came home from work one day and informed me that we had been invited to a birthday party for one of the managers at his office . . . and asked if I would help him select an appropriate gift for her. Why not? After all, there must be a publication somewhere, I thought, with sound advice on gift-giving etiquette and mile-long lists of proper gifts for people I've never met.
It was the futile search for such a primer that compelled us to "write the book" on gift giving. We introduce this book to you, not as ones that were born with the perfect present in hand, but as two that have lived and breathed the subject of gift giving for the past 15 years. We've learned a good deal in this time and hope you'll be inspired and amused as you read the book.
