Gifts, an interesting word, isn’t it? Riles up all sorts of emotions in a person and has a tendency to be associated with them for so many reasons, may it be an occasion or just an “I missed you” sort of idea. But we can all agree that the season of festivities makes one feel inclined to gift your loved ones, friends, employees or even acquaintances; one may say it’s a tradition and another might say that giving gifts is their love language.
Well Do you feel a slight chill in the air? Yeah, I know that’s a rare occurrence in UAE but you just know what to expect, the bright colorful terrace lights, the star hung on top of the trees, the enthusiasm in the workplace for “Secret Santa” well guess what? The season of snowflakes, gifts, mistletoes, hot chocolates, and a whole new year is here and I am sure many of us sometimes have a hard time determining the gifts we would like to give each other. No worries we are going to create a gift guide of items for all the Him’s, Her’s & Them’s you are unable to come up with a gift for.
Speculating a gift for the men in your life can tend to be a demoralizing task more or so if they haven’t explained their interests or what they would even mediocrely prefer.
