It would have made the perfect gift, but “you see, I kept it!”

This fabulous tip  makes so much sense it almost sounds elementary and like everyone should know this.  But on reflection, we often forget the Smart Buyer’s Rule #1 – IF YOU  WANT IT FOR YOURSELF, IT WILL MAKE A PERFECT GIFT.

From Mary L. – Arlington, Virginia

“The other day I was searching for some jewelry for a very close relative.  I was looking for a birthday gift but nothing felt really right.

Then – OH!  OH!  OH!  Look at that silver necklace!  I love that.  Let me try that on!  I did try it on, and  felt transformed into a lady of extremely good taste. I want that necklace, I thought, but Wait a minute!  You are not shopping for yourself.  This is supposed to be a special gift.  But, I love that necklace.  What should I do?  The struggle with conscience went on.

You have probably guessed that I did wind up buying the necklace and now wear it all the time.circlenecklace2

I kept it!

It would have made the perfect gift.

I know this because I get compliments on it all the time.

And the secret shopping tip is this:  If you see something you love enough to keep, it will surely make the perfect gift and you should probably buy two!
