Well,every time when I choose a gift,I have to remember what my friend or my family like best.And then I can according to my memory to find the gift.What's more,I don't think buying the most expensive gift is proper.

you have to think of the person for ewhom you are buying the gift, his/her likes, you affordability, the utility of your gift, if you can take cae of the above things it should be easy to decide on an item, the only place you may to give up would be the cost factor, where if you start thnking of $ 25 item you amy end up with a $50 item

Yes. I've gotta admit. I almost always have a hard time looking for gifts even for relatives/immediate family, friends. Although there were times when I do feel that I accomplished the task for looking for a "perfect" gift for someone. As long as they're happy when they receive it, I'm more than happy as well. What I usually do is planning ahead. At least two weeks before, I stay close to that person and indiscreetly, listen carefully for clues as to what he/she may want for his/her birthday. They usually tend to slip a few weeks before their birthday and mention something that they want (although sometimes they tend to intentionally say it as well and hopefully we catch it. ).

I find it really easy to buy presents for my mother and sisters. We all have very similar taste so if I like it they will like it too. As for friends, I only have a few friends close enough to exchange gifts with, so I know them well enough to get them thoughtful gifts. I find my brother-in-law more difficult so I usually get him a gift certificate to his favourite store.
