Belated Gift-Giving 101October 8th, 2009
Now you’ve done it. How could you have forgotten that birthday? More importantly, how are you going to fix it? You’ll be surprised how easy it is to turn this blunder into a benefit. Just take a hint from the following list of tips for making the most of the situation:
CHARM THEIR PANTS OFF: Spend a few minutes coming up with a well-written, heartfelt note to include with your gift. The note should express your joy at being part of the person’s life, or reminisce about a warm memory. The time you take to make it personal will disarm and charm the recipient, taking the focus off of the late date and planting it firmly on your genuine presentation.
GO THE EXTRA MILE: If one gift is good, two are better, right? Instead of giving a single gift, include a “bonus” with your selected present. Think cookies AND flowers. Or balloons. Or jewelry. Or a gift certificate. It’s the “something for now and something for later” approach–the gift that keeps on giving, long after they’ve forgotten that you were forgetful.
I WAS LATE, SO I OWE YOU A DATE: Once you are done asking for forgiveness, move quickly to set a date and treat the recipient to a special meet-up with you. It could be for an ice cream, a night at the movies, or, if you really feel contrite, a fancy dinner (home-cooked might earn you even more points than a night out at Chez Fancy-Fance, depending on how good of a chef you are!) Just make sure you actually hand them a gift at some point, whether it’s before or during your meet-up. There’s simply no substitute for that special feeling they’ll get when you put a little something in their hands.
USE YOUR RESOURCES: When that moment comes that you realize you’ve let the occasion slip by, one of the quickest ways to mitigate the error is to contact a professional gift company and get something delivered. There’s something about getting a delivery of flowers, candy or cookies that makes people feel really special. So special, in fact, they might not even realize the delivery was tardy. Combine this approach with one of the above items, and you’ll be forever considered a pro in the gift-giving department.
