Most Common Gift & Shopping Occasions

  1. Firstly, Birthdays – parents, siblings, children, nieces/nephews, grandparents, friends
  2. Secondly, Anniversaries
  3. Thirdly, Weddings – You might not be able to think of any upcoming weddings right now, but they are coming. Be prepared.
  4. Fourthly, Births
  5. Not to mention – Graduations
  6. Also – Holidays – Tokens of affection on Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, 4th of July, and Halloween are common.
  7. Importantly, Christmas or other December Holiday – This is a big one. It also takes quite a bit of both money and time to prepare.
  8. Finally, Just Because – This special occasion should not be about showering your loved ones with gifts. Rather a random demonstration of what they mean to you.
