If you are sometimes stumped for gift ideas, this book comes in handy. It lists occasions (housewarming, retirement, christening, hospitalization, etc.) and suggests suitable gifts. For instance for "retirement" it recommends a Mexican rope hammock, a gift certificate to a health club, a gold-tooled photo album, and other gifts. Along with the list, the book gives some guidelines for each category and things to be sensitive to in your giving. For major gift giving occasions (Christmas, birthdays) it breaks the suggestions down into age groupings plus man/woman, and even suggests "stocking stuffers." For wedding anniversaries, it lists the traditional list and a revised list. Part II of the book gives tips for giving money, gift certificates, donations to a charity in the person's name, group presents, and even eliminating someone from your gift list. The book is slim, but easy to consult so hopefully your gift giving is more "on target" in the future.
