- Check their social media.
Of course, you should not stalk them. Try to check their Pinterest boards, this way you will know their preferences and their wish list.
- Follow the list
Did your beneficiary let you know precisely what he/she needs? Yep, it sounds boring but it does save you a lot of time in finalizing a gift and if it fits your budget..,then you should buy the item which they want.
