It is common to give gifts just for the sake of giving gifts. Knowing the likes and dislikes of your recipient will make your choice of gift easy to facilitate. Just like in hampers, you should see to it that it only contains the things the recipient enjoyed. In case of wine hampers, you should do a little research of what wine he likes: white, or red.
In case of mass gift-giving like those sponsored by companies, better not to include wines. You can’t forgive yourself if the receiver happened to be a wine hater or just recovering from being alcoholic? Isn’t it a disaster in the making?
Whatever your budget is reflects you or the giving company. Better give gifts that will surely have a long lasting positive result because the hampers you give are mirror of your image.
It takes time to explore because you can’t please everyone even if the recipient is your friend. But coupled with the enthusiasm of making him or her enjoy your gift be it gourmet,veggies, food hampers, etc... it is truly a rewarding practice if you do your homework.
