Overview

Whether you're out of ideas or pressed for time, have hundreds to spend or just a few dollars, The Perfect Present will solve all of your gift-giving dilemmas. This creative resource guide is jam-packed with one-of-a-kind gift ideas as well as innovative ways to spruce up tried-and-true classics.

Gift guru Robyn Freedman Spizman puts the fun back into gift-giving by sharing the gems of her fifteen-plus years of researching and reporting on the best gifts across America. Beginning with the "Perfect Present Survey," you'll learn the secret to selecting the ideal gift for even the most finicky person on your list. Spizman addresses every occasion—from birthdays to the holidays, from graduations to weddings, from congratulations gifts to "forgive me" gifts. The Perfect Present also locates the country's best catalog companies and top suppliers of everything from the juiciest oranges to chocolate greeting cards.

Find a gift that will bring a smile to any child's face—such as a personalized Winnie the Pooh—or make a splash by engraving a wedding invitation or having the bride's bouquet replicated in silk flowers. Spizman even offers creative advice on how best to delight friends and family with warm, witty notes and an element of surprise.

From purchase to presentation, Spizman doesn't miss an event, and now with the gems of her extensive research, neither will you!

Find gifts to suit every budget and every occasion.

For kids who have "seen it all," try naming a star after them with the Ministry of Federal Star Registration.

Put a twist on traditional gifts—for the first "paper" anniversary, try airplanetickets!

Give creative business gifts that show clients and colleagues you care, like personalized desktop accessories, or for fun, send a chocolate cellular phone customized with your name and telephone number.

Get unique ideas for Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Thanksgiving, tokens of congratulations and forgiveness, Bar Mitzvah presents, and every other occasion when you want to express your feelings by giving the perfect present.

It's better to give than to receive, as the old adage says. But what if you don't know what to give or where to find it? Your gift-giving dilemmas are over now that you're shopping with "The Gift Guru," Robyn Freedman Spizman.
