6. Wrap your gift nicely. A good presentation adds value to your gift and shows that you care about the person. Don’t skip this step. 7. Don’t fret over it. Once you have the name of the person, take a day or two to figure out what their interests are and write down a list of optional gifts. This is particularly important for people you don’t know or people you don’t like. The more you keep it in your head, the harder it seems to get the appropriate gift.
