Interests – First you’re going to want to take a look at the person and think of their interests. What does that person like to do in their free time? Do they have a certain hobby that they love like a certain sport? Take a look at their hobbies and interests and that will easily get you thinking.
Personality – Next, you’re going to want to take a look at their personality. Do they like to go out a lot and have fun?

If so, think about certain books they may like, DVDs, CDs, look at their personality. Personality plays a big role in what to get them.
Budget – Next once you have an idea, you’re going to want to ask yourself what is the budget for them? Do you want to go all out or spend just a little bit on them? Think of your budget and relate items in that budget frame to what you want to get them.
Search – Another way to find a great Christmas present is to go into their favorite stores yourself. So if you’re at the mall, stop by their favorite stores and you’ll be able to find something they like for sure. If you don’t know their favorite store simply go online to websites like www.amazon.com. When you get to the website, search for an interest of things they like. For example, if you’re shopping for your dad and he likes car supplies, type in Automotive. It will give you every automotive item imaginable!
