End Gift Anxiety Part 2 – The Gift Receiving

We’ve all heard this quote before:

“It is not the gift, but the thought that counts.”  – Henry van Dyke (1852-1933)

And let’s face it – that’s the true spirit of gift giving and receiving.  It’s nice to give a gift to someone and we appreciate that the person took the time to think of us and hopefully, they know us well enough to give a gift that is useful and wanted.

But what happens when you receive a gift that is not useful , not wanted or, even worse, just awful?  If you want to avoid this, start using Giftster and watch your gift receiving anxiety disappear.

Recently, I was watching an old episode of “The Cosby Show” when I saw this scene that perfectly captured how I (and I’m sure others) feel when I receive gifts that miss the mark.

Watching this made me think of all the gifts I’ve received that were thoughtful and I appreciated the person thinking of me, but they are currently sitting in a plastic containers in my garage not being used.  It makes me feel guilty in a few different ways.  I feel badly that I haven’t used some of the items because I either don’t have room or haven’t found the right opportunity to use it.  And then, I feel stressed because I have all these containers of things taking up room that could be used for something else in my life.

So how does Giftster alleviate gift receiving anxiety?

No one wants to give an unwanted, unuseful or bad present.  They want to give you something that will make your life easier, make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside or just flat out knock your socks off.

And that’s where Giftster comes to the rescue.
