Three Types of Gifts

One of life's little pleasures is giving and receiving gifts. Giving a gift is one way to express appreciation, generosity, love, thanks as well as achievements and special occasions. Seeing my mum always giving gifts I quickly learned that there are three basic types of gifts; enduring, perishable/consumable/temporary and personal. What are your favorite gifts to receive?

Enduring. This includes but is not limited to: monogrammed items such as vases, decorative items, cookware, collectables and picture frames. These all make great gifts for weddings, baby showers or anniversaries 
 {peony arrangement}
Perishable, consumable or temporary. This includes but is not limited to: candles, flowers, decorative soap, candy, wine and paper gifts. These make great gifts for the person who has everything, a hostess or a friends birthday.

Personal. Shoes, picture, handbags jewelry, clothing, lotion or perfume/cologne. These all make wonderful gifts for significant others, family members and close friends.
