    Celina Gill: I am Celina Gill. I am professional image consultant and a personal shopper. Today, we are talking about how to buy the perfect gift? Right now, let us get started with the initial steps in buying that perfect gift. First, I start with budgeting. You want to create a budget for that gift, because your budget would determine exactly how much or what you can buy. Create a line item in your own budget to buy that gift or send a portion of your paycheck to buy a particular gift. You do not have to break the bank in order to buy the perfect gift for someone. For example, if you want to buy diamond earrings, you can buy the same earrings the day when you have made high price or at lower price at Wal-Mart; it's what your budget can afford. Next, find out about that person's interest. Listen to some clues or some cues when you talk to them or think about what other things people have said to them or about them; also, ask that person questions. It is okay to ask them suddenly or even bluntly, what do you like? What would be the perfect gift for you? How would you like to spend your time with the perfect gift or what types of gift would you like? Think about how they like to cement their time, think about their interest, their hobbies, different things about that person. Ask their friends, families, co-workers, neighbors, anybody. You can really find out about that person if you just do a little bit of research about their interests. Next, need to find out about the interest with more research. Define exactly what you want to buy for that person. Once you to have a general idea, make it more specific by doing some research. You can always go online and find out exactly what to buy for that person once you found out their interest. If you know they like music, and you know they like a particular artist, you can go and pick up the CD from that particular artist, such as this. Or if they like photography, we can buy a new camera. We search what type of camera they need and pick it up or if they collect very different items and very usual items, for example a seahorse, go, pick it up for them; but if you do your research, find out their interest and know their specific interest, you will find a perfect gift for that person. Next, we are going to talk about buying for women.
