Holiday Gifts ARE What They're Wrapped up to be

The season of giving gifts continues. A story recently ran on AccountingWeb discussing the need to match the right gift to the right person.

Thought needs to be given as well to how you present the present. For example, if you are sending perishable goods, you need to ensure the company sending the gift provides more than lip service when it comes to wrapping and shipping. Nothing's worse than sending a fruit basket just to find out the fruit arrived crushed.

Here are some tips. First, if you're sending a donation to charity on someone's behalf, make certain the recipient shares your feeling on that charity.

Second, if you're ordering from a catalog, buy something and send it to yourself. You can inspect the shipment and make certain the vendor properly wraps the gift.

Lastly, if you're late in sending a gift, consider sending it for the New Year rather than for the holiday season. You'll buy some time and look like a prince.
