The Christmas countdown clock has begun. Have you thought of the perfect gift for your loved ones yet? We get it, it’s not easy to find the right present, especially when there are tons of options available and everyone seems to have everything they need already.
“Research shows the more choices we have, the harder we find it is to decide [what to buy],” says Karen Pine, Ph.D., a professor who studies the psychology of gift giving at the University of Hertfordshire. “Deciding which model, which version, and which colour leads to option overload—and that can paralyse us.”
“Gifts are an emotional exchange, and the social consequences of getting them wrong can be huge,” Pine adds. “We can endear others to us with the right gift, or completely offend them with the wrong one.”
You don’t have to worry about getting it wrong if you look to Fossil. From smartwatches to workbags, you’ll be able to find a gift that will not just be memorable, but also useful and sophisticated as well. You’re welcome.
