German Gift -- Make The Right Decision

Written by Marcus Hochstadt

The Right German Gift Is Often Something Different Than A Flower Or A Bottle Of Wine. Read On To Find Out.

The most given German gifts are flowers for women an a bottle of wine for men. But you could do better.

A bottle of wine, unless it is 50 years old, will be drunk at one ofrepparttar next evenings. Andrepparttar 142468 flowers a woman gets are withered in a couple of days.

Here is what I would do instead. And that will fascinate both, women and men.

==> Bring something with you that is from your country or representsrepparttar 142469 culture of your home in particular.

Now back torepparttar 142470 flowers andrepparttar 142471 wine bottle.

If these flowers are so unique and last for a long time, means that it is a plant, than it is a good German gift. And ifrepparttar 142472 wine is a few decades old so that your recipient won't empty that bottle unless you come back and you both celebrate a big deal (or something else extraordinary), that bottle will getrepparttar 142473 best place in his house, and he will show every guest this German gift he got from his friend. He even will rememberrepparttar 142474 day andrepparttar 142475 reason he got it for.

And this is my point here. Your friend, whom you give that gift, has to feel special that it brings tears in her/his eyes. Your gift has to be so unique that your friend makes everything possible to get a special place in her/his house for that German gift.
