The right gift to a person is a real joy. The present we give can be inspired. It is really fun to know that God can help us in the little things of life like picking out a specific gift for someone. I don't think God wants us to have a grumpy face when we go shop. "God loves a cheerful giver whose heart is in his giving."
Steps to finding the right present.
Step (1) - easy to forget but important.
PRAY FOR INSPIRATION.
I do believe that God can inspire us. Be specific: Suggested prayer. "Dear God, please help me find just the right present for x"
GO SHOPPING WITH AN ATTITUDE OF EXPECTANCY.
There will be a AH HA moment when you find the right gift. The gift will fit the person. The gift will make you smile because you will know it is right before you give it.
Remember, God is the ultimate giver who has given us all things for us to enjoy. Don't you think He would like to be part of the party?
