Make Gift Shopping Easy With The ‘Want, Wear, Need, Read’ Rubric

If you’re having a hard time picking out gifts for the important people in your life, this simple rubric can help you narrow things down.

Buying gifts is supposed to be fun and make you feel good, but it often turns into a stressful ordeal. That’s why Taryn Williford at Apartment Therapy recommends you narrow each person’s list down to four main categories:

  • Want: Get them something fun that you might think they’d want.
  • Wear: Get them something nice that you think they’d wear (get a gift receipt just in case.)
  • Need: Get them something they’d use or that they have been in need of.
  • Read: Get them something

Instead of one big gift that they may or may not love, they will get four smaller gifts that cover all the bases. No matter what, they will be happy — and that will make you happy and less stressed out.
