Summary: Every year just before the gift giving season, the question of the perfect gift arises. In some years, it could be easy to find that most sought-after gift, for other years, it could become an ordeal. How should we go about finding the “perfect gift”? Social scientists advise shoppers to not try that hard. Although shoppers strive for that surprise when the gift is opened, scientists found that recipients only think about “Will I get any use out of this?”. Next finding scientists found is that regifting does not actually offend people. Last, if you know the recipients asked for something, just buy them that as a gift. 原跟讀文章: https://www.15mins.today/blog/ep-1011-the-perfect-gift-it-s-the-one-they-asked-for   Vocabulary and Sample Sentences:   Extravagant adj. – lacking restraint in using money / costing too much money People do not need extravagant gifts for their birthday.
