Worst Ideas for Miss You Gifts
The person you’re missing is probably missing you too. So, if you choose any personalized gift, avoid using recent pictures or videos that show you having an exceptionally good time, as this might send the wrong message.
In addition, avoid purchasing a gift that will remind them of transience, such as real flowers. After all, good miss-you gifts should symbolize that your connection and love are so strong they could never fade.
Finally, miss-you gifts should be all about the person or the people you’re missing and the love you share with them. For this reason, you shouldn’t buy a gift that focuses solely on yourself or your gift preferences.
