As a bookseller I talked with a lady who wanted to offer a book as a present.
She was wondering…
- If you choose something which will please the person, she’ll be happy, but she’ll stay in her comfort zone…
- If you choose something more personal and you wish to make this person discover something you like, you take the risk to fail, and to bore the person. The useless present!
So there’s a frontier, a place to find : a surprise which will be delightful, opening a whole new territory of pleasures.
So it could be a 3. Choose something which is not necessarily your cup of tea, but could be the other one’s NEW cup of tea.
Mmmh? Stair’s strategy? What will you get, today? Something you like, something the other one likes, or something unknown you could like?
Your house? The other one’s house? Or a growing house for you? New room?
Thanks for reading!
