Gift guides are put together for two reasons.
First, they are for people who have someone they love enough to buy a gift for and want to find something that is special and meaningful for them.
Second, they are for people who want people to buy them things that they actually want and so they find a gift guide full of things they love and then drop a big old hint that these things are what they want.
This is a multiple win scenario. The gift giver gets to give something that the other person wants. The gift receiver gets something they actually want.
AND, in the second scenario, the gift receiver gets to look at a bunch of stuff they like which is basically like digital window shopping.
Basically, gift guides are a gift in and of themselves. I hope you enjoy this one.
