GIFTS THAT ARE NOT MEMORABLE. GIFTS THAT ARE EASILY FORGOTTEN.
Boys remember gifts that are memorable, that stand out.
GIFTS THAT ARE NOT THOUGHTFUL.
Boys appreciate a gift that a lot of thought and consideration has gone into.
NO EDUCATIONAL CURIOSITY.
One can never satiate the innate curiosity in boys. Gifts should allow them to learn.
Most often the gift is played with once, never to be used again. Avoid this by ensuring the gift has longevity. Ensure the gift remains relevant.
NOT POPULAR OR COOL.
Bragging rights and attention. Boys want a reason to show off. A gift will be a lot more valuable if its cool and modern.
NO ROOM FOR MISTAKES.
Good quality and past sales support. Boys will be boys. And gifts will be broken. Ensure that there is room for errors and that the gift can be used to its utmost.
NO EASY RETURNS AND EXCHANGES.
Boys are fussy. Ensure that hassle free returns and exchanges are possible.
