Designers have tried to create items that are suitable for a gift. Their ideas in terms of product types, their characteristics, purposes, or materials can be both yours or may just help you to choose a gift. The gift should not be recognizable by the name of the creator, but by the one who chooses and gives it. The care and attention we express through the gift is often more valuable than the gift itself.
