My recipient has asked for something specific. Do I have to buy it?

No ho ho! Just because your gift recipient has mentioned a specific brand or item they love, it doesn’t mean that’s what you have to buy them. Everyone loves a surprise, right? The amount you spend and what you buy is completely up to you – the only rules are to keep it appropriate and try to be thoughtful. Remember that we don’t recommend spending more than £10. Maybe they have given you some other clues? If you’re short of inspiration, here’s some help from us.
