It’s not all about price
Sometimes a gift is really expensive but it’s not to the taste of the person you want to get it for; it might even be something they dislike.
So if you’re one of those people who thinks that you can’t go wrong with an expensive gift, you might to rethink.
How well do you know them?

But if you can afford it and you feel that person is worth, there is nothing wrong giving that person they joy of getting something they’ve always dreamt of. That would really be a gift.
