- Budget – Set a budget for yourself and stick to it. It’s very easy to lose track of spending during the holidays
- Personality – Would your photog friend enjoy something decorative and quirky, or would a more practical, “useful” gift be more appropriate?
- Timeline – Many gifts take quite some time to arrive, especially those with personalization involved. Be sure to allow yourself ample time to receive your item.
