There is no magic formula to the perfect holiday gift.
It's an intricate meld of taking into consideration a number of factors: recipient, your relationship to them and if they've been dropping any hints about something they really want.
And, if they're like most consumers, those "hints" haven't been so subtle, and they probably start well before retailers start displaying Christmas trees.
But that's the new age of gift giving, especially around the holiday season. Swimming pools have barely been closed and sweaters are just starting to be dusted off before those around you (friends, family members or co workers) can't wait to start thinking long and hard about what you're going to get them.
Fashion fills the void nicely as far as gifts go, but trying to keep up with trends is a daunting dilemma that typically carries with it a lot of stressful shopping. An easy way to stay up on what is current and one that doesn't take much effort on your part, which is probably for the best given that you're in the midst of fulfilling your holiday shopping list, is the social media site Wishclouds.

You've heard the phrase "wishing upon a star," but this is more like wishing you were one. Wishclouds pulls together the brands that your gift recipients want and sprinkles in a few celebrity picks as far as what is the best, brightest and most stylish for any particular season.
Social media such as Wishclouds, Twitter or Facebook play a big role in picking just the right gift as far as knowing what is popular, but equally important is knowing what is popular to the specific person on your list.
Lovers of the culinary cuisine could appreciate something such as a gift certificate to a renowned restaurant. If that same person desperately needs an upgrade to their carefully crafted kitchen, any number of counter top appliances would do the trick. Anyone who loves to cook will tell you that the keys to a flowing kitchen starts with quality cookware and knives, the sharper the better.
For a truly remarkable set of knives, none are quite as superior as Edge of Belgravia Knives, which pack together practicality and innovation as far as being incredibly durable and incorporate technology that leaves blades sharper longer.
Those rolling their eyes at knives carrying the "innovative" tag should note that Edge of Belgravia Knives are slicing and dicing through the competition far beyond just the kitchen. They've been recognized alongside some sensational technological staples such as the iPad for their design.
The truly eclectic holiday shopping experience holds very little boundaries as far as creativity and eventual purchase. Nothing is off the table when it comes to buying power that powers an entire retail season of shopping.
Exercising your resources and just the right amount of practice, patience and a little perseverance makes your pursuit of finding perfection as far as a gift goes suddenly attainable.
