A gift is anything that is given, such as a present or donation. Gift giving takes place all year long for one reason or another, be it a birthday or anniversary. However, Christmastime seems to put more emphasis on giving gifts. Perhaps, like yours truly, you may have encountered the “decisions, decisions” syndrome. Hopefully, this chapter will narrow your guesswork by guiding you to buy those gifts associated with the birth number and Zodiac sign of the recipient.
To find the best type of gift for someone – including yourself – keep the following in mind:
- First, find the person’s date of birth. For instance, someone born on the 14th of the month is a number 5 person (1+4=5).
- For a second choice in selection of gifts, find the person’s Zodiac sign, which is usually different from the birth number.
- Finally, if the gift selections don’t seem to match exactly what you want, look for gifts listed under your own birth number or Zodiac sign.
The following is just a representative listing of the thousands of possible gifts to be given.
