Part 2

Use the drop down boxes below to choose whether you agree or not with the following statements.

The more effort you put into coming up with, creating and buying a gift, the less you should have to spend on it.

You should always ask the person what they want rather than choosing something yourself to surprise them.

A gift voucher is the best kind of present because then the person can get something they really want.
