As a direct seller can write off any business related expenses, you may want to give them something that does not relate to their business. Here are my suggestions of items that I would like to receive but I know that not everyone will agree. Consider the recipient and what they may or may not like.
Massage – Working as a direct seller is hard work and can cause a person to tense up. A massage is a great way to relax and let those muscles loosen up. If you are not sure if your recipient has had a massage before, it may be best to start with one for half an hour. Provide a gift certificate that is good for a massage at whatever salon or business you select.
Manicure/Pedicure – For some, this is the ultimate when it comes to indulgence. If you know that the person you are buying for has a preference of where to go, make sure you purchase this service there. If you do not know, ask around. Chances are someone in your circle knows of a good place they can recommend. Depending on your budget, go with a manicure first and a pedicure second if you can afford both. Remember that some people do not like having their feet touched.
Babysit – If the direct seller you know has kids offer to babysit them one night so that she can go out and enjoy herself. She may already be paying a babysitter when she is doing events and cannot justify a babysitter to go out and enjoy herself. Take this out of her hands by offering to babysit so she can spend time with whomever.
Items from Other Direct Sellers – Quite often, people will see items that they want from other direct sellers but they do not purchase them for a variety of reasons. This can be a great way to find a gift for your friend. Discover which companies they like and then purchase something. Many will offer a gift list registry if requested.
