I actually couldn't believe that product got off the ground (poo pouri)... I mean a quick shot of air freshener pretty much does the same thing.  I was stunned to see a little bottle on the back on my SIL's throne.... Woman LOL

Of course there is always the old standard - 'gifts for the gift drawer'.

If I'm buying a gift for the bus driver and the hosts says it's a good gift, then that's what I'll get. I wish they would say what's a good gift for the Roto-Rooter guy.

Wasn't it Jill who suggested a D&B purse for the teacher?

You've GOT to be kidding!  When did giving the Teacher something other than a little token become a "thing"?  Wow....

Re: HOW DO YOU KNOW

[ Edited ]

Dell is right:  there are plenty of gifts on the Q and most of those I have given, I have first purchased myself and know their quality.  They aren't on the "gift" shows because they are strong enough to have their own dedicated shows. For me, those have included:

 

Philosophy 3 in 1 Shower Gels

 

Honora pearl earrings

 

a silk blanket from Last Clicks when a niece was going away to college soon.

 

Northern Nights comforters

 

Chinese Jade (back when they sold this in special shows)

 

Hello Kitty jewelry (a friend is a fanatic)

 

Steiff, Hermann, and Annette bears (when my nieces and nephews were small)

 

A four-piece place setting of Lenox China (Lunchtime Specials in 2014).  Huge success.

 

Flameless candles with a Florence Italy theme.

 

14 and 18K jewelry items for my sister.

 

an Irish drum  (bodhran?)

 

a remote controlled tarantula (that may have been on a gift show!)

 

and (drum roll), from a gift show c. 2000, the perfect gift for a friend of my dad's who helped to care for him when my dad was sick with Alzheimer's. 

 

This friend had a very ... earthy sense of humor and was the sweetest person on the face of the earth.  His reaction on opening the "Pooping Moose" was to laugh so loud the echo was probably heard in Brazil.

I had filled it, to demonstrate the Moose's properties, with raisinettes. 

 

Next day edit:

I should have included the wonderful Polish pottery shows of yesteryear as a source for gifts.  I remembered just today, when I received an email from a friend with an attached picture of a beautiful autumn flower arrangement--in a pretty U-4 pitcher I probably sent her 10 years ago

oh the suggestions on QVC of what gifts to give are ridiculous, but also so silly I sometimes get in a good laugh!!  one of the dumbest was giving your child's teacher a pair of shoes..."back in the day" we used to give our teachers little thoughtful gifts and I mean little cost involved. Trinkets, or even something homemade.  Certainly weren't providing their wearing apparel
