One way I prepare for it is to have a gift box. My gift box is full of lotions, candles, jewelry and other things I have found on sale and purchased with no one in mind. I love the $10 of a $10 purchase coupons that I often get from JCPenny's. I often by packages of socks for my boys! (I've been known to break up the package and give them one sock at a time!)
I also very frequently use the free gift or free gift with purchase I get from Bath and Body Works.

1) If a gift giving occasion comes up, I am always prepared and I don't have to panic and make a last minute trip to the store and pay (gasp!) full price!
After Christmas last year I bought these adorable potholders and towels, will look great in a goodie basket this year.
I had this Gratitude Journal made from Paper Cotorie when they were offering $40 off the purchase. I think I paid $5 for shipping.
That's what works for me!
