What resources exist to teach me the skill of gift giving?

The mister is a gift giving superhero. His technique is to make a note of things he sees that others might like for future use. This seems very vague to me and he can't explain it any further. I've tried doing this but it doesn't work, I think because I don't do as much internet browsing as he does and I really dislike aimless shopping in stores or online.
I have difficulties purchasing gifts for the mister, close friends & family, distant friends & family, and the office gift exchange. If I am not provided a list of items to select from, I end up being one of the panicked shoppers driving around the day before the birthday/anniversary/Christmas looking for something anything. This wastes time, is stressful, and results in crappy gifts. I don't want to be this person anymore.
