Gifts are presented to someone to express feelings, love and appreciation. We not only love to receive gifts but also like to give gifts to our near and dear ones. In many ways it makes us feel as though we have a tactile object to show and express our love for someone.
So it is assumed that everyone loves to give and receive gifts during special occasions such as birthdays, wedding's anniversaries, Christmas and so on. However, when we receive gifts from friends or family for no reason, the feeling is unexplainable and makes our self worth increase drastically, after all it wasn't expected... we think to ourselves for a moment "I must be quite important to this person to make them buy a gift for me out of no where".
Presenting gifts just to express gratitude works wonders for both the receiver and giver. A gift is a wonderful adhesive that bonds and helps relationships grow.
Gifts are priceless; they have that certain hidden value that can be cherished for generations. The price of a gift these days is a thing of the past, the element of surprise in a gift is the factor that people appreciate it and even small gifts express a huge token of love.
It is easy to be cynical about it, but who hasn't felt the thrill of excitement and happiness at receiving a gift hamper on their birthday? What new mum doesn't feel delight at opening a present for their new born baby? And who can say that they don't feel the joy from knowing that they have made someone else’s day just by giving that special gift? Gifts are more important than we all realise. They are a way of staying in touch, saying thank you or just saying I'm happy for you!
Giving gifts with a sincere, trustworthy and unselfish heart will make everyone love you. It's all about that moment when the receiver opens that parcel and see's that gift tag saying 'just thinking of you'.
