Why Do We Give Gifts?

Let’s get all serious and philosophical for a minute. Let’s consult the experts and have an adult discussion. Sitting here, in amongst our gorgeous gift boxes and lovely smelling deliciously packaged products, I sit and contemplate the ultimate question (for me anyway) - why do we give gifts?

Seems like an easy question to answer, doesn’t it? Behind our generosity and our gift giving are a long list of valid reasons – to say thank you, goodbye, hello and welcome, to apologise or acknowledge someone’s hard work. The list goes on and on. We even have a ‘just because’ reason – which I think is the best reason of them all.

When blogger and author Dan Ariely wrote An Irrational Guide To Gifts he asked people what they thought made a good gift – he wanted to find out the basic principles and characteristics of good gifts. He came to an interesting conclusion – the ideal gift isn’t always about getting the person something that they can’t afford, or something they have no idea that they want. Rather, it’s all about alleviating the guilt associated with the purchase of an item. Whaaaaaaaaat?

Basically, when you hop online at www.pamperhampergifts.com.au and buy a loved one something decadent and special from our amazing selection of luxurious products and specially designed gift hampers, you are giving someone something they wouldn’t have necessarily bought for themselves. You are spoiling them and telling them "you deserve this gorgeous gift".

I don’t think I would buy myself a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Champagne, just because, but if I wanted to make a loved one feel special then I would get them the Veuve & Box of Chocolates. Who does not love enjoying a great champagne with delicious Australian chocolate?

And lastly, my favourite thank you gift would have to be the Wine Duo & Nibbles Hamper. This not only includes two great bottles of Robert Oatley's Signature wine - Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc - but there are some delicious treats to enjoy too, all you need to do is add the cheese!

Remember, whenever you give a gift, you make an impression. How and why you give it makes a statement about love and appreciation and emotion. At Pamper Hamper Gifts we take gift giving seriously and pride ourselves on being the most prestigious, efficient, impressive and luxurious gift box and hamper company in Australia. From the vast selection of products, to the easy ordering and delivery process, we are your one stop shop and take the guesswork and stress out of gift giving.
