Gift giving is the cement of social relationships. A range of feelings may be involved in gift giving. A gift, for instance, may be inspired by sympathetic feelings or feelings of being involved in someone else's life.
Giving and receiving gifts is one of the most pleasurable pursuits connected with any special occasion. We all have fond memories of new year celebration, birthdays,starting a new business or other celebrations when we have exchanged gifts. We have loved that special feeling when we received something truly special, or someone we cared about obviously loved a present we gave them.
Underlying this custom is an important purpose: appreciation. We give people gifts to show them that we are grateful for them and value the role they play in our lives.
When you give gifts, you are giving something willingly without wanting something in return. Making someone feel special is more than enough reason to make you give more. It tells the receiver that you were thinking about them. It has been proven that the act of giving makes us happier than receiving
This can’t be measured by monetary value. The happiness you get from opening a gift is only temporary, but giving provides a more self-fulfilling experience that lasts for a long period of time.
No matter what the reason is for giving a gift, the best presents are those that come from the heart.
