Why Gift Giving is Important

Gift giving is something that should not be a chore. It must come from the heart. When you give, you should be 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.

While it feels good to be on the receiving end, there’s a feeling of self-gratification when you are the one who is doing the giving. 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.

We learn this when we are young. As children, we give our parents good grades that make them happy. A simple act can provide a good response. It has been proven that the act of giving makes us happier than receiving. It doesn’t matter how valuable the gift may be.

Below are some reasons to give gifts.

To be remembered…

Often times at a special event, like a staff party or team building exercise you want to provide a special memento of the occasion. It’s always fun to have something to take home. In the case of a professional event, maybe you want to thank a guest speaker or reward a prize winner. Whatever the reason, there is no doubt that everyone loves to receive a thoughtful event gift! Especially one that reflects where the event is taking place. Such gifts can make and leave a fabulous impression!

To say “thanks”…

There are some instances when you need to give back to someone who has helped you or provided you a favor. Gift giving is an act that can show that you are thankful. The receiver will truly feel your gratitude when you give gifts for elevating happiness and well-being.

As an expression of love…

Gift giving is an act of self-gratification. It is a good way of strengthening relationships. If you are in a friendship or a relationship, you should always show the other person how much you care for him or her. You don’t need to wait for as special occasion to give a gift, give one to show how much you love someone anytime. Gifts of chocolate have especially been seen as an expression of love throughout the years.

To appreciate someone special…

They say that actions speak louder than words is true. There’s no better way to say you appreciate someone than through gift giving. You can make someone happy with something simple. It doesn’t need to be expensive. You can give a token of appreciation to your father, mother, sister, brother, or anyone that has done something nice for you. Corporate businesses and small business owners can also give gifts of appreciation to their employees for their hard work or for their special contribution to the business. It motivates the staff and encourages them to perform better. A token of appreciation can do wonders to increase the performance from your workforce.

Giving to keep in touch…

Not seeing someone often should not be an excuse to ruin one’s relationship. Gifts can help in strengthening relationships. You can give a gift to stay in touch and keep that person in your life. There’s no better way to say you still care, than sending something special.

To celebrate anniversaries…

It is important for married couples to remember the day of their anniversary. This thoughtful gesture can be achieved by giving a gift. An anniversary can also be for a business venture. You can celebrate the milestone with a gift. You can also give to people who started their own businesses. This is one way to show that you remember them during a special moment in their lives.

To celebrate a new home…

You might not have the time to help someone move in or out of a new home, but you can give the person a gift for a new beginning. A new house is a big step, especially for people who are starting their own family.

If you received an invitation to a housewarming party, it is customary that you would need to provide a gift to the new homeowners. It is also proper to bring a gift during the first visit to your friend’s new home. Gifts could be something they can use in the new house or gifts for elevating their happiness and wellbeing like chocolate and champagne to celebrate!

For celebrating birthdays…

A person’s birthday is a special milestone that should be celebrated each year. There’s no age limit for it. Whether the person is young or mature, it is important to give special attention to the person during one’s special day and be happy for being a year older. Making someone feel special during one’s birthday can be done with a thoughtful gift.

To apologize…

There are times when you make a mistake, and a simple apology is not enough to make the other party forgive you. During times when words are not enough, it is best to express it with a gift. It will show that you are really sorry for what you have done.
