Introduction to Christmas Gift 2020
I remember when I was in my childhood days, one Sunday, I was helping my father in collecting mulberries in the backyard of our house.
My father asked me to bring some boxes and beautiful wraps to compile a handsome amount of mulberries in each box and distribute them among relatives, friends, and neighbors.
At first, I got amused and later fell in wonder why is he willing to share these mulberries with them. I abruptly asked my father to know the reason behind he replied that we are sharing these as not everyone is blessed with the same thing and on this auspicious occasion one needs to share what he has with those who do not have it. This is called gifting.
Since that day, I kept on realizing the importance of offering gifts to loved ones. Gifting is the procedure where we impart things to those whom we love and care for with a consideration of their interest and likeness.
Gifts are not merely the objects we give to each other. They can have deep symbolic meaning and maintaining the relationship and expressing feelings towards our loved ones.
Through this blog, I shall bring the importance of gifting in light and expression of financial support in its happening.
Gift: sharing of love
When you give and receive gifts, it becomes a way of communicating and endorsing your bonds with others. There are many reasons why we gift presents to others. Here I am going to mention three out of them:
Through giving, we feel socially obliged; generosity is part of our nature, and once we receive a gift we are socially obliged to accept a gift, and to follow it we feel obliged to repay the favor.
On the one hand, we gift others because of altruistic reasons. It possible the true meaning of ‘Altruism’ which is doing something special for the benefit of others, and that is to be done selflessly.
When you buy a present for someone, then you are making him or she feels good and thus making them feel happy. However, giving makes the giver feel good.
How does a good gift giver look like?
Some people are better at getting gifts than others. They are called as a good gift giver and follows a specific social behavior.
The giver should be creative in his choice of gift and empathetic towards the receiver and should know to invest his time and effort efficiently.
While getting a girl you are dating, the bouquet can be a good move, but a car might seem a bit over the top.
Is there any perfect gift or its mere imagination?
Several types of research show that a perfect gift should have some special characteristics. Let us understand with an example.
A lady decided to buy a luxury watch for her husband on Christmas Eve, her husband find it surprisingly good and got happy to have it.
In this example, all the glimpses of a perfect gift can be seen:
- Lady showed an effort to buy a watch for her husband; obviously, she had spent in exchange for that gift.
- Gift purchased with a good intention, it means she is thinking to tackle husband’s routine issues.
- Watch is luxury, which means it must be expensive
- Gifting a watch to a working man is seems the appropriate move
- Receiving an unexpected gift is very surprising and makes the receiver full of pleasure.
However, spending long hours of your life in search of a perfect gift for someone who might beat the strategy. Imagine that in addition to the lady’s perfect watch, her husband also got a watch from his parents; suddenly, the perfect gift does not seem so perfect anymore.
Gift as a means of representing the culture
Here in the European world, sharing gifts is often celebrated on Christmas Day, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and Easter Day, and also small days dedicated to the most important people of our lives such as mother, father, brother, sister, grandparents, and friends.
Gifting culture is not new to us. This culture we have been following for a long time.
Types of gifts
Personalized gift items can also be given for Christmas gifts. They are available in a wide range, and you can personalize them according to the receiver’s end.
The wide variety can be from gifting jewelry, stationary, food items, soft kinds of stuff for kids, high-tech gadgets for the big one, sporty materials to the sportsperson or sports lover, showcases for home decoration including glassware, brassware, etc.
Arranging gifts for several people known or random, Christmas is an occasion when we do not see blood relation and want to share happiness with everyone, including our daily helpers. It all consumes a lot of monetary expenses and cannot be possible with low income and fewer savings.
Christmas loans for everyone willing to manage the expenses for buying gifts and encourage others to spread happiness.
This kind of help you can find by asking ‘I need money now’ to a direct lender and he can ready to help you out in any case.
The gift might be big or small, light or heavy, cheap or expensive, these factors do not work, but it should meet the type of need a receiver has.
Every year I do not forget to bring gifts for them who have importance in my life and who have their part in making my life beautiful.
