What is a gift?
A gift is anything of value given to someone without expecting any kind of payment of item in return. In basic sense, a gift is meant to be a surprise but can be given knowingly as well, though people try to keep it a secret until the right moment. You won’t be able to find a single soul who’ll say that they don’t like to receive presents. If there’s an occasion or a party or a gathering or any event of pleasure. Gifts are provided as a token of good-luck hoping to create a positive imagery in that individual’s or people’s lives.

Importance of giving gifts
Popular festivities and occasions are the designated dates when people celebrate with each other and when you give something with a sense of not getting anything in return, making that certain someone feel special is motivating enough to make you give more. Gifts can’t be measured through monetary values. It all depends on the eyes and the preferences of the person you are giving the present to.
We learn this when we are young and from that age we always try to make everyone happy whenever we can. Primarily, your parents, then friends, and many others. It is a proven fact that the act of giving makes us happier than receiving.
Below are various reasons why people give gifts:
Gifts as an expression of love
If you are in a good friendship or relationship, you should always show how much you care for him or her. It is a good way to strengthen the bond between two. No need to wait for an occasion or event to give a precious gift to elevate the level of sincerity and love.
Gift to celebrate an occasion
A birthday, anniversary or any other day to remember. All these milestones should be celebrated by presenting something special to articulate the gesture of caring and remembering the day. Different people have different needs and giving them something useful yet picturesque can make them happy for a lifetime.
Gift for a new house
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 friends or relatives’ new home. Gifts could be something they can use in the new house or gifts for illuminating their happiness and well being. Useful gifts are perfect for this milestone in life.
Gift for a job or promotion
When someone gets a new job or an upgrade in pay-scale, people get excited and they celebrate it by giving a token of their gratitude to mark the event. It is a good way to share the presence of your achievement.
Gift as an Apology
There are times when things can go wrong and a simple sorry is never enough. Apologizing with a gift to show you feel bad from the heart can work in making amends towards a new bond.
Gifts for passing exams or achieving high grades
When your kid scores good marks and wants to do better with each passing grade, as a parent you can reward them by giving presents after setting a benchmark for them to touch. This will inspire them to work towards the goal and will inculcate their hunger to work harder.
Other than this, the idea of sending unusual gifts to your loved ones on their special days is quite amazing. It shows that you made extra effort in making, selecting something unique to create an ever-lasting memory. For your dear friends and relatives choosing creative objects like quirky glasses to hanging photo frames to wooden crafted bookcases can be a good opportunity to convey your love and affection.
No matter what the reason is or what the size of the gift is, the best presents are those that come from the heart.
That’s why they say ” yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift,, that’s why it’s called the present..
