During special occasions like birthdays, it brings excitement and an eager spirit to unwrap the gifts. No matter what the content of the gifts is, people will feel happy and content to have received a gift from another. 3. When you give, you will also receive. When you give others gifts, you will also receive gifts from others. There will be a mutual gifting going on and both parties will benefit from it, in the way that both sides will feel contented, and cherish each other more. 4. It opens up your heart with love and compassion. When you give toys and gifts, it shows your care about others. Sometimes, gifting makes you think hard and well about the intended receiver, as you would think out of the box trying to get the right choice of gifts for him/her. Eventually, the more you give, the more love you are expressing to others. People need love.
5. It bonds people closer together. Gifting brings people closer together. It makes people appreciate others more, understanding how important it is to have each other by their sides.
Consider The Persons Interests And Age
Gifting is important to express love and care for others. However, choosing the right toys and gifts for others can be crucial so that it will bring greater joy to the receiver, not offending the receiver in any way. The person’s interests and age must be considered carefully before making decisions on choosing the right gifts.
What To Think About
Your grandfather has a great passion for books. He is one who prefers a quiet life and loves to hear past stories. He is in his sixties. For a gift on his sixty-eighth birthday, it would be nice if you buy him a book filled with historical events and stories. Your mom loves pastry. In her fifties, she spends most of her time in the kitchen figuring out what desserts to create next. However, the microwave oven does not work well. Buy her a new one on Mother’s Day. Your classmate is fourteen this year. He loves everything about outer space. He often requests from his father a visit to the Planetarium. Buy him a spaceship model as a gift. It would most probably brighten his day up. Your husband is a busy working forty-eight year old man. Whenever he has free time or is at home, he sure loves to have the stereo on, playing some jazz music, and may sometimes dance with the melody. It is your 28th wedding anniversary, and giving him a classical jazz CD which he does not have yet will make him smile. Your girlfriend loves everything pink and sweet. Pink flowers, pink handbags, pink lipstick, and so on. She is twenty this year, the same age as you. It would be more appropriate to give her a sweet baby pink watch.
Know What Might Be Lacking In The Person’s Life
A gift enlightens the receiver. Gift-giving does not only happen during special occasions or religious holidays; it should be anytime and anywhere. It is crucial to understand what is lacking in the person’s life in order to be able to choose the right gift for him/her.

Have A Close Look
Service gift. You know that your neighbor is facing a dilemma where both parents are busy working and they have a toddler son. They do not know how to take care of their child during weekdays. You can help taking care of the child while they are away, or advise them on choosing the right childcare centre for their son. This gift not only eases their burden, but also bonds two families together with better connection. Education gift. Your daughter loves to read, especially all about history. She scores best in her History subject; however, she is weak in her Mathematics. You can buy her a Mathematics exercise book; at the same time encourage her to make sure she scores well in Mathematics too. Money gift. One of your close relatives is facing financial difficulties. He failed running his business, and ended up having unpaid debts. You can help him by lending him some money; encourage him to move on with life or help him to pay some debts. Of course, it is not advisable to give great amounts of money or get into debt troubles; you may also get help from other relatives or friends around you.

Simple toys and gifts. This will surely give the receivers a surprise and brighten up their day. If the gift receiver loves his/her pet so much, buy a simple toy for his/her pet. Four children from a family down the road are always missing Christmas gifts; give them one each this year.

Pay Attention To What The Person Dreams About

Consider paying attention to what the person dreams about when gift giving as this will enhance the relationship between gift giver and gift receiver.

Why Is It Important? • You may get to know what he/she likes. For example, your teenage daughter always dreams about marrying a handsome prince. By the way she express her feelings, you know she is into glamorous gowns and beautiful dresses. Then, you know what is next on your to-do list; buy her a beautiful dress for her Prom Night. • You will allow him/her to realize his/her talent. Your young son would always watch you cook or play cooking with his sister. He dreams about being a chef someday. Giving him a junior cookbook and assisting him in cooking will allow him to practice cooking skills and learn ways to improve them. Talent does not come naturally; it requires persistence and practice too. • You can encourage him/her to pursue his/her dreams. Your grown niece wants to be a professor someday; you encourage her by giving her relevant books as presents. The young child in the orphanage always dreams of being a veterinary; you give him animal toys and a doctor play set. Who knows? They may be very successful in the future, and never forget you for your right gifts. • It pleases you too by not upsetting his/her feelings. Giving toys and gifts is to make him/her happy, and by paying attention to

what he/she dreams about, you make him/her happy. They will be grateful to you, and it will make your day.

Consider Durability And Practicality
Gifting should not be subjected to only considering the person’s interest and age, knowing what the person lacks of in life, and paying attention to what the person dreams about. A gift’s durability and practicality is important to make a person happy.

If it is fragile, it means nothing. The word “fragile” here means that the gift is not long lasting or durable. What can it mean, for instance, giving a cheap pen to your friend and it says “friends forever”, while the pen is unusable by the next day? If you really cherish the relationship with the gift recipient, try to spend more on the quality of the gift. It means a lot. A durable gift serves as an important memory. Let us say you are in a relationship. You give your loved one a book. Even if the relationship failed, the book may bring back all the sweet memories between you and her; even if she hates you so much that she threw the book away. If the book does not carry special meanings, why would she throw away the book? It is just a book anyway, right? A practical gift carries a significant meaning when being used. A mother will always think of her daughter who is currently staying overseas, reflecting what both had done together before- by using the cooking utensil her daughter gave her during the last Christmas. If the mother receives a pastry as gift instead, what will it help after it is eaten?

It will be great if it helps to relieve stress. An educational reference book for a student can help him/her gain more knowledge for his/ her studies. A favorite toy can bring greater ease for a child with disabilities. A religious bible can help one person’s spirituality. These show the importance of gifting.

The Dangers Of The Wrong Gift
Gifting is a tradition practice by people all around the world. Gifting usually happens during religious holidays; to serve as a motivation, appreciation, or a way to express love and care. But it has to be right.

What Can Happen
Dangers of the Wrong Gift 1. It gives the wrong message. This usually happens when both gift giver and recipient are of different races or cultures. For example, giving a clock as a gift to a Chinese friend is a no-no; giving a clock meaning, you are sending him/her off (death). Therefore, there is a need to understand and study about other’s culture before gifting. 2. It may not serve as a benefit. There are toys nowadays portraying animation characters or cartoons, while some come with weapons. It is not advisable to give gifts as such to young children, as it symbolizes violence. Some parents would even give their children pornographic materials, representing that their children are grown-ups. This may be bad influence on the children’s mind, thus creating social issues later on. 3. It may spark misunderstandings. This happens frequently when you give something that is far from the gift recipient’s preference. You can avoid this if you have done enough homework on choosing the best gift for others. If you cannot figure this out, do not be shy about asking. If you intend to make it a surprise, ask those who are around the gift recipient.

4. It can ruin a relationship. Generally, if you want to give someone a gift, that person means something to you and you cherish your relationship with him/her. If you give a wrong gift, it leads to misunderstandings, thus ruins an important relationship.
