Gifting Made Easy - Gifting Tips
Gifts are necessary acts to show you care and are an integral part of celebrating an event or special day. Gifts can symbolise love, affection, forgiveness or simple kindness.
Gift-giving is determined as a natural social behavior in humans. It helps strengthen and boost relationships with each other. Giving things that others want to have is a simple way to let others know that you care about them.
Why do we give gifts?
Research shows that the act of giving gifts helps us achieve two goals. The first is to make the recipient happy. The second is to strengthen the relationship between the giver and the recipient.
Can we just give cash?
One might think that it would be easier to hand out cash as the recipient can buy exactly what they most desire. But cash is considered unthoughtful because it requires no effort and seems to put a dollar value on the relationship.
A better alternative to cash is a gift card as it requires some effort and allows some thoughtfulness in which gift card to purchase. Gift cards also support the local business and helps small businesses especially during these Covid-19 pandemic.
How much does the thought of gift-giving should cost?
Gift givers often tend to assume that more expensive gifts will be acknowledged as being more thoughtful; however, research shows it turns out gift recipients appreciate expensive and inexpensive gifts similarly (citation link here). A psychological study found out that, gift recipients actually feel closer to those who give convenient gifts (citation link here).
