There is nothing like a surprise gift from the person you love. When you feel all dejected and low, a nice little gift is sure to lift your spirits. The best thing about a present is that, it carries a bit of the person who gives it to you. The amount of happiness one experiences when their special one gifts them just what they wanted can not be described in words. Every gift is special. A hand-made card or a strand of beads from you little brother or sister is worth cherishing for the rest of your life. Even a little flower of appreciation can be special enough to be preserved for years in the secret confines of your diary!
So, what is is about gifts anyway? Imagine this: You had a tough day with your grouchy boss, miss your evening bus and end up walking home all the way. The minute you enter all you want to do is yell at everyone who comes in the way. Instead, the house is empty with a tiny little package wrapped in glittery gold paper on the table. You walk toward it, see that it's from your husband and open it. Inside, its the most beautiful ring you have seen – a simple platinum one set with three diamonds. Is not that enough to energize you for a full month ?! See what change a special gift can do to you!
A gift need not necessarily be an expensive one. If you have only a few pennies left in your pocket at the end of the month and wish to gift something to your mum on her birthday, try making something yourself and see her face glow! Or even a flower with a simple note along will make her smile with tears in her eyes. It's your brother's birthday next week and you do not have any money to spare. What do you gift him? How about making him a photo album consisting of his pictures from his very first day on earth? He will absolutely love it even more than any gadget.
If you have just begun a life of your own, surprise your dad with the latest mobile phone in the market. Christmas is just round the corner and what better way to express your love than presents? If you wish to gift your loved one a high-end gadget, then its time to start planning and saving already! Be it the latest LED TV for your dad or a washing machine for your mum, some gifts do need a lot of planning in advance.
Gifts must be chosen with a lot of care and thought, for they are depict how well we have understood the recipient. Choose something out of love, never for the sake of it. And once in a while, present something to those you love for no reason but to see the warmth and kindness in their eyes and the smile in their lips.
