Gifts and Love - Why They’re One And The Same

We are all surrounded by people we love. We have family, friends, and other well-wishers who want us to succeed in life. We love them in return. However, loving someone isn’t considered a tangible feeling. No matter how unconditional our love is for someone, not expressing it appropriately eventually leads to people not recognising our true feelings. Here’s where gifts come in. Gifting is the most basic form of expressing our love. People love receiving gifts, especially gifts that remind them of the bond you have with them. The origin of the word, ‘gift’, comes from the old Norse word ‘gipt’. Over time, the word merged with the English term give, creating the word ‘gift’ as we know it today. 

Gifts can be physical as well as emotional, but above all, gifts, in their essence are the thought behind the tangible present. People like gifts that you can get from any shop, but they love gifts that have a story behind them. Specially-made gifts that tell the person that you’ve been thinking of them when you’ve bought or made them, are a once-in-a-lifetime treat that they will treasure for the rest of their lives. 

Gifting is a worldwide love language. Around the world, there are lots of festivals where people engage in gifting. The ones that come to mind are Christmas, Easter, Ramadan, and Diwali, among many others. Apart from this, birthdays, anniversaries, and weddings are also times when the special person/people of the day receive gifts from their loved ones. Having said that, gifting isn’t something that is restricted to just special occasions. People give gifts to each other all the time. After all, love doesn't need a time and place!
