Hey guys, how is it going? I must say I've been hella busy. Friday and Monday are public holidays, so we're working extra hard to finish what we have to do by Thursday. It has not been easy but I believe it will be worth it when I'm relaxing during the holidays.

Also, my colleague at work will be celebrating a birthday soon and as I was thinking of gifts, I decided to write about gifting today.

First off, what is gifting about? This is a process of making or buying something nice for someone else or making a nice gesture in return for nothing. The aim is to make the person happy. There are several reasons why someone might want to give a gift to another person such as:

  • Birthdays

Birthdays are one of the most common reasons for getting someone a gift. The situation calls for celebrating the person as they turn a new age. Birthdays are a stage of personal growth or advancement that allows one to celebrate themselves and be thankful for how far they have come.

  • Holidays

Holidays, especially religious holidays such as Christmas, kwanzaa etc. These holidays usually hold a level of significance for the gift giver and recipient as someday

  • Personal or Professional Advancements

These include the celebration of getting a new job, a promotion, reaching a workout goal etc. Getting ahead in life is definitely something that should be celebrated and it warrants giving a gift that says congratulations or shows you are happy for them

  • New Life Stage

This includes celebrating marriage, motherhood, mourning a loss, moving to a new place, divorce etc. Change is very constant in life, whether good or bad. While we may give congratulatory gifts, there are times when we may have to give a grief of condolence gift such as a card or gift basket.

  • Formal Event

A formal event may require or prompt one to get a gift. This includes situations like weddings, baptisms etc. The gift should be something appropriate to the situation.

  • No Event

Other times, we don't need a special occasion to get someone a gift. You can simply do something nice for them to remind them that you care and you have them in mind. Gifts like these are usually much appreciated as the recipient may not be expecting it.

Things to consider when giving gifts include:

  1. What your relationship with the recipient is. This is to ensure that you get them a gift that is appropriate. If it is a close friend or family member, it might be OK to gift them a massage session but it might be weird to gift that to a new coworker. Some gifts may be considered too much or inappropriate, depending on one's relationship with the recipient

  2. What they may need. Think about things they may have mentioned they needed, something they may have complained about that needs fixing. Also consider what is going on in their lives. If they just got a new job, you might want to get them something that will help like a suitcase, work shoes etc.

  3. What they have done for you before. You can consider getting a gift in a way that reciprocates a kind gesture they have done. This will affect how much you may budget on the gift you are getting.

Thank you very much for reading!

I am really bad when it comes to givng gifts, but I guess it's probably I always think about something big and expensive when considering what to gift someone. I mostly end up just buying food or drink (wine) 😆

Let me stimulate your mind. We all know the world we live in can be seen as a 'give and take' world. What if this gift your gifting another is a social obligation to them to do the same to you too when you're celebrating say... Your birthday?

Giving our loved ones Gift is what we really need do wholeheartedly, it can be on their days of celebration and it can also be on normal days, but either ways we should try and give them gifts that they will appreciate, and not what they have no interest in.

The importance of gift can not overemphasized, they bring joy and happinesses anytime received. I've not heard of MASSAGE as a gift. Someone should come and gift that gift, I need it

Gifts also means giving love to someone. Giving gifts may play a huge impact on somebody's life, that's why I usually buy gifts whenever my family, friends,loveones celebrate their birthday or maybe on special occasion.
