Tangible or Intangible Gifts? Which Do You Prefer?

Most of us probably received a gift in the past. Who wouldn't be happy when receiving a gift?

I'm the happiest when I receive a gift, even though it's just a simple thing with low value. Who cares about the value? It's the thought that counts!

Most people values gifts so much that even though a long time has passed they still keep the gift. It's because most of us gives more value not to the gift but to the person who gave it.

There are many reasons why people give out gifts maybe it's for an anniversary, graduation, to congratulate someone or to simply show 'gratitude'. Now that ber months have come, this is the time that people are into gift giving. But wouldn't it be more meaningful when someone gives us a gift with no particular reason at all? It means that the person thought of us even without any special ocassion.

Gifts can be tangible or intangible. 

Tangible gifts are those that can be touched or has physical appearance. Usually these are the gifts that can be purchased and can be wrapped  such as clothes, toys, cellphones, bags or any item that is on someone's wishlist.

Intangible gifts are those that cannot be purchased.

It feels good to receive a material gift, but personally, I love intangible gifts more. Those are the love from people that matters to me, the time they give so we can do meaningful things together and the support and encouragement coming from my friends and loved ones.

But the most important intangible gift that we have ever received is the gift of life. In this day and age where a lot of people from around the world are striving and fighting hard so they can live, it's basic for us to be thankful for the life that we have. Be thankful that we are not one of those who are fighting just so they can still enjoy living their life. Because we are alive, we have the freedom to enjoy the beautiful things in life such as good food, good music, good friends and of course the other material things that we have.

There is no doubt about the happiness that we feel whenever we receive a gift be it tangible or intangible gift. But there is more happiness and satisfaction if we are the gift giver instead of being the receiver. Just as Jesus Christ said: "There is more happiness in giving than in receiving." It feels wonderful seeing someone smile because of a simple gift that we gave and regardless of the reason for giving a gift nothing feels great than giving a gift that comes from the heart - those are special and indeed the best.

Actually we receive intangible gifts everyday but we just don't notice it or we don't bother. A mother who prepares your meals everyday, a father who works for your needs everyday, a sister who smiles for you and shares your gossips.., a brother who carries your load whenever you need someone to do it for you. A lil sis and lil brother who plays with you and throws naughty prank at you. Those gift we can't find in any famous department stores. 😊

I find your post a bit chaotic. I have a hard time figuring out what you mean to say after I read the title.

Personally, I do not care about gifts. I do not like to be overloaded with things I don't like, want, or need. I want my house as empty as possible because it feels better to me. Piece of mind. For sure I am not going to save something I don't want or like. If people give me such a present it means they do not know me. A bad gift is not a sign of appreciation or someone did his best for you. Not where I live. If you do your best you are creative, know what a person likes or needs, and/or you make it yourself. It's easy to go to a shop and just buy something or order it online just to give something. In the world where I live it's common and the easiest thing to do although many no longer bring along a present. If you are invited you no longer bring flowers or food along as a thank you for the invitation.

The gift of life is not a gift and if you ask me it has nothing to do with the title you choose. Life is not a gift, you are put into the world by someone out of a selfish deed. Because your parents want you, need to prove they love each other because they do not care because they need a donor for the other child because someone wants to adopt you because they can sell you because they need children to work for them, take care of them when they are old, and so on. There's no gift in it just expectations, a hard life, frustrations, the battle to survive, depressions, fear and if you are lucky a better life without abuse and hunger then fellow people.

If it comes to your title: A gift you can see, touch, or a gift you can not touch... A gift should one notice, be able to touch or smell or hear. It doesn't matter if it's a song sung for me, someone makes my bed or washes the car, bakes cookies or helps in the garden or babysits. A gift I need to make up in my mind is not a gift. At least not a gift given by someone else. To me it sounds like a cheap trick..."pretend I gave you something".

A small gesture is a gift to, it is something people will save forever because it does good but "gifts" like "I love you" or "I gave you life" I can not appreciate.

I'm the happiest when I receive a gift, even though it's just a simple thing with low value. Who cares about the value? It's the thought that counts!

Most people values gifts so much that even though a long time has passed they still keep the gift. It's because most of us gives more value not to the gift but to the person who gave it.

Nowadays, not every child is fortunate enough to have both parents to nurture them. As for me, I am lucky to be raised by two loving parents. They provide shelter and care so that we can live comfortably.💟💟💟

Gifts from our love one's are priceless, the excitement, love and appreciation that we can feel is too much. It doesn't matter if its tangible or intangible but the most important is how we appreciate what they give. Even if its big or small, cheap or expensive, we don't care about that.

In my opinion i like both. Tangible and intangible because as you said we value the person who gave the gift to us.

As for tangible, i can receive this through simple things and memories that's why i love to receive both😁❤

In my 30 years of existence here.. my tangible gifts that I've received can be counted, but the intangible ones can't. Everyday is a blessing, every single thing we have in our life is a blessing, every day you woke up and night you go to bed is a blessing, the job you have, the foods, clothes, families and friends is a blessing.. but people often consider those things as normal, they don't give value onto those intangible gifts God gave them. They're more happy receiving tangible gifts than appreciating every blessings we received everyday, and those are the most important intangible gifts we ever had.

First, I'm surprised to know that you're already 30. You look 27 or 28 on your avatar lol. I agree, we can never count the intangible gifts that we receive everyday and most people usually takes those things (the ones you mentioned) for granted. Some complains about their life but that life they complains about os actually what someone badly wants. Others never value the job they have but that's the job that someone's working so hard to get. So we have to be thankful regardless of what we have and what we receive.

Be thankful that we are not one of those who are fighting just so they can still enjoy living their life

  • Life is the most precious gift that God has given us so used our life in this world wisely and with purpose.

It feels wonderful seeing someone smile because of a simple gift that we gave and regardless of the reason for giving a gift nothing feels great than giving a gift that comes from the heart - those are special and indeed the best.

  • The feeling is great when you give that comes from your heart. Giving money to the beggar is the same feeling when you let the older people sit on the bus instead of you.

Tangible gifts is important nowadays but for me I preferred intangible gifts. And you know what? I already recieved those gift. It is both intangible and tangible hehe.

My brother gives my little one an allowance. He said it for the snacks of my baby - Its tangible

Then during our conversation he thanked me because on those time that he needs help Im there with him so he said its just payback time - Its intangible .

Both are gifts but I am touched with the intangible one hehe.

Is it fine loving both intangible and tangible gifts? Because I'll choose both of them. I like tangible gifts because I am a too sentimental person. Maybe this will shock you but I still have the gifts I got when I was in my grade school. I always keep the gifts they have given to me.

But, I also love intangible gifts, they are priceless. The support, affection, care, and love I get from important people in my life were to be treasured.
