It has been clearly shown through many studies that giving gifts makes us happy. The work of researchers in economics of happiness explain that expenses for others are part of the rare expenses which durably increase the happiness of individuals. On the other hand, spending for oneself only affects happiness in a very ephemeral way.
Giving gifts is a way of deepening connection between friends, lovers, family members, clients, or even strangers. When explorers of the last century went to meet unknown tribes, they always brought trinkets to offer to the chief to show their good intentions.
Today, gift giving is an integral and inseparable part of our culture. We give gifts during Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays or even to congratulate someone or as a random act of kindness.
Not all gifts have to be expensive or materialistic in nature. Many prefer thoughtful and sweet gestures to elaborate and expensive gifts. Many of us have more than enough, yet we don’t have enough time: Time to rest, relax, for adventure or to be together.
The best course of action is to combine a meaningful, gracious gift with a beautiful experience. Before we talk about some gift ideas, here are some suggestions and ideas to create a memorable experience and atmosphere when you give the gift.
Does your beloved want once to not have to cook?
Invite them for a dinner and make a donation on their behalf for a child suffering from malnutrition. In this beautiful way, you can thank them for their delicious meals that they prepared for you and celebrate all the moments you shared food together.
Does your beloved one dream of adventures?
Maybe the person you want to surprise is more of the "outdoor adventurer" type? So put on your hiking boots, prepare a picnic and let them choose the path.
Another suggestion is buying them plane tickets to their dream vocation or a ticket in the VIP section for their favourite artist’s concert.
If you’re thinking about giving a gift a child then maybe surprise them and take them to their favourite movie or Disneyland and that will be the ultimate gift.
Your special person wants a pool and spa day?
Everyone sometimes needs to be a little spoiled. Invite your friend or significant other to the thermal baths or Turkish baths.
So now you planned out the atmosphere and chose a setting, what about the gift?
Finding the perfect gift can be a time-consuming activity with so many options available. Your gift should demonstrate thoughtfulness and care and show that you put a considerable amount of energy and effort into it.
The scavenger hunt for the perfect meaningful gift ends here. We put together a list of meaningful beautiful gifts from our catalog to surprise your loved ones.
