Giving gifts is a beautiful expression of love and appreciation. Many people go to great lengths to find the perfect gift for their loved ones.
One reason people give each other gifts is because it's the version of the "language of love." A thoughtful gift can have the same effect as a thousand beautifully crafted words. It can show the person to whom you are giving a gift that you value and appreciate the relationship you both share.
The sense of affirmation one gets when you get a gift can also help stimulate the feelings of happiness and strengthen the bond between two or more people.
