Earlier this month, Instagram asked you to share the most meaningful gifts you’ve ever given or comforted those you loved. We asked our One Question participants what was the best gift they’ve ever given or received this month. We also share the gifts that were bought in a store that holds a special place in our hearts.
If you are looking for a present for your best friend or family member, spend some time thinking about how to give them something personal. Instead of running into the store to spend money, you can customize some special gift, that they will enjoy.
According to a 2017 research experiment, it is an act of kindness to give someone their time, not only a generous and thoughtful gift to a friend or loved one, it also has a positive impact on yourself. If you have a habit of giving your time around Christmas and continue to share time and attention, your muscle of kindness will continue to gain strength. The positive results of contemporary gifts may not cost you financially, but they mean the world to the person or people you choose.
If you want to impress your loved ones, you will want to choose a gift that is customized, unique and thoughtful. Their familial and emotional closeness determines how personal and substantial the gift will be. You will also have an idea of how valuable your present is to your friends and loved ones.
Some people have a knack for selecting the best gifts, but not me, because gifts stay with us long after the giver has given and the recipient has received. For me, the key to a great gift is something that is long remembered and used. Gift honors in an obvious and subtle way the reasons why you and your recipient are connected and where your relationship comes from.
