Giving Less Expensive Gifts But Giving More Happiness
Special occasions and gift giving always come hand in hand.
Holidays like the Christmas season, birthdays, weddings,
anniversaries, graduation, Valentines Day, fathers' day,
mothers' day, or on whatever special occasions, people give and
Children love to receive gifts. Senior citizens treasure being
remembered. Almost everybody loves surprises. And giving gifts
can make someone smile with great joy and happiness.
Perhaps you know of someone who wants something so much but that
person just couldn't afford it. When he/she unexpectedly
receives that treasured thing he/she wants so dearly, you
certainly would create so much happiness for that person.
Sometimes it is not just the gift that counts, but it is the
happiness that you have given that person that makes a great
gift. One particular example is of an old woman who wanted a grandfather clock so
much in her life. Grandfather clocks are generally known to be
very expensive. It used to be, only the very rich and wealthy
people can afford one. The daughters of this woman found a
website that sold quality but very affordable grandfather clocks.
The daughters, though living far apart from their mom, decided
to give their mom a grandfather clock one Christmas season.
Their mother never expected to receive a very unexpected gift
that upon receiving her grandfather clock, she simply kept
calling her daughters several times in a day simply to thank
them for such a wonderful gift.
Yes, gifts don't have to be very expensive. If you, the giver,
does not have enough budget for a particular gift idea, perhaps
you may be able to find an alternative gift with great quality
but affordable enough not to make you broke. Or perhaps, you
would like to search somewhere else where a particular gift you
have in mind, might be sold at a lower or bargain price.
In any special occassion, it is a great fulfillment for the gift
giver to put a smile to someone they love. That smile and
happiness could be because that person dearly loves the gift you
gave, or they trully love being specially remembered.
Don't just think of very expensive gifts. Give a gift with a
high priority of happiness for your loved one in mind.
