Why Gift Giving Is Good

Gift giving has been a long tradition that dates back thousands of years as far back as man can remember. To understand why we are so captivated with giving gifts, it is essential to go back in time to find the history of giving gifts.

In primitive cavemen culture, the giving of gifts was fairly common as it was used to show love and affection towards one another. Later during the Egyptian era, gifts were most notably given to their pharaohs who built massive pyramids to store their wealth for the afterlife. In Roman times people would present each other with good luck gifts, which lasted for centuries and later influenced all of the Western civilization onwards. By the Medieval age, gifts were used to secure the personal favor of the king or show allegiance in times of war. Today gift giving is still part of our everyday culture and defines who we are and the message we want to send with our gift.

Although it is a tradition, did you know that gift giving can also have a psychological effect on the giver and receiver? In the standardized assessment of individuals who both gave and received gifts, greater happiness appeared to rest in those who gave. The act of giving, no matter how big or small, makes us feel good.

Giving gets under our skin in the best possible way. While it feels good to be on the receiving end, there’s a feeling of self-gratification when you’re the one who is doing the giving. This can’t be measured by monetary value. The happiness you get from opening a gift is only temporary, but giving provides a more self-fulfilling experience that lasts for a long period. Furthermore, when we give without expecting anything in return, we are improving our psychological health.

A significant part of celebrations is the exchanging of gifts. Here are the most common reasons why people give gifts

  • As an expression of love.

  • To celebrate a birthday.

  • To appreciate someone special.

  • To keep in touch.

  • To say thank

  • For anniversaries

  • To apologize

  • For passing exams or achieving high grades
