After exchanging glances, she unwrapped her gift. The reaction was “eww.”
How would you feel if your gift is called horrible? You will definitely feel broken.
We don’t expect anything in return for a gift.
But is this true?
No. We do expect a gesture of appreciation. Isn’t it?
Our little appreciation could change the ambience. Those glittery eyes can speak a feeling worth a lifetime. It has a power to transform the simple moment into a special one.
Here are five reasons why you should appreciate horrible gifts in a relationship.
1. Loaded with love
We can’t imagine a gift from a stranger. It is only our loving near and dear ones who give us a gift. So the gift is undeniably loaded with lots of love. Whether it is a celebration or a random gesture of love, gifts hold a lot of affection. Love has nothing to do with lavish gifts. Even if it is a small one, it is priceless. Love is precious after all.
2. Efforts involved
There are some really serious efforts involved in choosing a right gift. Estimation of a budget, interests of the recipient, deciding the gift and availability of the same at the shop is a hefty task. There are times when people like impressing the recipient by showing their skills and creativity. Handmade gifts require an investment of time. Investing time in arranging the best gift for your loved one is certainly an effort worth appreciation.
3. It made you feel special
Gifts are one of the best ways to make your loved one feel special. Unboxing a gift is associated with an unboxing of love. A gift is nothing but a small expression of love with the power of making one overjoyed. It shows care and attention the person has shown towards you.
4. Your importance
We do something only for people we value. Gifts are a token of love for those lovely people in our lives. There are gifts for various moments in life. To say thank you, sorry, congratulations, best wishes etc., we give gifts. Value of the recipient is not measured by the price tag but the love tag that showed you are important.
5. Not everyone is lucky enough
We all are not lucky enough to give and take gifts. You cannot buy a gift and present it to a random person. You need a special person for that. There are instances in our life when we value things only after losing it. So, even if you are gifted a horrible gift, assure yourself of being lucky enough. Appreciate it, treasure it.
Gifts can be horrible, but please keep in mind these five reasons why you should appreciate it. Enjoy every gift, no matter how big or small it is.
Gift is a way of showing our love, care, and importance. Don’t fight on how horrible it is, instead enjoy the feeling of being special and loved.
