Giving gifts to those who are dear to you is a way of celebrating the joy, friendship, and love you share.
Exchanging gifts can take place on multiple holidays but can also be given as acts of kindness. When you show that you are grateful for the presents you’ve been given, the happiness you feel transcends the material aspect of the gifts themselves.
While it feels good to receive something, it feels even better to give back.
Just as gift-giving has all sorts of traditions, gratitude also comes in a variety of forms.
To write a thank you message is to take the extra step of showing your appreciation for the people in your life who appreciate you.
