Introduction & the State of Gift-Giving

In todays modern culture, gift giving has become a little be misconstrued in that it is seen by many as something that they should expect. This mentality ultimately leads to a sense of entitlement, where in years past, gifts were something unexpected and always highly appreciated. Now there are instances (like in the video below), where individuals receive gifts and do not appreciate a) the gift itself or b) the thought behind it.

In this blog, we aim to bring some of the magic back to gift giving, and will be discussing everything from the philosophical nuances of giving presents, to providing actual suggestions for various occasions. We may also get into a little DIY, who knows! You’ll just have to stick around to find out!

For now, we’ll leave you with this video, which shows exactly how not to react when someone gives you a gift (don’t worry, we’ll post something much more positive for the next video)!
