When it comes to gift-giving, most people think about the holiday season, birthdays, graduations — you get the picture. It’s mostly expected to give a gift for major events or holidays, but what if we told you that there are plenty of reasons why giving benefits both the recipient and yourself?

There are many reasons to give gifts, as it builds stronger connections, lifts your spirits, and improves your overall mental and physical health.

Share the love

According to South University, gifting usually leaves people feeling more content than getting presents. Upon performing a completely selfless act of kindness, one’s psychological health has been shown to improve. 

To add on, a National Institute of Health study states that while giving presents and getting them stimulates parts of the brain associated with reward, gift giving alone activates a part of the brain that causes people to like and appreciate each other more. This form of generosity can therefore strengthen social relationships, which are a key part of mental health. 

So what’s stopping you from waiting until a special occasion to give a thoughtful gift to someone you care about? Sometimes the most meaningful gifts are the ones that are given without the need of a special occasion or expectation.
Sometimes it’s the unexpected gifts that really make a difference.

Part of the 5 Love Language

Gift-giving is one of the five love languages for a reason. Words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch. You tend to feel closer to someone when you give them a gift while they feel more linked to you as well. This is because a thoughtful gift can lessen the distance between friends or strengthen bonds for those who are near to you. Dante’s Luxury offers a selection of gift packs for you to spoil that special person in your life.

Connecting with people through gift-giving boosts your relationship and builds trust between one another, so when you want to enjoy the emotional benefits of a strong friendship, give them a thoughtful gift.

The Power Of Gratitude

It’s no secret that those who receive a gift feel a sense of gratitude, but did you know the giver can feel it as well? Not only is giving a gift a common way to express gratitude but watching the receiver’s positive reaction evokes that same appreciation. In positive psychology research conducted by Harvard University, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.

Gift Inspiration

When one person gives, it inspires another to do the same. Even though giving your best friend gifts like a new T-shirt or hat is super cool, try giving to a stranger, a neighbor, or someone you haven’t talked to in a long time so you can spark inspiration that can cause them to want to do the same for others.
