Gifting is a surprisingly complex and important part of human life, helping to define relationships and strengthen the bonds with family and friends.
Some researchers believe evolutionary forces may have favored gift giving. Men who were the most generous may have had the most success with women. (Notably, the use of food in exchange for sexual access and grooming has been documented in our closest ape relative, the chimpanzee.) Women who were skilled at giving — be it extra food or save the food — helped sustain the family provider as well as her children.
Frustrated by recession,stressed life style, crowd,traffic, people can decide at this time of year to pick out of gift giving altogether.
People who refuse to accept or exchange gifts during the holidays, these experts say, may be missing out on an important connection with family and friends.
Moreover, psychologists say it is often the giver, rather than the recipient, who reaps the biggest psychological gains from a gift.
Giving to others increases our feelings for them and makes us feel effective and caring,
the right gifts show the person that you know them well and like them a lot.
So look at the holiday season as an opportunity,to learn more about what your friends and families like and dislike–and make your relationships stronger.
If you're still in need of a gift idea, we have a few for you.
