The Selfish Act Of Giving by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems.

flower deliveryAt first thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are truly surprised by it, is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves.

When I shop for a gift for someone I try to to find something that let's them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is something they can look back on and say, "Laura really knows me and appreciates the fact that we have this in common." Conversely, it's great to be on the other end and realize your friend or family member cares about you so much that they took the time to find this unique item that you both enjoy. It's a personalized gift that you know was bought just for you.

Often it doesn't even have to be a material gift; an act can mean all the same things. A friend recently had told me no one understood what she wanted on her birthday. She was always cooking dinner for everyone else on their birthday and was hoping someone would finally do it for her. She told her family that's what she wanted most. Yet everyone totally misread what she was looking for and took her out to dinner. While she had a nice dinner and enjoyed their company, it wasn't what she was looking for.

My friend was looking for someone to say I'm listening to what you want. She was looking for someone to put as much into a gift for her as she does for them. I wanted her to know that I was listening and that there was someone out there that truly understood her. I showed up on her doorstep the day of her birthday with a pan of mostaccioli, garlic bread, salad, salad dressing and a bottle of wine. She had told me eating my mostaccioli one time earlier that I could make it for her any time.

The joy on my friend's face was what I was looking and hoping for. She was excited, not that she didn't have to cook dinner for herself, but that someone was willing to make that effort for her. She was also now secure with the knowledge that there was someone out there that understood what she wanted and that truly listened. She told me later that she had told everyone she knew that I had done that for her. She wanted others to know that we were able to connect in that way.

I try to do this for all the gifts I give on Christmas, but the process can sometimes be daunting. We get so busy at that time of the year, and depending on how many people are on a gift list, finding a personalized gift for each person can be time-consuming. Usually some end up being very personalized, some just something I hope the person will enjoy.

But there's always that one gift. There's always that one gift every year I just can't wait until it is opened. This is the one gift I have found that I know will show that I understand and listen. Seeing the look from the recipient of acknowledgment of our relationship and of what I put into finding that particular item is all I need to make the gift worth every penny and every moment that was put into it.

Sure, I enjoy when the same is done for me. I enjoy knowing that someone understands and listens to me as well, but I don't get the same sense of accomplishment when the situation is in reverse. I don't get to pat myself on the back for a job well done. I don't get the validation.

What it comes down to is I'm looking to please myself when I give a great gift. I'm looking to say I set out to do this and accomplished it. I set out to find the perfect gift to show someone I understand and care. It is not at all selfless. I did it for myself in the end run. It is better to give than to receive, and that is because when giving, we're still receiving.

Unique birthday gift baskets and gifts to show that special someone you care.

shop-online-for-birthday-presentsDo you regularly rush around in your lunch break, desperately seeking a birthday gift? Do you just grab the first suitable birthday card that you see, because you are so short of time? If so, then the chances are that you are spending more money than you need to on birthdays. The good news is that, with a little forward planning, you can save not only money but alsotime.

Shopping for birthdays can be time-consuming and expensive. Even if you have just one birthday a month to shop for, the cost of twelve birthdays a year can add up to a fairly substantial amount. If you have children, you will have the extra cost of buying presents and cards for all of their friends. Here are some ways of saving money, as well as time, when shopping for birthdays.

Never leave birthday gift shopping until the last minute. If you are in a rush, you will buy the first suitable gift that you see and that will often be the most expensive. You may also end up buying an individual card, gift tag and a single sheet of wrapping paper, all of which add up to a high cost.

Invest in a birthday organizer so that you will always be prepared in advance for birthdays. Look out for a special birthday organizer that has daily spaces for recording birthdays, and 12 monthly pockets for storing cards and gift tags.

If you don’t want to buy a birthday organizer, you can make your own by labeling the months of the year on a 12-pocket concertina file. Write 12 monthly lists, in date order, of people’s names and birthdays. Put each list into the relevant pocket, so that you can collect birthday cards and related items in the same pocket.

Organize your birthday shopping effectively by taking out your birthday organizer at the beginning of each month and looking at the next month to see how much more you need to organize for the birthdays that month. For example, at the beginning of January, look at the February birthdays and make a list of all outstanding items. That will give you enough time to shop around for the best deals on birthday gifts and related items.

Regularly watch for cost-effective gift items throughout the year.  For example, Adorable Gift Baskets offers free ground shipping on a large selection of unique birthday gifts and birthday gifts baskets that are just perfect for birthdays.   Adorable Gift Baskets also offers money-saving discount coupons throughout the year.  Discount coupons coupled with the free ground shipping adds up to be a tremendous savings. You will find gift baskets for women filled with luxurious bath and body products, candles, books and more. A huge selection of unique gift baskets for men means that you will can find birthday gifts for dad, son, father, boss and every special man on your gift list. And, of course, those adorable gift baskets andgifts for children will win the hearts of all the little ones on your gift list.Gift baskets arrive beautifully wrapped and ready for gift giving. If you keep your eyes open and regularly visit Adorable Gift Baskets you are sure find great bargains and you will be surprised at just how many suitable birthday, and all occasion, gifts you will amass at a very low cost.

Shop in the January and Summer sales for gifts, cards, wrapping paper, ribbon, tags and any other items that you will need for birthday gifts during the rest of the year. Once you have brought your items home, file the cards and tags in your birthday organizer and store all of the gifts, wrapping paper and other items together in one place, so that you will always be able to find them quickly and easily when the next birthday comes around. If you wish, you can wrap and tag the birthday presents and write the cards in advance, so that when a birthday comes around, all you need to do is take out the relevant gift and card.

Buy in bulk if possible – Rolls of wrapping paper are much less expensive than single sheets. Buy several rolls of wrapping paper to suit each type of person for whom you buy birthday presents. For example, you could select one roll that would appeal to women, another for men, a third for small children and a fourth for older children. That way, you will always have an available supply of wrapping paper to suit each present that you give.

Try to buy birthday cards and gift tags in packs of ten or more. Not only will you pay a lot less than if you bought each one individually, but you will save time, as you will always have a birthday card or gift tag to hand.

If you follow these tips, then, not only will you never dash around in a mad panic looking for birthday gifts at the last minute, but you will save time and money and feel much calmer.  Search for the  unique gift basket gifts  now.
