Choosing/ Giving a gift needn't be a chore, It can be fun - when you know the real ways to say YOU CARE. The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than its value. Giving gifts can be fun for bothe receiver and the giver. 5 ways to put the joy back into this fine old tradition. 1) Make sure the gift has meaning for the recipient, Acknowledging and accepting what another person values can be a gift in itself. 2) Be alert for a gift that the recipient may want realizing it. 3) Offer ur time or talent. A gift that shines with ur individual effort and enterprise will be appreciated in a way the most expensive jewel can never match. 4) Be on time. 5) Don't wait for a special occassion. Whenever we give a gift for no special occassion, we're telling the recipient, more clearly than words ever could, "you matter to me". A spontaneous gift acknowledges and encourages a new stage in someone's life can be very reassuring. Give gifts for no special occasion - do just out of love. Sometimes a gift can be that simple and that profound. THE IMPORTANT THING IS TO SHOW YOU CARE A LOT FOR THEM. love aarthi source: frm RD.
