6 Tips in Giving Gifts

Gift-giving has become a part of human interaction. It’s a way of bonding with your loved ones, and it helps strengthen each other’s relationships. It is an excellent way of showing someone that you appreciate them. Sometimes, we tend to cut down on spending and decide to opt-out of gift-giving. Although this may be practical, it isn’t the best solution if what we want is to strengthen our relationships with family and friends.

Giving a gift means taking a portion of your time to think about something you can give to a loved one or any person. But in this fast-paced life, we tend to do last minute gift shopping and grab the first thing that we see. Yes, it’s that thought that counts but it won’t hurt to take time to think about what that person really wants. It can’t be avoided that there awkward moments, especially when you receive a gift and have nothing to give in return.

Should a gift be of the same value? When we receive expensive gifts, we somehow feel that we are obliged to give a gift of equal value. But remember, spending an excessive amount for gifts may give the receiver an uncomfortable vibe. It is of a really the thought that comes with the gift is meaningful. Honestly, if you have spent some time thinking of a gift, the price tag won’t matter.

 

Exchanging gifts

This is common, especially during the holidays, but it is not always mandatory. The true essence of giving gifts is not expecting something in return. However, if you choose always to return the favor, keep in hand an assorted ready-to-give gift. Perfect examples could be bath gels, ornaments, or chocolates.

Gifts in groups

Another dilemma we face is when we give a gift to a person in a group, should you consider giving gifts to others in the group as well? Generally, you only give gifts to those you are inclined to. In order to do this, you should give it privately to the person than in public.

Appreciate always

When receiving gifts, even if you don’t have something in return, show your appreciation by smiling and saying thank you. If you receive in other ways like via mail, call the sender to thank him or her.

Be straightforward

Although it’s good that you have gifts for everyone, it’s not always bad to admit if you’re unable to buy gifts for them. Be straightforward and acknowledge that you are cost-cutting or you just simply don’t have time to buy gifts for everyone. You can also give them simple gifts and just explain that you can’t buy extravagant gifts for now. It could also lessen the burden on the side of the receiver because of the expectations set by gift-giving holidays.

 

Prepare a token for the host

If you have been invited to someone’s home, always consider giving a token to the host to show some appreciation. This little gesture could strengthen bonds between you and the host.

Remember to stay true to yourself in gift-giving. You can only give what you can. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to impress other people with your gifts. After all, it’s the thought that counts!

Why you should watch TV with your kids

Television has become the standard entertainment for all homes in the entire world. This is why as kids we watched more TV. However, not everyone has to say good things about the television, and in some cases, it has been linked to several cases of children misbehaving and getting deteriorating results in school. It is a common occurrence for kids to perform poorly at school once they get access to a TV, mostly because they will spend most of their time watching rather than concentrating on school work.

Another common outcry is that kids try and copy what they see on TV, which is mostly inappropriate behaviors and praise for violence and strong language. The thing is that most of the blame is to be placed on parents, as it is their duty to ensure that they take their time to guide their kids and from time to time, watch with them to make sure that they understand what is going on. In this article, we will look at some few reasons as to why parents should watch TV with their kids.

Why you should watch TV with your kids

Give clear explanations

Kids learn through observation, and it becomes dangerous when they observe something that they do not understand. Take, for example, if a kid sees actors kiss on television, in most cases, they will try and do that to their friends, not knowing what it all means or why people do that. But if you watch TV with them, then you can get an excellent opportunity to explain to them what is going on. This will help them understand the movies and even learn a thing or two. It will also create a good environment where your kids learn to talk to you about anything.

Monitor what they watch

The best way to bring up your kids is to make sure that they watch what is appropriate for their age. By law, all show producers are supposed to rate their material to make sure that only people of appropriate age, that can understand the content are allowed to watch. This way, you can allow your kids to be kids, and grow up gradually under your guidance.
