Giving a Gift

It's the social convention that we give gifts on birthdays and various special occasions.  But how much nicer is it to unexpectedly receive a gift from someone purely because they wanted to give you something?

And how nice is it to be the one who gives?

I decided to get a mug made for my boyfriend, adored with various actresses he drools over.  It doesn't sound like much but I put in several hours working on Photoshop to create the picture and then spent time hunting down some ribbon in just the right colour to go with it.

There was no 'reason' as such for me to make him a gift other than I wanted to do something nice for him.  He was a little perplexed at being given a gift so unexpectedly (it's no where near his birthday) but he loves it!  And I felt really good about having done it.

People quite often decide to treat themselves to make them feel good.  Perhaps next time you think that to yourself, consider treating someone else and see just how good it feels - you make two people happy instead of one. :)
