When you can’t put it in words, put a gift in a wrapping.

It is so difficult to express what you want to say through words at times. Mostly, we resort to letters or cards in such situations. What helps the most during such times is gifting something to express your sentiments. Though people deny extravagant gifts in weddings, gifting always works its wonders to nourish a relationship.

Gifts are the best way to express your feelings.  Gifts tend to make you happy even if you are the one who is gifting it to somebody rather than receiving it. The smile that you see on the receivers face is the best ‘return gift’ that you could possibly have. Similarly, when you gift something that the receiver doesn’t really like, you feel quite bad, right?
Let me be your Secret Santa!
‘Open with smile’; you will find this written on envelopes containing letters mostly. When you know that you are getting a letter from a loved one, asking you to smile as you open it, you are surely going to love it and as a result, it will indeed, make you smile. However, if you get a gift on a birthday or on some special occasion, mostly you tend to be apprehensive as you open it. Let’s be honest, we all have experienced that time when we opened the gift with a smile but weren’t so happy later on as the gift isn’t something of our choice. Many a times some clothes which we get as gifts don’t fit us well.

We can’t make use of the gift neither can we return it as it is difficult to return without bills. Asking the person who gifted you for the bill is also as indecorous. So what to do?

  5. Hello Tvara, I don't know about this but this story what I'm going to sharing with you right now.

    About 2 years ago my friend's big brother blessed with baby boy and they are belongs to middle class family and they don't have vehicle. that time I'm with my friend at hospital and after few days they discharge from hospital and as you know that I have car so I have taken him and his family members with me in my car and the baby boy have doesn't have sense where he is but after that whenever I go to my friends place and that time he smile like he knows me very well. After few times I visit frequently his place and he told his father to he wants to ride with me in my car. I can't express the feelings of his cute boy when he ride with me in my car and he even forgot everything after seating in my car. His father told me that "TU AAVE TOH TAARI CAR JOYI NE J AMNE BADHA NE BHULI JAAYE" and he literally forgot everything. Now he is more than 2 years and he can speak. So whenever I go to meet my friend and he just come to me in my car and says I will also buy 2-3 big cars one day and I can see that smile and charm on his face whenever he is in my car. And I like to give him smile. Because wo kehte hai na k DUSRO KI KHUSHI MEIN HI APNI KHUSHI HOTI HAI. So I gift smile on his face every time I visit my friends place.

  6. Hi Tvara..

    Nice blog..
    On my brother's 19th birthday I gifted him a DSLR with my own savings and though it shook my budget for the next 3 -4 months but that is just worth it .He never demanded one , but I have seen him struggling hard to click pictures through his phone and upload on social platforms where he can reach millions of other photographers who appreciate others work as well. He might be still a kid in my parent's eye who is not aware of what world is outside but he is clear about his passion and his desires and that is what matters in the end. And so dis is what I gifted him.. his passion..!!!
