It’s never the gift alone but the thought that goes behind it, and the love that goes with it which make it special for the receiver.
That’s why I write long birthday posts for my close friends and relatives.
Because that’s the best I could gift them: my time, my words and our memories.
So, the next time you are gifting someone –
1. Take time to think what would they love the most to have or need at this point.
2. Surprise them if you could.
3. Tell them that the gift is just a way to showcase what they mean to you.
The gift alone won’t make them feel special. Your love behind it would.
