So, What is a True Gift? The girls always seem to get most of the gifts. Well, at least the smaller nicer looking ones. The guys tend toward big boys toys which admittedly seem to end up costing a lot more.
Having said that, its the desire of a good bloke to make his girl happy and there is no better way of doing this than with a small gift.
It doesn’t have to be expensive, but it must meet certain criteria in order not only to be appreciated but to fulfill an important aspect of gift giving, and that is MOTIVE. Gifts for Her (or Him) – Defined and Refined.
Girls do appreciate the item itself but it must be said in most cases that girls, along with all of us for that matter, like to feel that the giver is making the sacrifice out of a good feeling of the heart, not just out of obligation or to curry certain favors or benefits to oneself.
The best gifts are the unselfish type. These are the gifts that last for a very long time and make for the happiest relationships.
