Gifts occupy an important place in our social life. They build our relations with other people. We exchange gifts with other people on different festivals, events etc. Gifts speak our love for one other. There are gifts which are gifts which are given merely out of material considerations. A subordinate may give a gift to his officers in order win his favour. Gifts are given as a form of bribery. Such gifts are not liked by anybody in the society. Our religion attaches great importance to the exchange of gifts. But the gifts given as bribery do not increase love. They are the expression of our selfish nature. They are given to derive some material benefit. Real gifts are the expression of our inner goodness and sincerity.
The selection of gift is an art. Our gifts must represent two things. First, they must fulfill the needs of our friends and relatives. Second they must be creation of our selves. They must be the part of our own nature. Different creative gifts become a part of the memory of the person who receives.
Gifts are token of live, trust and good will. They play an important part in making us love one another. The given of a gifts bring to surface all good qualities which we posses. They make us humble and help us in shedding off our pride and vanity.
