Gifting as a Virtue
Gifting as a Virtue
A popular saying goes, “those who give more, receive more.” Gifting has existed since the biblical times, and has often been used as a way to seek peace and favor before persons in authority. During the days when kings ruled the earth, communities through their leaders paid customary visits to the palaces and sought favor through gifts. Gifting is, however, not a preserve of the ruler-subject realm. In fact, more consequential gifting occurs between people of a similar economic ability. Aside from the romance-dominated context of gifting, the virtue can also be used to appreciate people for great, patriotic or heroic deeds. For instance, in the traditional African culture, a great community warrior would be gifted a special spear or shield in recognition of their exploits. Therefore, gifting, in all its contexts, entails recognition of a person’s significance in the life of the giver.
Today, couples reward each other for loyalty and support through gifts. Similarly, friends might also reward each other as an appreciation of the person’s contribution to one’s success. One of the most unique and effective ways of gifting is by surprising a partner when they least expect it. Purchasing flowers is probably quite romantic, but flowers are highly perishable. Exit flowers, and enter The Top Rose Gift Voucher. In the variety of packages we offer, one includes the option of a gift voucher. A man, for instance, may purchase a gift voucher for his wife or girlfriend. The vouchers are valid for up to three months, giving the recipient enough convenience to run their errands if they cannot or do not want to utilize their gift immediately. The voucher allows a client to express appreciation to their loved ones in creative ways.
Gifting improves relationships. The role of a gift in relationships is perhaps best captured in Brigham Young, former Utah Governor’s iconic quote: “Love the giver more than the gift.” According to Young, a gift represents more than just the material object exchanging hands. It is more about the mutual feeling between the two persons. When one offers a gift, they receive much more value in the form of love and stronger bonds. Thus, an honest gift is one of the best things one can offer to appreciate the other person. This season, join the community of givers who receive happiness by just giving.
