Halloween has passed, meaning everyone’s minds have switched off Spooky Stories and are looking ahead to the holiday season. But as December draws closer, it is often that the real magic and psychology of gift giving becomes forgotten.
Giving a gift is a universal way to show interest, appreciation, and gratitude, as well as strengthen bonds with others, as mentioned by South University in their article “The Psychology of Gift Giving, There is an emotional lift when searching for the gift.”
Trust us boys and girls, by making the perfect delivery, you’ll turn that moment into an experience they will tell their friends forever. Putting that extra thought into the delivery and the card shows them that you truly care. Best part, it’s free!
PRACTICING THE ART OF GIVING
There’s a reason they call it “The Art of Giving”, it takes time and thought, but doesn’t have to be extravagant. If the gift is a surprise then you’ve already got the upper hand. But what about some of those upcoming moments when they’re already expecting a gift? Such as birthdays or Push Presents for new moms?
You’ve already spent all that time getting the perfect ring to go with her favourite necklace. Don’t just follow the usual protocol and wait until everyone’s sang “Happy Birthday” or give it to her first thing in the morning over breakfast. Be creative! Here is what we suggest – Control the 5 senses!
CLOSE THEIR EYES AND TAKE THESE 5 EASY STEPS:
Hear Set the tone of the mood by playing some music. Doesn’t have to be romance, just something you know they’ll love.
Smell Remember, scent can trigger memories, draw people in and help set the mood. It is also one of the keys to attraction. So light some candles and incense or wear that special cologne or perfume they love. It doesn’t take much.
Taste Give them something sweet. Chocolate, birthday cake, even strawberries.
Touch Hand them the box, let them feel it, even try to guess what it is.
Sight And then open their eyes
