Giving and receiving gifts are common human behaviors. People express love and gratitude by giving and receiving gifts. Given the universal nature of this custom, it is easy to understand why it has a rich cultural history. A gift conveys an emotion or idea to another person without having to verbally communicate it. It is a direct way of communicating with another person without having to directly message them.
Giving and receiving are natural and healthy human behaviors. People tend to give and receive gifts at holiday times- birthdays, graduations and other celebrations. Christmas is one of the biggest gift-giving holidays in the world. Receiving gifts is also common in informal situations such as birthday parties or family gatherings. In addition, most work cultures have gift guidelines for employees and bosses who are in a position to give bonuses, pay increases or other forms of mentorship.
