Love has always been the easiest emotion to feel and the hardest one to express. So many have wondered about what is the actual way to let someone know that you love them. Maybe that is the beauty of it, it makes you keep trying. The tradition of giving gifts just emphasizes this point, the point of trying to make your partner happy, trying to show that you care, trying to express your love.
Of course, love is too pure an emotion to ever need any kind of material things to validate its existence. But gifts are not just material things, they are a gesture to show that you really care about your lover and want to make them happy. You cannot buy happiness, true, but if something puts that charming smile on your lover’s face then you know it is completely worth it. The gifts may have a price tag attached to them but the thought of love and care behind them is priceless, the effort put into getting them for your lover is priceless, and the look of happiness on his or her face after receiving it from you is priceless. It is not as much about the gift as it is about the thought behind it.
When you are in a relationship, there are those special days which deserve being celebrated; anniversaries, birthdays, valentine days, festivals or just sometimes any random day. Random days are the best ones, when your lover is not really expecting anything and you surprise them, even if it is just a rose or a big chocolate bar and they ask, “what for?” and you say, “no reason, just wanted to see that big smile light up your face.”, they just fall all the more in love with you. When you look back, you will realize that it was these small moments of euphoria, of pure happiness that shaped your relationships. These are the moments you never forget and even after one whole lifetime has passed away, you still recall them and smile. These moments of surprises, of joy, of love, are the best gifts you give your partner.
Anniversaries, the one day that changed both your lives forever, the day your empty hands found another pair to hold on to, the day life gifted you with each other, a special gift is a must on this special day. Well, even if your partner forgets it, instead of being angry at them and spoiling this amazing day, remind them in a sweet way. People go through so much stress these days and some people are by nature forgetful, give them the gift of your understanding and celebrate your love with them in the best possible way. Same is the case with the other days, although birthdays deserve being remembered and so make it a point to never forget them and make an effort to get something great for your partner. You want to show them how much their existence means in your life, appreciate them for being there for you always, and celebrate the day they were born by showering happiness, love, and care on them.
Peeking into somebody’s wish list might be considered a breach of privacy but if your intentions are only to get your lover what he or she really wants then it is not an unforgivable crime after all. That is the whole point of giving gifts, you want to get them something they really want such that they would leap ten feet in the air with joy when you give it to them. Sometimes, you just do it to make them feel better and when they feel good, you automatically feel good yourself. That is what love is all about.
