Giving or Receiving?

It's time for another NaBloPoMo blog prompt post about gifts.

Which to you enjoy more giving or receiving?

I love receiving presents.  Really I think anyone who says that they don’t is not being honest.  Okay, I know we’ve all had bad gift receiving experiences where you wonder if the person giving the gift might actually be trying to tell you how much they really don’t like you, but for the most part being on the receiving end of a gift is a pretty good thing.  It’s especially wonderful when you open the package and it is obvious that a lot of thought and care went into the choosing of the gift because what you find is something so perfectly you.

Which is why, though I love to be on the receiving end of a gift exchange, I enjoy giving presents far more than I do receiving.  Knowing what it is like to receive that perfectly chosen gift, creates within me a desire to bring that feeling to those I care about.  There is something wonderful about finding or making the perfect present for someone you love, and knowing that what you are giving them will bring a smile to their face.    Making someone else feel good, makes me feel good in whatever form that takes, a hug, an ear in a time of need or a thoughtfully chosen and given gift.
