The Tradition Of Gifting

Tradition Of GiftingThe Tradition Of Gifting is the best way to celebrate the festive season that make every moment memorable. The day of Christmas comes with the message of peace for the home, the nation and the world as Jesus Christ taught the humanity about giving peace and happiness to others. The effervescent mood of Christmas gets an added zest with the exchange of gifts, how so ever small or simple it may be.

The Origin Of Gift Giving

The tradition of giving gifts in this season owes its origin to the Magi who came from the east of Jerusalem to greet the Jesus in the manger with gifts of gold, incense and myrrh. The Magi were wise men and their gifts were emblematic of tribute, worship and death of Christ. Though Magi are associated more with the Feast of Epiphany on January 6, they can be regarded as the pioneer in gift-giving tradition following the birth of Jesus.

The Essence Of Gifting

The gifts manufactured specially for the Christmas day are presented in a range of dazzling creations with timeless beauty. From stars to bells to ice cream cones to a snowman, all gifts are inspired by Christmas motifs that infuse joy and happiness. The gift of Christmas also symbolizes purity and simplicity. The elegance of Christmas gifts appeals to all taste that bring a glow to the festival.

The Gifts

Selecting a present and exchanging it with a special person can be a most delightful aspect of the Christmas season. As simple as a bunch of nice flowers, or a basket of season's fruits; a box of candy or a pack of chocolates; a piece of toy or a rare species of sprouting plant; an item of trivia or an object d'art; sheer utilities like a set of cutlery or something that pampers luxury like a box of jewelry ...the list is endless. However, it ultimately rests on the tastes of both the gift-giver and the recipient's, the background of their relationship, along with their age and the social background.
