If you were walking down the street and a random person came up to you and asked “What is a gift?” what would you say? I guarantee nine times out of ten people will explain a present — a tangible thing that is given to a friend, family member or associate for a particular occasion. But, the reality is that this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Giving a gift could mean a million things and everyone needs to change their thoughts on what exactly a gift is. A gift can be: The gift of education, the gift of parents adopting a child into a happy home, the gift of a safe haven for an abused animal, the gift of friendship and the gift of life. These are all things we need to realize as they are, when it all comes down to it, the gifts that really matter.
For example, the Founder of MemorableGifts.com — Raffi Dermenjian — recently had a baby boy with his wife Ani Dermenjian, and they were gifted with a present of life; a baby boy named Christopher. What could be a better gift?
In conclusion, the purpose of this post is to highlight the stereotype behind gifts and how it should be changed.
