Receiving Over Giving


Chloe Schosso

Giving gifts is one of the best parts of Christmas. But something even better than giving gifts is receiving gifts! What could be better than people giving you free stuff?

Christmas if the time of presents. Presents are a materialistic way of showing family and friends how much they are cared for. Even if it’s something as little as socks or candy canes, gifts are a way of making people feel appreciated. 

Receiving a gift provides people with a very good feeling and makes people feel special and loved.  It is a reminder that you are thought of and cared for.

There are many perks of giving people gifts such as showing love for those in your life. But there is no better feeling than waking up on Christmas day and seeing all of the presents you’ve received.

Even the smallest presents or acts of kindness can put a smile on someone’s face. It is even better to be on the receiving end of this act of kindness. 

Imagine you’re sitting around the Christmas tree with those around you and see a gift with your name on it. You fill with excitement and joy and you realize someone thought of you. You open the gift to find that it’s the very thing you’ve been hoping to receive. 

Receiving gifts can make you feel a new appreciation for whoever gave you the gift. It can be a way to see how much you mean to someone and see that they went out of their way to show you how much you mean to them. 

Gifts have no price tag. The most important thing about gifts is the thought that is put into it. Receiving gifts doesn’t have to be something big or expensive. It can be something small and inexpensive as long as it came from the heart.
