Gifts are usually given to show regard or affection
A gift is a gift or an object given to a person without expecting anything in return or compensation. However, an object given as a gift is not necessarily a gift, even if that object already belongs to the one to whom it’s given. Generally, gift-giving may involve some expectation of compensation, but this depends on the relationship between the giver and the recipient. This may also be done to show appreciation for services rendered or for different events achieved.
In the English language, the act of giving a gift also has an ending, which is called the gifting. The endings used in gift-giving vary depending on the gender of the one being given (masculine, feminine, and masculine), the language used (polite, formal, and rude), the occasion (for example, on Valentine’s Day), the person whom the gift is given to (master, slave, husband, wife, daughter, friend, colleague), and the amount of money. Another factor that may influence the choice of ending is the way the gift is given – whether by opening the gift, carrying it away, hiding it, or throwing it away. The gifting verbs are the ones that typically take the place of the nouns in sentences with the ending -ing. Gift-giving can also involve an indirect expression, such as to treasure or to covet.
Gift-giving is the oldest form of social bonding in human societies
Examples of gift giving in the English language include “gift” (maid), “gift” (toy), “gift” (trophy), “gift” (bundle), “gift” (give), “give” (present), “give” (presentation), “give” (resent), “give” (something), and “gift” (something undeserved). Not all gift-giving verbs are related to the action of giving, as in “gift” and “give” for example. In the modern age, however, gift giving has become integrated into our language, making it a very regular part of many social functions. It is seen as a kind of interpersonal etiquette, especially when the giver and receiver of a gift are friends.
Saint Nicholas is a holy figure in the Christian traditions of most countries. According to legend, he dispenses gifts to children under the tree on Christmas night in exchange for their good wishes. He is said to have come to earth not to seek possessions, but to distribute gifts to His faithful servants. This tradition is connected with another legend about Saint Nicholas. According to this story, after feeding a dragon with a feast, he washed his hands so that no evil thing could ever enter into them, and then sat down on the tree to eat his gift, which was fruits.
God commands us to give to those whom we cannot see
Giving something, however unattainable, to someone is also a gesture of friendship to that person. This idea is at the heart of the tradition of giving gifts. Whether it is flowers or candies, expensive gourmet food or useful tools, you can never go wrong if you send a gift to your family members, colleagues, or even to people whom you do not have a relationship with.
The practice of gift-giving dates back to biblical times when God commands us to give to those whom we cannot see. In the age-old traditions, food or drink was given to the servant while his master slept, but in the New Testament, the Bible forbids this practice. The New Testament passage reads: “God does not give the devil a place to dwell” (2 Tim. 2:22). Although there may be some opposition to the idea of gift-givers getting an undeserving recipient a gift, it seems that God doesn’t mind gift-giving in any case.
