Celebrating Life through the Love Language of Giving Gifts

The last 2 weeks we have shared how we celebrate life through 2 of the 5 love languages: words of affirmation and quality time. This week we will discuss the next language, receiving gifts. When one thinks of receiving gifts, gold digger or
 a kept man comes to mind. However, this is not necessarily the case. A person whose love language is receiving gifts appreciates the thought behind the gift more than the gift itself. Small and inexpensive gifts are just as meaningful as expensive gifts.

Here are some ideas to celebrate love through gifts:
• Send a card
• Make something
• Give them something they have mentioned in passing (a book, DVD, article of clothing, etc
• Give them something that reminded you of them.
• Bring home flowers or even a single rose
• Pick up dinner

If you are up to the challenge, give your love one a gift day or even week. For a day, give them something in the morning, afternoon, and evening. For example, leave a treat in the car seat in the morning, have lunch, flowers, or edible arrangements delivered to the workplace, and another thoughtful gift when he or she gets home. Use your imagination and have fun with it!
