Talks With Theresa Marie: Gift Giving

Gift giving is a universal act, especially done around the holiday season. It is also done on birthdays and special occasions as well. Gift giving is a sign of kindness, love, friendship, respect, etc. The biggest thing gift giving comes from in my family is Christmas. Although, Christmas is not about all the presents, presents are involved with this holiday.

Gift giving doesn’t always mean receiving. In today’s culture, I think some expect to receive a gift back, but that isn’t always how it works. On your birthday, you don’t give a gift to the person that gave you the birthday gift do you? You accept the gift given to you and thank that person. Gift giving is a beautiful thing. To be able to give someone a gift is a beautiful action. Gift giving also doesn’t need to involve a physically thing/present, it could be a simple “I’m taking you out to dinner.” That is still a gift in my books, especially if you’re not allowed to pay for it.

The best kind of gift giving is giving to those less fortunate than you. This can be done in so many ways. Donate toys to Toys for Tots, donate food to your local food pantry, serve food at that local food pantry, give a random gift to a homeless man/woman you see, especially if it’s a blanket or better yet, check them into a hotel for the night so they have someplace warm to stay. Gift giving is more about showing you care for someone, then receiving a brand new luxury car for instance.

With the spirit of the holidays coming to a close soon, just remember to always give and don’t look for that receive every time. Instead, look for the receivable feeling you will get once you give. Don’t end the gift giving season after the holidays, try to give throughout the year as much as possible. I hope you all enjoyed this post. Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays!


Hello loves! My name is Theresa Marie. I am a 21 year old college student, living in NY. I love iced lattes, animals, the fall and winter seasons, fashion, beauty, diys and food!
I started this blog in January of 2017 so that I can share the things I love and have a place for my passion of writing. Theresa Marie Daily (TMD), is a place of comfort, where you can come for recipes, beauty tips/favorites, see my personal style, fashion tips, lifestyle tips/tricks, diys, and other miscellaneous posts. I have a category called “Talks With Theresa Marie” (TWTM), where each month, I post about an occurring issue, or something random that I just feel like talking about, and I give my opinion/view on it. TWTM, gives you a personal insight on who I am and my beliefs/opinions on certain things. I hope to inspire each and every one of you to go outside the box with your food, lifestyle and personal style, and just enjoy life. Thank you so much for following along and reading!
