Makes you live longer

If you are the kind of person that wants to live forever, then gifting is definitely a thing you should continue practising over and over again. It has been found that being generous to others has a direct impact on your lifespan. This is possible due to hormones like serotonin, dopamine, endorphins and oxytocin. The group of hormones is referred to as the “feel-good” hormones. They are the same hormones responsible for one’s good health.

So how does this relate to gifting? Well, gifting is regarded as an activity that triggers dopamine, just as eating chocolate or listening to music would. happy the hormones get triggered as a result of gifting. This in turn automatically lowers your stress levels, which means a good step towards healthy living. On that note, we say go on and place your next gift order, because it can keep the doctor away. Plus, you have options from flowering plants to personalised gifts.

But when your gifting is successful you get an automatic good mood boost from seeing the recipient happy.  Chances are that the outcome and the experience left you looking forward to gifting again and just feeling happy in general. Now you’ll look forward to the occasions when you get to warm the hearts of those you care about.

Improves and strengthens your relationships

A moment shared with loved ones is always very special. This is why most people look forward to celebrating a birthday or other occasions, like Christmas Day and Valentine’s Day. Hence, nothing strengthens relationships like making time and effort to let them know that you are always thinking about them. Gifting someone communicates your appreciation for them and how you want them to stay in your life. It communicates that you treasure the bond you have and want to make it stronger. In turn, the recipient feels valued and loved. They too will be motivated to reciprocate the appreciation and help nurture your relationship.
