Amanda's birthday came with the ultimate thoughtful gift last week, so we wanted to share how a small token can mean so much.

Sending a gift who does it mean most to?

This week a very thoughtful friend gifted Amanda with the most beautiful rose. It was personalised and even named "Duch of Wez". What a gift to receive! Check out Country Garden Roses here.

So maybe this is the time to visit Manns Cookies and send that unique and thoughtful gift to someone you've been thinking of?

So how do we feel when we receive a gift?

When a friend (in this example) gifts you a gift, it can evoke a range of emotions depending on the relationship. Here are some common feelings you might experience:

  1. Appreciation: Receiving a gift from a friend often generates a sense of appreciation. You may feel grateful that your friend took the time and effort to select a gift specifically for you, considering your tastes, interests, or needs.

  2. Surprise: If the gift is unexpected or comes as a surprise, you might feel pleasantly surprised. The element of surprise can add excitement and anticipation to the experience, making it even more special.

  3. Happiness and Joy: Opening a gift from a friend can bring feelings of happiness and joy. It's a positive experience to know that someone cares about you enough to give you a present, which can elevate your mood and create a sense of happiness.

  4. Validation and Affirmation: Receiving a gift can serve as validation or affirmation of your friendship. It can be a reminder that your friend values and appreciates your presence in their life, reinforcing the bond you share.

  5. Connection and Warmth: A gift from a friend can foster a sense of connection and warmth. It can strengthen the emotional bond between you and your friend, making you feel closer and more connected on a deeper level.

  6. Surprise and Delight: If the gift is particularly thoughtful or meaningful, it may evoke a sense of surprise and delight. This can be especially true if the gift aligns with your interests, passions, or desires, demonstrating that your friend truly knows and understands you.

  7. Gratitude and Reciprocity: Receiving a gift can also inspire feelings of gratitude and a desire for reciprocity. You may feel compelled to express your appreciation and reciprocate the gesture, either through a return gift or through acts of kindness and support.

It's the thought and sentiment behind the gift that often holds the most significance, and the act of gift-giving itself can strengthen the friendship and create lasting memories.
