Which is better during the holidays; to give or to receive?
Which gives you a better sense of satisfaction?
When I was young, it was definitely to receive. Now that I'm older I like to watch someone open the gift I gave them and see their joy. Especially my nieces and nephews, nothing better than that!
I prefer giving. I like using my creative talents to put together crafted gifts and use my talents to be creative about the wrapping, too! The look of joy on the gift receiver's face when receiving a well thought out gift is one of the moments I enjoy best.
I don't know....I love giving and seeing the looks on their face. But at the same time I love the anticipation of opening a gift. As far as satisfaction goes, giving is definitely better.
I love giving...seeing the expressions on someone's face when you pick the perfect gift for them is priceless!
I always enjoy giving more than receiving. I don't need anything . . . emphasis on "thing". I just want to be with the people I love, and make beautiful memories. I love to find out what someone needs, and then try and give them that.
'gotta' be giving. but i can't say i don't love the gifts that you can tell the person has put thought into. last year i recieved better gifts than i gave and felt a bit bad about it but was also very touched :-)
You know, I don't really "need" anything anymore. A few things would be nice, but it's much more important for me to be around family, enjoy the decorations, etc.
I love giving a gift to someone that I know will love it. It's a great feeling.
Agree that as I get older I much prefer giving. As a kid I always looked forward to getting presents and didn't appreciate the true meaning of giving.
