    Why do "we" put so much value when buying gifts?

    "Presents don't really mean much to me. I don't want to sound mawkish, but - it was the realization that I have a great many people in my life who really love me, and who I really love."
    ~Gabriel Byrne

    Gifts are an example of what we think of the person we give them to. We try to match the gift to the person as best we can to show how much we value our friends and family. It is from the heart and provides meaning to the giver and receiver.

      Thanks for responding. Gifts do show that you are thinking of the person and your appreciation for having that person be apart of your life. As long as you don't put yourself in a financial bind trying to prove your love.

    Unfortunately many people also try to buy the most expensive gifts, just to show their financial power...

      Thanks for responding, I do agree, people buy the most expensive gifts just to show off. They know they can't afford the gift but buy it anyway, this does not show more love and sometimes it may even annoy the person getting the gift.
