At its core, gift giving is the practice of turning feelings like love, warmth, appreciation, and pride into physical keepsakes. It's one of the too few opportunities to convey to loved ones just how much we really love them.We all occasionally need the practical gifts that accompany birthdays, graduations, and other celebrations: fresh sheets, external batteries, and airline gift cards to get home for Thanksgiving this year. But, once the basics are covered, most of us really just want to relive (and prolong) our best memories, honor our closest relationships, and fill our lives and homes with mementos that encourage us to savor the meaningful connections we have with one another.
