Of money and presents.

Money or Presents?

Money as a present? Or some other thing as a present?
Which would you choose?

In any other occasion, money seems more tempting to receive.
Compared to a normal present, you'll be able to buy the thing that you really want if you get some money.

However, in my opinion, I'd rather receive a present than money for my birthday.


It's because it lets me remember the one who gave me the gift more compared to them giving me money.

How is that so?

Well, figure me this.
When someone gives you money, it becomes YOUR MONEY.
And when you used that money to buy something, it becomes YOUR STUFF.

Still don't understand what I'm trying to convey?

Here, the process is something like this.

Someone gave you money  

Your money 

You bought something for yourself

Your stuff

Conclusion, you bought the thing on your own.
You may have used the money you received to buy the thing,
However, the money receiving part would never be THAT significant compared to the fact that you bought the stuff on your own.

You may love the thing that you bought using the money that you have received,
but you will never see "the thing you bought" as "the thing you receive".

Now, do you get the picture?

Yeah, money is important, but you can get it anywhere either by working for it or by receiving it;
Afterwards, you'll see the that money as YOUR MONEY.
You may be thinking of it as a gift at first,
but in the end, you'll still see it as your money to use as you wish.

However, when you receive some thing which is not money as a present,
the meaning to the thing that you receive will always be "the thing I received".
Hence, you'll appreciate it and the owner more. :)

At the same time, the person who receives the present should also appreciate what they get.
They should never be ungrateful of what they receive.
At the very least, someone is willing to give you something, right?
Appreciate the effort, no?

And a note for the ones who wants to choose a present to give,
It isn't about the price or the brand.
Even if it's cheap, if you can find something that is useful or within the receiver's range of interest,
Shouldn't that be enough?

unless the person you're giving a gift to is one hell of materialistic b!tch, then I can't help you on that problem.

Lastly, and if you really really can't think of anything to give,
Give them some good food,
That always works for me, at least. ;p

have a nice day. :)
