I really do feel that giving is better then recieving. And I think that a gift from the heart is better then a expensive one. I love getting home made gifts from my kids. Those are better then anything that can ever be found and bought at a store.

i always feel good when receiving something from people. and i don't care about the price. i am happy that somehow they thought of me and i am okey with that. but i am more of a giver. i love shopping for gifts to people even if there are no occasions at all. i love to shop for simple small stuffs to send to my boyfriend to lighten up his day. i love giving small gifts to my friends and family since i know it will put a smile on their faces.

It might depend on the gift. I think it is good to give. In many ways, by giving, you can then receive. Price might matter because you can buy something of higher quality if you can pay for it. Or, you might want to give something to someone and pay more to show your appreciation and love. As in a diamond ring.

I think that it is good to receive, but it is much better to give, not only material things, but affection and altruism, to me makes happy, satisfied and hear profit, but above all take part in the life. Giving is as when a mother he gives a life. Bye

what is better Apple or orange this this will be according to each person choice and both are right but to me i prefer the relation is to give and take never only take take or give give... don't be too proud to accept whats given and too greedy to give out what you must do.

It makes not only the giver feel better but also the reciever. A gift from the heart is better to me than a gift that is costly. Something homemade, a wildflower, or a homemade card are some of the things that mean most to me.

give because you feel good about it and so does the person the gift is given to
