A true gift can only come from the heart

Giving presents is something you have to learn. But how do you make it work for both parties? 
Other cultures also have «gift-giving» occasions
Many people like to give gifts because they want to please the other person. Affection, love, friendship and empathy are at the center of this, in other words, it is a «matter of the heart».  We are not the only ones who feel this way. And because this is obviously important, there are many celebrations where people give each other gifts.

This is not only the case on occasions such as Christmas, but also on the Indian festival of lights Diwali as well as the Islamic festival of sacrifice Eid Al-Adha, to name just two examples.
Giving and taking - both are important
The New Year's Day celebration of the Sinhalese and Tamils in Sri Lanka also has a profound meaning. There, it is customary to exchange gifts with the words «gana-denu» (give and take). This formula is based on a great experience of life. After all, we are all altruistic here and there, but sometimes we also expect something in return. The gift in return does not necessarily have to be of a material nature. After all, an unexpected gesture that comes from the heart is usually enough.

In other words, think about what you could do to touch the heart of your loved one on Valentine's Day.
