We give gifts to others to recognize our love for them and a wish to give them something nice. Sometimes we give gifts of ourselves to show them we love them beyond measure and wish to give them everything.
In 2009, I recorded this story by O. Henry of a couple of young people who gave away the things they held most dear to make the person they loved feel special.
This Christmas, I wish for you all the gifts you desire and the chance to give of yourself.
