The true meaning of gift giving is dying out, I guess. The infusion of some beliefs gave rise to another meaning to the minds of some people about this very old practice of the people with sincere and honest heart.
To my understanding gift giving is an expression of happiness and/or welcoming in a polite and friendly way. I also believe that the practice of gift giving started back when "The Magi" visited Jesus Christ on the day of His birth bringing gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. Because of this bible story, I always keep in my heart the sincere and honest meaning of gift giving, but because of one incident a new meaning stir up my mind.
How would you feel in a situation;
1. If you are the giver, how would you like to be thought as his/her rival. To make this clear, what do you want to imply if you give a gift with a name, "Envy me"? ... Would it still give a friendly or sweet/romantic sense that it's the thought that counts?
2. If you are the receiver, could you somewhat feel the sincerity of the giver?
this is true and it really happened.
