A gift is given with the intention of honoring people. It is given to people we are close to, our friends or our loved ones.
It is also considered as a token of appreciation for people who have supported, helped, been there for us.
It’s an ancient practice followed since time immemorial.
- According to the Bible,“ Just as you excel in everything, see that you also excel in the grace of giving” (Paul Corinthians)
- In Islam, People are encouraged to give and receive as that will increase love between one another (Prophet Muhammad).
- In Hinduism, “A gift that is given without any expectation of appreciation or reward is beneficial to both giver and recipient.” (Bhagavad Gita).
- Buddha describes one of the central practices of Buddhism as “Dana”- “giving”
The art of giving gifts is also embedded in all cultures during celebrations, festivals, and occasions.
In short, it is a brand ambassador of goodwill and goodness across time, religion, and cultures.
And what better can you gift someone than the gift of health? Given the way our sedentary lifestyle has been hurting our body, an ergonomic gift can be a push in the right direction.
