Receiving gifts warms my heart

They make a person feel special and seen. It tells us that these people truly care for us and that we can trust them.

Getting gifts is a way to show friends and family love during a specific time of the year.

Ah, Christmas. It’s my favorite time of the year, especially since Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love giving and receiving gifts, but I prefer receiving them more.

When I receive a gift, it makes me feel happy. It also shows me that I am loved and known. My heart feels warm every time I receive something. 

It makes me feel even better when they get me something I’ve been wanting for a long time or if they just know what I want without even asking me.

You don’t understand how much I appreciate it when someone gives me something.

When a person gives me a gift, I can see how happy they are while giving me the gift. Seeing someone get happy just because they’re giving me a gift makes me even happier.

Their gifts will be something I will cherish for a long time, even if it’s the tiniest thing or a gift card. 

I cherish these gifts because I obviously mean something to this person. I enjoy getting these surprises from my friends and family.

There’s this certain thrill you feel when you get a gift. The best way I can explain it is how when a little kid is given their favorite candy or food.  

Many people probably don’t know this, but it makes a person feel special and seen. It tells us that these people truly care for us and that we can trust them.
