The almost perfect gift

I love the winter: Christmas fairs, gingerbread, hot wine… Gifts… about that last part, I am not that excited. I admit every time I have difficulties picking up the right present… it has to be meaningful, useful, in an affordable financial spectrum. However, I want to point out that in our rush to find the perfect gift we forget that, in fact, its main role is to help us express our love

The thing with the gifts is that they only reflect a single love language out of 5: statements, time spent together, gifts, services, and physical contact. The love language determines the way we offer and desire to receive affection. The Christmas gift for someone should be made according to his language, not our preference. For example: let’s say that you have as a primary language offering gifts, but for the other may be: quality time. It is possible that the other one appreciates more the fact that you spend an afternoon decorating the Christmas tree rather than wearing that expensive wristwatch you brought.

For me, the main languages ​​are services and physical contact. The ideal gift on the Christmas morning would be you outside, in the cold, walking the dog at 6 in the morning and maybe when you come back to give me a warm hug

Let’s briefly explore each language:

1. Declarations

2. The time spent together

3. Services

4. Physical contact

5. Gifts

Christmas is an ideal time to explore these languages ​​and this knowledge, used daily will help us create more harmonious and deeper relationships with others and ourselves

With love,

Alexandra
