The Origins and History of Gift Giving
Gift giving has been a long tradition that dates back thousands of years . As human beings, we are social creatures who enjoy each other’s company and express our feelings through the giving of gifts. Whether it is an expression of true love, appreciation of a job well done or just to show our gratitude for having someone as a friend, the giving of gifts is engrained into our DNA. It allows people to connect and gives us a sense of purpose and feeling of satisfaction. This feeling is one that enlightens the soul and brings out the best in us. The old saying “it is better to give than receive” is so true.
The Irish consider it polite to refuse a gift a few times before accepting. This stems from the days of the potato famine, when recipients wanted to make sure the giver could afford the gift they were offering, without asking them outright and causing embarrassment. If you offer your Irish hosts a gift, don’t be surprised if they tell you that you shouldn’t have gone to all that trouble. Similarly, if they give you a gift, it shows humility if you refuse it once or twice.
