There are countless reasons to feel static about the Christmas season approaching. Singing along to Christmas music, being able to rest from school for two weeks, setting all sorts of decorations, and binge-watching Christmas movies are all beyond exciting activities during this season. However, one of the most awaited factors of Christmas are, of course, the gifts. Whether one enjoys receiving or giving, gifts play a rather crucial role during the holidays. At times, the value of a gift varies depending on the person. For instance, some people would much rather receive a smaller gift from a loved one because it holds more sentimental value than a ridiculously expensive one. For the other half, they believe that the more expensive a gift is, the better.

A gift does not always have to be something you spend money on. At times, a gift can come in many ways as long as it comes from the heart. Senior Axell Romero is one of the many people that believe a gift can be appreciated even if it’s not worth tons of money. He explains, “A gift should not be about the gift itself, but the people you receive them from. A gift that comes from the heart can hold eternal value since it makes you realize that they thought about you and wanted to make you happy, even if it’s a small gesture.” However, Axell recognizes that at times it is nice to make those around you happy with high-end gifts. He adds, “I understand that people might prefer to spoil their loved ones with expensive gifts every once in a while, and that’s okay.”

Although there are many people that appreciate the expensiveness of a gift rather than the person who give it to them, one should not forget that there are people who deeply care about them. No matter how expensive a gift is, their first priority is to make their loved ones feel cared for. The holidays bring friends and family together, so, make sure to remind your loved ones how much you value and appreciate them!
