The Art of Gift Giving
"The manner of giving is worth more than the gift"
- Pierre Corneille
Have you ever been over the moon after receiving a gift? It could have been a simple gift, an extravagant one, or it could have simply been unexpected. The truth is, our hearts warm up so much when we are gifted thoughtful items from our loved ones—and it's not about the actual gift, rather it is because of the thoughtfulness behind it, the act of giving it, or out of sheer surprise. That is the magic behind gifting.
I read a book called Giftology and in it, the author said to stop gifting only on ABC's: Anniversaries, Birthdays, and Christmas (or holidays, and in our case: Eid) because gifts are expected during those times. When you change the purpose of a gift from obligation to thoughtfulness, the methodology of gift giving shifts. It’s not connected to a time, doesn’t need a reason and most probably becomes more personalized and thoughtful.
This may sound biased, but we create most of our Lamona Textiles products in terms of gifts. We purposefully designed wholesome kits and complementary add-ons that appeals to kids, newbie hobbyists and hardcore crafters alike.
We love that the receiver of our products can enjoy their tangibility by feeling different textures throughout their work on projects. They can also spend time drifting away in their thoughts as they are immersed while creating, and then finally complete a special product of their own with a story behind it.
Whether you are looking for a gift because it is gifting season or because you want to just let someone know that you care, we are positive that you will find what you are looking for on our site. If you need some guidance making your pick, simply let us know. We'd love to help.
