Gift giving. Where it all started. Historical records indicate that gifts were first given out during the time of the Roman Empire. Gifts were given usually in the form of evergreen branches during the winter solace or the first of January. Evergreen branches turned into giving cakes, honeys and other sweet items. Much more popular to receive than a few pine needles.
The same is true today. Gifts of food in particular gourmet foods like those available at Bob’s Gift Baskets are a very popular gift to give or receive.
Today gift giving is a year round event with gifts being given every calender day of the year. Holidays are always a major event, but there are birthdays, sporting and other events, corporate or business gifts expressing a special thank you. Even welcome home or welcome to your new home gifts. We give get well gifts or sorry for your loss gifts. Graduation gifts or gifts to say your sorry to your spouse. Secretaries receive gifts from the boss and they in turn receive gifts from their employees.
