We spend so much time searching for a perfect gift for our significant other, that we often forget something.
We forget that it is not so much about the gift itself as it is about all the feelings that we wrap inside the gift.
All the love that we feel for him or her, the joy, the passion, the tenderness, the bliss, the happiness, the excitement, genuine appreciation, enchantment, and devotion.
The true gift is hidden in the feelings that stay with you and you partner long after the act of giving.
Five unique & unusual gifts for your partner
- Give the gift of you (full of joy and aliveness)
Give to Yourself First and make yourself happy. That’s the place from where you start to thinking about the gift that you.And from that place of happiness share yourself with your partner.
- Share from the Heart
Only when you give from your heart, you could give love to your gift. Only when you open your heart, you could also receive the joy of giving. And only then you could be open to receive back the joy that your gift brought to your partner. Without you receiving your partner excitement and happiness of receiving, your partner could not fully enjoy your gift.
- Give Presents of Presence
Offering someone your time and undivided attention can be a truly thoughtful gift and also deepen your connection. Material items often break or become outdated, but the memories of receiving undivided attention, being noticed without the distraction of electronic devices or other people calling on the phone or sitting with your beloved without constantly being distracted by others around you, that is a memory that can last a lifetime.
- Giving the gift of acceptance. Being accepted for who you are from somebody who is close to you is something precious. It happens rarely in our world. We are constantly bombarded with the thoughts from our mind, from the past,
from surrounding. Can you imagine sitting with someone, who is holding your hands, looking into your eyes and seeing the beauty inside you? Who doesn’t want you to be different, who has no desire to change you, who wouldn’t change a thing about you even if you give him magic wand which you do that?
I know that our mind is a marvelous tool, who could not keep us out of opinion, desires for things about our loved ones to be different, all the wants and needs.
But when you just once in a lifetime experience receiving that kind of gift for a 30 second from someone, you will know how much that is worth.
Could you give your partner that unique gift? For you, it will take a minute, but the memory will stay probably forever with you and with him or her.
- give happy memory jar
- wrap your gift with love and tenderness not just shiny wrapping
Even if you don’t believe than even object emit energy, think how you feel when your step into the room and your partner is angry. Even if he leave the room, the feeling of anger is still there. The room absorb emotions and energy of anger. The same is with the gift. If you are concerned about how he will receive your gift. If you question yourself, did I pick the right gift, what if
that will not make him happy? What if I made a mistake and should bring him something else?
All those thoughts get absorbed in your gift.
Instead of worrying how your gift will be received, imagine that you are wrapping the gift with warm feelings of love from your heart. Think about happy memories from the past in the process of choosing or wrapping the gift.
Gifts For The Man (or woman) Who Has Everything and Wants Nothing
I discovered that because my partner doesn’t like to receive gifts. And I came from a family where we all
enjoy giving, the Christmas without gifts was something that I could not imagine.
Until I meet him.
And start thinking how could I give without giving the gift wrapped in shiny paper under the Christmas tree.
These are a few of unique ways to give without making or buying the gift:
– gift of nurturing yourself
Give yourself enough time to nurture and keep yourself happy. Because if you feel spend and empty, you will have hard time staying present and will miss out on meaningful moments in your relationship. We often underestimate how much our happiness affect our partner.
– gift of happy memories from this year (turn the pictures of you two into PowerPoint slide-share or movie)
We usually sit down in front of the laptop, with a glass of wine and enjoy our happy memories together
– gift of heartfelt communication
Giving a feeling of love into the words that you speak to him. Noticing him not just the words that he speaks. Listen with your whole body, not just with your ears.
Notice how your body respond to his communication, notice when you body became tense or stiff and with that showing you that you have hard time accepting whatever he is trying to communicate
– gift of curiosity
At the end of the year, became curious, who he has become in this last year? What did you miss? How has he change?. Be curious, ask questions, listen, pay attention to what he is doing, how he feels.
– gift of being present with him
And many more.
I wish that all your gifts would be full of your love.
