It's time to give presents!
More like Present$ with a dollar sign, am I right?
There's this corporate greed push to buy the latest and greatest every holiday season. This one, despite the fact that it's the apocalypse, no different.
It's believed that that the value of your gift is directly proportional to the price tag on it.
But I'm here to tell you folks, that's all bullshit.
Truth is, most of these big expensive gifts are gonna wind up on the side of the curb by the trash sooner or later.
The gifts we keep usually have some sort of...sentimental value behind them.
It takes a lot of time, a lot of work ...to earn enough money to buy an expensive gift.
And unless that person receiving it is highly materialistic, the price won't even matter much to them. It's how much it effects them emotionally that matters.
See, when you give a gift, you want to focus on achieving that emotional bond. You want to create rapport.
You can be a cheap bastard and barely spend any money. That doesn't matter.
What matters is how well you manage to build rapport with the other person when giving a gift. You want to say "I really thought of you." over "I really spent a lot on you."
As with all things lazy, when it comes to gift giving, you want to minimize effort and maximize results.
Give the cheap little gifts that actually MEAN something over the big elaborate ones that will be thrown out a few week from now.
