Gift Giving With Love: Alternative Gift Giving Tips

Many people underestimate the effect that gift giving with love can have on a relationship. A leading theory on romantic interaction considers there to be five distinct love languages, which differ between people. A love language applies in two ways. It is in the preference for the way that people give love, and in the way that people like to receive love. Not understanding the love language of your partner can cause difficulties in a relationship, as something that you consider to be very romantic, may not be so for them.

The act of gift giving is one of the romantic languages. For many people, receiving gifts from their loved one is a confirmation of the love that is shared. Many times, the emotion is not so much connected to the gift itself, but rather the thought and effort that has gone into it. For example, giving a man a bunch of roses or a woman a power tool is generally not an effective expression of love. 

One way of showing strong affection when gift giving is to look for something personalized. Consider shopping based on your loved ones personality. For example, for a loved one who is busy and often on the move, a gift such as the Apple iPod touch may be perfect. This media player has a large number of different uses, and allows for both organization and entertainment. Songs and video can be stored on the device and listened to using headphones, a feature that is particularly useful when traveling from one place to another, or when running. Additionally, there are many different types of applications that can be downloaded and installed, such as eBooks, games, organizers, calendars and radio.

If your loved one is very focused on family and family events, then a camera, such as the Nikon Coolpix may be a good choice. This wide-angle camera has an LCD screen, allowing for the capturing of images easily, even when events are occurring quickly. Having a camera can be important during family events, especially those that are unlikely to be repeated, as they allow for memories to be recorded for access at a later date.

A unique and thoughtful gift is that of the Ceiva digital photo viewer. In many ways, this device functions as a digital photo frame, but it has several functions that are not present in other similar products. Physically, the frame looks like any other photo frame, but it cycles through digital slideshows of photos. The photos, which the frame shows, can be changed remotely without the frame owner needing to have access to the computer or internet. This is a perfect gift for a loved one when you will be separated for a length of time, or for showing photos of family members who are physically distant. Another romantic gesture that can be done using this frame is to upload photographs from a specific event that you plan to take your loved one to, or one that you have visited in the past that has good memories for both of you.
