One can find a reason for something whenever we really want to do it, as we all know that if we really want one thing, we can do or have it.
Speaking about things we do not need a precise reason for doing , offering unique inexpensive gifts is a good example. Offering a small attention does not require a special event that needs a formal celebration. Ordinary people have different type of needs, so we only need to keep our eyes open.
Identify the need of your friend
So many times in life we regret not having done one thing or another, or not having said the proper words in a certain circumstance. Why should we not take action and do the right thing at the right moment? Making somebody feel good does not cost so much and it can make us feel so good! So, the first ingredient for the “happiness” recipe is to identify what somebody needs and then to create the moment when you offer him/ her whet they need. Beside this, we have been educated to be good and compassionate and charitable. A person in need will not always make you part of his universe, so pay attention and be careful! Entering with your boots on in someone’s life can produce the opposite effect!
Go shopping with a list in your hands
Before starting with your shopping, analyze the whole situation and don’t forget to add a lot of care and attention in all you intend to offer! A lonely woman living only with her cat might need a little attention both for herself and also for the creature she shares her life with! So, fill your basket with things you know that are necessary for both the woman and the cat! This will create a more impressive effect! After all, that cat is the faithful companion that knows her thoughts and sorrows best!
A neighbour of yours that has just moved together with his family might need some house warming gifts! All his family members will be happy if you choose to offer them something that they will all need: a trash that can be filled with kitchen tools or a gadget that all of them will be supposed to use some day.
Choose the right moment
Our good intention of offering care and attention must be materialized in a special day when our friend is at home. We must not risk remaining with the whole box beautifully wrapped in front of an unfriendly door that refuses to open. So, a little investigation about what he or she wants must be accompanied by some details regarding the moment we can offer the nice surprise to him/her. Do not hesitate to ring at a door that needs your presence! It is so easy to offer inexpensive unique gifts and to bring happiness all around you!
