Gift Giving

Gift giving is spontaneous but oddly expected especially when there is an occasion. It is an expression of happiness coming from the person giving. Gifts are also meant as a form of kindness and forgiveness.

What would be a good gift for a 13 years wedding anniversary?

A night out is always fun or a nice piece of jewelry, a shirt, shoes, pants, any type of clothing really. But you obviously know your spouse better than I do, so think about what they would want.

You could buy a wedding anniversary ring for him or her. It's better if you buy real gold.

I think a handmade gift would be precious, such as a jewelry, a bunch of roses. What matters is a cherishing gift given genuinely and sincerely.

What should you put into a get well soon package?

Well, make or buy a card and write a warming message with who it's to and from and top it off with a smiley face. Get a comedy or sweet movie. If you have a child, get your child to draw a cute picture. Buy something useful, like a pen or pencil with a nice design on it. Then get something they want. Woman: a beautiful flower vase wrapped in bubble wrap. Man: A toolkit or fishing set. Child: a Webkinz or Zhu Zhu pet. You could also put a litte teddy bear!

What to get your bus driver for Christmas?

Make something like cookies or candies and put them in a nice Christmas bag. Then give it to your bus driver!

Make sure that your bus driver can accept home made food gifts, first.

Otherwise, cash or a gift card would be good gifts for a bus driver.

What are the gifts for each wedding anniversary?

== == Appropriate anniversary gift giving for the first, fifth, tenth, fifteenth, twentieth, twenty-fifth and fiftieth years of marriage. Gifts in the early years of marriage were small remembrances, or tokens, such as paper (1st), wood (5th), and tin (10th). In later years of matrimony, gifts gained value, including crystal (15th), china (20th), silver (25th) and gold (50th). The light-hearted nature of early anniversary gift giving, saying "the paper, wooden and tin presents are seldom anything but jokes but, still mean something to many people. Crystal is the earliest that is likely to be taken seriously by the gift-bearers." {| ! Year |} {| ! Traditional |} {| ! Modern |} 1st Wedding Anniversarypaperclock

What is a hostess gift?

A hostess gift is a gift given to your host or hostess as a sort of 'pre-thank you' for having you. A bottle of wine, flowers or maybe even gourmet coffee are common hostess gifts.

A small hostess gift is generally considered appropriate for dinners and parties, while guests who are staying for several days may get something larger.

Are there any Italian celebrations that involve gift giving?

Italian Gift Giving Celebrations

For New Year's, ancient Romans gave friends a glass jar full of dates and dried figs in honey, with a bay leaf branch so the coming year would be sweet and full of good fortune. Neapolitans still wrap dried figs in fresh bay leaves and exchange them at New Year's to ensure abundance.

For enjoyable reading about Italy's holiday celebrations, festivals, customs, food, pageants, etc., I recommend Carol Field's book, Celebrating Italy. You may find it at your library or for less than ten dollars on the Internet. Salute!

Here's more from Wiki s contributors:

  • La Befana brings the equivalent of stockings to kids around the time of Epiphany. If they're bad she brings coal (which is actually a sweet black candy now).
  • Often in Italian weddings the bride and groom give wedding favors to the groomsmen, bridesmaid, and parents. These are often trinket type gifts handed out during the wedding party. Such items can be found on sites such as the ones located in the related links and many others.
  • Christmas is all Italian

What is bone china made of?

Bone china is made of 50% bone ash, & 25% each of china clay and china stone. It is combined with water to make a slurry, which is then fashioned into cups, saucers, plates and so on. The pieces must be fired in a kiln at high degrees of heat (1100c to 1250c) for the china to become hard and strong. It is the bone (usually animal bone, cleaned of all meat and glue) that gives the china its transparent whiteness. The ingredients of bone china are china clay, china stone, silica, alumina, alkalies, lime and bone ash. It is fired at high of 2,300 to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit. In the best grades of English bone china, 50% or more of the body consists of refined bone ash prepared from specially selected animal bones which are reduced to a fine powder by heat. The bone is mixed with the finest china clays and highest quality Cornish stone. Specially skilled workers are needed in the manufacture of bone china and the best and most highly skilled in the world are found in the pottery district of England.

In a white elephant gift exchange, what does the "white elephant" refer to?

By this point, obviously, it describes the silly presents you bring to pass around at the holiday party. But it draws its roots from a monumentally petty (and almost surely false) legend: kings bestowing actual white elephants on their adversaries as intentionally impractical gifts.

Kings of Siam (today, Thailand) were the petty party, so the legend goes. White elephants, a revered animal in parts of East Asia, required constant care and didn’t bring in any money—essentially, the kings hoped to bankrupt the recipients under the veil of generosity.

This legend, though, has no basis in Siamese history and seems to have originated in America; nonetheless, in the States, the term “white elephant” came to mean something impractical but indispensable. Gift swap parties—where guests brought absurd, inexpensive gifts and swapped them—came to popularity in the early 20th century, and the phrase “white elephant party” quickly became attached to it. Thankfully, it’s all in fun—generally, the fewer bankruptcies caused by the gifts, the better.
