Love Language #3: Giving Gifts

If you remember, our perfect guinea pigs for the Love Language exercise are my parents.  Our next is “Gifts”.

My mom and dad’s thinking about Gift Giving is simple:  He/She thought about me (regardless of how little or much it costs or how often you receive the same presents).

Through many years, I’ve seen my parents surprise each other with presents (big and small) even without occasions.

Dad’s thoughtful gifts to my Mom:

  • Yellow flowers on some days when he came home from work
  • Watches (always symbolized “time for each other”)
  • Fresh Cherries as soon as it came to season (my mom is not a “fruit” person but she loves cherries)
  • A collection of Frank Sinatra, Barbara Streisand, and Tony Bennett songs 🙂
  • Love Notes
  • More yellow flowers 🙂

Mom’s thoughtful gifts to my Dad:

  • White flowers – anytime she feels like it
  • Watches (always symbolized “time for each other”)
  • His favorite brand of cookies
  • A collection of Frank Sinatra, Barbara Streisand and Tony Bennett songs J – yes, they try to beat each other who can get the first CD!
  • Love Letters
  • Many more white flowers 🙂

Come to think of it – my parents are very much alike!

For some, Gifts are visual symbols of love. For others, it’s not that important.

You have to make your first discovery in becoming a great lover. You and yours truly speak different love languages – and one of it may be “Gift Giving”.
