History | Stocking Stuffers | Holiday Gifts | Gift Inspiration

The holiday season is fast approaching with just 100 days until Christmas! Have you been thinking about what gifts you want to give this year? Many of you are probably looking for more ideas. Since the beginning of time, humans have given gifts to one another to show appreciation for their friends, family members and loved ones. Giving a gift says "thank you" without having to say it. Whether it's something small or large. This blog has a list of 100 things that would make great presents for all occasions. From stocking stuffers to big ticket items, there are plenty of options that will suit every budget.  

The History of Gift Giving  

The history of gift giving is a long one, dating back to the ancient Egyptians. It's been said that early on they would give gifts to show affection for each other and to seal business deals. Ancient Romans used to gift each other with symbolic foods like eggs and Native Americans gave one another animal skins. The first recorded use of the word "gift" was in 1000 BC when it was originally used to refer to an animal given as a sacrifice. The modern day holiday season is known for gifting glee. Presents are wrapped in cheerful paper and given out by Santa, elves, friends and family members alike.   

Regardless of the time period or culture, it seems as though every society has had some form of present-giving tradition. In time, these practices became more widespread with people exchanging gifts during celebrations such as birthdays and weddings.  As society has evolved, so have our holiday traditions.  

People exchange gifts not only with friends and family but also with colleagues or acquaintances who may not be too close of a friend or relative. For this reason it can be hard trying to find the right present for someone you don't know very well - especially if you're looking for something inexpensive yet thoughtful.
