When do we love receiving gifts the most? On some special occasions? Is it on birthdays? Oh, or Christmas?, Nah.. The best kind of gift is the one we get without a reason, when it's just an ordinary day, no anniversaries, no nothing. The "Just Because I felt like it" gifts are the best.
So, if you want to remind your loved ones how much you love them, give them a small little gift when they least expect it. What would make these gifts even more wonderful is if you made them yourself instead of hoping from mall to mall in their search.
