For a birthday, a thank you, or just because. We all have it in common, we like to give! Science points out: giving makes us happier than receiving. Why do we enjoy giving the perfect gift to someone we care about so much?

Connection

Giving a present can bring two people together and enhance a feeling of connection. A lot of people assume spending money on yourself  will make you happy, but according to scientist, you could be a happier person if you regularly surprise someone with a nice present. A gift brings people together, which makes your brain happy!

Random acts of kindness

Random acts of kindness is a term from positive psychology and relates to the psychology of giving gifts. Research shows that you can feel happier after six weeks of giving a present/ or doing something for someone else. That seems like an easy way to lift your own spirits!

Helper’s high

Giving for the sake of giving, without wanting something back. Helping others can make you happy. In fact, it releases happiness hormones that can give you a so called helper’s high (perfect for the ones among us that are too lazy to achieve a runner’s high ;). You don’t even have to go super big for this, even a small gesture can stimulate happy hormones like endorphins and oxytocine which make you feel better.

SAY YOU CARE

We love that the best self-care seems to be helping others! Perfectly in line with our mission: SAY YOU CARE! Here you can find all our FEELGOOD gifts to surprise someone you care about. As a bonus to surprising someone, you get your own helper’s high endorphins pumping ;).
