Are technical gadgets better gifts than non-technical?
There is nothing more personal than a gift; other than conveying a message it depicts the givers attitude, appreciation and feelings towards the receiver. Declining to give a gift to deserving receiver is also a gift depending on how you look at it. Well that is a topic for another day.
When we talk of technical gifts it simply refers to gifts peculiar to or characteristic of a particular art, science, profession, trade, etc. Technical simply means it can offer what a non-technical gift can offer and much more. Who doesn’t want more?
If you buy her a gold-dipped natural rose she can keep it with her for a long time to remind her of that special moment unlike a fresh rose which will wither in a matter of days.
It would be a bit unfair to walk into a sports shop and pick the first ball you stumble into, unless of course it is the gold-dipped golf ball and a tee set or something close to that. While this ball can serve the same purpose as the others it has a unique and sophisticated artistic twist that shows that you put some thought and effort into your gift.
Suppose a video game which has been rated by reviewers as high quality and has state of the art 3D graphics. Unfortunately, this game has a large learning curve. It requires at least a half a day learning how to play. In such a case a less technical video that has been rated as being of normal quality with average graphics and is easy to pick up and play with friends is more preferable. The technical aspect also depends on the receiver; will the technicality of the gift be beneficial to him/ her?
Other than the gift itself presentation is very important. Believe it or not feelings such as: love, sincerity, attention and interest can be felt from the way the gift has been packaged and given out. Pay attention to the details keeping the receiver in mind. Personally I think the person who came up with the idea of presenting an engagement ring at the bottom of a filled wine glass was a genius. Blessings come to those who give!
