Why give a Gift Basket as a gift?
Gifting is universal across cultures as a sign of appreciation and thoughtfulness
Various individual cultures and the broader human culture has invented a variety of gifting occasions including everything from a simple thank you gift or thinking of you gift to more timely gifting occasions like birthdays, housewarmings and anniversaries
Other, broader examples include the popular holiday events such as Christmas, Hanukkah, Easter, 4th of July (here in the US), New Years and even Thanksgiving
Additional gifting occasions may be more personally triggered such as simply sending a gift to a friend or family member you haven’t seen in awhile to say “I miss you” or, simply “I’m thinking of you”
Positive acknowledgement is another form of perfect gifting etiquette like saying thank you to a coworker for their help on a successful project or an administrative assistant who goes above and beyond in helping to keep you organized
