The Phenomena of Gift Giving in the 21st Century
Whether you like it or not, society today has become very focused on gift giving for numerous occasions. For example, graduation, weddings, anniversaries, Valentines Day, getting a new job, leaving your job, getting a new house, birthday, Christmas, and much more. In years past, graduating was just something that was expected, as was getting a job and a house. Nobody needed (much less expected) gifts for these basic life expectations but, for some reason, it is now a societal norm.
In this post, we will examine how to come up with the best gift ideas and why this has become a relatively normal thing in our society.
Where to get Gift Ideas
Unsurprisingly given the demand, entrepreneurs have come up with creative ways to ride the trends of gift giving. Gift ideas websites have cropped up, with some becoming national hits and netting millions per month in revenue. The biggest site in this category is of course Amazon, which has positively exploded over the last few years and is even delivering groceries now. They remain true to their roots however, and have a gift ideas section. They are not the only ones though, and brands like Target, Walmart, and other big names all have their own takes on gift finding. Smaller independent sites have also hopped on the trend hoping to get a piece of the action. Buzzfeed gifts and even mom blogs are all putting out content for the masses to soak up. You can find ideas for Pokemon gifts, gifts for astronomers and much more online as well as any product from DXRacer gaming chairs to full arcade systems. With the power of the internet, the gift giving phenomena has only just started, and being able to purchase basically anything with the push of a button means that it will not slow down anytime soon. In fact, more e-commerce websites than ever are popping up, signalling the growth of an already massive industry.
In short, finding a great gift online should be easy, the hard part will be picking from the plethora of websites and finding just the right thing to give. Just kidding, there are YouTube videos for that (watch below).
