, maybe, but there is an idea that the gifts we give freely, because it feels so good to give them, in turn moves the recipients of those gifts to give gifts of their own. The gifts are genuine and form the basis of real connections.
I think the spontaneous exchanges of gifts are too far and few between nowadays (in large part because of the need for attention that seems to serve as a piss-poor motivator for most). It's so nice to catch a wave of gift-giving going on. Keep up the good stuff!
