Some people believe it is important to give gifts and presents to friends and family to show that we care about them. Others think that there are better ways to show affection to them. Discuss both the views and give your own opinion.
It is argued that giving precious items is the best method to show loved ones that how good is our relationship, while others say that there are many other possible ways to show our love and caring. While it is a good way to show our love on presenting precious gifts, I believe that looking after our loved ones during their difficult days is the best way to show our love.
On the one hand, presenting precious items to our close family members and friends is a sign that how much we love them. This gives them a feeling of having a strong relationship, and as a result, they are able to make a long-lasting relationship. For example, a recent study by Cambridge University found that 25% of people who offered gifts on special moments to their family or friends had a life-long relationship. However, I do not agree with this viewpoint because of the reason elucidated below.
On the other hand, it is a much better approach to help people during their hard times. This is because relatives or friends can be in a desperate need of assistance to overcome their bad times and this would be real care for if we provide some kind of financial help or valuable advice to move forward. To illustrate, l prefer to give some kind of assistance to my loved ones when they need it rather than spending money on things that they hardly use in their daily life. Therefore, I agree with this school of thought because of the real value of caring is when we help our closed ones during their difficult days.
In conclusion, although giving presents on special occasions is one of the good methods to show our affection towards our loved ones, I believe that it would be better if we help them when they are struggling to make ends need.
