The gift of the third millennium
Life does not stand still. Fashion is changing, things around us are changing. A bulky mobile phone or computer floppy disk can now be seen only in films of a decade ago. In some places – in cottages, attics, in garages and closets – they are still gathering dust like unnecessary trash. But, perhaps, soon they will also become the subject of collectors’ dreams, like gramophone records or old china became in their time. After all, things are symbols of an era in which the everyday life of people, their desires and aspirations are reflected.
The same can be said about gifts. A modern gift has its own distinctive features, and differs significantly from a gift from the 90s, and even more so, from the 80s of the last century. Thirty years ago, in an era of total deficit, literally everything had to be “taken out” – from napkins to jewelry. Therefore, I did not have to choose especially. Almost any good and solid thing could become a gift at that time. Perhaps, it was from that time that the tradition to present dishes, books, kitchen utensils, crystal vases and bedding as a gift was preserved.
And then a real “gift coup” occurred, when a whole stream of foreign goods fell upon the consumer. Finally, it became possible to purchase bright, elegant things, and without any records and queues. Shops and cheap markets grew like mushrooms after the rain. Choosing a gift was easy – it was enough to leave the house and go to the nearest shopping pavilion, where absolutely everything was sold – watches, souvenirs, clothes and accessories. As a rule, everything is very beautiful, but of extremely dubious quality – the “branded” watches stopped exactly two weeks later (their warranty period expired), t-shirts, scarves and blouses molted after the first wash, and from the corners of “leather” belts and bags treacherously scanned cardboard. But was less of the joy they delivered?
Yes, joy is what we give gifts for. Joy is priceless and cannot be bought, cannot be measured in monetary terms. Often the most expensive gift does not bring us joy, but some cute little thing is carefully stored for many years. In the 2000s, buyers became more circumspect and demanding. They have the opportunity to choose high-quality, stylish things. Today you will not surprise anyone with loud, world famous names, unusual design and excellent technical characteristics. And so, once having appeared, the tendency to give unusual, original gifts has steadily strengthened. To the question, what kind of gift is it from the third millennium, one can confidently answer: it is a gift made with the soul. According to independent research, 60% of respondents consider a do-it-yourself thing to be a welcome gift. 70% call originality the main sign of a good gift, and its value is important only for half. At the same time, the majority nevertheless recognizes that a wedding gift or a gift to the leader must be solid and expensive.
