We have all heard that it’s better to give than receive, but the real reason people give gifts is to establish and strengthen a relationship with another person. And not just for the romantic kind, a gift can be for a family member, a friend, a neighbor, etc. A gift can even be given in a non-personal context, such as in a working relationship, or within an organization to acknowledge a contribution or a job well done.
On the most fundamental level, we give gifts because we’re supposed to. And in fact, the custom has existed since the beginning of human civilization. But the real reason we give gifts is that it provides us formal opportunities to show our appreciation, to show them that we are grateful for them and the value they bring to our lives.
But how can we stay on top of gifting in today’s hyper-busy world? Enter LuvBucks, the app that makes it easy to be a gift-giving genius.
LuvBucks is the perfect blend of sentiment and utility. It’s simple for you and meaningful to them because the giftee decides how (and when and where) to spend their LuvBucks. All you need to do is download the app, select how much you wish to spend, and send it to their email.
You can even personalize your eGift with a note, pic, or video. This makes the gift really special and is why LuvBucks is much more personal than a generic gift card through a credit card company.
One of the best features of LuvBucks is that you can schedule gifts in advance. This means you can schedule a year's worth of gifting all at once so you never forget a gift. You can even schedule repeating gifts for those you really want to spoil.
Bonus, you make a positive social impact every time you give LuvBucks through our giving program. LuvBucks gives a percentage of our profits to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. You can learn more about why we give in our About section.
The gift recipient can spend their LuvBucks like a credit card at thousands of brands across 30+ major online retailers. The LuvBucks app works just like a virtual credit card. The best part is that the gift recipient really gets what they want and need - no more unwanted gifts that end up being a disappointment to everyone!

Care Gifting is a way of creating connection while taking it to the next level by sending a gift that lets them know they are in your thoughts. Because if you can’t mail a hug, this is the next best thing!
We often give gifts to re-confirm or establish our connection with others, which means that they're a reflection of both the giver and the receiver, as well as their unique relationship. Giving a gift to someone we care about allows us to communicate our feelings and appreciation for them.
The joy of giving often outlasts the pleasure of accepting the gift. What’s more, is that spending money on others predicts greater happiness than spending on oneself. Following are some reasons why we gift and a little inspiration to go along with it!
