As you shop for gifts and presents for everyone on your list this year maybe this question has crossed your mind… what’s the difference between a gift and a present?
Many would say they are one in the same. Which is kind of true. The only subtle difference is that a “gift” can be something more intangible. You could share your gift of being a good cook by making dinner for someone, or performing Christmas carols and sharing your musical gift. Whereas a “present” is normally something you can see and hold to present to someone. That’s why kids are always excited to see how many PRESENTS Santa brought. Because they are things you can open.
Hope you get a lot of gifts AND presents this holiday season.
