Gift Exchange is Wasteful
bad gift
Gift exchange is encouraged by consumerism. It is commonly done during festivals. It may or may not happen during an exchange game. Sometimes upon receiving a gift from a relative or a friend, we feel compelled to give something in return. Looking for the gift and wrapping the gift needs cost and time.

When we buy something for ourselves, value is created because we value the product. When we receive something we do not need from others, even though it may be expensive, we do not treasure it. The choice of gift to be given is very subjective: what we like does not mean others like it too. It may backfire by annoying instead of pleasing the person. Be good to others during normal time instead of giving gift during festivals.
