The Ultimate Cozy Holiday Gift Guide

The Ultimate Cozy Holiday Gift Guide

by Stacy on Dec 14, 2022

Giving a gift brings humans more joy than receiving one. It may seem hard to believe, but it’s true. In a 2018 study by Associate Professor Ed O’Brien of Chicago Booth and Northwestern PhD candidate Samantha Kassirer, it was found that the happiness one feels after giving a gift declines at a much slower rate than the happiness sparked after giving a gift. That’s why, at Meadow, our core mission is to inspire gift giving not only during the holidays, but all year round. 

There’s just something about gift giving that feeds the soul. Taking the time to choose a gift that’s perfect for the person you love proves to them how much you care. Gifting is a tangible expression of love, showing the recipient that you’ve taken the time to think about them in great depth to focus on what they would truly treasure and how much thought went into the gift.

For Meadow founder Stacy Valner, the best part of giving a gift is seeing the reactions of her friends and family when opening it. As a result of their genuine joy, a sense of cheerfulness overcomes her. There’s nothing better than witnessing her loved ones unwrap the gift, tear the paper off the box, and ultimately reveal the little surprise inside. 

“My family would say I am good at going overboard for the holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries,” Stacy says. “They tease me about it, but at the same time I know they are appreciative of the time and thought that went into the gifts.”
