With the happiest season of the year fast approaching, it’s time to start giving some serious thought to that Christmas gifting list! Have you heard about how making other people happy makes you happy as well? Scientific studies found that an act such as gifting produces endorphins in the gifter's brains – the feel-good hormones that make you happy. I'm sure most of us can attest to this and have experienced a high when your recipient loved the gift you took pains to get. So why not put this theory into practice with the upcoming gifting season?
