Home :: :: Gifts to France
The gifting traditions across the world are different from one country to another. For example let us look at few of them like; in Asian countries sweets, chocolates, jewellery, soft toys, Flowers, cash and such things can be gifted during various occasions. People also believe that a gift should always be given with right hand and also received with right hand too. It is just a practice that is followed by many and the ritual is being followed blindly, there is a notion among people that if we give or receive our gifts using any other hands it means we are disrespecting them. A pack of sweets or dry fruits while visiting your friends or relatives during festivals. While n some part of the country white is symbolizes as death and hence is avoided most of the time. But in some parts of the country it is used during weddings and such functions. Gifting cash is also a common trend in India, we gift cash during occasions like wedding, house warming, baby shower and house warming. There is another fascinating fact to it the cash is always gifted in odd units like 11, 55, 101 or 501. Idols of Gods, a pack of sweets or dry fruits are on the list too. Greeting cards are the most frequently used gifts in America as people exchange them during occasions like Mother’s day, Father’s day, Children’s day, Christmas or during New Year. Thank you cards are also used for the purpose of saying thanks if being invited of dinner, lunch, thanksgiving or even during picnics. A bottle of wine or any beverages can also be grateful. The common things that are gifted here are chocolates, clothing, toys, books, electronic gadgets and many other such things.
At the same time there is something different in France; people here would rather not take a bottle of wine with them while being invited for a party, get together or during lunch and dinner. The reason behind it is wines are an important factor in here and so your host would already have picked the best wine from the store for the night. But flowers are a go to gift here and you should keep in mind that while gifting a bouquet the flowers in it should be odd numbered and also if you are planning to gift them during house parties like dinner night or lunch, you probably can send them beforehand so that they can use these flowers for the purpose of decoration. Chocolates might be one of the oldest gifts of all time. And it is usually suits during every occasion but did you know that it has a history attached to it too.
Aztec Emperor Montezuma used to consume several cups of chocolate to maintain his masculinity. Despite of the bitter taste it had, chocolate was very popular in Europe during those days. In fact, Casanova called chocolate "elixir of love" and drank it instead of champagne .It was due to this belief that the nuns were forbidden to eat or drink chocolate from their sexual reputations, it held. Another story on chocolates tells that French doctors used to prescribe chocolates to mend a broken heart.
Now you might know why it just takes a chocolate to make someone’s day better. Very few people know that this tradition of sending or gifting red roses is actually a gift to the world itself. Digging a bit of history, it is believed that Joe DiMaggio, the legendary baseball player sent flowers to his better half Marilyn Monroe. Yes we know what is so exciting about it, the thrilling part is that he used to send this gift for 20 years, that too after she was in her grave. Apparently Joe had signed a contract with a flower seller to send flowers to his wife forever and eventually he found out that forever would be a long time and so he canceled it. This is the thought behind using red roses while proposing. Similarly there are stories attached behind every gift and we just need to know where it started.
