Extract from blog post:

Positive psychology tells us a few important things about present giving:

  • Materialism makes us unhappy
  • Meaningful experiences give us longer lasting happiness  compared to buying stuff.
  • Giving makes us happier than receiving.

What would non-materialistic birthday presents look like for you? Would you enjoy them more than some new stuff?
