Gift: A token of gratitude that is shown to a person who has done something nice for us to show how much we appreciate the gesture. Many people deserve appreciation, but as an observation of society, "we", understanding exceptions are always out there in that population, often don't take the time to show our appreciation. It takes away from the time devoted to advancing ourselves for the benefit of us. However, it doesn't have to take much time at all. It could be a simple, "Thank You... for your hands, your lessons, your time, your service, your food, your shelter, your transportation... your energy." However for those who may want to go the extra step with limited budgets, you can certainly show that appreciation with a little creativity. The gift should be appropriate to the individual --- if its personal, its likely to mean more. And if it personal to them, then it becomes personal to you, because then all your work has its own story.
