Why do we give gifts? Of course, to bring joy to others, but… yourself too. Research shows that giving gifts is no less rewarding and rewarding than receiving them. Psychologists divide donors into groups according to different criteria, for example, there are altruistic and egoistic donors. This does not mean that one is bad and the other is good. They just have different approaches.
The former try to choose an individual gift that will evoke pleasant emotions for a long time and remind the recipient of the giver.
The latter prefer to go somewhere together, which to do something together and experience these emotions together.
On the eve of Valentine's Day on February 14, we want to show you some examples of gifts from these two types of people.

Gifts from selfish people:
Weekend at the hotel together. This is a wonderful gift if you choose the right place. There are two main criteria here – the location of the hotel and the level of comfort. Try to find out where your partner prefers to relax in the winter – on the Dead Sea or in Eilat, on the Sea of Galilee or in Tel Aviv. The second key to success – the hotel itself. A good choice would be the Isrotel chain, which provides excellent service and a large selection of hotels throughout the country. On the Dead Sea in particular, Isrotel offers you the designer hotel Nevo, an island of delightful tranquility with a magnificent range of spa treatments, hydrogen sulfide pools, sauna, jacuzzi, gym, restaurants and a children's club. The hotel is within walking distance from the beach, at the foot of the mountains. Details about this and other hotels can be found on the Isrotel website – https://www.isrotel.co.il/
Theatre. And really, why not spend the evening of February 14 together watching an interesting performance? For more than 30 years, Israel has had Yiddishpil, the most original and unique theater in the country. This is the only troupe in Israel that puts on performances at Mame Loshen. – the language of our grandparents. Almost all of them are in Yiddish, accompanied by subtitles in Russian and Hebrew. You can get acquainted with the theater’s repertoire by city and order tickets, including in Russian, at the BRAVO box office: https://idishpil.kassa.co.il/.

Egoist and altruist – two in one
There is a gift that both types of donors we are talking about can give. True, only if your partner smokes and cannot or does not want to leave this bad habit. Give him a tobacco heating device IQOS. The FDA confirms that IQOS emits 90-95% less harmful chemicals than burning cigarettes. And besides, it does not leave behind a smell either on clothes, or in the car, or in the apartment. Although, if you can convince your partner to stop smoking altogether – it will be even better. Well, if not – let him at least cause less harm to himself, and to you – unpleasant feelings.
And finally, two little tips not for givers, but for recipients:
1. And the conditional “egoist”, and conditional “altruist” wants to like his gift, tries for this – don't disappoint him.
2.If you know how to make it clear what kind of gift you want, then it doesn't matter at all who your giver is by psychotype – “selfish” or “altruist”, he will give you what you dream of.
