What Your Holiday Gifting Style Says About Your Relationship

What Your Holiday Gifting Style Says About Your Relationship | Brenda's Whims | Scoop.it
It’s that time of year. You know, the candy-cane-licking, cookie-baking, wrapping-paper-tearing, gift-giving holiday season. Well, guess what?

First, think about what you got (or are planning to get) your S.O. this holiday season. Next, see how it fits in with the super accurate (JK, you guys, these are just for fun) categories, below, to see what it means about your relationship. Then, enjoy the holidays—and your gifts—with your love. It’s as easy as that. So, which of these gifting styles best describe you? The Crafty DIY-er: (AKA The Pinterest Princess) You’re artsy, love a good homemade (or home-cooked) gift, and are obsessed with all things Etsy.

eNews 's insight:

Fascinating stuff: The overarching goal of research in my lab is to understand the mechanisms by which the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems interact, and how these interactions influence behavioral outcomes such as cognition, emotion and addiction. Immune molecules powerfully impact neuroendocrine function, including hormone-behavior interactions, during health and disease. Similarly, alterations in hormones, such as during stress, can powerfully impact immune function or reactivity.
