Ep 105: The Connection between Gift Giving & Love Languages
Today we are talking all about the connection of gift giving and the 5 love languages. According to Gary Chapman, there are five ways we express and experience love –which he calls “love languages.”
The 5 love languages are: Acts of Service, Words of Affirmation, Physical Touch, Quality Time & Receiving Gifts.
In our conversation, we talk about specific gifts that are appreciated by each love language.

- Plan a romantic weekend away
- Schedule routine date nights
- Committing a certain amount of time technology free every day
- Take a Road Trip

- Back rubs/foot rubs
- Be intentional about showing affection (ie kissing hello and goodbye)
- Holding hands
WORDS OF AFFIRMATION:
- Framed quote
- Inspirational message book
- Handwritten letter
- Make them a mix tape
- Public validation (ie social media)
- Buy them concert tickets when their favorite band is in town
- After a trip, bring home a souvenir or trinket that made you think of them
- Order their favorite childhood candy or snack ― bonus points if it’s a regional treat or something that has since been discontinued
Tip: Keep a note in your phone of specific things your loved ones mention wanting or needing so you have a list of gift ideas for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays or just because.
