    Different than the permanent happiness from the good memories with a significant other

    But what if you gave a gift to your significant other and they got insanely happy? Wouldn't their happiness in turn make you happy? That memory of the joy you had opening gifts would be considered part of your permanent happiness. You would both look back on that day and smile just thinking about the joy you brought each other with those meaningful gifts.

    Gives us a reason to be blind to the world around us for a short period of time which helps keep some people within their sanity. For me, it's about getting free shit.

    In that case, there's no significant other I can give it to

    Did you mean a reason not to be blind?
