After I started working, I realised that finding presents during Christmas is not an easy task. Like what if you got something that someone doesn’t like. It’s such a headache right? 

Well, according to the research from the University of Bath, UK, no matter how difficult it is, you should never ever give money. The research found out that those who receive money as gifts often find it lacks meaning and effort. It also gives them the wrong idea that you might be looking down on them. 

Hence, while it’s okay to give money to kids, it’s not ideal to give to adults. Unless you know your friend loves money and has no problem receiving it.
