Birthday Gifts: Fruit trees make great gifts.




Gratitude. They say it is one of the primary feelings that express joy and happiness. When you are so happy you thank the powers-that-be, your friends and family, you are being grateful for all that you have. It’s a silent prayer you offer to the Universe.

Plant fruit trees to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. Gift trees.



Few joys express that kind of gratitude when a child is born in the family. That the newborn is healthy and complete in every way possible is not a rare thing. And yet, gratitude abounds in the family when the baby cries a hearty wail for the first time. Amidst shrieks of joy and tears of happiness, there are promises to spoil the child silly,-arguments over the name, short-term and long-term plans for the child’s future. Prayers are offered at places of worship and celebrations are announced at home.

Gifting trees on the birth of a new born or gift a tree to new parents.


Why not share this joy and gratitude with the Universe, too?
Why not make the world a better place for the same child?
When you hold the child with extreme care and ensure that the room he sleeps in is clean, why not give him a chance to breathe fresh air, too?
Why not plant a fruit tree?
One that helps a less-privileged family to give its little ones fresh mangoes or apples or guavas?
Or some extra income from the produce, for that matter?
Why not make the world a better place for other children, too?

In fact, happy days such as weddings, anniversaries, are a perfect time to plant a tree.
Planting a tree to mark auspicious days is a tradition in several world cultures. Commit to a relationship or renew your vows by planting a tree and see the love grow, what do you say?
