If you want a lasting happiness for someone, buy experiences NOT things. Most people spend money on possessions like clothes, accessories, gadgets, jewelry, cars. You may think that a physical possession will give both short-term happiness (you finally obtain what you desired), as well as long-lasting happiness because a physical possession will last longer than a brief holiday or a short pleasant experience.
