So talking about the insignificant being significant is a something that keeps coming up in class discussions, and I think the giving of gifts sort of goes along with this. Tolkien goes so in depth about who gives what to whom and why. This is something I've found a little confusing. It was mentioned a few weeks ago in class that giving gifts is a way to further describe a character, as is the case with Bilbo, but I still don't see the whole point of it. Anyone wanna explain?
