Today's word of the day is dadivoso.

This is a very eloquent way of saying generous and comes from the noun dádiva meaning gift.

It describes a person who is giving, generous and open-handed.

Here are some examples of how to use this word:


  • Mi abuelo era una persona muy dadivosa. Le encantaba ayudar a los demás.

        My grandfather was a very giving person. He loved helping others.


  • Es una persona muy dadivosa y altruista

        He is a very generous and altruist person.
