What Is the Best Gift You Have Ever Received?

So, I’ve obviously had Christmas on my mind. Last week I did a poll on Facebook to find out everyone’s thoughts on sending out holiday cards.

I feel like over the years I receive less and less cards and was thisclose to not doing it any more. I had 60 of you vote and here are the final counts:

So it looks like I’ll be sticking with sending out holiday cards, at least for another year!

Now  I’m thinking about holiday shopping. It goes without saying that I haven’t started shopping for Christmas yet. I typically don’t start until after Thanksgiving. However, I’ll be on my sister’s wedding cruise for a week in December… which really limits my shopping (and procrastinating) time.

I also have the WORST time figuring out what I even want for Christmas.

So, I’m totally going to cheat and ask you all…

Tell me the what! Tell me the why! Tell me the when! Tell me all about it in the comments!

Maybe this little exercise can help us all figure out what to add to our shopping lists!

  1. Still the best gift I have ever received (unfortunately it is my ex husband who gets the credit) was the large National Geographic Atlas of the World. The nerd in me loves it and I was hopping up and down in my seat when I got it. Bonus points to him for walking 20 blocks in December to get it from the NG store downtown.

  2. Years ago, my then boyfriend (now husband) gave me a pretty little necklace. I still have it, and it means a lot to me, because it was the first one he ever gave me. I knew it took a lot for him to buy it for me, as he was a student at that time, and worked only part time.I remember when he gave it to me, he said, ” now, it feels like Christmas. ” It was the first time he had been able to relax and enjoy the holidays. When I think of that time,I get all emotional!

  3. My husband once sent me a beautiful floral arrangement to me at work on HIS birthday. The note read “you are still the best present I have ever gotten’. Swoon!
