Best gift received and given
#1
I thought it might be fun to talk about gifts

What is the best gift you received this year?

What is the best gift you gave someone this year?


Let me start:
I got a steampunk necklace from my sister that was quite awesome

The best gift I gave was a hand blender set for my dad - that might not sound like a good gift, but he played with it all night and proudly used it for dinner yesterday and was cooing about it

What did you give and what did you get?

I got a nice tablet and I gave my daughter a tuxedo shirt, bow tie, and suspenders. That might not sound like much but it was one of the few things she hadn't asked for and she loved it.

Mrmiss that sounds like an awesome gift! And finding something that people we love had not thought to wish for is often the best gifts!

The best gift I got was a set of fluffy cushions and throws for our new house. They were bought at the start of the month by my grandparents and my granddad suddenly passed away the day after but he had chosen the throws himself so they're very dear to me, and so soft and snuggly too.

And the best gift I gave was to my mum, her favourite perfume that she hasn't bought herself in about three years because it can be really expensive, and I got her a big bottle of it too with a new book by her favourite author so she was really thrilled.

I took my brother out for dinner. I do this every year for his birthday, because dining out is expensive in my country, and he does not have a lot of extra money for that kind of luxury. We allways go some place nice that serves his favorite dishes.


Super best gift ever: I had problems in my lovelife this summer, and it looked like the love of my life were going to leave me. But he came back for me, and we are still together. 

And:
I got a pedometer from my bf (a watch that keeps track of the amount of steps you take during the day, yor heartbeat and so on). I wanted to become more sporty, so this was a super gift!

Ooh since this is alive again:

Best gift received was a Kindle Paperwhite (that I've wanted for years) and Amazon gift cards and Kindle Unlimited.

Best gift given was the flight stick (joystick for flying/space games) I got the husband.

Also the MeowBox my cats got was pretty good. They got fish jerky. Ew, yes, but they love it.

Best gift recieved is a toss up between an Xbox 360 (friend decided he didn't want it anymore), and one that I should be getting next week - purple hair! I've been dealing with SADs and got dumped at Christmas, so hopefully it'll be a good confidence boost.

Best gift given? I made a friend some jewellery that she has been oohing and aahing about. Smile

The best gift I received this year was a stuffed animal alpaca my mom got for me. Totally without purpose, but money has been really tight and I have a soft spot for alpacas (I want to raise some, but I like in the burbs, they allow chickens but no other farm animals). It sits on my dresser Smile

The best gift I have given? I had some extra flight miles so I was able to give one of my very dearest friends a round trick ticket from CA to MN to visit me! It was a gift for us both!
