    instead of using paper or card,my friend gave me shirt that has the most tearjerker message;she used i guess a textile rubberized paint.her handwritting,as she knows, is the ugliest but it is the cutest and loveliest text i ever had on my t-shirt.

    My friend got me a cup shaped like a certain part of the male anatomy for my birthday (just the handle, of course.) I never used it and actually had to hide it away in my dorm room, but I thought it was hilarious and it fit in quite well with my sense of humor. I always laughed whenever I saw it. So, not very useful, but the thought counted!

    While we were dating, my husband gave me a pair of diamond stud earrings. With him being broke most of the time, they were super small and tiny, but they were the best gift because he picked them out himself.

  • Anna Crystal says:

    My favourite gift ever was an expensive bird necklace. My family knows that – if I wasn’t born as a human – I’d have been a bird instead and since I was four, I collected bird stuff and some expensive Japanese brand released an overwhelming bird necklace in 2008 and they really bought it for me.

  • My dog Ulan, we picked him up from Denmark om december 22nd 5 years ago. It was an 8 hour drive. I just moved in with my soon to be husband and i really missed the dogs who stayed with my mom, so they surprides me with our boy ulan, he was 1 and a half years old when i got him and the next spring he gave me the greatest gift, a litter of puppies from Dolly (who stayed with my mom) and I had to keep one of them. A year later we also had a litter from ulan and lola, so now I have ulan, and a baby from dolly and a baby from Lola. Ulan is the gift that keeps giving :)

    A holiday gift that was much-appreciated was the two books (One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera) I gave to my friend. He loves all the books written by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. He told me that he even asked his students to read these books and submit critiques or reviews.

  • carolina says:

    my boyfriend gave me a two day holiday package in a spa in the mountains where you can swim in hot water and outside is like 0c°!!

  • Altea says:

    I can’t think of a favorite xmas gift but my favorite thing is my mum turning everything into gifts around christmas.
    There’s usually one or two “big” gifts, but all the other things that I needed and she would have bought me anyway become gifts as well.
    Lipbalms, pajamas, socks, anything just ends up under the tree in a giftbox.
    It makes me feel pampered. Plus it gives me the excitement of opening many little boxes instead of just one. It’s much more fun.

    My favorite Christmas present was my leather boots. I had been dying for it for months at that point and it was a great surprise!

  • Jean says:

    Right before I went off to college, I went on a shopping spree at TJ Maxx and my mom paid for it! I got a whole new wardrobe for about 200 dollars, and I wore it throughout college. I love shopping at discount stores so I’ve had more gifts like that afterward too. :-)
