What is the best gift that you ever received?
Shopping during YuleTide can make you crazy and there are some great gifts out there without a doubt. But not all of our most treasured gifts were found in a store. What gift came at just the right time for you? Which one-physical, spiritual or a special memory-do you treasure the most? What special gift are you hoping to give to someone this year?

| What Is My Most Treasured Gift? My Friend Bunny Gave Me A... ||Nov 27th. at 3:39:22 am UTC|

What is my most treasured gift? My friend Bunny gave me a plaque of the Desederata that she had bought sometime back in the sixties. She was someone I had met online and had chatted with extensively and then we talked on the phone a couple of times. I guess it means so much to me because in all the years she'd had it, so she told me, it had hung over her desk and she had used it as guidepost in her life for around 25-30 years. Then out of the blue she sent it to me.
What special gift would I like to give to someone this year? Peace. Stability. But mostly peace.
| The Best Non-material Gift I Have Ever Gotten Has To Be My... ||Nov 27th. at 12:07:58 am UTC|

The best non-material gift i have ever gotten has to be my boyfriend (i know, major cheeze) but he came into my life right around yuletide last year, and even though we didn't start dating until mid-january, the ball got rolling around yule last year. He's everything I could ever want or need in someone, so much so that we've been together almost a year despite living several hundred miles apart, and only seeing each other an average of 2 days a month. He's the best friend of an adopted (by me) brother, and I love him dearly.
The best material gift I have ever recieved was last year's birthday gift from this boyfriend. Before we even started going out, (we just talked a lot) he sent me the 10th anniversary book of the Sandman by Neil Gaimon. If you haven't seen this book, at least find it and look through it. The illustrations were done by Yoshitaka Amano, and are stunning. It's a story of a kitsune and a monk, and how they fall in love and what happens to them because of it. This book means so much to me, words can't describe.
This year, we're giving ourselves a sort of three day vacation in New Orleans. It was supposed to be a job hunting trip for me, but since he's been there a few times, I enlisted him as tour guide. And I'm giving my family the gift of not working during my college break since it's probably going to be my last yule/christmas at home. Usually, I work every day except christmas at a local bakery, right up until Jan. 1, but this year, they're more important than the extra cash.
Love, luck, and lollipops,

I'm sure this is going to sound a bit cheesy, but the greatest gift that I have ever been given was given to me by a trio of very special people, who happen to be my best friends. They taught me (when I was convinced that nobody cared for me except my family, who I felt only cared because they were obligated to) that there really are wonderful, caring people out there in the world when I most needeed to learn this lesson. I hope that someday, I will be able to do the same thing for somebody, because I will always be thankful to those three friends.
The other gift I have in mind is material in form, but it has a great sentimental value. Shortly before my grandfather died three years ago, I visited him at his house one last time. We got to talking, and he gave me a small wooden box which had belonged to my grandmother, who died before I was born. In it were envelopes which had once contained letters which he wrote to her during the Second World War, a telegram that he sent her to tell her he was coming home when the war ended, and a small picture of her when she was in her twenties. These things are now very precious to me not only because they are rememberances of a grandmother who I never knew in this life, but because they were given to me by my grandfather who I loved (and still love) very, very much.
| My Most Treasured Gift Was Given To Me As A Christmas Present... ||Nov 26th. at 10:25:53 pm UTC|

My most treasured gift was given to me as a Christmas present 17 years ago. I was 2 and was finally civilized enough to be trusted around animals. Sleeping under the tree with a big red ribbon around her neck, was a black kitten with a white spot on her chest and the greenest eyes ever. Since that day, she has been my constant companion and familiar. Her unconditional love is without a doubt the best and most memorable present.
One day I hope to give my mother that same gift. Unconditional love, only in the form of a horse, seeing as how they're her passion.
