The best gift I ever received was an act of love that led to changing the outcome of my life forever. I never been the same since. He saved me out of life that was going downhill. He is in the life changing business and gave up all he had for me. He let me know how much He loved me and how valueable He considers me. He is very supportive and is always right there with me. He desires to spend time with me and even prays for me. He's wonderful. He's a gift from God.

I thought about this for about 15 minutes. Thought back to all my old gifts that I remembered and all my birthday parties and then I figured it out. The best gift I have ever gotten is my family and friends. No matter how many things I have gotten weither it is a A huge surround sound game room from my dad or a stuffed animal from my friend. Those don't usually stick around you all your life but your family and friends do. So the best gift I have gotten is being with them.

I thought about how I would answer this question for 2 days because I have received so many great things in my life. Besides my husband and children there is one thing that I will always remember receiving. I was about 10 years old and had lived on the same street for about 8 of those years. A little boy named Eric lived down the street and he was almost a year older than myself. We walked to and from school together everyday. We played after school together everyday and so I guess you could say he was my best friend. One evening my mother started packing our things and told me that she was leaving her husband. The whole neighbourhood was outside watching the commotion. Right when we were about to leave Eric was coming home from baseball practice and saw what was going on. He came running down the street and asked what was happening. I exlpained and told him I didn't know if we would ever come back. He handed my his baseball mit and told me to sleep with it under my pillow every night and that way he would now that I was alive. We hugged and then I left. I slept with the mit under my pillow until I graduated high school and in a weird way felt safe with it there. I always wondered what happened to him. I don't think I have received anything that compares to that. Thanks Eric!

I came from a family of 11 and when I was young around 10 or so my older sister sent me a birthday card of a train and it had money on the wheels .I think it was about $2.00 I can't remember getting anything for my birthday and I thought this was the greatest thing.I have never forgotten that day and it just sticks in my memory.I am a grown woman now and my sister is no longer living.But I will always remember her for that reason.

It may sound a bit bleak but the best gift I ever got was about 6 years ago. Its a book called lost lives. It documents all the stories behind each and every person who died during the troubles in northern Ireland. I have lost so many friends and neighbours that I keep it as a sort of memorial. It has been borrowed from me on countless occasions. In fact only recently my son met a girl who's brother was shot dead. His story is in it. Because we are only 6 small counties, 30 years of strife has touched us all and this book in a way shows the futility of it all. I wouldn't part with it.

Well I don't consider relationships as gifts..but if I did I would agree that Jesus my husband and my children take priority.. If you are asking about an actual thing I was given it would be a top of the line sewing machine that my husband bought for me many many years ago when money was tight and He decided to sell a car and get a loan to pay for it because he had every confidence that I would earn back every dime he paid. It was true. Knowing that he believed in me that much drove me to perfect the skill, sell things I made, even teach others to sew, and has given me A life long joy in creating and even sewing for charity. In the same vein He was given a guitar at 18 and opportunities to learn the music skills. It has been the same type of gift: A confidence builder, a creative outlet, a door opener in social settings, a therapeutic hobby, and a tool to bring joy in churches or hospitals or retirement homes. So I would say if you want to give a gift that lasts find out about the persons desires and give them a quality

LIFE- I was given,blessed,lucked out or how ever someone would look at it -In 1967 I was 8 years old. I had a heart murmer? I was the 16th kid in the Dayton Ohio area to have open heart. They repaired the hole. 48 years later I am able to say ""Thank you Lord -You gave me the gift of life.""
Writing this made me realize, "OH how many times I have taken
this special LIFE for granted
THANK YOU adad1122 , for reminding me to be more grateful.
Live it -love it and then laugh:)
LIFE is soooo short.

How amazing! So many of the medical procedures today are taken for granted, and they haven't been used very long! What an amazing gift -- you, your family, and the surgeons are so courageous!!

An unknown Doctor to me, directed the emergency room staff to continue to use the defribulator,
They did for a total of seven times, over the time span of four minutes. He stated "He is too young to let go"! I was content to be in the state I was at. It was later with reflection, I would be missing how the children would be establishing their lives. As I answered my oldest son's question "How was it?" and I mentioned in addition to my vivid positive description, "and your mother wasn't there"! She was right behind him!

My daughter! It was hard for my husband & I to conceive. When I became pregnant I was told every other week that I might miscarry!
So finally when we had her & she looked in our eyes, I thought this is what life is all about! Love, Hope, Happiness, Togetherness, all of these are gifts I received with just that look from her!

When I was in 4th grade, I fell in love with The Babysitters' Club books, and I decided I wanted to be a writer. I still get teary when I think about my daddy believing in me so much that he got his nerdy little daughter a typewriter instead of a normal gift, like a bike or VCR or Nintendo. I used the typewriter until college when I finally had to join the tech revolution and get a computer.

When I was about 10, I wanted a real princess outfit. My parents were divorced. My Mom went to a thrift store, bought a gold ballgown, and had it cut down to size. She got me a hat wig [60's] and a tiara from the five and dime, she got gold high heels that fit me.
That was the very best gift, I thought no-one would recognize me!

Well it was early in the morning.
I awoke to see the shining sun glistening into my bedroom.
As I roll over I noticed something different.
It was a bicycle.
This made me extremely happy because my family is not the richest family but even so, they bought this expensive bicycle that I have been wanting for the past 4 months.
I dreamt about this bicycle every night.
So if you think about it, it was a dream come true

My god, how patronising can you get. I have lots of friends, many are very close to me, but by no means are they the best gift I ever received, people aren't gifts but the love that they give you are, I wake up every morning and thank the world that I met my girlfriend but I'm not going to patronise anybody who hasn't found love yet because that is part of life, they will someday and don't deserve to be trodden on by someone saying 'Up yours World, I've got something you don't have'.

Hi,

The best gift of my life I received is from my papa. Of course, family gifts are always memorable. It was a collage of my family photographs. I just love it always. Yes, I received one more gift in the office from the side of my boss for doing the best work in the company. It was a big project and I was team head for this project. After completing the project successfully he calls me and said that you did excellent work, praise for my work and give me a bonus check for my work. It is the best gift in my life that is getting in my professional life.
On those days, Diwali is near so, and it is natural to distribute gifts for Diwali to employees then I get also gifts for Diwali and also get more wishes because of some special work. It is unforgettable for me.

I have it on my study table makes me memorise all those golden days in my heart. Perfume for men is the best corporate gift to be given to a person into official work.

Hello!
I will have to admit that I do not normally accept gifts from anyone, but
myself! However, it’s true that the diamond and gold earring that my wife gave
me when I first had my piercing done was a pretty nice one. The tattoo she got
me for my 28th birthday is also memorable. She is the only one who
can possibly get my gifts right!
