Last week you told us about the most memorable gift you’ve ever given. But let’s face it—getting gifts can be a lot of fun too! When someone has contemplated, deliberated, and reflected on a gift just for you, it shows. And it’s such a delightful surprise! That leads us to this week’s question:

What’s the most memorable gift you’ve ever received?

Post your answer in the comments before noon (PST) on Monday, December 31 (two weeks this time!), for your chance to win. The winning comment will be posted on Wednesday, January 2, along with the next question.

Last week’s question was, “What is the most memorable gift you’ve ever given?” Here’s the winning response:

“One year we decided that we would all buy each other ‘second hand’ gifts. The rule was that it be used in some way. We all hunted at the Goodwill, Salvation Army, or garage sales for the perfect gifts. They were the only gifts we could open on Christmas Eve. I found my daughter a mug from the 1939 World’s Fair with her name on it. I found a shirt for my son with a Tallahassee team logo (Tallahassee is far from Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania!). My daughter bought my husband an oversized Mickey Mouse watch complete with band that hung on the wall. There were ooohs and ahhhs all evening. Many times we heard ‘where in the world did you find that???’ It was probably the best Christmas ever, certainly the most fun!”

Last week’s winning comment was written by Elaine. Congratulations, Elaine—look for an email about how to get your free eBook.
