I have had so many lovely surprises over the years - very hard to pick one.  My husband gave a strand of pearls and a gold necklace - loved that!  My daughter (in her 20's) handmade lovely cards for me for several years.  Those are on my fire escape list and I have them displayed in an open frame.  My sister bought me a set of old fireking one year and a DVD of all our childhood pictures.  My father and mother gave me some very precious things over the years.  Brings back special memories of the giver....

The best gift I've ever gotten was when my dad passed away they did a 21 gun salute as he was a retired Navy chief... While they were playing 'taps' the officer went to present my older brother (a retired Navy commander) with the flag, which is custom for the handing down... And, my brother moved aside gesturing them to present it to me. (I am the only girl and youngest of four older brothers). For once in my entire life, I felt special that all my brothers would want me to have my dads flag that was on honor of him... That same brother had a flag holder made with my fathers military rank engraved on the glass. It is very Very special to me.

My kids are definitely my greatest gifts as they are absolutely imperfectly perfect.  I also have to say that the other best gift I ever got was meeting my husband.  I met him through a chat site in November of 1999, and we met face to face for the first time that December.  The reason I consider him my best gift is he helped me heal from a very nasty divorce with a lot of patience and understanding.  He also helped get past my negative feelings of my birthday which falls in December as well as Christmas.  I thank God every day I met him.

... My husband. Without question. 


For material things, , when my younger daughter was in college, she made me a little wooden box wth a cat face, Mom, and hearts on it. I treasure it.
