Christmas Question #6
My DH is the champion of thoughtfull gifts! I have a good reason to call him "my personal santa". If I say that I wish I had something, or point out something that I like, he will remember it when I have forgotten... so geneally speaking, all of the presents I receive from my DH are thoughtful (he's a romantic guy). I'm a very lucky woman.
The presents that most touched me as a kid were: a fairy tale book when I was six (that I have spent dozens of hours reading again and again), and a lion mom when I was 11, and I spent lots of hours cuddling it.
Also, two days ago, my friend Martine brought me a nice santa to hang in my tree (I love santas) and this was very thoughtful as she knows exactly what I do and don't like with santas...
It's always nice when you realize that some people care enough about you to remember things that you said, and use the information in time to please you...
As for purchased gifts, that would be something that I received just recently-- a hard-bound, color atlas of Medieval Europe. I had mentioned wanting something like that, but didn't even know if such a thing existed. BF immediately set about tracking something down, found the perfect thing and had it special ordered for me. It just happened to arrive shortly before Christmas.
