Today’s discuss is pretty easy: What’s the best present anyone has ever given you? And I’m not talking about love, or an engagement ring, or a child, or a good result on your cancer screening. I’m talking about a tangible gift that you can buy or a gift that you can make. Because the best gift ideas come from knowing what gifts other people enjoyed.
So what’s the best gift I’ve ever gotten? My first instinct is my Clarisonic. Really, I love that thing. But upon further reflection, I would say that it’s the Wii that my younger brother bought me for Christmas last year.
My brother had had a hard couple of years, but he had just gotten a new, good-paying job and was really turning it around. So when I opened the box and saw that he’d bought me a Wii, I was blown away. I really wanted one, but didn’t think anyone would spend that kind of coin on little old me. Plus, I think it made him really proud that he could afford to buy it for me, so that was nice too.
