I'm not going to lie-I love getting gifts. There's something great about opening a present that makes me feel special. For me, that special feeling continues every time I use whatever gift I've received. I always think of the person who gave it to me and it puts a smile on my face. The wrapping might get thrown away, but the special feelings remain.

I've received countless homemade gifts from my daughter when she was little and an incredible CD of her singing now that she's grown. My husband surprised me with a special painting from an artist who meant a lot to us early in our marriage. Those early gifts gave me years of pleasure and I'm still using my recipe book, listening to my CD and gazing at my painting-truly gifts that keep on giving.
