    What is the best gift you have ever received from a spouse or someone you dated?

    As for me, I've been the guy to give things.

    This one time though, I was sitting at work. A delivery man came inside my place of biz. In his hand he had this fruit in the shape of flowers. On top there was a balloon that said " I love you"

    I said "wow isn't this cool, who is it for" the guy says my name.

    I was like "whaaaat, are you sure"

    I opened the card and it was from someone really special. In front of everyone tears came down my eyes. Within two seconds I start crying.

    I'm not one to cry unless I'm really hurt or really moved.

    Lol my co workers where just staring at me like they just saw the second coming of jesus. (yeah I guess I don't look the type to cry)
    Of course they began to get all teary eyed and two hug me.

    No one has ever givin me anything, this was so unexpected. I didn't know how to react. Even though the relationship ended horribly, I still have the "I love you" balloon. Even though It's all our of air, I can't help but keep it close to me.

    Last Christmas my boyfriend surprised me with a new Chanel wallet. I was really impressed and didn't expect anything more. We agreed that we wouldn't buy anything else for each other.
    Then on Christmas morning I woke up with a big surprise box sitting beside me. I open it and was a big box of dishes. I was so happy because I always love getting stuff for around the house.
    Then when I opened it there was another black box marked CHANEL.
    It was the new belt that I wanted. It will always be special to me. That's the one clothing item I don't lend out to anyone.

    wow, debussy, where'd u find him? i want one! haha

    i'd say the best i've thing i've gotten was a silver and gold hand-made ring by John Hardy for Xmas... he was SO excited about it and hinted at it with this twinkle in his eyes for months before hand- i figured out it was jewelry (my favorite thing) but had no idea what... he explained when i opened the box that he liked its understated complexity, and the way the inside of it is all intricately carved and patterned, because it reminded him of ME :p it was so sweet and thoughtful- a perfect gift- small, shiny, valuable (an investment in me), and thoughtful... the best part of it was the emotion behind it

    ..which in turn inspired me to give back in ways i probably shouldn't write in here haha ;)

    The best gift I've ever recieved was from a guy who cut out his mother's heart served it to me medium rare. He fed me every bite; such a romantic.

    Best gift I ever got was life. When my mom was 6 months pregnant with me the doctor tried to convince her to have an abortion because her pregnancy was "unhealthy". She told him to fuck off and that we're in it together. =) awwwwwwwww

    When we went to the Grand Canyon, I bought a t-shirt but it was too small. Without me knowing it, he called the gift shop there and ordered me a new one and gave it to me as a Christmas present.

    When I was 18, had a crush on my straight roommate in college. One night, found out someone had crashed into my car in the parking lot - he yelled out to no one that he'd beat up whoever did it. *sigh* Such a man.

    Also... being given a ticket to Hawaii for my bday, with most of the trip planned out; he got there a day before I did, and my first night there I walked into our hotel room pretty much right on the water's edge, and found candles lit, the balcony door open to the sound of waves crashing, and a bunch of plumeria fleurs spread all around the room... great start to a great trip. icon_smile.gif

    btw - some touching and humanizing stories above; thanks for sharing. icon_smile.gif

    The best gift that I ever got was from my best friend. She and her partner invited me and my now-ex-partner on a skiing trip to Breckenridge, CO. They had booked and paid for everything in advance, and we were to settle up our share when we got there. We made it there, got into the condo, and that's when they sprung it on us. They wanted no money from us.
    She wanted to thank me for going thru one of the most difficult times of her life with her. She told me that if I had not been there, that she would have committed suicide. We had never really talked about that time in depth, only a passing comment if it related to something else. I knew it was a bad time for her but had no clue that she had ever contemplated suicide.
    We had an amazing time on that trip! But my gift wasn't the trip, but the fact that I STILL had my best friend.
    If you look at my profile pix, she is the one with big boobs that I'm hiding under!!!

    This reminds me of a time when my co-workers gave me a gift when I was at an all-time low in my life. I was very depressed as my marriage had failed I had sent my three kids to stay with my parents for a few months until I pulled myself back together and figure out how to proceed with life...long story.... anyway... everyone knew that I played piano to calm myself. They bought me a music box of a spun glass piano on top of a mirror base. When I wound it up and it started palying I set it down and ran away.....went to hide in the bathroom crying. lol. I will always remember that.

    I guess the best haven't been the most extravagant.

    A lad I was dating sent a big bunch of balloons to my office for my birthday - I was absolutely surprised and, as my grandmother would say, tickled.

    I have friends who have twice given me big birthday weekends in the country, with lots of friends. Very special to me.

    The last birthday I spent with my ex he took me to The Light in The Piazza on B'way, and as that was already significant to us both, it might be my favorite. Unfortunately I was too dim to see the light, and let him go 3 months later!

    My boyfriend had a dozen long stemmed roses delivered to my office, my co-workers were jealous. Of course, I was grateful and touched by boyfriend's gift. But most of all, I LOVED getting some of my co-workers jealous!icon_twisted.gif

    I bought my boyfriend a Wii for he wanted one and importantly, wanted us to play games together. But its sitting there, gathering dust... bastard.
