This week’s post involves gifts again. The best gift I’ve ever given to someone else.
Here’s the thing…I don’t know which gifts have touched someone so much they would say it was the best. I’ve tried to give really cool gifts or things I’ve made myself. That’s important. I want the gifts to be unique.
So what’s the best gift I’ve ever given someone else… It would have to be the dog tags I had made for my DH. He wanted to be in the military, but his eyesight isn’t good enough and he had asthma as a child, so he wasn’t permitted to join as a pilot. That stinks, but it happens. I’d gone to our local aviation museum and they will make dog tags for you. Probably a lot like the Smithsonian, but by the time I got to the kiosk, they were done for the day and I never found out. So I had a dog tag made for DH that he could wear with the one that belonged to his grandfather, who served in WWII.
When I gave him the tag, he cried. He put it right on and only takes it off when he’s working with his tools so he doesn’t get it tangled in the tools. \
That would be the best gift I’ve ever given.
What about you? What’s the best gift you’ve ever given anyone else? I’d love to know.
