Today I was able to spend some time with close friends of my family’s My Mom’s best friend came over with her two little girls (who are two of the most precious girls I have ever met) for a visit. It was so nice to see the three of them as it has been two years since our last visit!
Over the few hours we visited, we were able to catch up and laugh a lot.
At the end of the visit, I received a gift that I feel as though I have to share with all of you because it is the most thoughtful gift I have ever received.
Personally, I think Christmas does not need to include presents…
If I were able to come home and just spend time with my family for Christmas without any presents being given to me at all, I would be totally cool with that. However, it seems as though that never happens around here…
So, when I shop for Christmas presents I make sure to put a lot of thought into each gift before I purchase it because it is truly the thought that counts. I know, cliché – right? But honestly, have you ever received a present that struck you in a way that you knew so much thought went into it?
If yes, aren’t those the best gifts you have ever received?
Well, today I received the most thoughtful gift from my Mom’s long-time best friend (who I consider to be a close friend of mine, as well)
A Terry’s chocolate orange.
Even more so.
To some of you this may seem to be just a chocolate, but to me – I know the meaning behind it all…
You see, my Mom’s friend reads my blog regularly which I find very touching and truly special. And while reading my blog, she recognized my love for DAVIDsTEA, especially the Terry’s chocolate orange flavoured tea that just came out in stores this Christmas called “Christmas Treat” which brought her to buy this particular present for me
The most thoughtful present that I have ever received.
This simple, but oh so meaningful, gift of chocolate put a smile on my face the entire day. I couldn’t stop blabbing to my Mom about how thoughtful it was of her. First of all, I think it is just amazing that she actually takes time out her day to read my little blog when she is already so busy with her two little girls. And second of all, to think of getting me a Terry’s chocolate orange because she knows how much I love the flavour all because of the tea I drink!? Extremely thoughtful.
What was the most thoughtful gift you have ever received?
Do you put a lot of thought into the gifts you buy?
