This is a difficult question for me. I don’t receive many gifts. Usually only on Christmas and even then not very often.
My ex-husband did gift me with all 5 seasons plus all of the movies of Babylon 5 a few months back, but they had previously been gifts I’d given him. Still, it was lovely since he knows how much I love that show.
His sister, Thea, gifted me with a lovely book a while back, but I haven’t had time to read it yet.
My friend, Lisa, gifted me with an adult coloring book for Christmas. It was a lovely idea, but I haven’t had time to color recently.
I am enjoying the gift of friendship from Annette, my newest friend. She is a lovely woman and we have so much in common.
As for gifts I’ve given… well, I don’t give gifts often anymore either. The last one I recall giving was a small pendant of a butterfly to my friend Lisa for her birthday back in November.
Oh, I gave my grand-nieces some lovely stones on their last visit and their mom, my niece, a beautiful black shirt with lace.
I am on such a tight budget these days that I cannot really afford to give presents. I do try to give my time more often to people now than I have in years past.
Thank you, Kate for another thought provoking question!
