What kind of gifts do you like to receive?

  1. As a collector of angels, cute little duckies, smilies, and candles, these are the things that make me smile the most. I long ago asked DH not to by me flowers but to add to these collections. They are forever, flowers die to soon. I am easy to buy for, money is not an issue, doesn't have to cost a lot. I especially love anything that has been hand made. What gifts make you the happiest when you receive them? Have a great day! Duckie

    i too, love things that are handmade-- a resident on the unit that i work on had been doing ceramics and made a little bear basket with a big heart on the side that says from the heart-- the night that she gave it to me i had dealt with a patient that had passed away-- it had been a rough night-- the patient was 47 years old-- i really cried and today it has a place of honor on my desk beside my computer

    I like flowers and plants that flower. Buy me flowers and you will have a friend for life! Hate practical things though.

    DH says I'm too sensible. I always ask for something practical when he wants to know what I want for any occasion.

    I also love anything that my children make for me.

    Money is always good my kids when they were little started buying me frogs , so now i have a collection of nursing frogs, really cute and i love candles. But one of the most precious things i have received is poems from different pt's and family members.

    I always go back to read them and they always bring a smile to me and happy tears.

    You are so sweet warrior woman:kiss

    I am a flower person, when I come home from work(I work in another town so I'm gone three days a week) it is not unusual for my hubby to have a flower arrangement waiting for me. Makes me feel like a million bucks. I love the thought he was thinking about me, and it makes my house smell soooo good. I have the bessstessss husband ever.

    Feel free to send me a gift certificate to amazon.com where I can buy CDs and books that I want. That's my favorite gift now.

    I'm not hard to please and told DH not to buy me anything that plugs in. Battery operated? Well, not a problem!
