Wrapped up with the Alice in Wonderland book Jonathan gave me for Christmas was a bag of black licorice.
I love opening up gifts that are bought specifically with me in mind. Lewis Carroll and licorice isn't a combo you could throw in a gift bag and give to just anyone, ya know?
One year he wrapped Ferrerro Rocher candy with The Mamas and The Papas Greatest Hits CD. Perfect combo of listening enjoyment and snacking satisfaction.
Go ahead and comment and tell me about a thoughtful gift you've been given. I want some of that "ahhh....that's so sweet" feeling happening at Lost in Laundry land today. School is back in session today...life is back to the normal routine...and I need something to distract me from the piles of dirty clothes waiting to be dealt with.
I love black licorice. Dan...not so much. I got a big box of good n plenty in my stocking for Christmas. Now the snobbish reading of classic books, I can't go with you there. Why do I always seem to draw friends to me that are this way? It never fails.
I've been thinking about your request. Sadly, Blake and I haven't bought eachother Christmas gifts in a few years! (not much left after buying for everyone else) I do have some really nice artwork he's done for me though for birthday's and anniversaries. I finally had one framed this year with some Christmas money. I'll have to take a picture for ya!
Most definitely, the most thoughtful gift I ever received was for my 30th birthday from my husband. He sent my best friend to Japan for a whole week to celebrate with me and show her the country that has become my adored home now. One of the best weeks of my life.
