One of the best gift I ever got as a child was a flashlight. A used flashlight.
My older brother said the best gift he ever got was a pencil sharpener. I could see why he said that but I think he denied it later.
Here’s what I have appreciated in gifts.
- Something I specifically asked for like a shirt or a football.
- Something I wasn’t expecting like a video game or my first cell phone.
- Something that was a thoughtful gesture like the piece of chocolate the girl who sat next to me in Elementary Algebra gave me.
