Anyhow, yeah, I don't have a guest post, but seeing as how I'm attempting to find the perfect gift for a slew of family members (just to give you an idea, we have a dozen nieces and nephews--just on my husband's side who we try to get a Christmas gift for...um, yeah, that's a challenge and a half!), I started thinking about some of the favorite gifts I've given over the years. There's something that's so fun about finding that *perfect* something that totally warms the heart of the receiver.

It's so easy to forget the spirit of the season with trying to shop and travel and deal with the other stresses (like finals... :).

So, what's your favorite gift you've ever given?
