    Trinkets In the Mail

    I love sending little trinkets in the mail. I'm the type of person who doesn't wait for a special occasion to give a gift. If I'm out and see something that I know someone will like, I buy it and send it to them. The other day, I was in a drug store picking up a prescription, and...

    The Perfect Gift to Beat the Cold & Flu Season Blues

    While caring for my sick nephew last week, I noticed that while at home from school the entire week, he kept complaining about being bored, in addition to not feeling well. So, I decided I would get him some get-well-soon goodies. I gave him a gift basket filled with chicken...

    Home Made

    Usually my gifts are home made, a card, a drawing, a poem, cookies. Funny enough it isn't to see how they like it... I think it is more selfish a reason... It makes me feel good that I could brighten their day.

    It's Part of My Personality

    I guess little things I do for people really mean alot to them. I love doing it, and if it's something that will make them smile then it makes my day.

    Just Because...

    When it comes to gifts...I'm the kind of individual who tends to enjoy giving way more than receiving. The reason I'm like this is because I get so much joy out of watching someone special in my life open a gift that I have taken the time and effort to make...or even to buy...

    Simple Little Things

    I don't think of myself as thoughtful. I just love giving simple little things to people I care about. Sometimes it may cost a bit but I don't care. If I see something nice and it reminds me of this certain special person, I would go buy it as soon as I could. My being impulsive...

    Ja X Zwei

    I like randomly sending gifts to my friends. Usually something I have baked but sometimes I send other things, like triangles. Everyone needs to learn how to play at least one instrument, eh?

    From the Heart Is What Matters

    I love to suprise people with little gifts. They're never expensive, and are often not even bought. I've found that it means a lot more to people, including myself, when it comes from the heart. A sweet love letter or poem, taking time to do something for them they hate to do...

    Little Gifts

    When it comes to Birthday's and Christmas, I never know what to buy a person unless they tell me what they like and want.  In the other hand, I like spoiling people with little gifts, it doesn't mean it has to be something huge or expensive, an example, like a card, or box...

    Gifts

    Gifts are funny things, they sort of seem to follow the pattern of love itself. There seem to be tons of reasons for giving gifts and, all in all, I think it’s much harder to properly receive a gift than it is to give one, similar to love. The ability to properly receive and...

    For You

    When I spot somenthing small that makes me think of someone I always buy it. It is fun to surprize people just for nothing, and sometimes I think it means more than a huge gift that you are obligated to buy.
