I gave my granson a $500 desk for his 18th birthday and never got so much as a hug yet alone thank you.
I gave my parents a cruise for their 50th anniversary...on the other hand, THEY gave me the college education that made it possible for me to earn enough money to do that, so...
I've given a gift that no amount of money can cover...I wouldn't take money for this gift.<br />
The most expensive gift I've received? A priceless gift that I enjoy each day...my boys.
I bought my son a tricked out Playstation 3 with all the accessories and a pretty good selection of games for his birthday. Then Playstation 4 came out...
I got a beautiful engagement ring ( I'm not sure if that's a gift.) with three pretty large diamonds. He stole it off of my finger in the middle of the night and pawned it for drugs. I can only laugh about it today.
