Tuesday Toss Up - The One About Gifts

Okay, I'm not a superficial person, and I seriously do believe that its the thought that counts in gift-giving. A well-meant card is better than a begrudged gift, but I must share about a gift that I got from my sister and brother-in-law.
They gave me an XM radio for my birthday. They gave me the gift of constant song with no commercials! Heavenly, just heavenly!
So my toss-up question to you today is this. What is the best birthday present you can remember? Expensive or cheap, it doesn't matter. Just the one that you liked the best. (The XM radio is not really the most sentimentally special gift I've ever gotten. It was just a gift I really appreciated this year!! So don't think I'm materialistic or anything!)

I have so many great birthday memories, I can't say what the best was. Once my Mom took me and some friends out and we did a girl's night out. That meant a lot to me!

Once my husband, while still dating, took me to a park and set up a table with a tablecloth and all. We had take out under the stars with candles and everything. I really love his romantic side!!

The best gift I've ever gotten wasn't for my birthday, but for my college graduation. It was my first chihuahua, Tzeitel.

You'll really enjoy your radio...no commercials...ahhh.

My favourite b-day gift was from my husband a couple of years ago when we were still dating. We used to spend hours on the phone talking, and I never knew that during those conversations he was making me this fabulous (large) drawing of Neunschwentein Castle! It hangs in our hallway now!
