What was the favorite gift I have received? I honestly do not know......I like things that are a total surprise. Something you would like and would not buy for yourself.
At first we bought gifts for everyone in the family, that proved to be too expensive, especially with the addition of family members.
Then we tried a Christmas grab bag and that worked for a while, but also got too expensive. Now we just get little things. Last year I gave my sibs a copy of a picture my sister in law had taken of the six of us. Some times you will get pictures, ornaments or some tasty food item.
I think what I like the best is the company of my family and just getting together for dinner, and sharing the time.
