What’s the best present you’ve ever received that was handmade by the giver, not store-bought? Tell us what made it so special.
Many, many moons ago, I received a poetry book from an ex-boyfriend. The poetry book wasn’t the best present. It was a fine gift – just not the special part. Inside of the book was a letter written by the ex-boyfriend. It was a lovely letter. He wished me the best, even though we weren’t together. He was a kind person, unlike some of the other ex’s that I’ve discussed.
Over the course of several years, I read it about a million times. I kept it for a long time.
Truth be told, I might still have it somewhere hiding in a poetry book.
