Here are some stories shared by our readers about the most memorable gifts that they have ever received. Get the tissues out because this one’s sure to be a mush fest.
1. The Thoughtful
‘I have a really stressful job with usually 9 hour work days. I also have the added pressure of managing the house and taking care of the kids. For my birthday, my husband did the sweetest thing ever! He bought a vacation to Thailand for me and my sisters so that we could have a girl’s trip, catch up and unwind. It made me feel so appreciated and loved.’ – Relaxed Mom
2. The Brave
‘I’m a self-confessed adrenalin junkie, and my wife is the absolute opposite; I love to jump off things, she prefers to stay safely on land. On a long weekend, she booked us for a three-day getaway filled with all sorts of adventure sports. Rather than discouraging my passion, she chose not just to encourage but also put aside her fears and participate!’ – Thrill Seeker
3. The Kind
‘I love being pampered, but being in college, I don’t always have the luxury to indulge myself. For my birthday, my best friends all chipped in and gifted me the ombre hair highlight treatment I was lusting after, and that too at one of the best salons in Mumbai. It really made me feel special!’ – Hair Devil
4. The Generous
‘I’m always complaining about how I have nothing to wear. Well I’m a woman, so I’m allowed to. Instead of pointing out the abundance of outfits in my closet, my boyfriend very generously took me shopping and got me the dress & shoes that I’d been lusting after since a month.’ – Shopaholic
5. The Loving
‘I love to cook and I’m constantly on the hunt for new recipes, follow cooking shows religiously and try out any and all the restaurants that I can. My husband isn’t a foodie in particular, but indulged me with an amazing present on our anniversary. He booked us for a one on one cooking lesson with a celebrity chef! It was one of my favorite gifts ever!’ – Foodie
