Earlier this month Frisky staffers shared the stories of the worst gifts we’ve ever received. When we read the horrifying/hilarious bad gift stories from our readers, we had to share those too. But what about the best gifts we’ve ever received? I’ll never forget one birthday when I was in high school–my brother secretly asked all my friends, family, and teachers to write notes to me and then stapled them all together in a little book titled “Why We Love Winona.” So awesome. A non-nostalgic close second? The thermal pants my aunt got me for Christmas last year. Whenever I wear them (pretty much every night) I feel cozy and grateful. Read on for a few stories from Frisky staffers, and please share your own best gift stories in the comments!
