    Lightbulb The Gift Thread

    What were some of the best gifts you ever gave or have been given? It doesn't matter what it was - if it was a gift you still hold dear, tell about it here. It could be a toy from your childhood, a decorative or practical household item, hubcaps for your car or the car itself - tell us why it meant something to you.

    Also, talk about what you'd like to receive this holiday season, as well as what you plan on giving to your nearest and dearest. Be it extravagant or humble, it doesn't matter - after all, it's the thought that counts. The size of the gift matters far less than the size of the heart that gives it. (you can use that, I just made it up)

    One of my very best gifts (received) would have to be my subscription to National Geographic magazine. A subscription is great because it's the gift that keeps on giving, 12 months of the year. And Nat Geo brings you corners of the globe you might otherwise never consider.

    This year, I'm giving books. Lots of books. Mostly arty coffee table style books. And I got my mum tickets to go see Driving Miss Daisy with Angela Lansbury and James Earl Jones. Because what oldie doesn't want to see Darth Vader in Murder She Wrote?

    This year I plan on doing something for my girlfriend. I promised her a Backstreet Boys tshirt so that's part one I'm getting her that (yeah I'm the one that got her hooked on Backstreet Boys haha) and I'm also going to give her a stuffed animal and a journal in which I will for a week do some small sacrifices for her and prayers. We're both pretty religious and I think it'll be a very meaningful present to her. My two best friends are getting bottles of liquor because I can!

    Best present I ever received though was totally a pair of socks!!!!! lol jk uh I guess it'll be a scooter I got like 12 years ago. It was when Scooters were getting cool and everyone had one and my mom got me one.

    Small Steps by Louis Sachar. If you read holes you will enjoy it. Our The Graveyard Book. And definitely a few Stephen King books such as Christine or IT. Not sure what books you prefer but these are a few of my favorites.

    It depends on what your likes are but if your into fantasy you should look up the Eragon series by Christopher Paolini especially if you like lord of the rings. On a side note even though its an old series Animorphs is still one of the best series I've ever read
    When the Devil is to busy
    And Death's a bit to much
    They call on me by name you see, for my special touch

    To the gentleman I'm Ms. Forture
    To the ladies I'm Sir Prize
    But call me by any name, any way it's all the same

    You'll have to hit ebay since they stopped printing new copies a few years ago, my set cost about 150.00 but it had every book in the series including the side chronicle stories
