When you really think about it, we don’t really remember the gifts that are given to us on our birthdays. Of course, the bigger, more expensive gifts normally stand out but in the grand scheme of things, years pass and those materialistic items are forgotten. Looking back, there is truly only one birthday gift that is really sown into my mind and I wanted to share it with y’all!
For my 18th birthday, my parents gifted me the beautiful ring that my dad gave my mom on their one year dating anniversary. In the birthday card, they wrote that they gave me the ring so that I know both of their hearts are always with me wherever I may go. This really meant a lot to me, and it means even more now that I no longer am living at home. I used to wear the ring constantly and I would never take it off.
Eventually, the band split in the back so I had to stop wearing it. I plan to hopefully get it fixed soon so that I am able to wear it again.
I thought this was such a great idea for a gift. It was super meaningful to me and I am very thankful that my parents held on to it long enough to be able to gift it to me almost 21 years later. I’m also thankful that my mom and I have the same ring size, lol!
If I ever receive something similar in my future, I will totally “steal” their idea and re-gift to my future children (fingers crossed)!
What was your most memorable birthday gift?
