ThumbKins Poster sunshine and charcoal

{shop :: Facebook}

As I’ve gotten older, I have started working really hard on my gift giving. I no longer buy something just to do it. I want the gift to have meaning, I want it to be unique, and I want it to be well designed/crafted. Lucky for me, I have the amazing community of vendors here at The Bright Side Project to assist in all my gift-giving endeavors.

Amie Jones of Flutterbye Prints creates gorgeous, unique, and personalized prints that marry love and design in a way that no one else does. The custom Chalkboard Thumbprint Poster is one of the most ingenious and beautiful things I have come across in a long time and I’m thinking this might make a wonderful anniversary present for my husband. (Although, who are we kidding? It’s really for me.) There are also amazing silhouette portraits, cards, and printables so that you can find something for everyone. (Although, who are we kidding? It’s really for you.) It’s okay. We, the community support you. And Flutterbye Prints is there to help.

    On my 50tn bd a dear friend gave me a Brighton clock in the shape of a heart – I LOVE it but loved the note she wrote more.  It’s been 12 years and whenever I look at the clock I think of her

    A 1963 Plymouth Newport with push button transmission and red leather interior and a steering wheel 13″ across!! I was so surprised and my husband had picked up a job that he did on the side and I didn’t even know about it so it wouldn’t cost anything out of our regular household budget.  His thoughtfulness about that was almost as special as the gift itself.

    I was having a very (VERY) hard time with my pregnancy last year and every day was absolute drudgery. My husband came home with a new laptop for me one day and it seemed to take my mind off the nausea and constant pain. It was a very sweet gift.

    My very best gift, is my son, after a few years of icky drugs, I gave up. 
    Then one day I just knew I was pregnant, 13 tests later, yes 13, all negative, I thought it was just the wanting if ine that made me feel like I was pregnant. Then one day boom a test was positive, I was pregnant and soooo excited! He arrived the following April and life has never been better!!

    This is a hard question.  I mean HARD!  When I read it, I took a survey in my house to try to find an answer.  (My 5 year daughter immediately said, “My mommy!” which made me smile since we had been disagreeing about her helping with chores not 10 minutes ago. What a cupcake! 🙂 )  

    I guess that I would have to say the best “gift” I’ve ever gotten is the gift of gratitude.  It’s what allows me hope and life and joy every day.  I think it’s a “gift” because it was something that came to me – and not easily.  I had a lot of difficulty and trauma and almost died twice (I coded)…and what came out of that was a new way of living.  When I was younger, I took everything for granted.  And now I don’t.  And that, to me, has been the biggest gift ever.  It wasn’t something I could make up, or do myself, but something that flew in on the wings of suffering.  I’m not sorry I’ve had some hard things in my life.  It’s made me full of something new and beautiful.

    A long weekend to Phoenix (from Massachusetts) last fall for my birthday, given by my daughter. She and I and a friend whose daughter also gave the trip to her mother for her birthday went together.

    My husband wrote me a letter last valentines day that told me why he loves me. He’s not one to be sentimental or particularly expressive, but he knows that I need beautiful, meaningful words from those I love and I hold that letter as a treasure that I will look back and read over and over.

    My dad gave my husband a trip to Paris for Christmas one year.  I love my husband and that city. Best gift ever.

    I could give a flowery answer all “the gift of a smile from a friend when I was having a bad day” but if we’re being TOTALLY HONEST? I tell my husband all of the time that the best gift he ever gave me (other than, obviously, agreeing to hitch his life to mine, heh) is a Slanket. If you’re unfamiliar with the Slanket, it’s the ORIGINAL “blanket with sleeves” and the Snuggie is merely a cheap knock-off. I have a bit of a blanket problem, so it’s amazing he’d contribute to it anyway, but the Slanket has a permanent place on my corner of the couch. I’m not exaggerating to say I use it 75% of the year, because it’s so cuddly and cozy. If the AC is on, the Slanket is over my knees in the evening when we watch TV. I’ve brought it out to fire circles for extra warmth and cuddled underneath it with my husband when the weather outside was ridiculously cold. It’s super-long with hand AND foot pockets, and is made out of the snuggliest fabric. It might be dumb to say, but it really is the best physical gift I’ve ever received.

    My engagement ring is made from a diamond given to my husband by his late grandfather, who was a jeweler. It’s tiny and not flashy but I’m happy to have something so meaningful to my husband and it feels so special to wear something someone I never met picked out for his beloved grandson.

    The best gift I have ever gotten was that my dad secretly arranged and flew my best friend from college to celebrate my 30th birthday with me. It was such a surprise and time with her was better than any gift I would have ever thought to ask for.

    The best gift I have ever been given was last Christmas when my eldest daughter came home for Christmas break from university and did all the Christmas baking for me because I was too tired since I was having chemo. Luckily it did not affect my taste buds so I was the official taste tester.

    On my 18th birthday, my best friends in college pooled their cash together and bought me a set of the most beautiful hardbound books of Haiku. This was my first introduction to the minimalist poetry and I was hooked. The books were covered in illustrations of cherry blossoms and scraggly trees. I’ve now been writing haiku for 20 years. Those books were the gift that keep on giving 🙂

    When my mom passed away I was living pay check to pay check. I needed to take time off to grieve, support my family and make funeral arrangements. I was venting to my girl friends about the stress and later on they all grouped together and gave me a card full of cash to help me pay the bills. I felt so loved at that moment. My girls knew I needed to have the everyday stresses taken away so that I could allow myself to grieve.

    One year my kids made Christmas ornaments for their grandparents.  To this day, they still put it up on their tree during the holiday season.  Whenever we visit them over the holidays, my kids are proud of what they made.
