12 Days of Christmas: Day 3

Meaningful/Best Gifts

I think I need to make this one about a couple people.  I have several people in my life who have given me amazing and meaningful gifts! 
Mom and Dad
The best gift they have ever given me has to be the cruise we took over Christmas in 2005 as a family.  It was awesome and we were able to make some fabulous memories together.  It was the first cruise I had been on and I'm glad I was able to experience it with my family =)
A close second would be the white gold earrings that I often wear.  They aren't quite hoops and are oblong in shape.  My sister had received some similar a year or so earlier and I LOVED them.  I was so excited to see it on Christmas morning the same year as the cruise.  I still wear them all the time -- they remind me of the cruise we left for that day =)
My very favorite gift that Jess has given me wasn't for Christmas, it was actually for my birthday.  She saved all the invitations from all the parties that were had leading up to the wedding and framed them for me.  I LOVE it -- I have it hanging in my craft room and it makes me smile every time I look at it.

♥ The Husband ♥
The most meaningful gift (I'm not going to cheat and say his heart/last name/etc lol) has to be the necklace he designed for me with our jeweler.  He gave it to me our 2nd Christmas together (2008) -- it was completely unexpected and really thoughtful.
You can KINDA see it here
The best gift he gave me was last Christmas (2009) -- he bought me tickets to the Steelers @ Miami game the first weekend in January.

Any husband who gets you Steelers tickets is a keeper for sure! A cruise would be pretty fantastic, too, though. :)
