Last January 1, when we attended the Thanksgiving lunch party of my hubby’s cousin at their house, after attending the New Year mass in the morning,I also received a gift from her again too. Actually, she has a gift for everyone and this thanksgiving lunch party is always every January 1. It’s her way of sharing their blessings every year, she said. They even have games at the compound’s grounds. It’s always a much awaited time of the year for everybody at their compound. Anyway, the gift she gave me may not cost a lot, but I appreciate it so much. It is a mug with a stirrer and a cover with a hole on the side for the stirrer to stand out, as you can see in the picture. I actually use it every day at the office. I like receiving gifts that I can always use. It makes me remember the person every time I use it. Have you received a gift that may not be costly, but useful to you?

That's a very useful and practical gift. I prefer gifts that I can use daily over expensive and fancy gifts that I can hardly use.

@SIMPLYD that is why, when I have no clue what gift to give, I just give gift cards or cash so the person receiving it can purchase something that he/she can use.

Yes.. Every December 9 here in the college, the head of the midwifery celebrates her birthday and she gives out gifts to her visitors that are not so costly but useful.

Really ! Oh , that is so generous of her . Instead of her expecting gifts, she gives out gifts. She must have lots of money because i suppose there are many to give even if they aren't costly gifts . My birthday too is December 09.

This is a very nice gift. I surely prefer something inexpensive but practical than a precious thing that I never use. I have received so many expensive gift that I have sold because I did not use them.

@SIMPLYD Well, I can give away things that have not a big value, but I had several silver objects that had a great value, but I had no use for them. The clients of my husband used to offer those gifts, it's easy to sell silverware. I have kept expensive handbags, even if I use them very little.

Sometimes small very useful gifts are much better than expensive not useful gifts. My delight this year was to get a belt with my name on it to go around my suitcase. Not expensive but it will help me very much on my travels as my case will stand out at the airport!

Is it not satisfying when gifts turn out to be useful. It is not always the case. At our wedding we got pressure cookers yes cookers while just one is what is needed in the kitchen (lol)

I must try to listen to people more. Sometimes they will tell you what they need and sometimes it is not that expensive. Yes a thoughtful gift is appreciated. It is mostly the thought that counts.
