the gift that i considered the best i ever received from my husband was the engagement, wedding and anniversary ring he gave me. i always wear it cause i like it so much. it just has meaning to me and i really take care of it. it's not about the value (cost) of the gift but how special it is to you because of what it stands for. he gave me a lot of beautiful gift but the rings are the ones i consider the best because of what it means and because it reminds me of his love and commitment for me. (i have attached the pic here for my friends to view) what do you think is the best gift your partner has given you? why do you consider is as the best gift you ever received from him?

The best my husband gave me was the Kitchen aid Mix master. Oh he did give me an anniversary ring, but that sticks on my finger and looks pretty. The Kitchen aid I use. They do not make that model now, but it still works, unlike the Sunbeam I got when we were married, that did not have the power. I am not the one who attaches sentimental value to gifts. I want to use them, but rings and necklaces do look so nice on me.

The best gift my boyfriend ever bought me was inexpensive but it made me so happy. It was easter last year and i was feeling ill and miserable. My boyfriend came round to my house after work and he had bought me a fluffy duck toy and Disney's Robin Hood on dvd. It would be nothing to some people but he remembered that i'd really loved the movie as a kid and it cheered me up so much!

For me is the 'salt lamp' when I was warded/admitted to Medical Hospital for 5 days for my anaemia/anemia, my husband hardly found that precious things to me. Whereby at that time I was in critical condition in which there is a deficiency of red cells or haemoglobin in the blood, resulting in pallor and weariness. I will never miss to sleep with that gift. As that lamp must be in switch-on-mood for 24 hours in a day. If 'off' for one day it will melt, so every time I look at it, I feel happy and in a great miss to my husband.

The best gift to me from my wife is her greatest contribution to my family because of her giving her full time taking good care of the family and her heart-and-soul devotion to the family. She is the greatest in my eyes together with my greatest parents. She is the best gift to me as well as my parents.

The best gift my boyfriend has ever given me was my nintendo wii. It's not so much that I love the Wii the best, but he worked the hardest to get it for me. I wanted a Wii for Christmas quite badly, so my boyfriend waited on line over night outside a local Target store to get one for me. He told me to stay home and sleep while he stood outside in the cold with a friend of his. It's really special to me because he was willing to go through all that trouble just to get me what I wanted most for Christmas. Who have ever thought that a video game system could be so romantic?

I would have to say that the best gift my partner has ever given me was a song. He wrote it about me and has performed it at gigs, and each time he dedicates it to me.

A diamond necklace just when we started dating. I was like, "We just started dating a few weeks ago." WOW! Somehow he knew we would be together forever from the start and so did I. That just proved it. But the wedding and engagement rings topped that. But strangely enough, I like the solid cherry rocking chair, too. It is beautiful. Take care

its always been the sentimental value that matters and not how expensive a gift should be..sometimes just a simple i love you and a simple smile can make the special day good..i haven't got any expensive gift..but it does not matter to me for as long as he remembers..its all worth my day to carry on..

We took a very nice trip this weekend, jumped on the harley and went riding around viewing the beautiful fall foliage for two days.. ate out.. slept at a motel.. stopped to see a good friend and went to dinner.. stopped at a couple of road houses.. It was great. He also always makes sure I can take a trip home each year.. even if it means he has to skip his annual fishing and hunting trip once in awhile.. Then of course there's our two kids (grown now). :)blessings!

Our Hearts - This is how much we love each other STILL even after 16 years of marriage and still counting....
The ring is beautiful Claire! Wow. Lucky you! LOL The best gift my hubby gave me is his heart. To have him love me the way he does is the best in the whole world. He's understanding, helpful, sweet, caring, thoughtful, loving, has a great sense of humor, I could go on and on. So to have someone like him love me like he does is the best gift I could ever ask for and ever hope for.

Oh thats easy :-D the best gift my husband ever gave me was my youngest son :-) Just like the best gift my ex ever gave me was my two oldest kids...Other than that (my children) I have to honestly say that though I've had some great prezzies from my partners none of them are best or better than any other..but I dont really put much stock in material prezzies ya know..sure they are nice and I love getting gifts but they are just material things to me..

The best gift I received from my hubby this year is a digital camera. The camera is gifted as a birthday present. He knows that I love photography very much, and recently I am interested in learning to take some good photos, he then buys a brand new Olympus digital camera for me. I love it very much as it is handy and has lots of advanced functions. It will then be my close companion as it could help me to capture many memorable moments.

I received a bouquet of roses for my birthday this past year and I had never received that before. So I thought that was pretty cool.
