Wow that's kinda soppy for me lol. If we are talking like that then i would have to say my son he has changed my world for the better in a major way. I dont mean he has made things easier, but he has made things much brighter and louder and loads of fun. Real prezzies, i got an ipod and a video recorder for christmas from my partner. I was so stoked!! I never expected such awsome present made it mean alot more was from the heart.

The best gift that I ever got was my daughter and then I met my husband later on to be a real good father to her. I thank the lord every day for that. I love them both and need them in my life daily. I would be incomplete and lost without them.

I'd have to say that the best gift I've ever recieved, was the gift of love. Before my boyfriend came into my life, I was going through a huge spell of depression, and I hated life. He turned things around for quite quickly, and I'm completely greatful. I love him with all my heart, and I'm just so lucky that he loves me too.

My greatest gift of course is God's love and His forgiveness. I think we can put it in so many different ways. Some people call it "salvation", some call it "redemption," and some may call it "eternal life" like you. When Jesus came down to earth to be among us, and consequently for us, He manifested His greatest gift to all His creatures.

God always shed us blessings and gifts everyday. In my case, the best gift I ever received was my beloved partner and sweetheart. She came in my life unexpectedly and now we ended up harmoniously and elated together. I can really say that she is my perfect match. I love her very much.

Ok so I took your heading literally - as in actually 'material' presents. Personally, I don't think you can deny the capitalist world we live in, where material goods ARE treasured as dearly by some as they do the types of things your refrerring to - like children and life itself.

Hello dear julyteen. I quite agree with you that the best gift ever given is eternal life, this special gift from God, and the opportunity for us to repent and start anew. I also consider it as my best gift ever received.

The best gift I ever received are my kids. They made my life complete. I am so thankful that God gave them to me....No material things will ever replaced the happiness that I felt when I conceived them.
