Gave a gift over the weekend that reminded me that thought is way more important than cost when it comes to gift-giving.
I had pieced together several things for a female relative for a milestone birthday and one ended up being her favourite out of all her gifts.
I bought her a gorgeous nightie, warm enough that she can wear it for at least half the year, trimmed with lace so pretty enough that she doesn't feel like a daggy mum in it, but modest enough that it is fine to wear with little kids in the house.
It was $60 full price, I got it on sale for $12.
She loved it so much she told her all her friends at her birthday dinner, and texted me the next day to thank me again.
I always try to put thoughts into gifts, and I'm so pleased that it made her day.
