I’ll be honest — I can’t think of any really awesome gifts I’ve done. I mean, I’ve got the year that I made Bill’s mom cry with an awesome craft sale find of mine (she still puts it up). I’ve got the year that Kari (my sister) and I had our pictures done in secret for our mom and dad. Or the year my sister and I bought each other the same thing. Or taking my kids to Disney. But nothing compares to the baby shower I just went to a couple of weeks ago. It was for my cousin’s wife. Her mom is an expert sewer and seriously can make anything you want.

When Megan got to the gift her mom gave her, she first opened the card. Her mom told her she had to read it. Megan asked, “Out loud?” We all laughed of course, and she said yes. The room got quiet, and we all listened.

When Megan was 5, her mom was pregnant with her little brother. She had went to the fabric store with her mom. She was getting fabric to make a quilt. She had asked her mother if she could pick out some fabric for when she had a baby. Her mom let her and bought it with the fabric she had picked out for her brother.

Fast forward to now, over 20 years later. We all sat there with anticipation. Her mom had taken the fabric that 5 year old Megan picked out and made a quilt for her new baby. Seriously, I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place. Luckily, the fabric wasn’t pink (they are having a boy)! Tell me that is not the coolest story ever.

Now, I’ve never given a gift that awesome, but I love that I get to share that story with you all! What’s the best gift you’ve given?
