Some of the best gifts don't come wrapped

Because I'm such an enthusiast, some people assume that beautiful gift wrapping is a must in my ideal gift. Not so! Some of the best gifts received by our family this year have come - yes - completely unwrapped.

Take this suspicious-looking postcard that came in the mail this spring.

I was ready to chuck it in the recycling when I flipped it over to read this message:

G's Uncle Tom ordered this gift subscription for N! We got such a kick out of this unexpected present (sent to us months after birthday and Christmas time). Now, a new issue of Successful Farming waits for us in the mailbox every few weeks, supplying us with many opportunities to learn about tractors, balers, combines, and how to make the most of your sidedressing rig. N loves it.

(Did you catch the ad on the back cover? MAN VS. WEED.)

I'll be back soon with another favorite un-wrapped gift. But I'd love to hear your stories in the meantime. What's the best non-gift-wrapped gift you've received lately?

  1. Oh my gosh, you guys are too cute! You know, my little one would like this kind of gift too. He likes anything involving machinery, moving parts etc.

    Your pic reminds me of my little one and I on the couch.This afternoon we spent an hour reading "Journey to the Center of the Earth". He wouldn't let me put it down.
