Throwback Thursday # 6 – Gifts

Lauren and Maggie are hosting this challenge.

Welcome to the sixth edition of the Throwback Thursday Memory BlogHop where we take on a nostalgic object, event, or memory and blog about it. It’s the last Thursday of September. Hopefully we will be having cooler days, which in my book means more inside time and more time to blog. Maggie, From Cave Walls, and I alternate posting a blog with the title Throwback Thursday – subject of the week.

This week my subject is memories of gift giving or receiving.

You can share a story or poem about yourself, your family, or your friends. Feel free to use the photo above in your post and tag it with #TBTMemory or #IRememberWhento make it easier for others to find.  After you’ve written your reply post, please link it here to this week’s prompt page and check to make sure it’s here.  You can also add your thoughts to the comments below if that works best to you.

When Maggie and I were talking about my topic this week, we both realized there were a multitude of ways to go with the prompt. Personally, I have been given some silly gifts, some inappropriate gifts, some wonderful gifts, and of course sentimental gifts. If I add in all the presents I have given, the list of options to write about gets even longer.

What about you? What memories do you hold in relation to gifts? Was there some gift so wonderful that you will never forget it? Do you still remember a gift from a beau? Do you put such great thought into the gifts you give, that you hold those memories close to your heart? What about silly gifts you’ve been given or gifted?

Today I ask you to reach back into your memory bank and tell us about a gift you received or gave.


I would write about the many amazing gifts that I received

But alas my memory refuses to recall any of them clearly

Though I know that there have been many that gladdened my heart

And made me proud to be that person who inspired that loyalty

As for the gifts that I thought up and presented to my loved ones

Those have been so many and so varied

From a simple bouquet and a homemade card

They include expensive gadgets and
pieces of jewelry for my daughters

It matters not the value of the gift you give or receive

What matters is the love that accompanied that gift

  1. Too true Sadje. I have Share the love day at work where I give out scratchies to everyone. It seems to make people happy to get something randomly


  2. I try to put a lot of thought into what I give. One of the memorable gifts I got was from my sister. She knew my birthstone was opal and got me some opal earrings it was clever because she put them on the leaf of a rose she gave me in a vase. I love opals!
