Christmas Presents

An update to my earlier posts on Christmas presents, and the value of jewelry as a gift.

FDIL (Future-Dad-in-law) bought FMIL (figure it out!) a necklace with a lovely green sapphire and diamond pendant as a Christmas present. Her reaction was of the kind I predicted - she was speechless and teary-eyed, and couldn't get enough of it. And FDIL was obviously thrilled with her excitement; his smile was at least as broad as hers as he helped her put it on.

Perhaps it is a little silly for us to get this much pleasure out of trinkets that cost so much money, but it is a fact that we do. Ignoring that fact, and hence depriving yourself and someone you love of a source of much joy, seems like a shame to me.
