I know what you mean. For financial reasons, I haven't bought anyone a christmas gift in a few years now. Instead, try to gather everyone together for the holidays.

Think the most memorable gift a friend got for me was a copy of Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, a Roman Emperor, a translation, not the original book of course.

It made sense as that friend is very interested in history, especially roman history, and he said that when he read it, he immediately thought of me. In the front cover, he had written a message to me, and when he gave me the book, he said that he knew I wouldn't read it right away, but that I would when it was right for me.

It's still sitting on my bookshelf, unread, but the only way I will part with that book is over my dead body. :P

Please excuse any and all incoherence in the above, I'm drugged up with cold meds and unable to sleep.
