A Gift for You: just cos (Update-NOW CLOSED)

Because it’s my birthday
Because I realized there’s really nothing I want/need this year

Because my friends, family and hubby have all asked what I wanted 
and for some reason have refused to believe me when I say I’m good.
No shoes, no tech, no clothes, no bags (yikes) nothing really…

(although none of them was offering a trip around the world and paid time off)

and Because giving something can feel as good as getting

I’m giving one lucky reader, one little thing I realized I would appreciate for my birthday.

It’s the NY Times 36hours supa dupa coffee table travel book.
Reading this blog, you may have noticed that I love to travel near or far.
Lately due to time constraints etc, I have to stay near.
So this NYtimes travel book is the best
I have always loved their 36hours travel features
And this one is just for the great old US of A.
You’ll be surprised how many amazing places and things to see there are so close to home.
My copy is on its way and I can’t wait.
Seriously, look at the size of this thing.

So, I’m looking for someone to share in the excitement of this little thing.

All You have to do is leave a comment answering:

What is the best gift you’ve ever received?

Winner announced 4th of July.
How very American of me….
no other rules or things to do
well, except be a follower (that’s always nice too)
P.S.  Maybe I should answer my question.
I’m probably gonna get some flack for this from the hubby and some others as I have received so many beautiful, wonderful, expensive, thoughtful gifts, but the best one, was from a girlfriend. 
It was a framed picture of our crew of 4 girlfriends, while we were studying abroad together in Paris. 
It was just perfect and what I needed- the memories and just everything.

    An alarm clock. One of my best childhood friends got it for me when we were in 6th grade. She said that me always being late to school made her sad. I laugh at the rationale now, because my lateness was caused by my slow morning pace more than anything. Still, it's something I use every single day and I've had it for almost 10 years now. Still works perfectly– good and loud, has a radio, two alarm functions,works on battery or by plug, and gets my lazy butt in motion.

    My favorite gift — ever — was when I severely was bitten by the travel bug after graduating high school, and my parents fully extended their support when I decided to travel abroad for a few years instead of heading directly to college. Being a vagabond and thrust into so many unique cultures completely transformed my perception.

    I feel truly blessed to have such fascinating experiences and memories.

    The best gift I've ever gotten was when I was leaving home for college and my mom gave me a cross necklace that belonged to her father. He gave it to her when she emigrated to the United States to protect her on her long journey. That necklace was/is extremely special to her so the fact she was willing to give it to me for the same reason was very special.

    The best gift i've ever received was from my grandmother. Growing up we hardly got along but on my birthday she got up early made me breakfast in bed ( fish sticks, pancakes, and tea) i remember because i never really ate beast that much. She brought it up in the tray only her used and said "breakfast in bed for the princess." That made me tear up. knowing that despite our differences my grandma still treated me like a queen. What girl doesn't want that?

    Other people have commented with some really fabulous gifts, but here's mine anyway:

    Back when I was about 10 or 12, I still really liked Barbies… it was my hush-hush hobby, but I just loved dressing them up and concocting stories for my dolls, then acting them out.
    My Nana gave me a couple really nice, gorgeous porcelain dolls from her collection for Christmas one year.
    My mom, of course, immediately forbid me from playing with them the way I played with my Barbies – not roughly, per se, but you know what I mean.
    At the time, I resented the dolls a little bit, because they were doomed to sit in a corner of my room looking pretty but completely untouchable. As time has passed, they're still in the corner of my room, but I've come to appreciate them for being beautiful and a real token of love from my Nana, rather than a disposable plastic Barbie.

    Also, this book looks INCREDIBLE. I got bitten by the travel bug earlier this summer and I've been itching to go out and see the world!

    The best birthday present I ever received was probably the ring my parents gave me on my 13th birthday. My sisters and I have all received one, but since I'm the oldest, I got it first and it was a huge surprise. Either that or the dream catcher that my best friend got me for my birthday. I don't really know why, but it's travelled everywhere with me since I got it three/four years ago.

    The best gift I've ever received was a trip to Rome during Christmas with my Dad. We spent 3 days there, toured the city and got to go to Midnight Mass at the Vatican and literally sat four rows away from the altar (somehow we sneaked our way into the VIP seating area, haha!). It was the perfect Christmas vacay!

    My puppy! She was a gift to the whole family for Christmas, but she's definitely and by far the best gift ever.

    Thank you for a lovely giveaway. I would love to win this, my husband and I always print out the 36 hours in… sections from NYT for whatever city we're heading to. From Barcelona to Bombay, they've come in so handy.

    Anyway, my favourite gift was my kitten Ices – he was a sweetheart. 🙂

    Happy Birthday! I hope you have had a wonderful day! The best birthday present I received was from my husband. It was simple just a cake and some flowers…why it was the best was the country that we lived in at the time did not make traditional birthday cakes. So he had to walk, catch a bus, get on a subway to pick up this cake and do all of that in reverse just to give me a small birthday celebration. Sometimes is it is just the smallest gestures that make the largest impact. Take care!

    Happy Happy Birthday! The best gift I received was life. Let me explain. When my father passed away unexpectedly 3 years ago, it shook my foundation and caused me to 'wake up', to stop going through life and instead to live it. As a result, instead of cancelling my trip to Greece (I found out as I was heading to the airport), I took a deep breath, and felt my father urging me to continue with my dream, to be the best me, to LIVE, to love and to BE. And I've never looked back since. And I've been a happier person for it!

    hmm im not sure if this is considered a gift that was given to me, but we are blessed with a mother and a baby cat that found us last christmas. The mother cat found a spot under our front house stairs to have her kittens. we have adopted both mother and son (the other kittens didnt survive) and they are a delite to have around. they have converted me to a cat lover now 🙂

    My first authentic pearl necklace and matching bracelet from my parents. They were (and still are) so very proud of me and I felt honored to receive such a meaningful gift.

    Happy b-day! what an amazing book! perfect for summer road-trips and quick weekend getaways.

    the best gift i've ever received was from by best friend, Al. it's a stuffed cheetah cub. he says i remind him of a cheetah, gave me the nickname 'cheetah', and knows that cheetahs are my favorite animal. so sweet!

    Happy birthday! 2 months away from mine to the date. On my last birthday, I was blindfolded and first surprised with my cousin making a trip down to visit. And then, blindfolded again and ended up at a winery (something I really wanted to do). Super fun and brought a few bottles back 🙂 And how sweet of you to give a gift on your birthday.

    Oh,the best gift I received?? Hmm, I stink at answering these types of questions! Most recently was last year's NYC trip with 2 of my closest gal pals! It was exactly what I needed.
