The Best Gift They Ever Received

What do you get for someone who already has everything they could possibly want? Well, I don’t know if anyone truly has everything they could want, but I know quite a few people who really do not want for very much at all. My parents are two examples of this type of person, which makes it very hard to buy them anything when it comes to special holidays like Christmas, their birthdays or anniversary. I wanted to find some great info on different ways I could surprise them for their anniversary this past summer, and I found a terrific idea from an online forum that I visit.

Others were discussing the same issue around Mother’s Day, and someone suggested that people gift their mothers with a limo ride to a really nice restaurant. I thought this was a terrific idea, because luxury is always a nice gift. I knew that my parents had never been in a limo before, and I really wanted to do this for them after reading about how happy some of the forum members’ mothers were after getting their limo ride. I knew that my mom would really enjoy the taste of luxury, and I had a feeling my dad would as well.

I knew that my father was planning on taking my mom to her favorite restaurant for their anniversary, so I asked him if I could make the plans instead. He figured I was just going to make reservations there, but I actually made them for the restaurant where they had their first date. They never considered it because it was nearly 90 minutes away, but the limo ride would take care of the transportation. For those three hours of travel time, I just wanted them to enjoy the champagne, music, comfortable seats, and the time that they would have to just talk about their shared memories and dreams. They later told me it was the best gift they ever received!
