Do you have a sentimental favourite gift or object that gives you great pleasure and lots of happy memories.

I do. I still have a beautiful Christmas Card with a whole lot of wonderful personal messages written inside expressing their appreciation for the great times we had together in Israel that was given to me by two Dutch Nurses in Jerusalem on the 19th December 1985.

I have an aerial photo of Butlin's Filey holiday camp.
I can sit and look at that thing for hours, just remembering how it was and the fun we used to have there every summer when we were kids.

Things were so different then.
As far as I'm concerned, growin' up sucks big time! :(

sless you've reminded me of the tree we had when I was little, it was only about 24" and stood on a little red wooden block, but a dear little tree, I still have 4 or 5 of the original glass decorations but dunno whatever happened to the tree. I bought a similar one for Christmas just gone and much prefer them to these gargantuan ones.

Other sentimental items - too many to list :lol: :oops: :lol:

I have too many to count, Global. Most are just little things I've collected over the years from people of whom I'm very fond. A doll, a nick-nack, a postcard...they all hold special value as they make me think of the one who offered it and the affection I have for them.

This very thread has made me ponder how many dear friends I have collected over the years. They are what give me the most pleasure and provide the happiest memories.

My oldest daughter, when she was about 2, picked up a pine cone in a park and came across and said "This is a present for you, mummy". It was the first spontaneous gift she had ever given me, of course, so I kept it and I still have it.
After that, everyone assumed I particularly liked pine cones, so over the years the kids would bring me in pine cones. they even painted a set of them for me one Xmas. I kept all of them on display for years and years but eventually got rid of them all, except for that first one.

Suggestion anything written by kids etc have them laminated. As it will stop the paper yellowing and getting torn.

I laminated my Christmas card and even after 22 years it is still in a pristine condition.
