"The most memorable gift I ever received was when I received a nurse's kit. I was 5 years old. I've worked as a nurse for the last 46 years."

"The most memorable gift I've given is the one that I just made. I made some jazz Christmas tunes and mailed them off to people. It was more personal and I had a lot of fun making it."

"I gave a stranger an iPhone. I overheard a conversation where someone was talking about his iPod being broken. I was updating to the new iPhone that day so I just decided to give it to him."
