Figuring out what was the best gift I’ve ever given someone is pretty hard to do. I’ve given lots of gifts in my life! However, after celebrating Hanukkah this year with my parents, one of the best gifts that I was able to give was a gift certificate to my mom for the two of us to go out for lunch at Aruba Beach Cafe, a fun, sea side restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, and spend time together, which is something that we haven’t done (without the baby at least) in a very long time.

Lately my mom has been working really hard, and my parents have actually been kind enough to give us some pretty huge gifts recently, like replacing our very old washing machine and helping us with a master bathroom remodel some time next year. While I can’t do anything in comparison (and I know my parents don’t expect us to), I wanted to give my mom something nice for Hanukkah that would show my appreciation for her and let her know that I wanted to spend some special time with her at a fun place, away from work, while the baby is having fun at preschool. That way we can both enjoy our meals and our time together.

I think my mom appreciated the thought behind the gift that I gave her, and I’m really looking forward to making our lunch date some time soon. If we have nice weather, maybe we can even sit outside and enjoy the smell of the ocean breeze!

Catching up on my google reader and am so glad I read this. I always think the best gift to give is those where you get to create a new memory that you will always treasure. Of all places Aruba sounds fab. My husband and I have been renting at Sea Foam ( a little cute boutique hotel right next door to Aruba) for the last three years. That is our summer getaway. We get nothing tangible when we go and we leave a few pounds heavier but our hearts lighter. Just the memories of the time spent together ARE the BEST gifts ever.:) Happy Holidays!
