    As it turns out, the best gifts are those which are necessary at a given moment. They do not have to be original or expensive. It is important that they are practical and really necessary for life. Ordinary hot-water bottle or shoe inserts are able to sweeten everyday life.

    #1 The Clock

    "I got a clock. It's small and cute, so I hung it in my bathroom. It works perfectly for my morning showers when I want to keep track of the time and know how long I've been pouring water. It gives me peace of mind to get ready for work."

    #2 Container

    "An smart container that protects the bananas. It keeps the fruit from getting bruised and prevents it from getting crushed at the bottom of the bag."

    #3 Sports T-shirt

    "My mom accidentally bought me a running shirt. At the time, I was an unhealthy, fat little kid. She wanted to encourage me to play sports. I started running. After a few months of training, I finally managed to run 10 km and lost a lot of weight. Later, I started weightlifting. Today, I'm a gym manager and I no longer look like a sickly child. And all because of the T-shirt I still have today."

    #4 Fish

    "I was furious with my husband when I realized that money had started disappearing from our bank account. I confronted him in April. He lied to my face and told me he had to spend part of his paycheck on scaffolding. I didn't believe him. In November, I celebrated my birthday. I unwrapped presents and there were 25 different fish (cat toys, glass fish, wooden fish, sugar fish). It turned out my family had funded a trip to Vieques, Puerto Rico, for me to learn to scuba dive."

    #6 Shoe insoles

    "I got insoles for my shoes from my mom. I had never used those before, but they turned out to be fantastic. My feet have stopped hurting. It's the best gift ever."

    #7 Vitamins

    "My partner at the time bought me vitamin D on a date. At the time I wasn't feeling well, cancelled one appointment and had a blood test done. It turned out I was vitamin D deficient, and my partner knew this beforehand. ;)"

    #8 The Bathrobe

    "My parents bought me a bathrobe that was too big when I was younger. I was a little disappointed with the gift until I saw a gift card in his pocket. I still have the bathrobe to this day."

    #9 Dinosaur

    "I am a huge dinosaur fan. A few years ago, for my 30th birthday, I got the Dino Riders (animated series) torosaurus that I always wanted (as a kid). I was completely stunned by the gift, but it's a fantastic feeling when you get a toy as an adult."

    #10 Drawing

    "When I first became a police officer, I was amazed at what I had to deal with. There were a lot of shootings, fear, and death. I also had a lot of stress in my personal life. One day I was working at a school. There, a girl handed me a drawing of a cat that she had made for me. Literally tears came to my eyes. I was really touched. It had been years since anyone had thanked me for anything at work or made such a nice gesture."

    #11 Fountain Pen

    "My boss bought me, as a Teacher's Day gift, a fountain pen with my name on it. It wasn't a quality gift (although it's actually my first fountain pen at age 20). I never knew I would become so obsessed with it. Now I'm planning on buying some kind of exclusive."

    #12 Opener

    "Years ago someone gave me a can opener. I didn't ask for it, but I like to cook. I absolutely love this item and still have it in my kitchen today. I recommend it to everyone."

    #14 Cleaning

    "My partner ordered a cleaning crew for me when I was 9 months pregnant. I hate having a dirty house, but I just couldn't keep it clean anymore. It was a much needed gift!"

    Obraz

    #15 Thermo Bottle

    "I received a thermo bottle. At the time I lived in an attic with terrible insulation. I had icy feet every night and had to take hot baths for them."
