What is the most unique gift you have given or received

When I was about 12 I gave my brother a box full of his own underwear for christmas, but I had stolen it all from his room like weeks before so I could wrap it up. He had been surviving on one pair of underwear for about a month and wasn’t even bothered by it, he was just happy to have his other underwear back. To this day it’s still the most impressive feat to me. I was legitimately frightened by how unfazed he was.

— Aidan Andrews
