Word on the Street: Best Gift I've Ever Gotten

By: Team Knix

Even though we sing along with Mariah Carey when she says, “I don’t want a lot for Christmas”, the truth is… getting gifts is awesome. I’m specifically talking about those kinds of presents that are super sentimental, deeply meaningful, and gifted to you from the people you love. Don’t get me wrong, diamond rings are really nice (if anyone is out there that would like to wed me, you can find me on Linkedin), but sometimes the best gifts can also be immaterial, home made, and something unexpected that leaves a lasting impact. 

We asked people in our Knix community about the best gifts they’ve ever received. Check out some of their answers below. If all of these were underneath the tree, it’d be one pretty special holiday. 

My wonderful little nephew! He was born on Christmas Eve last year

@marydinelle (Thanks Mary 😂)

We also poked around the office and asked about the best gifts Team Knix has ever received!

The best gift was my sewing machine from my parents when I was a kid. It got me sewing at a young age!

Jules, Design Director

  

When I turned 12 I woke up to a beautiful sunny day and walked into the kitchen to find a brand new red and white bicycle!! As the youngest of three girls, I always got hand-me-downs, so this was HUGE for me. I still have the bike today!

Julia, E-Commerce Product Manager

 

A couple years ago, my mom gave me a bullion coin necklace. The chain belonged to my grandmother. I never take it off and it’s the most special thing I own. 

Steph, Social Media Manager
