Best Gift Ever

best gift you've ever received

Quartz asked 40 leaders in art, business, fashion, science and social justice the question: What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? (Really well done with the exception of the giant Rolex Ads in between)

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? Mine was a print by an artist I love.

  1. Isn’t Melinda Gates the wife of the founder of Microsoft? Find it very funny that her favourite gift was a Mac.

  2. I have two favourite gifts. One is my cat, given to me by an ex-boyfriend. She is the gift that keeps giving, 13 years later :)

    The other is a jade carving, made by another ex. It’s beautiful in its own right but when I received it I made a point of visiting my parents that day to show them, and that night my father unexpectedly died. It was an incredible gift to have seen him that very day when otherwise I wouldn’t have, so holds special power to me because of that.

  3. My best gift is my life :-)

  5. Thanks, @john. Updated.

  6. The sewing machine (Bernina!) my parents gave me for my 20th birthday (I asked for it). More than 20 years later it is still very, very useful and in excellent shape.
