Tis the season: Thoughts on best gifts ever received

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

Over the past several months, due to pandemic restrictions and precautions, we conducted our mini-survey online. For this issue, however, we were once again on the street! On a recent Saturday at the Juice Hive and Lowcountry Made in Bluffton Village, we asked: “What’s the best gift you ever received – that was unwrapped?”

Katie Silva, Bluffton: “The best was a Bob double jogging stroller. My husband got it for me for our second child.”











Scott Wiley, Bluffton: “A true, authentic friendship.”











Lea McKinley, Bluffton: “My son – he is my great accomplishment.”











Addison Altizer, Bluffton: “There are two: The gift of salvation through Jesus Christ; and my children. I can’t imagine a better gift than either of those.”












Jessica Piscitelli, Bluffton: “That’s easy – my son.”
