  1. The cost of the holiday gift is insignificant. One of my close friends once awarded me his recipe for one of my favored meals, making it
    out in calligraphy on paper, along with a proposal to
    prepare it beside me. Ultimate cost approximately zero, and
    still one of the most fantastic and loving present that I have
    ever gotten.
