    Probably the main point we've all been making...

    I had amazing grandparents on both sides. Both sets were reasonably well off, but also both were frugal and conservative. They would spend money to "do things" with us but very, very seldom to "buy stuff" for us.

Full of little strips of colored paper, each with one of their memories written on it. Not a single one of them yet has mentioned anything "material"..no mention of presents or things like that. I pull them out sparingly...but heck, I'll treat myself to one now:
    Good stuff
