This is all so cute! I haven't been sent anything that expensive or so, but something that means more than anything else could. He is basically constantly on levels with fewer privileges so he sent me what he could, the corner of a queen of hearts card with "to my Elin" scrappled on the back. I could just have died right there and then! Nothing much or big, but it meant the world to me!

Well like most of you I am lucky enough to get hand painted cards and handkerchiefs and stuff. I live by the beach and he has painted the view from my house from pictures that I have sent him. Who wants chocolates huh when you can get something as unique and special?

What are SQ inmates allowed to send out? I have never asked for anything but would love a piece of clothing to wear. He sends me beautiful letters and painted cards he makes for me, he writes very sweet poems for me too and sends me pictures as often as he can.

He sent me a rose made out of toilet paper. It was dyed blue with a green stem and leaves. When I smelled inside it smelled like M&M's. He always has pretty designs on the envelope!

My baby sends me constant letters, he's sent me cards, handkerchiefs that had custom messages and drawings from him on them, he's had arts and crafts made for me, but my favorite of all is a teddy bear that he had sent to me and it came with hershey's kisses for our anniversary/valentine's day. i can hold it and hug it and it always reminds me of him. The lil bear blows kisses when you press him tummy, so when i need a lil kiss, just press teddy's tummy and the sentiment of my baby's right there!!!!

He sent me pictures and cards and he did the hand tracing thing too. He said it would be like putting my hand in his and when I replied I did a tracing of my hand for him too.

The best thing he has ever sent were two secret phone calls. They aren`t allowed to have phone calls in there but he got a cell phone and he risked alot. I am always worried about him but these calls were the biggest surprise of my whole life and our love is growing a lot.

My brother-in-law is on death row and he sends letters and cards. He is still adjusting. He has been there a short time and is very young.

I don't mean this so much as a reply to "what do they GIVE you?" in terms of tangible items, but more in reference to intangibles: if you have to ask....you probably would not understand.

I don't mean that sarcastically....I think those of you who know someone on DR will know what I mean.

Ooookay. But the poll asks about tangible things. That would be the reason people are mentioning "things". I know it's late here and I am tired, but I don't understand the point you are trying to make. We all typically receive something that is so much more precious than "things"...whether our loved one is on DR, or not. The "intangible" things come from loved ones other than just DR. I have a husband who is not on DR and my bro-in-law that is, so I actually see both sides. If I completely misunderstood your post, then I am sorry. My brain is sleepy and I have had a long week already.

When I read the title I immediately thought, he gives me the gift of laughter and intelligent conversation, which I hope I return in equal measure but on a less cerebral level () he sends me poetry. Real stream of conciousness stuff that he knows I like.

But even the tangible items are VERY precious and special gifts, you know? There isnt so much they are able to give this way because they havent anything.
But
on the other side every word, every smile, every thought is a precious gift to me because of the situation these guys are in. And its one of the most importent lessons of my life to see how they have changed in there.
I guess thats the real treasure they share with me.

My pals have taught me that you dont need lots of material processions to be happy.
They give me lots of laughter and love and it does not matter how bad my day has been there letters always cheer me up.

I am from Germany too :-) and I can only say that I love every piece of art that my man does for me. His first drawing was a teddy bear wearing a ribbon with my name in beautiful writing in it and many other beautiful drawings followed, like a rose card for my birthday that he was drawing and the wonderful words going with it. I have some of his socks, his shirts and even a pair of shoes, a necklace, one of his cups and spoon and all sorts of things that he gave me. I treasure each and every piece of it but most of all it is the love that he shows me in everything he does, in all of his letters and doings. This is so wonderful that nothing compares to it and even if he were not able to give me anything, as long as I have his love I am fine.

I had a beautiful hand painted t-shirt from my pal on Ohio death row yesterday,it was so cool.

My other pal in Polunsky has just sent me a necklace and bracelet that he made me with a hand drawn card.

I treasure all the stuff my pals send to me but what is must important to me is our friendship and the laughts we share together.I know I can talk to my pals about everything and they never judge me.
