People can remember special gift they have received for long times, even though there are several reasons of it, I believe, because of these following two major reasons.
One reason is that people have longed for the present during very long time. Even from young ages, some people have had their long-cherished dreams and presents. As time goes on, due to the fact that people are easily apt to negotiate their dreams with the difficult world, people often gradually forget their dreams or give up them. However, eventually some people achieve their goals through great endeavors, in this case the gift they take must be special, therefore they cannot forget it.
The other reason is that people sometimes do not anticipate the present they have at all. Gifts from unknown people and gifts I never expect sometimes give us great touching feelings and nice emotions which I am loved specially by someone.
For example, I have recived two never-forgotten gifts. Those are a fountain pen and a hankerchief. First one was from my father who shared my happiness when I entered one of good universities in my country. Second one was from my girl friend who promised to marry me, which I never expected during that times.
