The reason why you can not forget the presents
There should be a lot of reasons why people would remember special presents which they received. I believe that it is not only because the presents were good or outstandingly expensive one, but also there were special memory or story that the presets bring with. Let me use some specific reasons and examples to explain why I believe so.
First of all, you will receive gifts when there are something nice happen to you. For example, you might have got your special pen when you had achieve to pass the entrance exam to the school which is hard to pass. So the present will bring good memory with it. You will remember how you are confident whenever you see the pen. Even though you lost the present accidently, your good memory of when someone who care you gave you the present. It is unforgettable for me that my parents gave me baseball bat when I managed to enter junior league team when I was ten years old. Although the bat was worn out and lost for years ago, I am not able to forget the delight when I receive with the joy of entering the team. The gift turn into the treasure which shows your accomplishment. Therefore, the event with which you are given the present enhance your to remember the gift.
In addition, the present has to be given from someone. It is not just someone, actually. It is the person who celebrates your accomplishment. So it should turn out to be somebody special to you also. For instance, I carry old leather name card case which was given by my wife when I got job which I had been willing to enroll for years. She gave it to me at that time we had not yet become husband and wife ,while we were dating for two years. Anyway, I can clearly imagine how her face is bright and pleased. In other words, the name card can not be a special staff for me if it was a present from any other person. So the person who gave you the special gift can be the reason why you can not forget that present.
In conclusion,from above reasons, I definitely believe that the strong stories along the gift do not let you forget the day or moment or emotion you received it. And the gift itself become something you can not erase from your mind.
