This is my first post. As a 20 something, there is one piece I received from my father I will always keep and use. It is a simple, minimalist, sterling silver money clip. I firmly believe a nice, understated money clip is something you'll hang on to for the rest of your life, even when you're moving through cars, homes, cameras, and the other nice things suggested on this list. That being said, I wish I had a nice, cheap camera (such as the Pentax K-X.) Even now, I wish I had more pictures to look back on. This item, I suppose, is more about documenting your life experiences and good times.
