It can be quite difficult to find the right gift to give to someone - something that is sentimental that one can keep for a long time.

Arthur was trying to find something personal and sentimental for Brian’s 70th birthday. It was a big day and Arthur wanted to put together something memorable.  So Arthur decided to give Brian a portrait he had painted.

Arthur is a talented artist and likes to get creative and the idea of a portrait seemed like a perfect gift for a special day. The drawing was of Brian as an air force pilot, kneeling in front of the fighter jet. The drawing contained pain staking detail and it took a lot of effort.

Andrew felt a sense of achievement, but what made it rewarding for him was seeing how happy Brian was with his gift.
