    This was SO VERY HARD!!!! I was torn between Claire's silver ring because of everything it meant to Jamie. Rushing to spend his share of the taxes on a ring for his new bride, and especially having it engraved with those perfect words of love. He wanted to bestow on her a symbol of his love and devotion and claim her as his own.

    But Jamie giving Fergus his own last name after all these years where he was indeed, the father Fergus never had, was so heartwarming and unexpected.

    Loved Ellen's pearl necklace and the rosary to Willie. All the choices were wonderful but I had to finally vote for Fergus. It became complete when I remembered the words Fergus later tells Jamie about who he had always hoped he was the son of. The two of them have had a father/son relationship for over 20 years and Jamie loves him as much as he loves his natural born children. To acknowledge him as his own through the gifting of the Fraser name was marvelous.

    Absolutely the medicine box. Shows how much Jamie values Claire because he knows how important her medical work is to her.

    As an animal lover, I chose Adso (and Rollo), just to vote. Truth be told, there is no way to pick just one favorite gift. As Linda D. above mentioned, the whole story from beginning to eventual end.......this gift from Diana Gabaldon will be a favorite til I breath no more.

    Furgus's last name. It changed his(and his descendants) identity. A belonging. A history, genealogy. His branch now stems from two roots. Rootstock is French and his descendants French and Scottish(three ways, wife,wife is daughter of Jamie and Jaimie's gift of name. In Hawaii there are formal and casual Hanai (adopted).Forever changed.

    I voted for the wedding ring, but I also really liked when Jamie gave Claire the poison ivy bouquet. It was so funny seeing Jamie feel inadequate compared to Roger because he had never given Claire flowers. Ha!

    I melted when Jamie have Fergus his name, but then most of what Jamie does melts me. Very hard choice, but bringing Fergus fully into the Clan had deep long term meaning to him!

    Actually, it's the words on the pages of the books...the intimaticies between J&C...both spoken and unspoken. The whole story from start to.....eventual finish.

    Hard choices. Also loved the vrooms Roger made for the children, but the pearl necklace Jamie gave Claire on their wedding night - has to be number 1.

    hands down the silver ring - given so early in their relationship, but with such sentiment and depth of feeling. And helps her return to him by being the proof for Roger to believe her story and help her.

    They were all great gifts and I could add the boar tusks Murtagh gave Ellen and the original gift of the freshwater pearls given by Marcus MacRannoch to Ellen. What a popular gal! But ultimately what melts my heart every time is reading about Jamie stopping Claire's rant to give her that beautiful ring and later her discovering the romantic inscription. Sigh...

    They were all great choices. Hard to decide.
