During the holidays, we often talk about the love, romance and nostalgia of seeing old family and friends and celebrating with new family and friends.


The gift giving of course becomes a major focus as we stress over what is appropriate, what will be appreciated and how best we can show the people that we care about how we much we care about them.


We watch celebrity couples spend hundreds of thousands on cars and watches that most of couldn’t afford to even consider purchasing, because the love we have doesn’t translate to our actual bank accounts.


The extravagance often overshadows the true meaning of the holidays, kids want gadgets, adults want gift cards and strong eggnog, couples struggle the most with what to get each other, often forgetting that it is the thought that counts.


However, one young woman; Nia Evans did not forget the old adage, the amount of thought she put into this gift created a priceless moment for her boyfriend; Obinna Victor.


Obinna had been writing anime stories since he was 15 years old, it was his passion and pastime, it was how he expressed his creativity.  Knowing that he loved this, she used her wits to find an artist to illustrate his stories and surprised him with a copy on Christmas.


The story he’d been writing is called “Nirvana”, getting the sketches are the steps toward building his dream, to further support, they’ve created a GoFundMe together.


This isn’t just a story about a wonderful girlfriend doing something amazing, it’s a story that that also highlights young black people creating their own stories of all types and kinds.


Check out the video below, for his tearful reaction. This is the true meaning of its’ the thought that counts.
