    At this time of year, it's easy to get overwhelmed by the endless flyers and non-stop commercials - all of them telling you that you need to spend money on gifts that show just how much you care. But a truly meaningful gift is so much more than something you got a really good deal on. On this Now or Never, meet people who are tapping into their hearts to find the perfect gift - and be there for the intense moment when they're finally unwrapped. Instead of presents, a woman sends deeply personal letters to her loved ones. A 10-year-old boy collects dozens of prosthetics to send to those who need them. A grieving mother makes handmade bracelets for others who are mourning loved ones. An anonymous listener donates a bed to Vivian, a woman haunted by dreams of her past and who craved a good night's sleep. Ify and Trevor hold their own heartfelt host gift exchange. Plus, we give the gift of closure to children's entertainer Fred Penner, by solving the mystery of his missing set.
