If & how to leave things to friends in your will?

I am rewriting my will. I would love some advice on whether
to "leave things" to (close)
Small things such as:
- A rare CD by an artist we both love.
- A particular book I know they've always coveted.
- Some soft toy that has some meaning between us.
Entirely personal / subjective / anecdotal advice is fine or even preferred.
Have you been the recipient of something like this? How did it make you feel? 2 weeks later, 2 months later, 2 years later?
If you haven't, how do you think you would feel? Moved? Sad? Disturbed?
(NB I have family members who'd execute my wishes so I needn't be concerned about the practicalities. but if you think it's still not worth the hassle then I want to hear that too)
PS. This is anonymous because some of my friends read AskMe. Which could be awkward, esp. if they end up not being one of the recipients.
