I can' t think of my 'best gift"... I never really liked getting things for Christmas...
 
... I was extreamly fortunate growing up, and I always felt like the rich kid at Christmas... I dunno.. hard to describe...
 
... I like it best when someone takes whatever money they intended to spend on me, and puts it toward a family that needs it more than I do...

We were very poor and didn’t get much at Christmas. One year my older brother and I got a pair of socks. Yeah. a pair, as in one. Each day we’d trade off. One day I’d wear the left sock and he’d wear the right. Then the next day we’d trade. That way we only got frost bite in one foot at a time.
The Christmas I remember best was the year I got my own stick. Ya see, my older brother always got the new stuff and I ended up with his hand-me-downs. Dad always gave him the new stick and I got the old one. Well, 1951 was a very good year for me. Dad decided I was big enough to have a "new" stick. Dang! It was wonderful. First thing I did was poke my brother in the eye with my new stick. When he grabbed his eye he let go of his stick and I swiped it from him.
Aaaahhh, 1951 was a very good year. Thanks for asking.  Roll Eyes

One year dad bought me the train in the toy shop window.  Great gift. It took me 40 years of therapy to get over that.

When I was 6.....my Dad gave me my first record player.  I always loved music.  He gave me a couple of Jimmy Dickens records that Christmas too.
 
That was 50 years ago........Seems like it was yesterday.

It wasn't a Christmas gift, but my most treasured gift is an E.T. doll I got from my mom while I was living in a foster home at the age of 9.

A video from my daughter, with clips of pics of all of us and music in the backround.  Lots of great songs and words on the screen that I will treasure forever.  It spoke of love.  Still playing it !!!!!!!!!

The christmas when all of my extended family were together...  I am an only child and to spend time with my aunts and uncle...
 
My family is is EXTREMELY musical...  When we sing happy birthday it sounds like a major musical event.
 
Christmas was wonderful then..  The sing and the music was incredible...
 
Now every on now has their own families...  Christmas has changed...  I have m y own family now, and there are wonderful things about Christmas, but it is different.

When I was little the best gift was when I was 7 I got a 13 inch b&w TV.  My best friend would bring over her ATTARI (sp?) and we'd play for hours.  Oh how technology has changed.

The Heathkit Ocyliscope I recieved at age 12 greatly expanded my range of experiments. I still remember them fondly. The neighborhood kids probably don't.

Hi!
 
I think that the best gift I ever got when I was a kid was My Little Pony castle. Me and my cousin got them on the same year and we had so much fun playing with them together.  
 
After that my best gifts have been books, cds and videos. This year I wish for CH free Christmas.
 
Wishing CH-free holidays,

Awwww....loved reading the responses! Cry
 
I don't remember much about my childhood, or anything special (presents) at Christmas.  Don't know why.  Surely there was something......
 
Wasn't a present, but I do remember every year we went out as a  family, Grandma, Grandpa, my mom and me, in the car, and drove around the nice neighborhoods to look at Christmas lights.  I was pretty small.  That is something that has stuck in my mind and I still love to do, and will do with my family now.
 
I think this year might be my favorite Christmas present, if it is what I think it is....my hubby is getting me something....
 
I didn't ask for
Probably should have picked out myself
The gift that keeps on giving
Will last a long time depending on how I take care of it
Can't hide it, or bring it in the house without me seeing it
He has to pick it up on Christmas Eve and will be giving it to me when he gets home
hhhhmmmmmmm....... Huh Huh Undecided Undecided
 
I hope it is what I think it is.......I think......
 
Keep the stories coming!
Pain free Christmas season to all of you!

My best christmas present was one Christmas in my youth when my folks had me walk outside and I found a palomino mare tied to the clothes line with a bow on top of the saddle.  Her name was Bandy and we won lots of ribbons and buckles in her days.
 
She was so much better than Lady, the shetland that kept running me under a mesquite tree to knock me off.
 
Happy Holidays

An organ.  You plugged it in - came with sheet music.  I was about 8.  Spent hours and hours playing.
 
Some time after, my dad came home drunk and smashed it with a golf club.
