List your favorite Christmas present!

I know many received some great gifts from Santa, and would like to read about them. I myself got some cologne and my favorite...a Craftsman Tap and Die set!

I got some hand wrenches with the built in sockets. Also a new dart board. That was about the totality of my gifts. As you get older and older I find my gift pile is less and the children is more but it's worth it.

I did something unique for the kids this year. I bought them a few neat presents, and when it was all done, their piles were somewhat small. I then gave each kid an old glass ornament and told them to smash it with a hammer. They did not know I had previously stuffed a bunch of new $50 bills in them. It was like a Greek festival with "OMPAH" yelling out across the room!

I got a few nice books, DVD's and CD's, some gag gifts from the boys and a pretty nice lambswool sweater that I'm becoming quite fond of.

Keith, you are right, but eventually things turn interesting when the kids get old enough to decide to go out and buy some presents for you

I got a kindle - definitely my favorite! The rest of the presents under the tree were for my 2 kids, of course. They're ecstatic!

If you're trying to get rid of those $50s you can send them to me...

The best present is the smile on my kids faces as they open the Wii this Christmas.

Also the best present was helping out a person who got injured at work then her car broke down and we donated money to help her out. She doesn't make much and works her butt off. Then got a rotater cuff injury and was out of work for 3 or 4 weeks. Only getting workmans comp which is nothing.
