    As a kid, an HO train set was the best. Any cloths I got were always the worst.

    Best - Xmas 1984. Castle Greyskull. I still have it. Probably home to spiders now.

    Worst - Xmas 1990. A Casio keyboard. I didn't ask for it, didn't want it, and couldn't play it.

    When I was a freshman in college, I finished the first semester with no guaranteed housing for January.

    My mother bought me a tent for Christmas.

    Yeah, that's the level of compassion in my family. My mother had no room in her home for me, but she wanted to make sure if I slept outdoors in the winter, that I had a tent.

    I threw out the tent the same day and got my housing straightened out as soon as the office opened after Christmas. Somehow it's not funny to tease your family when they have nowhere to live.

    As an adult My best was my engagement ring from ex husband..At the time I loved him madly and was so happy and surprised. It was simple and pretty and when we had sex the next time I did NOT look at my ring at all, just him, unlike someone else we know.

    As a kid, my favorite gift was getting a pair of bikini underwear and matching fingernail polish from my brothers fiancee.. I loved it. I was in my regular girl underwear stage...I felt so glamorous..My mother was pissed. She thought I should not wear them because of men..I guess she thought they all had X ray vision..:giggle:


    Clothes from my mother were the worst..polyester, irregular..UGHHHHH.. Loved my mom, but those clothes!! Told her to stop after I turned twelve..

    Worst gift was from my mom - a 2nd hand puzzle (still with a price tag of 10 cents from the flea market). Several pieces were missing and it smelled quite musty.

    Best gift is when the gf and I don't exchange gifts and we go on a little trip instead.

    I once got a winter coat for Christmas when I was 14. It was a factory second, and it didn't have a zipper or any buttons. You had to hold the coat closed with your hand.

    My family was upper middle class and we kids lived like urchins. My Dad owned six sports cars while buying me a winter coat with no zipper. None of his kids talk to him these days, but I'm sure he still has his inventory of sports cars.


    I'll try and think of my "best" Christmas gift. There are not many candidates, sadly.

    My WORST gift was a Lionel train set because my dad basically bought it for himself. As a girl, I wasn't into trains much. I still have it though and my husband treats it like gold.

    My best gift was the Barbie Dream House. I loved that thing.

    Worst gift was probably a bunch of soccer gear when I was a kid. (never played soccer and didn't plan on it)



    Best is always money

    I once participated in a Yankee swap, I grabbed the biggest box there, unwrapped it: dildo.

    Traded it for a pizza stone... The last person to go got another dildo and took my pizza stone... Fuckers

    My worst gift was a gift certificate to a store that went belly up literally the day before Christmas and refused to honor it.

    That's quite a range of gifts. From wood to Hollywood.

    My range was more like from mud to compost.

    Childhood and adulthood are so different.
