    Even though at the time it didn’t feel like such a great thing – my son was a real Christmas surprise present! He was born a week before Christmas 8 years ago.

    The surprise and “not-so-great” part was that he was not due until February, which made him 8 weeks early and he had to stay in the hospital until mid-January.

    The long-story-short version is that he is a great kid, and he has constantly amazed us at his progress and is a smart, talented, and very athletically inclined kid!!

  108. vanessa paine says:

    Since my dog tore her acl a few weeks ago we were going to have to put her down because we didn’t have money to pay for her surgery so the best gift was having half of the 1300 surgery paid for and having our dog alive and home with us and our kids even if it meant giving up gifts this year

  109. One last Xmas with my beloved Grandfather before he passed away, a month later. We packed so much love into those moments because we knew they were the last Xmas memories we were ever going to share with him. I will always be grateful we had that time as a family.

  123. Elly says:

    The best gift I can remember was when I was seven years old. My parents had big fight and mom went to grandma’s house for few days. Dad acted as if nothing was wrong but I was missing mom so much that I secretly contacted grandma to reach mom. When I finally got the number to reach her, I quietly inserted coins to make the call. After long wait of dial, I heard mom’s voice. I talked to mom for an hour until dad returned from work. Mom and I promised to meet the next day. When I saw her next day, the tears from both of our eyes kept rolling down our cheeks.

    Then she handed a ugly looking monkey and said “Thanks for being such a good girl. I love you.”
    I knew this doll and I will be best friends forever.

    Everyone who saw the doll didn’t understand why a girl would be sleeping with such an ugly doll.
    But since that stuff animal laid beside me every night, I could sleep soundly.

    My parents got together after long discussion and my influence.
    When I immigrated to Canada and shipment of our household stuff arrived a month later, I couldn’t find the monkey. I was extremely sad for days and weeks but I just knew that it was time for me to grow up as a woman and leave my childhood in my heart and move on.

    I still miss my monkey and wonder where it went ๐Ÿ™

    Thanks for reading ^_^

    A handmade scrapbook from two friends ๐Ÿ™‚

  144. RaeDavenport says:

    A DSLR camera which my BF knew I’d been eyeing for over a year. What made it quite special is that I knew he could barely afford it. He really wanted to please me with that present. So its value is more in his affection for me than the object itself.

  145. RaeDavenport says:

    I should mention that that camera is totally outdated now – 3 Megapixels and few features compared to the ones out now. I’d love this one in the contest. The Nikon Coolpix L20 looks great – fully loaded.

  171. sUSAN CHIMIUK says:

    My dog Zak!

  172. Bradley says:

    The best present was a color TV set. At the time we only had a black and white set. It was great watching shows in color; Gilligan’s Island, Space 1999, Planet of the Apes TV series, Muppet Show, etc. It was more of a present for the whole family than to myself.

  178. KidPiglet says:

    The best present I ever received was the original Gameboy I received from my sister when I was 11 years old (31 now). I still remember checking the weekly flyers (K-Mart, Zellers, Woolco & Canadian Tire) for months leading up to Christmas, clipping out the lowest prices on this item and posting it on the fridge just to drop hints to family members ๐Ÿ™‚ (The lowest price I found btw was $87 @ Canadian Tire – so it wasn’t necessarily an easily affordable gift, especially with our finances.) When my sister got it for me, I was SOOOOOOO HAPPY!! It was a special type of excitement that only comes after months and months of wishing, anticipation (and begging :), and I think only possibly to truly understand when you are a kid. Of course reflecting back on it, I do see how spoiled I was, so every year I always try to give back and get gifts for everyone in the family – mainly the younger kids, and hope to recreate the special feeling that was given to me that year.

  179. John C says:

    A new laptop

  180. Brett says:

    GI Joe Base!!

  181. Sandra Schultz says:

    I got a top of the line Garmin GPS for my van! It’s great – especially since I drive all over the city with my kids. And this time I won’t get lost in Detroit!!!! And it has lifetime map uploads for free!

    Very accurate.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    The best present I ever received came from my mother 15 years ago. We had been out shopping for something for a family member’s birthday and I fell in love with an antique carved chest that was quite expensive but gorgeous. Clearly, she saw me drooling over it because at some point she purchased it for me. It was and is beautiful and now serves as my ‘coffee table’ with a cut piece of glass atop. I love it just as much as I did back then and it has even more sentimental value now as my mother suffers with severe dementia now and will never again remember how much I loved that chest…:-( Makes my heart break but it also makes me appreciate it more…Perhaps I may win and be able to take a nice photo of it for her and see if by chance she may remember. I sure miss her…Thanks for the opportunity to win such great prizes! Tis’ very generous of you! *~Happy New Year~*
