  • Probably getting my N64…was a monumental moment!

  • Matthew Marshall

    My favorite gift of all time will be the Lamborghini I buy myself in a few years.

  • My favorite is my most memorable. When I was about 5, I remember my brother and I waking up early on Christmas morning. My brother ran down the hall straight to the tree, which of course had a massive pile of gifts for us. However, I noticed there were these multi-colored ribbons leading from our bedroom to the formal dining room. (Which had been turned into our playroom.) Curious, I followed the ribbons to an extremely large, and extremely cool to me, cardboard fort! My dad had somehow amassed a huge amount of cardboard, and managed to construct one of the most awesome surprise presents I’ve ever received.

  • My OG droid, its a faithful little sucker..

    The (adjective) Christmas present I ever (verb) was a Green Machine. Unlike the Big Wheel, which all the other (plural_noun) had, the Green Machine had (adjective) seating and (verb_ending_in_ing) in the back. I didn’t need a hand (noun) to (verb) out, and I could do (past_tense_verb) around all of the other (plural_noun) . I will never ever forget my (adjective) Machine!

    My favorite gift of all time is my mother. She brought me into this world, cared for and nurtured me, she is my biggest source of encouragement and happiness, she raised me and turned me into the wonderful man I am today (and she was also the person who, though indirectly, got me to become and Android enthusiast. And as much as I can be a pain in the ass sometimes, both behaviorally and academically, I know my mother loves me, and I love her.

    And to all others out there, your mother is your best friend. She may not be able to help with anything, but I can guarantee you mothers are your number 1 person to rely on for advice, help, have a laugh, or anything. There is no other woman in the world that you can put more trust or love in that your mom.

    Sorry Droid-Life for the lengthy comment, just got caught up in the moment.. Had to express my love for my mother.

    Keeping on the Nintendo theme, when our family got a Nintendo every kid asked for a game for xmas. I asked for Duck Hunt.  It was sold out – so they just picked a random game – Rygar.  Turned out it was actually a pretty cool game.  So I will go with Rygar for my favorite gift.

    For Christmas in ’88 I got the MRC Tamiya 1/12 scale Midnight Pumpkin. I stayed up all night putting it together since all the good R/C stuff had to be put together back then. I took it out and ran it in the snow and had a blast for about 5 minutes. I hit a snow drift and since it was cold all 4 body mounts snapped off. I was devastated. Of course I went ahead and ran it without the body all day and ended up needing to get a new speed controller and servo but it was worth it. Best present I ever received and the memories of it for the rest of my life.

    i had to undergo cardiovascular surgery which was a traumatizing experience. 
    That fear of not waking up again, unable to apologize or tell someone something, 
    and isolating yourself(i know sounds stupid haha)  was tough. 
    I do have a surgery scar on my chest, it is not attractive but when i see it i’m able to think that 
    “if i was able to go through this,i’m also able to push my daily limits beyond what i was at”.

  • Best gift has got to be a new set of golf clubs that i was desperately in need of.

  • I had to think hard about this.  I’m going to say that my favorite received gift of all time was the NES Master System I got the year it was released.  That console, more than any other, provided more fun and entertainment to more people than anything else I think I’ve ever received.  I ended up giving it to the family of my best friend several years later after their mom died of cancer.  Single dad, 6 sons + pets, their house was chaotic.  My NES + peripherals + accumulated games helped that out.

    One of the most memorable christmas presents ever ever actualy was when i as about 10. I came from a low income single parent enviornment, where it was pretty normal for us to get a bunch of nondescript (generic) presents from the Salvation Army. Well like any kid in the early 80s i wanted something Star Wars.. but never expected anything.. cause it just never happened. That Christmas however was diffrent… my Mother woke me at like 2am to let me open 1 gift. I dont know where it came from.. but it was in fact a Real Brand name Star Wars space ship.. dont recall which one it was now. but the look on my mothers face that night was the true gift for me.

    For me though, spending time with my family and getting drunk with my high school buddies home for the holidays is the best gift.

    The space shuttle Lego set, so awesome.

  • Mikehen08

    Greatest gift would have to be my first car which I had no idea I was getting until it was at my house when I got home from work. At the time it was my dream car. But I ended up paying for it so I guess it wasn’t a “gift” after all.

    My favorite Christmas was from way back before anyone I knew had cell phones or computers. My birthday is 2 days after Chrstmas, and one year my folks combined the wto to get me a Super Scope for my Nintendo. It was the coolest electronic ever to a kid my age back then. Funny how an affinity for electronic toys carries into our adulthood…

    I couldn’t decide between snark or sap, so I went sap.  My dog Muffin when I was 6 had to be one of the best presents ever.

  • DroidVoid

    Went to go visit my father in Connecticut who was dying. After that went to my grandmothers house and as I was leaving with my mother my grandmother ran out the house saying I almost forgot to give this to you.  Your father really wanted you to have it.  It was the Super Nintendo I had only told him about when he asked what I wanted.  I never thought that I was actually going to get it. Best gift because of he REALLY went out of his way when he definitely did not have to and that’s what meant most to me even more than the gift itself.

  • My favorite present wasn’t delivered on time for Christmas, but was close enough for me – my son.  🙂

    My favorite gift was my precious sweet daughter, and son.

  • My favorite gift ever was a train set my dad gave me when I was 5 years old.

  • A two pound wheel of aged cheddar cheese….I was stationed in Korea on a small base. Friend there with me had a short wave set. Back then only way to call home for Xmas was thru MARS station with a hugh waiting list for a 5 min. call. We got permission to help using my friend’s SW set…connect to another SW in the US and have the transmition relayed by phone. What service the SW operators did is another story – getting back to the cheese: The cheese was a Xmas gift to me from home. Our houseboy scrounged some eggs (I was afraid to ask where) and I made 1 egg cheese omolets on our kerosene heater made from a 30 gal. drum. Each man in line for his call home got one until I ran out of cheese. I was so busy cooking I never got a shot at one!! Truth was I didn’t mind that much. The guys in our line got a better deal than the MARS station offered; 15 minutes to talk to folks at home and a fresh egg with cheese,  😉

    My favorite gift of all time was when I was 8 and my dad bought me an actual Red Rider BB gun. I spent the next few days shooting trees, cups, anything I could find in my yard. My parents even would yell “youll shoot your eye out” while I was doing it. I still have the bb gun in my closet and bring it out every now and then just for fun.

  • While neither were at Christmastime, the greatest gift(s) would be: The love of my life and my two daughters.

  • Mason Lammers

    I was a bachelor in college and had a trusty pet named Bocephus (Irish Terrier).  I had been training him to be out in my apartment unattended, and until this day had no problems.  This Christmas Eve I came home and found him on the floor sick.  After further investigation, I found out he had ate about three dozen condoms from a bag under my bed.  Latex is obviously not good for a pet so I knew he would either fart cute baloon animals or need to see a vet.  I called a at home vet, found out to give him some peroxide which made him puke out everything inside, and the gift of Christmas gave me my trusty pup back!

  • Commodore 64 on Christmas.  Man that thing was dope!

  • Favorite gift of all time, definitely my OG Nintendo, way back in the day.  8 bits of glory…

    My grand father built me a push car when I was just 5yrs old. He was amazing at building quality things by hand. I still have a several pieces to this day. This is and old style bodied car he would walk behind and push me down our street while I steered. I have a picture of of he and I with the push car. The ironic part is a family Charger was in the picture background. I was later given that car by my grandparents as well.

  • Freshgeardude

    My first BMX bike.  I was so happy!  I was just a kid and the bike was expensive and I felt very fortunate!  Best parents ever!

  • Sean Maloney

    The best gift ever, was my first PC upgrade.  One Christmas, my dad bought me a Sound Blaster 1.0 (brand new at the time) and a Hercules Graphics Card which catapulted me into the world of 80×25 character resolution and 720×348 graphics resolution (monochrome of course).

    He made me read the instructions and figure out how to install (and use) them myself.  This sense of accomplishment led me to try my hand at programming in Basic.  Just like installing hardware, writing simple programs was far easier than I thought.  I started writing my own games in 3rd grade and by 5th grade, I had a full color top-scrolling space shooter, complete with a ‘3D’ starfield simulation in the background.
    Now I write software for a living and love my work.  Thanks dad!

    My favorite gift I ever received was the gift of holy spirit from Jesus Christ my Lord.  This is a gift that keeps on giving.  It is what guarantees eternal life and power in this life.  Those who acknowledged Jesus Christ as Lord and believe God raised him from the dead can do the works he did and greater because he goes to his Father.  God bless and a Merry Christmas!

  • andystolemywallet

    My favorite gift of all time (so far) is the Nintendo 64 I got for Christmas. I was ecstatic when someone spilled the beans to me that we were getting one. I was cheering, jumping up and down. If we had a video camera, I would’ve been a second N64 kid (except I was wearing normal clothes). My sisters scolded me for doing that and I felt bad about my behavior for years. But I was a kid and it was my first console. I saw a neighbor kid get enjoyment from squeezing a mouse to death under his front tire; wonder what they’d say about him.

  • jason

    Gift of salvation. Life is meaningless without Jesus.

    Best gift title would probably just be the time when my wife made me a shark sleeping bag. It has fins and is really poofy but its teeth are the zipper so that when I closed it, makes it a mummy bag so the shark could eat me in one bite. Best night sleep camping ever.

When I opened the last box, he was sitting behind me & said, “Maybe you should try this box.” I turned around and he had a small red box with a red ribbon on it. When I opened it I found a princess cut engagement ring in it. He proposed to me sitting at the base of our “Charlie Brown” Christmas tree! By far that is still the best Christmas present and best decision I have ever made!

  • The best gift I have ever received was when my girlfriend told me she WASN’T pregnant!

  • MoHous

    I would have to go with Sirius Satellite radio several years ago.  I guess my girlfriend was tired of hearing me complain about hearing one song in the 30 minutes my commute every morning.

    My favorite gift ever was the Atari 2600 my brother and I received when I was a kid. I know I am dating myself here, but at the time that was THE gift to get, and it set in motion my life-long love of video games…

    The greatest gift I’ve ever received was a matel tow truck on my third birthday. It was the only gift I recall that forced me to quit everything I was doing at my party and play with it. Even a magician was doing stuff and i could of cared less. I wanted to play with that truck. I bought something similar for my 2 and a half year old. We’ll see what his reaction is on Christmas morning.

    My mom needs a tablet and I lack the funds to buy her one 😐

  • The best present of all time has to be the original Power Rangers Megazord

  • My favorite received gift of all time is the pow pow power wheels I received on my 5th birthday!

  • Best gift to be was a toy Semi Truck and Trailer back when i was probably 6-7yrs old. I had found it a week before and asked my dad whose it was and he told me not mine. But then later that day i was singing Rodolph the Red Nosed Reindeer song. At the part where it was “as they shouted out with glee” where glee was i was saying some other word. I dont remember the word, anyways my dad said that i was wrong and I said he was wrong. Then he said well if i was right i could have the truck, if i was wrong I couldnt. So we waited by the radio and the song finally played and sure enough I was wrong. I was sad. But then later that week at my birthday party (dec 15th, yes today is my birthday lol) when I opened up my presents there it was the semi truck and tracker. Then remember looking at my dad and he just smiled and winked at me. I still have that truck, a little worn over the years but still.

  • It would have to be X-files the PC game I recieved from my parents for Christmas. Unfortunately I couldn’t play it and spent 3 months just admiring the box art as my lame PC was unable to meet the minimum requirements to run it…Not to mention it didn’t even have a cdrom drive. =s

  • favorite gift of all time so far definitely had to be my droid x, cant wait for the galaxy nexus to be my next one

    My favorite gift was the Lego Truck stop when I was 9.

  • Nick

    Other than my Galaxy Nexus, which was an early Christmas present this year from my wife, I’d have to say the Sega Genesis.  I had a Nintendo, but this opened me up to Madden, which was just outstanding.  Nothing like taking a punt to the house with Rod Woodson, which was so easy to do by the way.

  • The plastic punching robots was a huge hit when you’re like 5 years old.  They seriously need a plastic punching robot game on Android.  Developers?

  • an original Nintendo with Tetris and Bubble Bobble when I was young

  • Really the best present for me is to see my 3 young kids faces opening there presents. 

  • A massive bucket of Legos. well it looked massive when i was 4. It was one of the square buckets with the 2×2 stud top.

    I’m Jewish, so one of the holiday traditions we had growing up was shaking the presents.  There was one box that I, for the life of me, could not figure out.  It was fairly light, maybe a couple of pounds at best, and was making WAY too much noise – like lots and lots of little pieces.

    What was it?  A Blackhawks hat, and a box of mac and cheese to throw me off the trail. 🙂

  • Goblueboy

    My most (realistic) favorite gift I got was getting a gameboy for christmas. Sparked the gamer in me for the rest of my life.

  • KK

    Don’t have a favorite (anything USC is good though) that stands out but I have a terrible one.  I got a plastic bucket with nasty homemade cookies in it.  That person was so cheap with other people even though she had money.

  • Sean Rector

    The Apple ][+ I got in 1982.  It’s why I’m in IT today.

  • Susyflower

    When I first starting getting into NASCAR and Winston Cup Racing I was 15 and wanted NASCAR the game for my PC.  It was DOS based game (remember those?) and was super expensive at the time.  “Santa” got it for me that Christmas and I was so happy!  Definitely the best present ever because it was something I really really wanted and would’ve been disappointed if I hadn’t received it.

  • Abbie Rosario

    I had received a blu-ray from my wife as she was thinking since we had an up-converting DVD player, that it would play blu-rays also.  She did not seem to understand the true meaning of the player, so after I opened the gift and was confused, she told me that my other gift would be the PS3 we would be getting the following day.
