The best I've ever received (as a kid) was an electric guitar. I didn't think my parents could afford it, but I asked for it anyway. All Christmas morning they tricked me by giving me other gifts, and then finally they pulled out an electric guitar. I was THRILLED!
As an adult, the best gift I've received is a pellet grill, which I'm currently using right now to smoke a turkey. It gets a TON of use, more than any other gift I've received.
AMD Ryzen™ 5 7600X CPU that I'm going to win now 🙂
Jokes aside, RX 6750 XT my wife got me for birthday earlier this year. I can't really recall much of the earlier gifts.
Nothing. After years of giving nothing I'm finally receiving nothing. There's too much mindless consumerism in the world. We are all going to suffocate on useless junk. And people spend way beyond their means causing so much stress and heartache.
A Fitbit as a holiday present from my significant other. Wore it every day for a few years, such an awesome reminder that someone cares for your well being. Still have it after 6 years and I don't have bad days when I wear it 🙂
The best Christmas gift was the 'Big Bruiser' tow truck toy (1960's era) that used a lot of D cell batteries to power the horn and lights. I loved that truck.
The best Christmas gift I ever received was my GameCube. It wasn't the GameCube that made it so special though, it was the countless hours my Mom and I spent playing Animal Crossing together. It started with Animal Crossing on the GameCube, then it moved to AC: City Folk (Wii) and later to AC: New Horizons (Switch). It was the connection with my mom that made it so great.
I've been given tons a nice gifts over the years, but the birth of my youngest son a few weeks prior was the best one I've ever received. It was a troubled pregnancy, but it all ended up just perfect in the end.
I'm so happy to share this story with the community. So being a PC enthusiast it's hard for our 'loved ones' to really understand our particular 'craft/niche' most of the time, they're unaware of the brands, terminologies, etc.
I had recently upgraded my PC, but could not purchase the most 'important' item which is the graphics card, my mother, the sweetheart that she is was able to gift me the money I needed for the component, which at the time was the Radeon 390X, ironically I never shared that I needed that card, but somehow she knew. Purchasing the card at the time came with 3 games if I can recall so that Christmas was well spent!
Honestly, the best gift I ever received is being a father. To be able to watch my son be able to open presents with a smile on his face. It's hard to put a price on that. I am grateful for that. It also doesn't hurt that we all game in the house so we'll spend Christmas beating each other up on the switch or playing valheim. Happy Yule everyone!
The best Christmas gift I ever got was probably the Nintendo Entertainment system back in 1986. It was for both my brother and me but it's had me hooked on games ever since.
Definitely the Xbox 360. That was such a big upgrade over the og xbox with Guitar hero :guitar:. I spend all my time on that thing, couldn’t wait to get out of class during the day. I woke up at 6:00 to play before school
My dad & mom bought me a complete set of ice hockey goalie equipment one Christmas when I was 16, first time with new goalie equipment since I was five. Used equipment every year until this one. I was shocked, and cried with joy. I'm still goaltending twice a week all winter every year, 62 years later and loving the game.
Late 1960's, Dad sold a couple of loads of hay to a doctor and basically traded it for a nice used billiard table. Our home became the community center for that small town.
