I think that's for the recipient/s to judge, so not sure.

This one's difficult. I stress a lot about gift giving, but my parents say my presence is the best present I can give them

I got my best friend the Assassin's Creed 3 Collector's Edition he wanted!

I don't know but i gave pretty nice gifts to my wife and kid.

Maybe family happiness, at least i feel this is best gift they have given me

Adept I

Everybody loves money, so that?!

Giving money is an easy way to gift. It requires no thought, but I do agree, since people are sooooo picky or won't tell you what they want.

Best gift/gifts I ever gave someone was a few years ago when I was working for EB Games. I was able to buy one of each of the new consoles XBox Series X and Playstation 5. I gave the Xbox to my brother and Playstation 5 to my sister.

Not applicable

Gave my girlfriend an iMac 24" (For this Christmas, so she gets is on Sunday) as she has never had a desktop computer, she only had a 12" Mac Book.


The best gift I ever got was a Son 👨‍👦

Sorry, I meant the best gift I ever gave was a kid. 👨‍👦

I recommend that you just update the original Post ... it keep things from being confusing.  🙂


I don’t know.  

Adept I

I'm awful at making gifts...

Adept I

Very tough one! One of the best I’ve given is maybe a block building set for my son, simply because we have spent so many hours making all sorts of shapes and towers etc and we still get it out now and again!

Adept I

Got a friend of mine a rare limited edition that was sold out everywhere. He couldn't believe he got his hands on one after all.

Adept I

Judging by their reaction, it was the PlayStation 4 for my son.

Adept I

Buddy's first car, I guess. Didn't pay in full, but helped him out with the missing cash.

Adept II

I'm not 100% sure it was the best gift, but they sure liked it. A trip to the Dominican Republic. 

Adept II

The best gift I can give to anyone is to avoid them because I'm so toxic.

I think YOU are probably the best gift a LOT of people could ask for!! 

Adept I

Bought a hamster for my nephew. He was as happy as could be and the parents were okay with it, too.


The best gift i ever gave was an AMD PC build to my nephew for Christmas. He even helped us build it and enjoyed learning how to do it 🙂

I can't think of an exact gift but my brother really liked the Xbox 360 I got him when they were new.

I went to different stores in the city to get all the Funko pops for a collection my wife wanted. It was available online but for inflated prices and she couldn't find them anywhere. When she got them for Christmas she cried and was super thankful. 

Adept I

The best I gave to my mom. Was a sock reindeer I made in 1st grade. She still has it out every year and I remember at that age how much effort I put into it.

Adept I

A copy of World of Warcraft I've given to a friend might be both the best and worst gift he's ever received.

Adept III

A hand decorated teddy bear

An AMD gift pack including:

1 MSI Thunderbird Plush

1 AMD Red Team Dog Tag

1 AMD Sticker sheet

1 iBUYPOWER Water Bottle,

1 iBUYPOWER Desk Mat

1 ASUS ROG T-Shirt (L)

1 The Callisto Protocol game code

They loved it. If only I could receive such a unique and amazing gift(s).

Best present ever ... hmmm, this is going to be hard and it is a tie in this case!

#1a.  I built a Train Table for my son when he was 3 years old.  He came down the stairs, and saw it running over to it, and he built trains all day long.  Through breakfast, through lunch, and through supper (he had some quick snacks) and then he laid down by it with a pillow and crashed.  Dad scored big on that one!  It was engineered so that I (225+ pounds) could stand on it, it had carriage bolts, 4x4 posts, and 3/4 inch plywood.  It was the bomb!  ‌‌💣 

#1b.  I bought an Alienware gaming laptop for my son for getting over 1,100 Advanced Reader (AR) reading points for 5th grade graduation.  It had a 17" screen, dual video cards, and a "power brick" that was bigger than an actual brick!  We upgraded the HDD to an SSD and it was a screamer for the day, 11 years ago. He was a major force from then on out at all LAN/sleepover parties.  💪

I got my mother a mothers ring with real stones of the birth month of us 4 kids, of course which i'm 60 now but she still has it, and cried when i gave it to her

Adept II

I gave my wife a Jack Russell Terrier puppy.  Amazing dog that we had for 16 years.

Adept II

The best gift?

I think the Gift of Life, or at least saving someones life.

As a Lifeguard at a local Pool.

Adept II

A custom made Spider-Man figure for my brother

Adept I

My best present is my presence;)

Adept III

Apple Airpods!
