Twelve Days of Christmas - Post #3 - Best Gift - EVER

Moving on to one of my favorite subjects - BEST GIFT EVER! WOW, that's a tough one.

I mean, I really like the Starbucks gift cards, and the Bread Machine and the Food Processor - the espresso machine and paintings from my mother....

But there was this one Christmas - and it wasn't one present - it was the WHOLE Christmas gift bit.

I don't know what happened (perhaps Dad got a bonus or something), but I remember waking up on my 14th Christmas and seeing dozens of gifts! The whole living room was full! I got a stereo, a phone, tons of clothes, and the icing on the cake - the entire album collection of Duran Duran.

You guys have no idea how freaking cool that was!

So a 14 year old in 80s with some really cool stuff - it was a GREAT Christmas in my book.

So what is your favorite gift of all time?

I suppose my best Christmas gift was when my hubby bought me an acer Laptop for our 1st Christmas together. Made me cry. I never saw that one coming!

I WAS HUGE JOHN TAYLOR FAN. I had my mom put up a corkboard thing around my room so that I could post pictures from Tiger Beat magazine of John Taylor. He pretty much surrounded my bed. You must have missed the Saturday music feature dedicated to Duran Duran. And John Taylor. I spent hours watching MTV waiting for a Duran Duran video to come on. I am so jealous of your best Christmas present ever. My 14 year old self is just green with envy. I can't even think of what mine is now. I am just boggled with yours. That was awesome. That Duran Duran post was one of my first Inspirational Saturday music posts. *sigh*

I love Starbucks giftcards! I am not sure what my favorite gift for Christmas has been. I really love the giving part. However, I did get a really nice purse one year! Ha! Have a great Thanksgiving Nicole! Thank you for your support and kind comments always. Have a good night!

That sounds like a great Christmas!! I think my very favorite Christmas gift was a photo book by an ex (well, we were together at the time). I'm all for the sentimental gifts and that one really hit home to me.

Oh, and a Tori Amos CD when I was 18--it turned me on to her forever :)
