    What were the best and worst gifts you received and gave?

    With the Christmas hangover almost gone, what were the best and worst things? I gave a Sally's beauty supply gift card to the ugly nasty husband of my niece (the worst given haha). I received tickets in the eighth row front of stage for STYX (the best received)

    I gave my mom the gift of Monk this Christmas season. The last two seasons. It's her new favorite show. I received a $50 Nintendo eShop gift card in exchange. Those two things win out because they were the only gifts exchanged, as the rest of my (surviving) family hates me.

    Best gift(s) I ever got - my dad bought all his brood including me a Sony Playstation back when and the ol'lady bought me Final Fantasy VII, the three disc set original.

    Worst gift - FFVII because what, 20 or more years later I'm still hooked on it.

    The only gift I had any regret was one I gave my son who is a big Jordan Peterson fan. What I thought was a book was a notebook with sayings from all his books on the cover. It was part of my annual Amazon scramble for stocking stuffers. But he's in college so he said he could make use of a notebook one way or another. He's not above taking that to class to piss off the PC liberals and maybe sort out a like minded chick .
    I have no problem with anything I received although the sports car I had mentioned was not under the tree. My granddaughter turned 16 this year and her name happens to coincide with the name of a car . So as we had long joked about for years she got her name sake car. In matchbox form. LOL either.
