Best gift ever was my Super NES when I was in Grade 3. I still have that thing and all the classic games.

When I was living overseas my entire family flew out on Christmas day to spend Christmas with me -- that was the best present ever.

I'd have to say my Gameboy. It was inseparable from me from the age of 4 to 12.

I've thought long and hard, but I can't pick a favourite - I've had lots of wonderful gifts - books, CDs, cookbooks ... I would love to get to Circle Craft this year ...

My Cabbage Patch Doll when I was 4... I waited desperately for that thing for months and they had to pry it out of my hands at bedtime. It was love at first sight.

A trip to a different time zone. At 12 I thought some magical time travel stuff would happen when crossing the line. Turns out the central standard time zone is pretty unexciting.

I was 5 years old and my sister and I had opened our Christmas presents . . . or so we thought. Our parents hinted they thought they heard someone (perhaps Santa) downstairs during the night.

We raced downstairs and discovered 2 brand new bikes for us next to the fireplace in the basement . Mine was red with a sparkly banana seat. I think I was almost 30 until before i stopped checking the basement every Christmas morning for a surprise!
