  1. For me, underwear and socks are the best Christmas presents possible! I like that your memories of your grandma at Christmas are cherished. I lost my grandma on Christmas Day last year so this is the first without her and it’s all a bit sucky. I will be remembering the colouring books, felt pens and underwear with far more fondness than all the cash she gave me as I got older!
    Nice post. Merry Christmas

  2. The worst present I ever got for Christmas was… Well, I actually have no idea what it was, or should I say ‘they were’. I was about fourteen and I had expressed an interest in going on a skiing holiday with school. It was just a dream that I was guaranteed would never happen, and guess what, it didn’t. I’ve still never managed it. Anyway, back to this present. It was two strips of red rubbery stuff with metal clips on the end. My late aunt put a note in with them, “You’ll find these handy when you go skiing”. I kept them until I finished university eight years later, and I never did find out what they were!

  3. A hundred bucks, pretty nice, sans the rubber wallet, lol. Hmm, can’t say I got too many crappy gifts except one or twice (no names) bought me a sweater which went directly to charity. I don’t like anyone, including my husband buying me clothes. I’m very picky about style and fit and do fine on my own. 🙂
