Mine is a joke t-shirt we bought for my step-daughter. She has been a nursing home cook for a number of years, and her father has always teased her about her cooking killing off the residents. It's a good-natured tease between the two of them, so I found his gift for her. It's a navy long-sleeved tee. On the front in light blue there is a skull and crossbones and underneath it says "Eat my cooking at your own risk!" She'll love it, and it will make everyone laugh and be happy.

One year, I bought a huge Plecostamus (sucker fish) for my b/f for his new fishtank. 1st I put wrapping paper on the giftbox and lid separately, as well as the ribbon. I left just enough water in the bag for the fish to be comfortable and put it in the box. I took it over to his house and said "Here! You have to open it NOW. AND DON'T SHAKE IT TO SEE IF IT MAKES NOISE!" Oh, yeah. He was surprised. Aloha!

This gift led to a promise ring from my now husband. He had told me all he wanted for Christmas was to talk to his friend Jon who had moved away and we could not find him. He mentioned this a lot. So... I tracked down Jon and asked him to call my boyfriend at the time on Christmas Eve. He called while I was at his house and when he hung up the phone, he took me outside and gave me a promise ring, later followed by an engagement ring. It was a lot of work to find him, but he loved it and that made it incredible for me too. Great question!

What a wonderful story. Gifts like that are the ones longest remembered and most meaningful. Merry Christmas to both of you!

My favorite gift I bought for someone was a pair of sneakers that my older son really wanted, and they were very expensive, but I figured I don't buy expensive items all the time so since it was Xmas I thought "why not."

I think the cd that my husband wanted would be my favorite because it's what he wants for christmas.
