holly Christmas Presents Best & Worst

What is the best or most useful Christmas present you had received, and what is the worst? It could be something that just was not your style, something you would have never bought for yourself, something that you would never use.....and what did you do with your worst gift?

The best gift I have ever got is my kitchen aid mixer. I use it all the time and it makes my life easier. The worst gift I ever got was a bright purple seater that my aunt got me. It was not my style at all.

The most useful presents I've ever received have been tools from my dad and my brother.

You can't beat a good 18v DeWalt hammer drill!

The most useful gift we got was to my husband and I from his parent was The Magic Bullet (mini blender). We got it 2 years ago and I use it every single day. I make fruit smoothies every day and also use to it make hummus and other dips and grind up flax seeds. I never would have bought this item and when we got it I was afraid I would not put it to use but I was wrong, I can't live without it!

Nothing comes to mind regarding a bad gift. I have to think on that one.

Years ago when I was a teenager around 16 or 17 I got a purple jumpsuit outfit from a relative . It was not something I would have wore being a teenager who was into the rock and heavy metal bands. My choice of clothing back then were jeans and my jean jacket.

I have received several useful gifts over the year... magic bullet, Kitchen Aid mixer, portable DVD player, electric griddle.

Best: My X Box 360. I didn't have a dvd player before I got that, so it's a gaming system, cd player and dvd player all in one and I still use it on a weekly basis.

Worst: Karaoke machine. I am too terrified to sing in public by myself and karaoke is just...not my thing. I felt like my mom didn't know me at all when she got me that! LOL
