What my dad always called my Coke Cola doll. Though nothing on her had the coke logo.

We always brought groceries at a very old fashion store with wooden floors and a penny candy counter run by an old couple that no doubt immigrated to the usa.
There was a doll dressed in a blue sparkle gown with a shaw and she was about 24 inches or more tall. My parents didn't have much money but my dad arranged with the owners to purchase the doll for me and Christmas morning she was under the tree (our gifts were never wrapped).

I still have the doll today. I often think of the sacrifices my parents made so my brother and I could have happy Christmases and they did it in a way that we knew and appreciated what they gave us.

one present that made me very happy....was last year....my brother gave me the DvDs of the cartoon, Kimba the white Lion.....I used to watch it when I was 8-10....which is about 17 years ago...and it was my absolute favorite....even tho it´s a "just" a DvD....something that doesn´t really seem to be a sentimental gift....it almost made me cry....cos I connect this cartoon to my childhood.....just loved it.

A DVD player some years ago. Was when they first came out, and even tho I was well past the age of getting an expensive gift from my parents, instead of a $50 gift certificate, I got a $250 DVD player.

Was so unexpected I was really suprised and moved, especially since I didn't think I would be able to get one for myself for a long time.

However, I didn't have a movie to play on it, so I had to hunt around and found a movie rental place that was open on Christmas and bought the only DVD I liked there, "Young Frankenstein"

Back when I was 6 years old, my favorite uncle gave me a pink poodle radio that I just adored. For the younger folks back in the day Radio Shack sold plush animals with AM radio receivers in them.

I fell in love with radio and went through a 9-volt battery every other day. I'm sure that drove my parents crazy. I went on to study radio and make a career of it.

20 years ago, my husband surprised me with a lovely sewing machine with computerized settings. I thought it was so sweet because it was a gift I never asked for - but especially thoughtful of my hubby to think of it. I just loved it then, and still do!

I guess that I'd have to say that my most memorable Christmas present would be a little cabinet that my dad and grandpa made for me when I was about 5 or 6 . It was for my toy dishes.It has double door's up top, a counter top,drawer and 2 more double door's.I'm almost 48 and I still have the cabinet .

My best had to be my American Girls Felicity doll. She was the top of my list and I even saved up my money to buy her if I didn't get her. Before Christmas I had bought the American Girl sized Christmas tree and had set it up and decorated it in the spare bedroom. On Christmas morning I flew downstairs to find no doll under the tree. I was a bit disappointed and went back upstairs to go back to bed when I saw something beside my little American girl tree. I flipped on the light and it was Felicity. I was sooo happy!

I think it was the Christmas when i was six years old. I wanted a Thumbulina Doll so bad. I really didn't think I was going to get her, but sure enough, there she was under my christmas tree christmas morning. I even had a carrying case, and doll clothes for her. Of all the dolls I ever had, Thumbulina was my favorite. I treated her and talked to her like she was real.
