Baby Gizmo 12 Days of Christmas 2013 Giveaway – Day 10

12 Days of Christmas

Congrats to our winners –

Julianne R. – Entry #6611 – Stokke Tripp Trapp

Abigail T. – Entry #6011 – Britax Boulevard Car Seat

 

On the 10th day of Christmas, Baby Gizmo gave to me…

(Psst…TWO winners today!)

Britax Boulevard Convertible Car Seat

Did you know that Britax is not only dedicated to safety but fashion too! They research the fashion trends 2 years before the season. The major trends for 2014 blend a nod to the past – muted color palettes with a vintage feel – and a modern mélange of cheerful colors, geometric pattern, animal prints, floral influences and pattern layering.

This month Britax launched a new crop of colorful fashions for its refreshed convertible car seats and winner #1 is getting one – specifically the Boulevard.

BRITAX convertible car seats feature Bases with SafeCell Technology, designed to compress in a crash and significantly lower the center of gravity, thereby counteracting the forward rotation of the child seat.  Integrated steel bars strengthen the seat’s connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing in a crash. BRITAX’s patented Energy Absorbing Versa-Tether has a two-point attachment that reduces crash energy and forward movement using patented staged-release tether webbing.

Britax Car Seat

Stokke Tripp Trapp

Our second winner today will receive the Stokke Tripp Trapp in the color of their choice.

The Tripp Trapp is not only a high chair made out of beautiful, environmentally-friendly wood, but designed to be stylish and last a lifetime. This high chair can be used starting at 6 months (when the child can sit up unassisted) up through adulthood. With easy adjustments, this chair grows with your child, making it a staple in your kitchen decades longer than a traditional baby high chair. Because we don’t like to put baby in the corner, we like that it allows her to join the family at the dinner table from her first day of solid foods.

    My best gift from childhood is a gold bracelet with small cute charms I recvd from my mom. I wore that bracelet everyday for years and still have it. Sad that I lost a couple of charms.

  18. Jessica O says

    While I didn’t think it was all that exciting at the time, the best gifts I received were nativity pieces each year from my godparents. Now I have a wonderful nativity set, and I can pass them on to my kids (talk about a lasting gift).

  19. Nicole says

    It would have to have been the two identical black and white kittens I got when I was about 6. I opened the box and they hopped and started to lick my face. I wish I could give the same to my son one day, but his father is severely allergic :-(

  20. Leah Forstie says

    The best gift I ever received as a child was time spent “up north” at the family cabin for Christmas. It was such a wonderful time hiking through the snow searching for the perfect little Charlie Brown tree, and then decorating it with the few ornaments we brought with. I don’t remember the presents, but the gift of time with family was the best of all! And now that I’ve got my own little ones, we sure could use either of these prizes! :)

  24. Irina Tkachuk says

    The best gift i received as a child was barbie! still remember to this day because we lived in foreign country and my parents couldn’t afford gifts for us, they were able to request from my uncle who lived here in US to send us simple gifts like cars for boys and barbies for girls.

  25. Danielle Clifford says

    The best gift I received for Christmas was a pink girly bike that I wanted when I was 8. :-)

    When we moved the US my parents had promised me barbies and that was pretty great. When I was in 4th or 5th grade I was a competitive piano player and one day I came home from school and my parents had replaced the electric piano with a steinway grand piano – to this day that was one of the best surprises of my life, and I cherish that piano completely.

    Wow, seriously two amazing prizes today! Both have been on my wish list for a bit now as my little guy is getting closer to being that size for both! :D

  33. Amnda Coley says

    Well, for goodness sakes, I can’t even spell my own name – that would be Amanda Coley not Amnda. hahaha

  34. Alexandra Pitcher says

    I’m not sure what it was called, but it was a Disney airport with Mickey and the whole gang; its the only toy i vividly remember from my childhood. It had cars, planes, trains and all the characters!!

It was a very special time for us as our family had gone through some major difficulties the year prior. Still brings tears to my eyes thinking of it…and I was 16 then. Im now a momma to my own little brood (5 kiddos) and I still have that drum.

My best friend and I would throw elaborate tea parties in those dress up clothes and pretend we were royalty.

I had fallen asleep in my mom’s room Christmas Eve and woke up in the middle of the night and she wasn’t in there so I went into the living room and she wasn’t there either. Decided to go to my room and fall back asleep but when I walked in a new bunkbed was there! I figured I probably shouldn’t have seen it so I went back to my mom’s

  133. Amanda hall says

    Love britax car seats! We need to get another one for my son since he’ll he out of his carrier soon and my 18 month old isnt coming out of his car seat anytime soon!

  134. Kristin says

    Best gift I recieved as a child was my American Girl. I still have it and can’t wait to give it to my daughter when she is old enough.

  135. Moriah Payne says

    My most memorable gift would be the bunkbed with a futon on the bottom. I had fallen asleep in my mom’s room Christmas Eve and woke up in the middle of the night and she wasn’t in there so I went into the living room and still didn’t find her. So I went to my room to go back to sleep and found the bunkbed . I figured I shouldn’t have seen it so I went back to bed in her room :-P

  136. Abigail R says

    The best gift I’ve had was a box of new school supplies. It had a lot of small new things like a panda sharpener, bear erasers, cute pens and papers. I loved it!

  137. says

    Best gift I ever received as a child was when I was 16. My parents bought me my first car! It cost them $100 and was used previously to drive around in the ginseng fields. It was rusty, had a spot you could see through the road in the floor, but it was the best gift ever! We called it the “Flinstone” car and was so awesome!!

  138. Aleia Chambers says

    My favorite and most memorable christmas gift was my first bike. It was pink and had a banana seat and an am/fm radio! :)

  139. Kathryn C says

    My parents bought me a doll one year. It looked very real and I took it everywhere with me. People often looked at us like ‘why is this 10 year old carrying around a baby’ it was pretty funny!

  140. charity martinez says

    The best gift I received as a child was the international barbie from Paris :) I really loved that barbie.

  141. Tracy Rose says

    A Cabbage Patch doll was my favorite. My mom actually stood in line for it and that didn’t happen back then :)

  142. Holly G says

    A “real baby” – felt very lifelike and it’s one of the only toys I have left to this day.

  143. Tracy says

    My best gift was a play kitchen. I still remember walking downstairs and seeing it under the tree!

  144. Robin Longley says

    The Britax convertible car seat would be perfect! We are almost ready to move out of our baby car seat – and love the Britax for safety :) of course a stylish high chair from Stokke would be great too :) thank you!

  145. Jenn Kuhn says

    The best Christmas gift I received as a child was my cabbage patch doll – it had my same birthday. I still have it, and look foward to passing it on.

  146. Melissa N says

    My most memorable gift was the boxes of math and science stuff my aunt and uncle sent us every year. Pretty sure the microscope they sent is still in my parent’s house somewhere.

  147. LAURA says

    I cant really remember my favorite, but i remember my least favorite– betty boop stuff! and my grandma got it EVERY single year…dolls, clothes, etc…she thought i loved it for some reason!

  148. Tonya m says

    This is easy. Best Christmas present was my Holly Hobby Easy Bake Oven. I honk I had o be about 6 or 7 years old.

  149. Julieanne G says

    Best Christmas gift I would have to say was my first born born little girl born just a few days before Christmas.

  150. Mandy says

    My favorite gift was my Beauty and the Beast dolls when I was in 1st grade. I took such good care of them because I loved Belle so much! :)

  151. Linda Jacobs says

    The best gift I ever received was my roller skates. And another year was my kitten. To open a box with holes in it, to a kitten that you have been asking for at 8 years old, was so exciting!

  152. stephanie nelson says

    The best gift was from my grandma and grandpa, they got mea huge barbie set, that included a huge rug plus that would make different rooms in the house. The kitchen dishwasher would make noises like it was running, same with the bathroom sink and toilet. The shower you could add water and it would come or like a real shower. It was awesome andi still have it for my daughter gets a little older.

  153. Rae Juusola says

    This is a hard one, but I think the best gift I ever recieved as a child was my pony Snip! I can’t remember if she was a Christmas or a birthday present though. We still have here today, 20 years later.

  154. Emily Coen says

    I remember getting a red wagon. I was so excited! I also got a Heart Family that year. I guess that was my most memorable Christmas.

  155. Lauren V says

    Probably the gifts that I used the most and longest were puzzles and legos. Often the stuff I wanted the most only got use for a few weeks.

  156. Jennifer R. says

    I think the best present that I received as a child would have to be a huge chalkboard so that I could “teach” my dolls!

  157. Anne says

    My teddy bear! I still have it to this day and have passed it down to my daughter. I told her if I ever see her treating him badly, he goes back to me!

  158. Katie M says

    The best gift I got was for my & my sister, a Nintendo (original one). We were so excited. We actually found where my mom had hidden it and busted her but she lied and said it was for her friend’s son. Needless to say we were excited when we opened it in Christmas Day!

  159. Kerri Angell says

    I was never a girly girl so the year i received a “boys” bike I was in heaven! I was 8.

  160. Stephanie Yeomans says

    The best gift I ever got was by Magic Nursery baby doll Jill when I was 7 or 8 for Christmas.

  161. Becky says

    We love the Britax brand as a family! We used the Britax Chaperone and recently bought the Boulevard! Would love to have another for our other car!

  162. Melissa says

    This is a pretty hard question, I would have to go with an Ariel poster hanging over my bed when I woke up Christmas morning!

  163. Jenny says

    My best gift was a kit to make a teddy bear. I had to go to my grandma’s to make it because she’s the one who got it and also was the only one with a sewing machine, so we got to spent a lot of quality time on it. I remember getting so mad at it sometimes because I was having trouble figuring it out, but in then end I learned a lot about patience and taking pride in things because it was the first thing I’d made. The head was on crooked and it was slightly under stuffed, but I loved that thing.

  164. Tara says

    I don’t remember many gifts from when I was little aside from dolls. I do remember as a teen wanting a pair of designer jeans. We were somewhat poor growing up so the likelihood of me getting them was pretty grim. I was so happy on Christmas morning when I opened up my present and finding a pair. I still don’t know how my family came up with the money at the time.

  165. Shelby White says

    An art set with an easel and everything… I had said I wanted to be an artist…who knew years later I wouldn’t even be able to draw a circle. lol

  166. Amanda B says

    The best gift I received as a child was a Barbie doll house :)
    The britax is on my Christmas list this year!! (Seriously…. My family still requests lists and it’s on there!!)

  167. Chris z says

    My favorite gift ever as a child was a double doll stroller that spun around like a carousel when you pushed it. I would bring it everywhere we went ❤️

  168. Lisa says

    The best gift I received as a child was a pair of roller skates when I was 5. They had stars on them and were awesome.

  171. Betty Baez says

    The best gift i received as a child was an easy bake oven lol i was over the moon because i wanted one so badly!

  172. nicole v-p says

    I think the best gift i got was a barbie dream house, that thing was as tall as me when I was a child, and me and my sister played with it for years.

  173. Sari says

    Definitely the handmade doll my mother made for me one year. It was such a nice change from my other dolls.

  174. Aimee says

    My sister was born on thanksgiving and was in the nicu off awhile. So when you finally came home it was around the holidays so they gave me a sibling as a lifelong present!!!!

  175. Jessica Rodriguez says

    A mini jeep that I shared w/my two little brothers… So much fun driving it around the yard.

    On the tenth day of christmas baby gizmo gave to me….
    a britax or a cool stokke chair!!

  178. Kimber B says

    The best gift I received as a child would have to be the year a got a black sweater. The dress code at school was all black and I didnt have a black sweater so I was freezing cold. I cried when I opened it because I didnt have to be cold any more.

  179. Pavla says

    All the christmas lovin…. I was very fortunate not only to get gifts but also lot of family love and time with people I love. That was the best give ever!

  180. Marci Lundberg-Asmus says

    Ssshhh….don’t tell my kids, it was my 4-wheeler, got it about the age my oldest is now. I personally think my parents were nuts! Her power wheels go too fast for me some days.

  181. Darla says

    My best gift was a Baby Feel So Real! It weighed about the same as a new born, had the soft skin, and also you could feel the bones thru the gel like arms. Loved that thing!!

  182. Melissa Marinho says

    The best gift I received as a child was the American Girl doll that I had wished for for years :) Thanks Mom and Dad! <3

  184. Morgan says

    I have been wanting to get a Tripp Trapp for awhile now! That would be amazing. And Britax is my favorite carseat brand.

  185. Amanda Wilson says

    I remember getting my creepy crawler machine. My brothers and I would make bugs all day long!!

  187. Kristin b says

    I received a stuffed white and black lifesize tiger! It was so cool i used to sit on it like i was riding it

  188. Carrie H. says

    the best gift I received was my boombox and some cassettes. So exciting to have control over what I was listening to.

  189. Kelly Lorandos says

    The Christmas I remember the best being so happy about my presents was the year I got my cabbage patch dolls. Was so beyond excited!

  190. Betsy says

    My all time favorite gift was a keyboard! I’m not really a musician, but I spent hours and hours playing with that thing!

  191. Amanda Santiago says

    A pink huffy bike with a banana seat. It got stolen the following summer while we were on vacation. very sad:|

  192. Kirsten says

  202. Stephanie D says

    I got a tv for my room when I was 5 years old and my 8 year old sister didn’t even have one. Let’s just say I had the cool room :D

  203. Kristen Seguin says

    The best gift I received was a “Jill” doll. It was the size of me and talked. It malfunctioned though and had to go back to Santa’s workshop so I got another cabbage patch doll from Santa instead. LOL. If it had worked, it would have been awesome.

  204. Ani says

    a shirt.. I was in High school. And it was nothing special.. what made it special was it was the first time my dad had bought the xmas presents.

  205. Allison b says

    Best gift I see received was a ring from my grandpa. I started bawling thinking I didn’t deserve such a beauty. I didn’t even care it was an avon product.

  206. Kindle says

    The best gift I received as a child was my pet dog Prancer lol. I was six and had been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes the day after my birthday. My dad thought a dog would be good for me.

    My sister and I got a full set of REAL teacher supplies (a gradebook, whiteboard, workbooks etc). We were in HEAVEN!

  209. says

    Best gift I received as a child? A family. Was taken from an abusive mother and placed with CPS at 1. Just 9 days after my 2nd bday I was adopted by an amazing family – That is the best gift a child could have received was the gift of love and family.

  210. Alycia says

    I grew up in California, but moved to Minnesota right after Christmas when I was 8. I got ice skates for Christmas that year and thought it was the coolest thing since I’d never been ice skating before, and neither had any of my friends!

  211. Heather T says

    The best gift I received as a child was a Cabbage Patch Kid! They were brand new and my parents were on waiting lists to get one. My first Cabbage Patch kid was a boy with no hair and blue eyes, I named him Michael :)

  212. Shasta L says

    I received an awesome doll house for Christmas one year that I went insane over. You could put the dolls in their spots and they would talk. Was really awesome at the time!

  213. Fran M says

    The Britax Boulevard would probably be a good seat for my three year old. Would probably last her a long time, too.

  214. Tycee Behrmann says

    The best gift I received as a child was a barbie doll house! I would play with it for hours and hours!

  215. Jennifer Deli says

    The highchair can really help my baby boy join us at the dinner table as he grows! I love baby gizmo!

    My grandparents bought all 7 grandchildren 13″ TVs one year for Christmas. It was the most exciting thing.

  220. Marisa says

    there are not a lot of things that I remember from when I was a child, but the gift that I remember most and had the longest was a soft doll that I called Strawberry Shortcake because of the red dress and hat that she wore. I don’t even remember who gave it to me, but I sure loved the thing!

  221. Julie M. says

    The best gift I received as a child was having my dad return home safely after a long Air Force deployment overseas. Nothing will ever beat greeting him right off the plane after such a long time away!

  226. Kaycie says

    I got a pony when I was 8 – a real one. Her name was Moriah :-)

    My absolute favorite gift I got when I was in my early 20s, my grandmother, who was nearly blind, painted me an entire china tea set. Although her work was more beautiful when she still had her full vision, this was the most special thing anyone has ever done for me. These were the last dishes she painted.

  227. Esther says

    small garbage can with my name and tons of goodies. I’m sure theres more but thats what i remember!

  228. Addison Kat says

    My best gift was the My Little Pony castle. I remember asking if we could bring it with us on vacation. I was trying to convince my mom that I didn’t need clothes but I NEEDED this toy.

  229. Debra W says

    The one I have the best memory of was my Bowling Snoopy that my older cousins gave me. Probably because they had as much fun playing with me as I did with them.

  230. Kelli V says

    The best gift I received as a little girl was a pair of white and purple roller skates! I used to pretend that I was a professional ice skater and make up routines to songs in the street in front of my house. I spent many hours using those skates until they eventually ran out of steam.

  231. Claire Rheinheimer says

    I once received a stroller for my baby doll, and my sister got a matching one. We were so excited!

    I loved Snoopy and Barbie. My best gift was a toss up between a plush snoopy that I still have or my Barbie house which provided me hours of fun!!

  233. Katie Moyle says

    My favorite gift was a Cabbage Patch doll. It was about two years after the “official” Cabbage Patch craze, but I finally got one. A real one :)

  234. Eileen R says

    A German Shepard puppy ! It was a December gift from my dad for the whole family . I loved cuddling with her so much and i loved that she was so playful! Even if she peed everywhere or jumped on me when she was still learning,she was still the best. I Still have a very faint scar on my wrist from when I was 8 or 9; I was walking her and she got excited, jumped up on me, and playfully mouthed my arm. She was stronger than she realized and had sharp teeth! The scar reminds me of her now that she’s gone <3

  235. Remington Richey says

    One year I got a teddy bear that was taller than I was. It was AWESOME! I would lay on it, sleep on it, and attempt to drag it around the house. I would eventually give up halfway so we often had a gigantic teddy bear laying around random parts of our house. Definitely best gift ever.

  236. says

    The best gift I received as a child was a bike that I completly wasn’t expecting. They told me Santa left something in the kitchen. They captured the moment on camera my mouth was wide open in shock and my hand were on my face. Best picture ever

  237. Marsha Owens says

    The best gift I received as a kid was a doll called Baby Go Bye Bye. I was 2 years old and I can still remember asking Santa for it. I did get it for Christmas and I loved that doll. I don’t know what ended up happening to it but I had such fond memories of it and never forgot it. I ended up finding one on eBay several years ago in near mint condition with the original box and everything, and I bought it! It makes me happy just to look at her.

  238. Jac Que Lyn says

    An Addy American Girl Doll. Which then provided more well-loved presents each year as I received more of her accessories.

  239. Christina F. says

    i don’t know that it was the best gift ever, but it’s one that sticks out in my mind even today: a pretend vacuum cleaner. it was a pink upright and i thought it was absolutely amazing. :-)

  240. Stephanie says

    When I was 8 or 9 I got not one but TWO “My Child” dolls for Christmas. Man, I thought that was just the best gift ever!

  241. TawndaM says

    The ‘BEST’ gift I received as a child wasn’t a gift in & of itself… it was the gift of WONDER… You see… I can’t think of even one childhood gift specifically… BUT, I DO remember opening a doll one year… the packaging stated quite clearly ‘Batteries NOT Included’… I remember ripping off the paper, then the plastic sealing the doll in the box, then removing the doll from the box & it worked. The ‘magic’ of having a Dad in retail management… the box lied… batteries were included even in a retail-sealed package… Took me years until I worked at a store that had one of those re-realers in the back room to finally figure out how it happened… ;-)

  242. Becky says

    My brother and I received scooters one year for Christmas. We loved them and rode all day long in the basement, our parents couldn’t get us to stop!

  243. Whitley R says

    Best gift I received as a child was a 4-wheeler. It was a smaller one for kids and my brother and I would ride together on trails and in fields where my dad would take us. I loved being outside!

  244. Kelly says

    The best gift I got for Christmas was the book “The Story of Babar” from my paternal Grandmother. It was my favorite book growing up as a child, and I kept it with me all these years, and was able to give it to my oldest daughter at her first Christmas. It was very fitting because my daughter is named after my paternal grandmother, and it still has my grandmother’s message to me written inside the cover. We told my daughter that her Grandmother was able to give her the gift from heaven, so she needed to keep it safe. It is still her favorite book to read at night. :-)

  245. Nicole Acuna says

    A Victorian style baby stroller for my new doll, I was so excited that morning and I will always remember it!

  246. tzippy schreiber says

    the best gift i got as a kid was my leotard and tights. i loved dancing when i was a kid….

    I loved getting roller skates for Christmas, & skating all around our basement because it was too snowy outside.

  249. Karmin says

    The best gift I received as a child was my Easy Bake Oven. I kept that thing until I was a teenager. I loved it!

  250. Ben Eick says

    Lego monorail set. It was all I wanted that year and it was given as the last gift, everyone thought all the gifts were given, but my grandpa pulled one more out from under the couch. I was so happy I skipped dessert to start working on it. for years I would put it together at Christmas, and in a few years, I’ll be able to put it together with my son.

  251. Jenna says

    My favorite gift was a play kitchen, I carted the thing up and down stairs and even outside by myself when I was little. That way I could play with it anywhere ;)

    The best gift I received was a wooden knitting mushroom, I used it all the time and kept it, and I gave it to my daughter when she was 6 :)

  253. Isa Butler says

    My grandma sent me a cabbage patch doll from Texas. Her name was Sylvia Loreli (the doll) and she had green eyes and brown hair just like me. I still have her today and she is tucked away in a cabinet.

  254. Ashley says

    The best gift I’ve ever received was actually not mine. I stole my sister’s New Kids on the Block
    Dolls (but they were rad when I was 6). Second best was a copy of The Dark Crystal and The Goonies.

  255. Melinda T says

    Saw the high chair and didn’t leave the right comment. The best present I received as a child was my bike.

  256. Paul Arnold says

    The best gift I received as a child for Christmas was a giant Tinkertoy set. They don’t make them anymore, but my brothers and friends had a blast with them in the back yard for years.

  257. says

    The best gift I received as a kid was a purple “boombox”, it was my first radio that could play CD’s which were new at the time. I also received my first CD with it which was “Hot Ladies of the 80’s”. LOVED IT!!!

    i had slept on a day bed for most of my childhood so one year i asked for a new bed a got a brand new full size bed with frame mattress and headboard. that was certainly my fave and most memorable

  259. Christina Curtin says

    The best/most memorable gift I received was my ET doll that Santa brought me when I was 2. Most kids were scared by ET, but I had this weird obsession with him and he was my “teddy bear” for all of my childhood and even came to college with me.

  260. Reina Mira says

    I can only remember I had a bunch of Barbie dolls. And I have a twin sister, so imagine it was a lot!!!

  265. Abigail Thomson says

    I was about 6 or 7 and my twin sister and I received twin dolls along with a double stroller their bottles and everything. It was really cool to have something to relate to and play with.

  266. Heather H says

    I would have to say the best Xmas gift I received as a child was my first cabbage patch kid, simply because my mom waited for a lottery the first year they came out and didn’t get one but was lucky enough the following year to get her hands on ONE and my younger sister ended up with a knock-off because she could only get one that year!

  267. Megan Stone says

    One year we got a Sesame Street Talk n Play. It would read stories and you could push different buttons to change the story. You could also record yourself, which became our favorite thing to do…talking, singing or playing. We played with that toy for years!

  268. MaryAnn says

    We usually received smaller gifts but one year my parents decided to get all 3 of us kids one big gift. It was a trampoline. Best gift we ever received. We spend countless hours playing on it most of our childhood.

  269. Sheila Popovich says

    You must have been looking at my list for Santa because we could use both of these for the new baby

  270. says

    The best gift I ever got was a Strawberry Shortcake bike with a basket, streamers, a banana seat and training wheels. It smelled like strawberries and I rode the hell out of it.

    I was not allowed to eat anything cold (due to health conditions) – so whenever my dad gave it an exception and bought me an ice cream, I would be on cloud 9! I remember those days :)

    The Britax Boulevard is the car seat that I really want for my baby! It’s so safe that I can rest easy if we get one.

  273. Erin S. says

    I love the information on this blog. Been watching for a the whole year before getting pregnant… 5mth along cant wait

  274. Kathleen Gereg says

    The best gift I ever received was a doll that really walked-She had hip joints that were movable, but not at the knees, so she walked with her legs straight out! I still have her and she’s still loved…

    the best gift i recieved as a child was our puppy, unfortunatly he died, but he was definitely the best christmas present i can remember. i remember how excited i was when i first saw him.

  276. Kelly Fileccia says

    Honestly, I don’t remember any one gift being the best part about Christmas. I always LOVED the candle light service at church followed by the entire family packing into our medium sized house for dinner… the family time always beat any present I ever received and left us with fun memories to share with our kids now.

  277. Jessica Barnhart says

    my own bedroom for my 12th birthday! My dad finished the basement so I wouldn’t have to share with my 6 year old sister anymore

  278. Julie Granito says

    The best gift I received when I was little was a boom box… complete with double casette player! YEAH!

  279. Kim p says

    The best gift I got was a porcelain doll when I was 10. My family didn’t have a lot money so this was a big deal as this was my first official doll.

  280. Betsy Johnson says

    The best Christmas present I ever got has a handmade sock monkey! I loved that thing to pieces, literally!

  281. Caitlin says

    My favorite childhood christmas gift was my dollhouse — I got it at just the right age to use it for years!

  282. Cheyenne goguen says

    The best gift I received was my first cellphone haha our parents waited for much longer than most to give us cellphones so I remember when I got that first one it was AMAZING! a little black and white flip phone hehe

  283. Amie says

    My knock-off cabbage patch doll. It was “extra” special because it wasn’t like everyone elses. :) Thanks!

  284. Heather Wone says

    I would have to say that the best gift would be my family! I have three younger sisters and two parents that did a tremendous job making Christmas special for us. Now that I am older and I look back at our Christmases… It’s not the gifts I remember, but the wonderful memories.

    A 6 story barbie house and it had an elevator you could pull up and down with a string, i miss it so much

  286. Jennifer says

    The best gift I ever received as a child was a quilt my great grandmother made for me…it’s still my favorite ; )

  287. Kristen DiGregorio says

    My American Girl doll, Molly. I still remember how excited my grandmother was to give her to me. I picked her out of the catalog (pre-Internet days!) on Thanksgiving and could not be happier to finally see her on Christmas Day.

  288. Maureen Modic says

    My kitchen set when I was 4….I literally threw up b.c I was so excited! Best christmas memory…best picture ever! ha

  289. Angela says

    The best gift I received as a child was my own bedroom (away from my little sister, who annoyed me at the time) that was fully decorated in purple and had a canopy bed!

  290. Jackie R says

    I got a pink satin sleep mask when I was about 8. I felt like such a princess. I think I still have it, 30 years later.

  291. Rebecca Michel says

    I received a lot of great gifts going up. I think the best gift i received as a child was my kitchen set.

  292. Kara Grady says

    Best gift I received was a silver locket necklace that still carries the picture of my best friend who has since passed.

  293. says

    The best gift I ever received was a tiny little toddler sized red piano from my late grandmother. She has now passed, but I still have the piano and my son now has it in his nursery!

  294. Katie says

    Best Christmas gift is being able to be with family. As a child my favorite gift was probably my cabbage patch doll.

  295. Kelly Sherman says

    The best gift I ever received as a child (or the one I most remember) was my first bike. I got to pick out the color I wanted and I remember it having all the bells and whistles. Loved it. It was pink :)

  296. Wendy Vor says

    I love the Britax Carseat in Aqua, thats my all time favorite color, Its about time to update my newborn carseat.

  297. Jesika Chapman says

    This giveaway is amazing and I’d not only love to win but I’m sure my baby would thank me as well. The Britax car seats have always been a staple in our home because of their safety and the 4-5lbs accommodations which helped us bring our preemies home. We’ve never owned a TrippTrapp but it looks like an amazing high chair! Anything that lasts and grows is wonderful for a large family on a tight military budget :) we make the best of everything we can.

  298. Oksana Poberezhnik says

    When we moved to US the day before Christmas we spent with a really nice (wealthy) family that bought us all presents! We got giftcards and clothes but that wasn’t the best part.. It’s one of the most memorable Christmases bc we got actual presents! We didn’t get presents living in Ukraine.. Sometimes a went caroling and people would give us candy but that’s as exciting as that got

    A Barbie Dream House. I was 3 1/2 and I will still never forget that Christmas morning and the surprise gift, left to the very last in the downstairs family room. It was like Christmas all over again when my parents called me down after opening all my other gifts and I laid eyes on that gorgeous orange and yellow Dream House (hello, 1984!).
