My favorite gift is an Amazon gift card and my brother got one for me again this year ($150) ! I also got a really nice garlic press, a pepper grinder, a sea salt grinder and some coffee cups from my son. Mostly, I got a really lovely day and happy times with my child (tho he's an adult). We had bagels with smoked salmon for brunch and roast duck with wild rice and pecan stuffing for dinner Champagne through the day. Red wine in the evening. Ahhh.
The best Christmas present was the time I had visiting with my wonderful niece, whom I see only once a year. On the material side, the best was an Amazon gift card. My bluetooth headphones and other goodies will be arriving shortly.
