The first Christmas gift (that I remember getting) was a wooden airplane on wheels that I pulled around on a string and as it rolled the propeller spun round. You know the kind, Fisher Price thought they were safe many years later, although I'm certain that thousands of kids have bumped into thousands of objects while looking back to see if that propeller was still spining. I now think, however, this was probably good practice for young people to avoid bumping into things while walking and texting.
The best present I ever got, though, had to be a scooter with wooden handles and real rubber tires (well actually, back then, they were more of a toss-up between granite and graphite). I felt every pebble, crack and rock I ever passed over. If one of the tires should chip it was like riding with one square wheel (until it eventually smoothed out).
These days I don't need much so exciting gifts are pretty much a thing of the past. I now tend to focus on family and that very first Christmas in which we all received the greatest gift of all. May that gift be with you and your loved ones each and every Christmas you are together.
That's my opinion and you're entitled to it.
