What were your favorite gifts, both to give and receive? My favorite gift to receive was my Lionel train set, see the 2009 Advent Calendar. Mom collected salt and pepper shakers and later on Jim Beam bottles, so those were my favorite to give.
Grandma was always sewing, so we got flannel pajamas every year, most were way to big for me while I was growing up. She also made quilts so I have a whole trunk full of quilts
