DAY 11. What was your favourite childhood Christmas present?

The other day I read an article about a couple who bought ~300 presents for their kids for Christmas. As can be expected, the internet had a lot to say about it. While some were saying they can do whatever they want with their money, others pointed out that spoiling children is akin to abuse.
When it comes to my family, sometimes too much emphasis was put on the presents – when we were little kids. Being a single parent, Mum always felt like she wasn’t doing a good enough job, and tried to show us her love in that way. I still remember being a little kid telling her she didn’t need to buy so many presents. Now I’m not saying we got anywhere near as many (after all, we didn’t have enough money for that, anyway), but this history comes to mind when I read this question.
Despite all the weight Mum put on our presents, I don’t really remember any from my childhood that was my favourite.
I love all the gifts that I get, but what I remember more about the day, are the jokes we share and the games we play.
What was your favourite childhood Christmas present? Let me know below, or start your own 12 Days of Christmas Blogging Challenge.
