{closed} My Favorite Things Giveaway: 16GB iPad!

iPad 2

Happy Thanksgiving, guys! Can you believe we’re almost ready to drop a “peace the [bleep] out” on 2013? So far, it has been a pretty normal year for us – plenty of stress and a bunch of reminders about how being an adult can totally suck sometimes. Throw in that bonus scary medical “fire drill” and we are ready for the thankful, holly, and jolly holiday season. SOOOO ready. We are alive and healthy and we have some of the greatest friends and family that anyone could ask for.

And you guys? You’re pretty &^%$#@! awesome, too.

We hope you guys are able to spend this weekend with the people you live. Or like. Or are at least tolerable after a couple of cranberry margaritas – whatever it takes to deal.

We don’t judge. But we do invite you to say hello to the first of our My Favorite Things holiday giveaways: iPad 2 16GB. A fancy schmancy iPad.

My little friend who has been a tremendous help in reducing new cookbook clutter. My little friend who is always on the kitchen island, ready to help me conquer another dinner recipe, one sort of clean knuckle-swipe at a time.

Unless it’s upstairs on the treadmill because I had to run inside due to the rain. Or next to Jason’s bike trainer because he swiped it to watch mountain bike racing while he rides inside. Or hidden under the covers of The Little’s bed because she wanted to watch Dinosaur Train in peace. Or in the bathroom because – WHY IS MY IPAD IN THE &^%$#@! BATHROOM AGAIN?!

So much for those deep breathing exercises.

Would you like a chance to find your shiny new white iPad in a place you really don’t want other people taking it? Simply answer the following question in the comments below: What was your favorite Christmas gift to receive as a child?

Update: The winner is… The Home Cook with comment #404. Thanks for reading – and check your email!

I’m going to call it that sparkly navy blue 10 speed bike that I know Santa’s elves had to work extra hard to afford that year. But maybe yours was an EZ Bake Oven? A bucket of those heel-assassinating green army men? A laptop? A puppy? A baby?! – I have a friend who can actually say this!

You can earn up to 3 extra entries by:
– Leaving a separate comment below that you follow us on Twitter.

    The first gift that popped in my head was my cabbage patch doll. I even remember her name: Beverly Brenda. :-) I loved that doll…cabbage patch kids were the best!

    One year, my parents totally surprised me with my own phone line. In the pre-cell phone days, that was the best gift ever.

  • Margo

    When I was younger, my favorite gift was horseback riding lessons. My parents didn’t have the money for me to have regular lessons so family members would gift them to me for my birthday and Christmas. I’m still riding today and love it!

    Well, I wasn’t a child, but I guess it’s be pretty crummy of me not to say the best Christmas present I ever got was the baby, huh? 😉

  • Elizabeth

    My favorite gift is one I gave:

    My college roommate had an older sister who always got but never shared her awesome holiday gifts. My roommate desperately wanted to play with her sister’s LiteBrite but was never allowed. So one year in college we got her a LiteBrite. She was over the moon excited and spent the whole holiday break making pictures on it.

    I don’t have a particular gift that comes to mind but I do remember the year that my parents were getting my two little brothers snowboards for Christmas, which they wanted so badly, and I convinced them that mom and dad didn’t have enough money to get them for them and that it wasn’t nice to ask for them. The looks on their faces that morning when they came down and saw them was absolutely priceless and it is one of my most favourite holiday memories!

    My all time favorite childhood toys were Polly Pockets….the teensy-tiny choking hazard ones introduced in the early nineties. Favorite gift for sure!!!

  • My favorite gift was a globe (to this day, I don’t remember why I wanted one so much; maybe being able to spin it – I loved doing that – and playing the game where you close your eyes, put your finger on one spot in the world and see what city you landed on). My dad noted that it was newly inaccurate since the USSR had just dissolved, but since I was 7, I think I both a) didn’t realize what that meant and b) didn’t care.

    My favorite thing I received at Christmas…hard question. I love the “traditional” gifts that our mom used to have Santa leave us every year – hair supplies, earrings, special candy… Mom continued that through last year, even! This year we are switching to secret santas with the adults’ gifts. It will be different, but Christmas is all about the children and the greatest gift EVER – Jesus.
    My parents were divorced and I remember always having wonderful Christmases even though my mom had to work 3 jobs, sometimes, to support my sister and me. That was a great gift she gave us, as well. Memories.

  • Mellybrown

    Not sure if it was my favorite present of all time, but the year my siblings and I got a Nintendo is very memorable. Merry Christmas to your family!

  • One year I really, really, REALLY wanted the new Backstreet Boys CD. My Parents are notorious for forgetting a present and usually towards the end of openings gifts there is a, “where’s the_______?” “Did you wrap it?” “No, did you?” and then one of them runs off to find the missing present.

    My Dad acted as if there was something he forgot and he went downstairs to their bedroom. I didn’t think twice until I heard the Backstreet Boys CD blaring from the basement! I got up from the couch, fell due to my excitement, got back up and ran downstairs excitedly :)

    My favorite Christmas gift as a child? Hands down, without a doubt…my first Cabbage Patch doll…her name is Aggie and I still love her so!

  • Joy C.

    My favorite gift was usually whatever I was not expecting. It was sort of anticlimactic to make a list and then proceed to receive the items (Although I was always VERY grateful), so when my parents gave me something that I did not ask for, it made it extra special.

  • Pat Mitts

    I remember wanting a Woodburning set when I was about 10. This was a toy that provided you with preprinted balsa that you darkened with a red hot tool that had a handle . Sort of like a hair curler on steroids. Boy did that require adult supervision. Got me used to all those oven burns I would later experience though!

    I do not have a favorite gift however, I do know the best gift I ever gave. Was a strawberry shortcake doll that blew scented kisses when you squeezed her tummy. It was a toy that I wanted as a child and I saw her on the shelf and had to get it for my daughter. She got so excited that she started to hyperventilate. The year my friend got me a puppy when I was 16 was pretty cool too.

    The best gift I ever got from my parents was a pair of “real” roller skates…not the kind that clip on your shoes, but the ones you actually put your foot in and lace up. I was in heaven!
