    Well, let’s see….favorite Christmas present was the one I received this year. It’s an awesome coffee maker that takes these little “K” cups. I love it and so does the entire family. It makes tea, hot chocolate and lots of yummy coffee. Your give-away stuff is really wonderful.

    My all time favorite Christmas present was my Easy Bake oven. I played with that thing for years!

  6. Marilyn says:

    I remember as a child coming home and finding all kinds of presents under the Christmas tree and wondering how they got there – my father was at work and no one else could have put them there (or so we were led to believe). One of the presents was a Susie Bake Oven. Oh I loved that oven and used it quite often! Thanks for entering me in your giveaway!

    My favorite Christmas gift of all time was the sewing machine that my then husband gave me. I was having trouble with my machine and he totally surprised me by buying me a new one without my knowing.
    I love your giveaway! Happy New Year.

    My favourite christmas present was my espresso machine… now I don’t have to go out and buy expensive coffee… I can make it myself in my own kitchen.

  17. Peter says:

    Two candle stick holders that were passed down from many generations. A distant relative that I didn’t know located me and said that these holders were from a side of the family that was killed during WWii. He wanted to make sure that these were never out of our family. I will pass them on when to my children during Christmas in the future.

  18. Marj says:

    My favorite chrismas present this year is a scrapbook page my sister made me of our mother who passed away this fall. Something that brings tears and smiles all at the same time.

    Looks like a fun package!

    My daughter is the best gift selector of all time. I guess I’ll say my favorite was the time she gave me a 6 month subscription to Netflix. That was a few years ago and I’ve keep it going. Thanks for having the wonderful giveaway.
