    1. Top present this year for me is a new, but particularly expensive, handbag

    2. Best present ever: New slalom kayak c1980 to celebrate me geeting into Ladies Division 2 - I'd only ever had second-hand boats until then

    3. A pink horse soft toy from an aged aunt when I was 14. She seemed to think I was still 4

    1 - I desparately need some new football boots (studs & mouldies) so those are top of my list.

    2 - I don't really have a 'greatest' present - each year I get lots of great things.

    3a - Ugo Boss spray from gran. Took it to school for after PE - Oh how I got ribbed for that!

    3b - A Star Wars toy scenery to be used with characters (from gran again) - no characters included, and it was actually a collectable so why would a 14 year old want it?

    1 - This year? The best pressie anyone could get me is 'nothing', or a card saying 'we spent the money on your neices and nephews'. Seriously I'm all bah humbg this year. Not buying any pressie and would rather peps spent their money on something more worthwhile than my humble self.

    2 - I'm with Hightower on this. also see 3.

    3 - Don't think I can fairly choose a least favoutite. Besides I think putting an answer in a public forum would be disrespectful to whomever bought me that pressie.

    There you go, I'm gonna grump off into the corner now...

    1. Haven't the foggiest to be honest. DVD box-set collection of Stargate SG1 all seasons?

    2. So many to choose from. I'd have to say it was a 30 year old Canon FTb with a collection of lenses. Or it could be half of my first laptop.

    3. Some boxers with hearts on them from my Gran.

    1. Nothing, for the last 10+ years I've told people not to buy me anything. I have enough stuff, give the money to charity on my behalf instead.

    2. My first BMX - A redline, all chrome.

    3. A Noddy colouring book from my grandparents- I was 15! I think it was intended for my cousin who has the same first name and was about 5 at the time.

    1 - Tossup between a new ceramic hob (boring, but necessary), a Fenix LD01 or L2T

    2 - Raleigh Chopper 3-speed with crossbar T gearchanger.

    3 - Secondhand, used (yes, really) shower gel from a random crazy aunt.
