Open thread about gifts. Gifts you gave, gifts you received, gifts you didn’t want to receive.

My parents, bless them, got me one of those novelty Monopoly games. Despite me hating board games and never playing them. Despite me never playing them with anyone... including them when I was a kid, because I never liked them. And the icing on this well-meant cake is that “St.Louis-Opoly” has all these properties that wouldn’t even be for sale. Like they didn’t even copy the game in a functional way.

Regarding gifts I am proud of, I found a super fun gift at a theater show a few months back which hits like 3 things my bestie loves! And it can hang on her Christmas tree.
