The Ultimate Gift: The Saddleback Leather Company Holiday Giveaway

I’ve received a lot of great Christmas presents through the years. When I was six I got the Ghostbusters Proton Pack and Ghost Popper. When I was eight I saw Gleaming the Cube and my life was changed.  I had to get a skateboard just like Christian Slater. Santa came through with an awesome pro skateboard. Christmas morning I was out riding that thing (well, at least trying to) even though it was 20 degrees outside.  When I was ten I received the Christmas present that every boy dreams about: a Red Ryder BB Gun. I shot lots of Crystal Pepsi cans and even went on a few “hunts” out in the fields behind my subdivision. I never bagged anything unless you count the centipede I bifurcated at point blank. At least I didn’t shoot my eye out.

I loved all those presents. But the one Christmas present I remember most fondly was the electric guitar I got in 8th grade. Oh man, was that an awesome present. I guess my lust for an electric guitar began in 6th grade. I discovered music and became a budding audiophile. Favorite bands? The Beatles and Oasis (yeah, Oasis.). In 7th grade my friends and I wanted to start a band. I needed a guitar.

I asked for a guitar that year, but Santa said no. It was devastating and only fed my hunger for one. I remember that for an entire year I would go to the music shop a few times a month to look at guitars.  My longing for a guitar was so great that I was excited to get this lame inflatable gag guitar at a carnival because then I could practice fingering guitar chords.

Finally, after a year of waiting, Christmas morning arrived. I walked out to the living room where Santa dropped off our booty. Perched on my “present couch” (each of my siblings had a couch that Santa would drop stuff off on) was a Peavey sunburst guitar with accompanying Peavey amp. It was a glorious sight to behold.

Despite being 6:30 in the morning, I plugged in the guitar, cranked the amp “up to 11″ and strummed a window shattering power chord. I was in teenage boy heaven.

The Best holiday gift I ever received came this past year when my friends all pulled together to “Bring Robin Home NOW !”
I could not have asked for, or received, a more Wonderful gift !
I had been trying for 10 years to return – and somehow (this time) Everything lined up perfectly ! It still boggles my mind how they were able to make it work.

3802 Gabe December 8, 2010 at 2:03 pm

My first two-wheeler bike when I was 6. I asked for one with a number 1 on it and couldn’t believe they got one.

3803 James Schlesner December 8, 2010 at 2:03 pm

One of my favorite presents ever 2 cases of Dr.’s Brushpics ! Happy Holiidays to all !

3804 StefanD December 8, 2010 at 2:04 pm

An original Hamilton Ventura, given to me by my parents.

3805 Casey Stead December 8, 2010 at 2:04 pm

My brother and I both got 4 wheel drive RC cars from radio shack, the batteries would last like 20 minutes and we would patiently wait an hour for the batteries to charge just so we could play with it again. We got it in 1998 and those things lasted for years through summer, winter, and rainy days.

3806 Aaron Greer December 8, 2010 at 2:04 pm

My first child was, and continues to be, the best holiday gift I ever received. Every year I’m reminded of this, and as the years pass, she just keeps getting better.

3807 Evan December 8, 2010 at 2:04 pm

My best Christmas present was when I was in eighth grade, my parents got me my first airsoft gun.

3808 Dave December 8, 2010 at 2:05 pm

I don’t remember if it was a birthday or a xmas present but early on in my relationship with my wife. She got me a 1 gallon jug of Tabasco Sauce. She had noticed how much I regularly put on everything and thought I would really enjoy it. To this day more than a decade later I still have yet to open that jug and it sits on a shelf in the kitchen as a major conversation piece.

3809 Mike December 8, 2010 at 2:05 pm

When I was about 10 I got an Nintento 64 and I went absolutely apes###

3810 Kaily Young December 8, 2010 at 2:06 pm

Probably the digital camera (a Nikon) I got a couple of years ago from my mother for my birthday. It was my first digital camera, and she went well beyond her means to get it for me. And, even though, tragedy struck, and the touch screen broke, that doesn’t stop me from taking lots of video (the camera was set to video when the screen broke, so that’s all I can use it for).

3811 Thomas December 8, 2010 at 2:07 pm

The best present was actually one I gave to the whole family. I got all of us tickets to a Christmas Eve B.B. King show. It was in a old movie theatre called the Alabama Theatre. It was a great present that we all got to share in.

3812 Mark Nelson December 8, 2010 at 2:07 pm

Our portable dishwasher that my wife’s parents gave us. We use that thing every day. Saves us so much time.

3813 Leo Turner December 8, 2010 at 2:08 pm

my best present: computer

yeah, get over it.

3814 Marc December 8, 2010 at 2:08 pm

Castle Grayskull.

3815 Teke December 8, 2010 at 2:08 pm

A copy of “Gold and Fish Signatures” by reps – for my 26th birthday in 1996 – from the first and only woman I have ever loved.

3816 Brad Butler December 8, 2010 at 2:08 pm

My father is a truck driver, but he’s managed to make sure that both my sister and I went to college. Last year was particularly rough. He had been laid off the year before and was working for another company that paid much less than his old one, and on top of that he burned through his retirement fund trying to cover my graduation expenses and help my sister with tuition. I couldn’t find any decent work after graduating, so I ended up back home working at Walmart to make payments on the loans for the (apparently useless) degree I had just received. Things got so tight that it was starting to come down between house payments and food, so I started contributing what was left of my income after payments. Needless to say, we had an understanding in the family that we weren’t going to worry about presents that year. We were rather obligated to buy some for extended family who we didn’t want to know about the severity of our situation, and that was bad enough. Despite the strain, we all entered the holidays fairly cheerful and in a lot of ways it was a relief to just enjoy the holiday for the sake of good family and good food, without the taste of personal gain and to take away from the spirit of the season. Now, I mention all of this to put what I did receive into context. You see, my dad was still able to set just enough aside that, on his last haul before Christmas, he was able to take a few hours to get away from the truck and do some shopping. Not much, just a few music CDs he knew we would enjoy and a $20 expansion for a video game I had been playing. He didn’t even let my mom know, and she’s normally the one who does all the shopping and knows what we would want. The gifts may not have been much, but they showed a lot of thought. It was totally unexpected and had more generosity behind it than anything I think I’ve received since childhood. So, I suppose that’s the best present I ever received. Not really the gifts themselves, but the effort he made for them, when he knew that we were already grateful for everything he’d ever done for us.

PS: I spent that year applying to law schools and am now finishing my first semester. My sister just graduated college this past spring and my dad inherited some property over the summer. A bright light was just around the corner.

3817 Kyle Hansen December 8, 2010 at 2:08 pm

I actually don’t remember most of the Christmas gifts I have received. I guess material things aren’t that important to me anymore. But the I treasure the memories of years of getting together with the extended family every Christmas Eve for food and singing Christmas songs and reading the Christmas story from the Bible. It was the non-present-centered part of the holiday that is now the most meaningful and that I will always remember.

3818 Ty December 8, 2010 at 2:08 pm

The best Christmas present I ever received was actually when my father got my older brother a horse. My brother had always been an avid lover of animals, horses especially. At age 12, my father bought him an apaloosa / quarter horse mix. My brother was elated to tears and so was I.

3819 Matt December 8, 2010 at 2:09 pm

The best gift ever was getting to talk to my wife on Christmas morning while I was deployed to Uzbekistan.

3820 Scott Heskett December 8, 2010 at 2:09 pm

My wife wrapped up in a bow.

3821 Ben Carter-Allen December 8, 2010 at 2:09 pm

I prefer to tell the story of the best Christmas present I ever gave. My grandfather had been in a car accident that really messed up his hips. And now my always rather dapper grandfather was saddled with an ugly orthopedic cane. I went and got him a elegant oak shaft cane with a brass eagle for the grip. That was his cane of choice until he died 2 years ago. When I and my cousins were asked what we wanted, I replied that all I really wanted was the cane. It hangs on my wall, but in easy reach, as a remembrance of what a gentleman is.

3822 C. Tyler Lee December 8, 2010 at 2:09 pm

I’m 99% sure I was in the first grade… it was one of the bigger Christmases my folks did for me and my sister and after it all, my dad walks by the tree with a trash bag full of wrapping paper and stops. He says, “Hey, guys, what’s this?” and reaches beneath one of the low hanging branches and pulls out a small little box. “Hey, it’s for Tyler…”

The card attached to the front said, “From Santa, to Tyler (an honorary elf)”. So I emphatically open the thing and it’s this Green Lantern figurine — I’d been into Batman exclusively since before I could read and was just starting to get into Hal Jordan (etc) which my dad, GL fanatic, was terribly excited about.

Elf bit is a tad lame in retrospect but that’s one of my favorite memories.

3823 Chris Holder December 8, 2010 at 2:10 pm

I think I was in 8th or 9th grade when my grandpa gave me a Nokona baseball glove. I used that glove all through high school and it’s been nearly ten years and it’s still going strong. I’ve had a lot of great gifts but none that have meant as much to me for as long as that glove has.

3824 David Neudorfer December 8, 2010 at 2:11 pm

My original Nintendo with Elevator Action and Super Mario Bros has definitely been my favorite. I got it for my 25 Christmas. ;)

3825 Pete Sisti December 8, 2010 at 2:11 pm

The best Christmas present Ive ever recieved has yet to happen. It will, however, come about on this December 25, 2010. I will have all my children with me safe and happy, a great wife and it will be the youngest of my sons Paul’s first Christmas. You couldnt ask for more.

3826 Jonathan December 8, 2010 at 2:11 pm

Last year, my family chipped in, but mainly my big brother, gave me a full straight razor set from l when I got back from Afghanistan to remove my Afghani-beard. A great way to make it home.

3827 Mel Larsen December 8, 2010 at 2:11 pm

The best present I have ever received was a book of recipes from my great-grandmother — the book is so old that it includes recipes with instructions for how long you should keep the pot on the fire in the hearth, not on the stove!

3828 phillip December 8, 2010 at 2:12 pm

my first electric guitar. yamaha that i still play today, along with 6 more since then!

3829 Zack December 8, 2010 at 2:12 pm

The best present I ever received was a BB gun, years of fun as a child.

3830 Nate Bell December 8, 2010 at 2:13 pm

I loved Raiders of the Lost Ark when I was a kid and like most manly boys, I wanted Indy’s bullwhip. At the ripe old age of 10, my dad gave me a real 10′ brown leather bullwhip.

3831 Mike L December 8, 2010 at 2:13 pm

Best Christmas present I ever got, was a great Seiko watch given to me last year by my brand new bride of 13 days! Oh yea, an unfinished scarf which she is still working on for this year.

3832 Jaime Arce December 8, 2010 at 2:14 pm

The best gift I ever received was a Mickey Mouse watch. At the age of 6 they were all the rage and my dad didn’t think I was ready for the responsibility of a watch at my age. I promised up and down that I was. After a few weeks he did in fact get me one. I owned that watch for many years, changing the band on it and battery when needed until one unfortunate day playing basketball it shattered into a million pieces. That was at the age of 17 and yes I still wore it regularly. Til this day I don’t really feel the desire to wear a watch as bad as I did when I was 6. Thanks Dad!

3833 Adam December 8, 2010 at 2:14 pm

Before we had kids, my lovely wife took me on a trip to Disney World! She rules.

Now that we have two munchkins, we’ll hold off our next trip for my birthday … in January. :-)

3834 Mike December 8, 2010 at 2:14 pm

The best Christmas gift I ever received was my first guitar. It sat under the tree for 2 weeks before Christmas. Every night when my dad would leave for work I’d unwrap it and play it and then re-wrap it before he got home.

3835 Max December 8, 2010 at 2:14 pm

Last Christmas I received a really nice chef’s knife. I’ve probably used it more than any other gift, and I don’t know how I ever cooked without it.

3836 Derek December 8, 2010 at 2:15 pm

The best present I received, which was also an absolute surprise, was a Pietta Firearms 1858 New Model Army Black Powder Revolver; from my employer. Very thoughtful, and its always outstanding to get a gun for Christmas.

3837 Faustino Arredondo December 8, 2010 at 2:16 pm

A bb gun with a scope was the best for me.

3838 Michael W. December 8, 2010 at 2:16 pm

There are quite a few great gifts on this list, I’d like to add mine: plane tickets on Christmas day to visit my Dad and siblings after my parents split up. Seeing family is great and all, but I dont know if it can hold a candle to one of these awesome Saddleback Leather Co. bags. ;) Good luck everyone!

3839 M.D. Carver December 8, 2010 at 2:16 pm

I think I got one of the best ones already this year. I spent a couple years in a bluegrass band in Phillipsburg, KS. Ever since I have wanted my own banjo. I never expected to get one, but my Mom found a ’79 Ibanez in mint condition at a garage sale and had to give my Christmas present early this year.
I actually got it in late summer. My daughter (1.5 yrs old) prefers that Daddy play banjo for her instead of guitar. Nothing is more exciting than to see my little girl jubilantly dancing to me playing the banjo.
Thanks Mom!

3840 Martin December 8, 2010 at 2:17 pm

The chess game I had when I got when I was 8. Used it yesterday!

3841 Mark Love December 8, 2010 at 2:17 pm

The best present I got was a 50th Anniversary box set of Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue, from a dear friend.

3842 Brad December 8, 2010 at 2:19 pm

Best Christmas present I’ve ever received would have to be last year, when my parents told me they’d be paying for me to attend law school. This briefcase would look great on the shoulder of a soon-to-be attorney!

3843 William Kyzer December 8, 2010 at 2:19 pm

The one I remember is the year my Dad gave me his hunting knife. One day, I’ll pass this on to my son.

3844 Chris December 8, 2010 at 2:20 pm

The best present I ever received was the snowboard I got over 10 years ago. I still ride it! This bag however would displace that. Please displace it!

3845 Curtis L. December 8, 2010 at 2:20 pm

The best present I ever received, I would have to say, was my first drafting table in high school. It was at that table that art began to feel like less of a hobby and more like something I could do professionally. Eventually leading me to pursue it a career in graphics and design which I still love twelve years later.

3846 Walt Palmer December 8, 2010 at 2:21 pm

The best ever Christmas present for me was from my then girl friend, now wife. She commissioned an original oil potrait painting of my beloved airplane. Mooney N6969U (yep, that is tail number) is seen in flight, with me at the controls, flying over the Blue Ridge mountains of Virgina. The artist did make one faux pax. My girl took photos of my other honey while on the ground. The artist faithfully painted what he saw… including the wing gust locks. Now I am immortalized climbing through the clouds with locks in place.

3847 Stan Van Sant December 8, 2010 at 2:21 pm

Picture refrigerator magnets each of my kids made for me when they were in preschool.

3848 Wilson Hines December 8, 2010 at 2:22 pm

The best Christmas gift ever, was the first Christmas with my wife. In June 2000 we wed and everything in front of us and I was on the cusp of being flat out wealthy through an incredible business deal with Ciso Systems. By that Christmas, we literally were the epitome of broke, I mean by passed living on credit cards to having my parents paying the light bill. I don’t even recall what I bought her, other than what I bought us – a Hallmark Time Capsule that also worked as an ornament for the tree. Starting about four years ago, we take that capsule apart and read what was going on at the time.

3849 Jon December 8, 2010 at 2:22 pm

Duck Tales for NES when I was 10. I really liked duck tales.

3850 Adam December 8, 2010 at 2:22 pm

Bad Dudes for the NES. Probably not the best gift in hindsight (as that game kinda sucks) but at the time, I was freaking out.

3851 Wes P. December 8, 2010 at 2:22 pm

I love the North Face Bionic jacket my wife got me for Christmas two years ago. It’s not often you get a gift you use almost every day.

3852 Andrea December 8, 2010 at 2:23 pm

My favorite gift, a DSLR camera!

3853 dan orlic December 8, 2010 at 2:24 pm

Best present I ever got was my son… from my wife! :-)

3854 Harper December 8, 2010 at 2:24 pm

Best present I ever received was a go-cart. Orange with black racing stripes.

3855 Jim December 8, 2010 at 2:25 pm

When I was 7 years old, my grandmother bought me tickets to see my favorite sports team for that next summer. It was the first time she did that, but not the last. I looked forward to going to ballgames with her every summer as a child, thanks to that favorite gift.

3856 Scott Griffiths December 8, 2010 at 2:26 pm

By recommendation of this site, I asked for a Lamy fountain pen. Love it!

3857 Jeremy December 8, 2010 at 2:26 pm

I always wanted a sword, but not just any sword. I wanted my dad to give me a sword. He never did. My wife offered to buy me one, and I almost took her up on it, but I realized it wouldn’t be the same. I wanted a guy that I loved and respected to give me a sword. Then one day, after a friend returned from a trip to Europe, he presented me with a gift. It was a just a tiny little letter-opener in the shape of a sword. But he’s a guy I love and respect. That letter opener sits proudly on my desk to this day.

3858 Jacob Carr December 8, 2010 at 2:26 pm

My ultimate gift was 4 seasons of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia! WOO!

3859 Malandro December 8, 2010 at 2:26 pm

I think it was when my mom sent me some old books I had forgotten about. Great books that reminded me of my teenage years

3860 John L. December 8, 2010 at 2:26 pm

My very first “real” bike. I swear I put hundreds of miles on that thing when I was a kid.

3861 Pat December 8, 2010 at 2:26 pm

The best gift I ever recieved was the family land. It’s been in the family for generations and will be for generations to come. Thats the best present I have gotten and the best present I will give to someone else someday.

3862 Andersen Morse December 8, 2010 at 2:27 pm

one of my best presents was an Appalachian Dulcimer.

3863 Mike Scagnelli December 8, 2010 at 2:27 pm

The best gift I ever received was from my parents when I graduated high school. It’s a Seiko watch, and whenever I get stressed or lonely or depressed, I just look at it and I feel better.

3864 Joe W December 8, 2010 at 2:28 pm

a years tuition for school from my dad.

3865 Brady December 8, 2010 at 2:28 pm

Best present I ever received was nothing. Followed by my wife trying it on.

3866 Patrick December 8, 2010 at 2:29 pm

For my seventh birthday I got my second bike, first one that was not small. The Desert Rat BMX, it really was the culmination of every desire I had had up to that time.

3867 Jeff December 8, 2010 at 2:30 pm

I’ve received many gifts and blessings in this life, but I would have to include my very first “real” baseball glove. It was a red, white and blue Rawlings that I received in 1977. I was left-handed and until then had been learning to catch with the right handed first baseman’s mitt of my friend’s father. I went on to play little league, high school and college ball and went through a few more gloves. But I still have the very first: my red, white and blue Rawlings. Merry Christmas!

3868 Eric Cheung December 8, 2010 at 2:30 pm

NES when I was 6

3869 Petr December 8, 2010 at 2:33 pm

My best present was a Craftsman Mechanics Tool Set. Durable and dependable.

3870 Sean December 8, 2010 at 2:34 pm

When I was 10, my brother and I both received GT Sno-racers for Christmas. There were some serious hills near us, man what great times we had!

3871 Sean Stanek December 8, 2010 at 2:34 pm

The best gift I received was pocket size Bible my wife gave me on our first Christmas as a married couple. I carry it with me in my LL Bean bag to work and when I travel.

3872 Andrew A. McNeill December 8, 2010 at 2:34 pm

I wish I had a great story that some other people who commented have (some anonymous person paid your medical bills? Geez.), but I don’t. In fact, I can’t even think of one gift that would be my greatest gift I’ve ever received. The best I can remember is that last Christmas I got a Christmas tree ornament with a picture of the yellow lab my family had growing up. That was the best one I got last year, I don’t even remember what else I got. I think a couple books….

3873 m December 8, 2010 at 2:35 pm

A diamond necklace.

3874 Pat McN December 8, 2010 at 2:35 pm

For my tenth Christmas I received the Led Zeppelin album “Physical Graffiti.” This album spurred a life long love of music.

3875 Victor B December 8, 2010 at 2:35 pm

The best present I’ve ever received would have to be my Leatherman multitool, that my parents gave me. I rarely go anywhere without it (less rarely, nowdays, as most security people consider it’s blade to be “a weapon”), and it has probably been the most widely-useful thing I’ve ever owned.

3876 John December 8, 2010 at 2:35 pm

A go-kart – by far the best! Mobility! I thought that I owned the neighborhood!

3877 Stephen Stanger December 8, 2010 at 2:36 pm

A St.. Bernard puppy.

3878 GT Crawford December 8, 2010 at 2:36 pm

A Yellow Labrador Retriever puppy from my wife, that sweet dog was the best! I had Molly for 14 years, the wife only lasted 6!!!

3879 Justin December 8, 2010 at 2:36 pm

The best gift I ever received was on my 18th birthday. My parents let me skip school and my dad took me to play golf, just the two of us. I’ve gotten plenty of other presents, but I remember that one.

3880 Barry December 8, 2010 at 2:38 pm

This is easy. It is the reason I totally relate to the movie “The Christmas Story”. It was a Daisy Red Rider BB gun.

3881 Samantha December 8, 2010 at 2:38 pm

The best present I ever received was a pair of diamond earrings.

3882 Nick Hunter December 8, 2010 at 2:38 pm

The greatest gift I’ve ever been given is my 7″ x 12″ wacom graphire tablet. Barely a day has gone by in the years since I received it without it seeing some use. It’s changed how I create art and almost everything about how I work on my computer and it was the last thing given to me by a very dear friend before his passing.
It could certainly use a worthy leather carrying case.

3883 Eric Viau December 8, 2010 at 2:39 pm

nintendo when i was 12

3884 Mike Squire December 8, 2010 at 2:39 pm

The best gift I ever received was a big leather study Bible from my wife. I use it every day!!!

3885 Kyle Jens December 8, 2010 at 2:39 pm

My best gift was the first year I had moved in with my wife-to-be, she painted the inside of the garage to match my car and bought quite a few tools, rolling work carts, stools etc!

3886 Phil A December 8, 2010 at 2:43 pm

I’ve been more than fortunate and blessed over the years – and received lots of great manly gifts. But if I had to name one gift that stands out – I’d probably say it was a weekend getaway to the mountains with my lovely wife, including child care, from my in-laws. We had a glorious weekend at a wonderful bed and breakfast on a cool spring day with a fireplace and private porch overlooking the NC mountains. It was wonderful…

3887 Mark December 8, 2010 at 2:43 pm

Best present I’ve ever received: After 8 years of infertility, my daughter, & now a second child on the way in June.

3888 CASA1369 December 8, 2010 at 2:44 pm

The best present I ever got I still get ever day, and that is being a father too the greatest kids ever. Being a father is the most worrisome, terrifying, joyful, ecstatic, teaching, humbling, sorrowful, confusing, irritating, proud, and funny experience known to man and is a gift that can’t be bought or replace. Being a father is the best gift I ever received and something I cherish every day through good time and bad.

3889 Andrew Pyle December 8, 2010 at 2:44 pm

The best birthday present I ever received was a language book that belonged to my late grandfather.

3890 Sterling Smith December 8, 2010 at 2:44 pm

My best present was a Schwinn Stingray bike.

3891 Kenny December 8, 2010 at 2:44 pm

Mad Scientist Kit when I was 7. It inspired me to be the mad scientist that I am today.

3892 dennis mead December 8, 2010 at 2:45 pm

The best Christmas gift I ever got would have to be the year my dad gave me one of his riffles. Starting that year, and for many years following, we would go out shooting Christmas morning after opening the presents. It became a tradition where we would save all the bottles, jars, can and such all year long, and then we’d go blow the crap out of them for hours on Christmas. I miss that……..

3893 Dan December 8, 2010 at 2:45 pm

The best gift I ever received is my 1964 Plymouth Sport Fury. My wife bought it for me because that’s what I drove in high school 40 years ago. Okay, the best gift would really have to be my wife, so the Plymouth is second.

3894 Tim Castricone December 8, 2010 at 2:46 pm

Hands down, best present (much better than my intellivision or Daisy BB Gun) is my wife. We got married at Christmas 12 years ago and she has been making my life perfect ever since. Now give me the bag.

My son was born in December 2007. Greatest give to date.

Everyone deserves nice things and Christmas is the perfect time the give/get something nice. I think one of the best gifts I ever received was a laptop computer. Definitely a nice thing!

My best gift was a trip to the Dominican with my wonderful wife for our honeymoon!

My wife arranged for my best friend and college roommate to fly in from Michigan so we could go see the Florida Gators play. I hadn’t been to a game since we graduated. It was the season opener against a warm-up team, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
