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.

Best presents: Being a part of an improv troupe-turned-family and watching a student succeed.

4002 Billy December 8, 2010 at 4:33 pm

I was six. Everyone else had bigwheels. I got the ultimate in 3-wheeled pedal-powered transportation…

Yes, my friends, Santa left me the Green Machine.

Best present ever.

4003 David Fulton December 8, 2010 at 4:33 pm

I was sharing Christmas at my mother-in-laws for the first time. She had bought Stolen a German loaf cake that had long been a tradition in my family without telling me. One morning during our visit my wife presented me with a slice of Stolen with my morning coffee. It was a wonderful surprise and really showed how much they both were trying to make sure that I had a taste of my traditional Christmas also. My wife even warmed and buttered the slice. I did not have the heart to let her know that it is served cold with no butter for a few years after. Not all presents are wrapped in a bow, but they do all come with care, forethought and love.

4004 Garrett K December 8, 2010 at 4:35 pm

Best gift ever? Definitely being able to go backpacking across Europe with my sister. Memories I will never forget.

4005 Jeff Vaughn December 8, 2010 at 4:37 pm

A few years ago my brother gave me a great 200 cigar humidor with an old world map motif. My favorite Christmas present ever.

4006 Emily December 8, 2010 at 4:38 pm

The best present I ever got was a handheld video camera, because it has become very handy during this semester of school.

4007 Dennis Pacheco December 8, 2010 at 4:38 pm

I remember one Christmas my brother and I received a huge LEGO set. We made countless things over the next year (until we lost all the pieces). Makes me want to buy another set. I’m a little smarter now, but no more creative.

4008 Pompey the Red December 8, 2010 at 4:38 pm

Best Christmas present I ever got? A set of Roman armor. Helmet, greaves, lorica segmentata…

What? I like Romans, OK!

4009 jeff copek December 8, 2010 at 4:43 pm

Best xmas gift ever was the original Nintendo, back in the day!

4010 Brian Fox December 8, 2010 at 4:45 pm

My parents took my sister and I on a trip to England- I got to experience a new culture, discover my love for good beer, AND spend time with my family. How awesome is that?

4011 Zack December 8, 2010 at 4:47 pm

Best Christmas gift ever had to be my first car. Parents gave it to me for xmas after I had gotten my license two months earlier

4012 Luke December 8, 2010 at 4:47 pm

The best present I ever receive is simply being in good health and being with friends and family every year. It truly is the greatest thing anyone can hope for.

4013 Ross Bennett December 8, 2010 at 4:49 pm

Best Birthday present was a Giant model hybrid racing/off road bicycle my dad bought for me a few years ago. Well, we bought it between us. The decision to get me a bike was the result of many conversations my dad and me had about the environment, oil, energy, and self sufficiency. I really enjoyed having those discussions with him, the bike reminds me of those happy times.

4014 Lali December 8, 2010 at 4:50 pm

My best present was a play kitchen when I was a kid. I loved that over the play sink was a play window with checked curtains on either side, showing a view of the imaginary yard beyond.

4015 D. Powers December 8, 2010 at 4:52 pm

I would have to say the best Christmas present I have recieved is books. My dad gets my sibilings and I books every year. We get lots of other great presents, but the we always end up curling up next to the fire reading books Christmas day.

4016 Dale Fortenberry December 8, 2010 at 4:54 pm

I would have to say the Saddleback Wallet I got for my anniversary recently was pretty awesome! Everybody who sees it wants one too. I have to fight them off every time I pull it out.

4017 Mike Ascough December 8, 2010 at 4:57 pm

The best gift I’ve ever gotten is my wife. Admittedly she wasn’t a “Christmas” gift, but she is the most precious gift from God that I ever have or ever will get.

4018 Patrick Moore December 8, 2010 at 4:59 pm

Best Gift Ever- Certainly nothing as cool as this briefcase.

4019 jchris December 8, 2010 at 4:59 pm

Since 1979, my grandmother has given me a Christmas ornament to go on our tree, along with a personalized note. These aren’t cheesy plasticy ornaments, either. They’re antiques from the 1930s, 40s, or 50s. When my brother and sister were born, they got annual ornaments. When I married my wife, she began to get them as well. And now my son receives one each year. My grandmother is 82 years old now and I still have every single one of my 31, my wife’s 7, and my son’s 3 ornaments and notes. And as many as we can fit on the tree go up every year.

4020 Eric George December 8, 2010 at 5:02 pm

Best gift ever : my drums. What started as an adolescent love turned into what I make my living behind today. Love it more than ever.

4021 Josh December 8, 2010 at 5:04 pm

Best present I can think of was my first baseball glove… cherished it.

4022 David December 8, 2010 at 5:06 pm

I was six when I was given an N64 for my birthday, and for years it was like I was married to the thing. Mario Kart 64 and Killer Instinct Gold were my first games, too. My two older brothers were really good at Killer Instinct, but mind you, I schooled them when it came to Mario Kart back then… I still play from time to time whenever they visit home.

And yeah, I still put the hurtin’ on them both with triple green shells.

4023 Kevin Smith December 8, 2010 at 5:07 pm

The best gift I ever received at Christmas was a small portable pool table when I was around 8 years old. My Grandfather came to visit who I rarely ever saw. I so bonded playing pool with him that Christmas, that I ended up with a special relationship with him for the next 6 years he was alive. It gives both tears of joy and sadness just thinking about that special Christmas that will remain eternal in my heart.

4024 Ben December 8, 2010 at 5:08 pm

12 gauge.

4025 Justin December 8, 2010 at 5:11 pm

My girlfriend surprised me with tickets to see my favorite band of all time, Clutch. We went into Boston and got dinner and drinks then watched the boys tear the roof off the House of Blues. Bitchin’.

4026 Jason E. Keller December 8, 2010 at 5:11 pm

The best Christmas present I’ve ever received was my grandfather’s Cleveland Brown’s jacket. As a kid I used to wear it around the neighborhood on walks when we would visit our grandparents. 1996, after I graduated from Marie Corps basic training, and a year after he passed away my uncle gave me the jacket. He was my idol and still is my hero. Yes, It’s from the 80′s and yes, I still wear it. I have to be honest…even if I win the Saddleback bag, it will be the second best present I’ve ever received.

4027 Dónall December 8, 2010 at 5:14 pm

It seems to be a common theme in these comments, but my favourite presents were an Aria Pro II electric guitar, a surprisingly loud Crate amp and a Zoom pedal. I had way more music equipment than I could actually handle and spent the rest of the year just trying to master the basic settings on the Zoom!

4028 Jason December 8, 2010 at 5:16 pm

By far the greatest gift I ever received for Christmas was an Optimus Prime Transformer when I was about 8 years old. Knowing I probably wouldn’t get it due to it’s asking price (near $100.00) in 1985, I just about gave up, only to have my grandparents surprise me with it. Needless to say, it was an amazing shock and awesome surprise.

4029 Adam Ewell December 8, 2010 at 5:17 pm

My best Christmas was when I was 16 and got a dog. My mom had already named him after her uncle and therefore wouldn’t respond to anything other than Lumpy.

4030 Alan December 8, 2010 at 5:18 pm

Two years ago a couple at my church gave me a Cort SJ-10 acoustic guitar. By far the best gift I have ever received and it sounds amazing!

4031 Larry Blount December 8, 2010 at 5:19 pm

The most memorable? I’m not too sure. But the best was actually part of a stereo system I received back in high school. Now it turned out it wasn’t the stereo itself (which went the way of all electronics) that would turn out to be the true hit. The faux component system came with a stand that had a place for records (yeah, that old), the system box, and one extra self for one of them new fangled CD players.

I’ve tried to get rid of that stand literarily DOZENS of times through the many “incarnations” of my life from high school to college to single life to committed relationship, to single life again (lather, rinse, repeat), to marriage. Each time I took it apart and relegated it to the donate/trash pile, something would need to have a pedestal, holder, stand, organizer, et al… And back together it went to perform yet another task. My wife finally declared, “We are never to get rid of this. It’s just too darn useful.”

So pay attention to the minutia in Christmas. Those things may end up being the world beaters.

4032 Nick Lehrling December 8, 2010 at 5:19 pm

When I was about 5, I wanted a “three wheeler” so bad I could taste it. I did not think that ol’ Saint Nick could bring me one. So early Christmas morning, I got up to find, at my surprise, a huge (to me) awesome plactic tricycle, Rambo edition. It had a gun turret sticking straight out of the front, and simulated machine gun sounds when you peddled. It was the coolest thing I had laid eyes on (pretty much still applies), and I will never forget how tough, manly, and awesome of a present it was. I just wish I still had it for my 4 year old son! Thanks.

4033 Jay December 8, 2010 at 5:20 pm

The most excellent Christmas present would be getting this saddleback leather bag.

4034 Ian December 8, 2010 at 5:24 pm

The best present i’ve ever gotten was a leather bound first edition set of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

4035 johnnyxxl76 December 8, 2010 at 5:26 pm

I remember getting the gift you were longing for, for year’s and kept being told no. I never did get the guitar but I did get the tools not cheap junk tools but good craftsmen and mack tools.

4036 Christopher Broussard December 8, 2010 at 5:26 pm

The best present I ever received was an Epiphone Emperor Joe Pass guitar that my wife gave me for our twelfth anniversary, with pearl inlays.

4037 David G December 8, 2010 at 5:32 pm

The best gift I ever recieved was either my Nintendo Entertainment system, my Boy Scout knife, or my father-in-law’s old carrhart jacket.

4038 David G December 8, 2010 at 5:33 pm

No- it was when my Dad gave me his trumpet. It’s a Bach Mercedes, he played it when he was in the Army Band stationed in Korea right after the war.

4039 C December 8, 2010 at 5:39 pm

My great grandfather’s wedding ring. I never met the man, but I was named after him. Wearing this ring from 1906 reminds me daily of where I came from.

4040 Christopher Lee December 8, 2010 at 5:43 pm

My favorite gift was a green bmx bike. My parents pretended to get upset at us and told us to clean the basement. As we went downstairs we cursed them for ruining our Christmas, only to find our bikes in the corner. I rode that bike till the wheels fell off. But that is another story.

4041 Rick December 8, 2010 at 5:44 pm

Best gift was a car for the year I turned 16.

4042 Chris December 8, 2010 at 5:47 pm

Best gift I ever received was my first BB gun, complete with scope!

4043 Bill D December 8, 2010 at 5:47 pm

When I was 16 my Dad bought me an inexpensive 12 gauge shotgun. Mossberg 500, from the pawn shop. I still have it and use it often. I grew to be rather obsessed with all forms of shooting and it will never leave my collection. I have broken so many orange clays with that thing (but not nearly as many as I would like to claim).

Okay, by 16, I was already pretty obsessed with guns and shooting.

4044 Jeremiah December 8, 2010 at 5:48 pm

My first bike! Rode that thing to death… It’s still sitting in my Grandparent’s barn. :D

4045 Jesse December 8, 2010 at 5:51 pm

A R/C airplane

4046 Andrew Wilson December 8, 2010 at 5:52 pm

A second generation iPod. Didn’t even ask for it and never would’ve expected it. Pure awesome.

4047 Steve December 8, 2010 at 5:54 pm

My Lionel trains! Super-o gauge!

4048 Kevin December 8, 2010 at 5:56 pm

The best gift I ever received was actually two gifts: Linkin’ Logs and a Hamster. I trapped him inside Linkin’ Log mazes almost every night until he finally escaped not only my maze but the house. Who leaves the screen door open!? I mean, come on, boy playing with hamster here!

4049 Martin E Massinger December 8, 2010 at 6:03 pm

The best gift I ever received was the Christmas I was introduced to hunting. My wife got me a great pair of binoculars. My wife’s folks got me a pair of Redwing boots. My brother-in-law got me a great Browning cold-weather hunting jacket, and set me up on a deer hunt with him. It was a great Christmas!

4050 Paul December 8, 2010 at 6:04 pm

The year was 1985, the gift was a red shwine Scrambler peddle bike. I remember running through the house yelling “he remember, he remembered”. When i got closer to the bike I was disappointed because there were no training wheels. My dad told me that it would take longer to lear how to ride if i had training wheels. I did not want to believe him at the time. it turns out that one of m fondest memories with that bike was the day my dad taught me how to ride. I recall my dad holding the bike steady as he taught me how to get balanced and peddle all at the same time, and how just when I was getting the hang of it, he let go of the bike without me realizing it. I looked back and he was at the top of the street. I got nervous and crashed! He was right, I pick it up quick with a little help, and have him to thank for it.

Merry Christmas :-)

4051 Isaac December 8, 2010 at 6:05 pm

When I was younger I was addicted to the Lego pirate sets. All year long I had been asking for the biggest Lego pirate ship at that time, the “Black Seas Barracuda”. Come Christmas morning, there it was, in all of it 865 piece glory! I locked myself in my room determined to build the whole vessel in one day. 10 hours later it was done, as I came out of my room with the ship in hand, I was welcomed with a thunderous applause from my family. Yeah, it was a great day!

4052 Jon December 8, 2010 at 6:06 pm

Best Christmas present…my two Tonka trucks. Went everywhere with those things.

4053 Pete December 8, 2010 at 6:11 pm

I hope I’m not too late…

4054 Pete December 8, 2010 at 6:13 pm

My best Christmas present was a survival tool with a compass, binoculars and a whistle I got from my grandparents.

4055 Dave December 8, 2010 at 6:16 pm

Best Christmas present was the Millenium Falcon, 1979. Sure, there have been better/nicer gifts since, but nothing beats the excitement I felt when I saw that one under the tree. Giddy.

4056 Leo Doom Occulta December 8, 2010 at 6:17 pm

Best present ever? My wife staying married to me a whole year (and counting)!

4057 Patrick Greene December 8, 2010 at 6:20 pm

An Amazon Kindle and a $100 Amazon gift card.

4058 Nicholas December 8, 2010 at 6:25 pm

Best gift I ever got, my parents bought me a grand piano when I was younger, I had been playing piano for about 9 years at that point. We didn’t really have the money to spend on something like that, but they got it for me anyway. I still play it.

4059 BigChaps December 8, 2010 at 6:28 pm

As a Kid, it was always Lego, my brother and I had a big box of lego and each year, the collection would grow as more and more kits made their way to the Christmas tree.

As a grown-up, My daughter was born on the 21st and we got to leave the hospital on Christmas Eve. Never a more wondorous gift was ever received than my little princess.

4060 Ajay Baksh December 8, 2010 at 6:29 pm

The best present I ever received was a toy train set.

4061 Kyle December 8, 2010 at 6:42 pm

Definitely Thunderhawk from M.A.S.K. I remember ripping the picture of it out of some catalog weeks before Christmas and carrying it with me until Christmas morning.

http://mikedinthehead.wordpress.com/2010/01/15/flashbacks-vol-1-mask-toys-from-my-childhood/

4062 Matt December 8, 2010 at 6:45 pm

Probably the best gift I’ve been given is my mink bomber jacket.
I suffer from horrible lower back pain which is greatly exacerbated by cold weather. My wife scrimped and saved to get this for me, knowing that there was nothing warmer.

PS: I too got a Red Rider BB gun as an adolescent from my father. A definite runner up gift.

4063 James Evens December 8, 2010 at 6:46 pm

The best present that I’ve received was a Yamaha PW 50 when I was 5 years old. My dad gave it to me and I still have it. I rode it all over the place, it helped me get interested into motors and more importantly cars.

4064 Becky Knopp December 8, 2010 at 6:47 pm

Best present ever! My husband found a Singer Featherweight sewing machine – manufactured the same year as me (so she’s pretty old…). I love it! something my age that STILL WORKS. It’s my main sewing machine now. And every time I stitch it, I think of the wonderful guy who gave it to me…

4065 Curtis McFee December 8, 2010 at 6:50 pm

A sock monkey made from the tiny socks of my six month old boy by my lovely wife :`o)

4066 John Caruso December 8, 2010 at 6:50 pm

Best present was when my sister got me a Homebrew starter kit. Those 2 buckets and few tools have spawned into my main hobby. Everytime the family gets together and I open a bottle of wine or tap a keg of beer, my sister proudly proclaims, “I am responsible for this…”

4067 Luca December 8, 2010 at 6:53 pm

When I was living overseas, I told my girlfriend how much I loved American pumpkin pie. To surprise me, she spent hours tracking down a pumpkin, (which is quite a challenge out of season in Northern Germany) did all the prep-work, and brought it over to my apartment. I’ll never forget how much fun we had baking that pie together, or how much fun we had eating it!

4068 Matt Reinig December 8, 2010 at 6:53 pm

This will definitely make a great present for any man.

The best present I have ever received was my snowboard, since I love snowboarding as much as I can. Been snowboarding since 13. Had the snowboard for 3 years now!

4069 Scott Boardwine December 8, 2010 at 6:59 pm

The best present I received was during the Christmas when my fathers business, a body repair shop, was going through an unusual slow period. As happened during the eighties often to small businesses.
He gave me Statue of Liberty commemorative coins. I knew how he had to leave work a second job for the meanest man in the town putting away freight at night so he could give us kids a decent Christmas.
I still have those coins in pristine condition.

4070 Aaron Krueger December 8, 2010 at 7:00 pm

This year I received some much needed transportation!
A 2002 Honda Civic Si.

4071 Michael Luna December 8, 2010 at 7:00 pm

The best gift I ever received was given to me by my sister. Growing up we always watched Rocko’s Modern Life and one particular episode has lead to a life long bond between my sister and I. In the episode Rocko had surgery and all of his body parts that had been removed came down from heaven including his tonsils which said in excitement “HEY CHIEF!” My sister and I thought it was so funny that we have called that to each other for over 10 years. One Christmas my sister, knowing my love for pocket watches, gave me a special pocket watch with “HEY CHIEF” engraved into it. It combined to of my favorite things, my collection of pocket watches and the love I have for my sister and family. It was truly the best gift! EVER!!!!!

4072 Preston December 8, 2010 at 7:00 pm

A skateboard. I dreamt of being a pro skater.

4073 Martin December 8, 2010 at 7:01 pm

The Best Christmases are always the ones when you were a kid, waking up to a whole slew of presents from Santa. I can’t recapture those old feelings now, so I’d have to say the best Christmas gift I’ve ever received was this giant Lego Castle, and I mean giant. It had flags, horses(!) and knights!

4074 Lori Stokes December 8, 2010 at 7:03 pm

My very own super nintendo!!!

4075 Jacob Jovanovic December 8, 2010 at 7:04 pm

This year I’m hoping to receive my favorite present ever… a Saddleback leather briefcase from Art of Manliness.(wink,wink)

4076 Nathan December 8, 2010 at 7:05 pm

The best Christmas present I have ever received was the Christmas after returning home from Basic training and AIT after enlisting in the Army in ’06. On Christmas Day my father took me aside, presented to me a plain wrapped box and said nothing. I opened it to find all of my Grandfather’s WWII service ribbons, official photo, medals, journal, papers and personal photo album from his service in the Pacific Campaign. He told me thank you and how proud my grandfather (whom had passed before I was old enough to know of him) would be right now. I don’t think I will ever receive a ‘gift’ as memorable as that one.

4077 Sej December 8, 2010 at 7:08 pm

The best gift I ever got was a handmade quilt from my mother in my favorite colors, a few months before she died. I sleep under it every night and it makes her feel a little closer.

4078 Stephen December 8, 2010 at 7:09 pm

My very first lego set

4079 M. Arnold December 8, 2010 at 7:09 pm

My favorite gift was a blue ten-speed bike.

4080 Jim Helge December 8, 2010 at 7:34 pm

My best present was a simple pocket knife. Never go anyplace (except an airport) without a knife.

4081 Jeremy Meeks December 8, 2010 at 7:36 pm

My wife always gives me amazing gifts, this year it was a bottle opener the size of a credit card that she had engraved with “I found him whom my soul loves” – SOS 3:4

4082 Nick December 8, 2010 at 7:39 pm

A Gransfors-Bruks wildlife hatchet….hand forged by vikings (Swedes)

4083 Brett Rimer December 8, 2010 at 7:40 pm

A Crossman BB gun when I was 8 years old.

4084 David Kojnik December 8, 2010 at 7:46 pm

My favorite childhood gift was a six million dollar man action figure. He had some really cool features ,from the back of his head you could look through his magnifying eye and his arm modules were interchangable.

4085 Stump December 8, 2010 at 7:54 pm

A black-oxide Leatherman.

4086 Michael Childs December 8, 2010 at 8:03 pm

The best present ever was my son… born on Christmas Day!

4087 Daniel Fryar December 8, 2010 at 8:03 pm

I got engaged just before Christmas. The future I recieved then has been a wonderful life.

4088 Paul December 8, 2010 at 8:03 pm

Swiss Army Tachymeter Watch from my wife. Before that, the original Atari – before they called it the 2600.

4089 Tim Mead December 8, 2010 at 8:04 pm

Without a doubt, the BEST gift I ever receives was a Kongsbrg 30.06 hunting rifle. EVERYONE in the family pitched in for this thing, and it came as a total surprise when I got it. To date, it is still the best hunting rifle I have ever, or for that matter MAY ever own.
Thanks,

T. K. Mead

4090 Patrick December 8, 2010 at 8:07 pm

A baitcasting fishing reel and, of course, the reason for the season.

4091 Jeff December 8, 2010 at 8:08 pm

When I was young, I ordered a very expensive import model airplane from a hobby store. I had little knowledge of the true value of a dollar and when the plane came in months later, I had no way to pay for it.

I wrestled between fright of getting in trouble for ordering something and not being able to pay for it and disappointment for not getting the plane I had always wanted. That X-mas, I was completely suprised when I opened a present and it was that plane…the best gift I ever got…and the only gift, that X-mas!

4092 Matt Hunter December 8, 2010 at 8:09 pm

The best gift I ever received was a thesaurus, given to me by my grandparents. In the liner, my grandmother wrote “now you’ll be able to think up better insults!” The gift was that inscription; it made my angry teenage self think about how I presented myself to those around me.

4093 Jerrod December 8, 2010 at 8:11 pm

A Marlin Glenfield Model 60 .22 rifle at age 12….a lot of blue jays in NW OK paid for their annoying sounds that spring.

4094 Bryant December 8, 2010 at 8:21 pm

When i was 16 my parents got me a guitar amp that i just knew they would never be able to afford. Best gift ever.

4095 Kansas City December 8, 2010 at 8:25 pm

A mini logitech keyboard a couple of years ago from my girl. I only looked at it once in a store a couple of months before and had planned on getting it for myself at some point. She had no idea how cool I thought it was and thought to get it for me quite out of the blue. It was also the last gift I have from her which makes it very special too.
