What is the most memorable gift you have given or received?

"Last Christmas, my brother, who has an interesting sense of humor, gave me a Mr. Hankey figurine."

Drew Plant, Mountain View

"The worst gift I ever received was from my mom. It was a bag of scrunchies from Thailand. They were knock-off Louis Vuitton scrunchies."

Jessica Bonham, Mountain View

"The most memorable gift I ever received was when I received a nurse's kit. I was 5 years old. I've worked as a nurse for the last 46 years."

Beverly Barefield, Mountain View

"The most memorable gift I've given is the one that I just made. I made some jazz Christmas tunes and mailed them off to people. It was more personal and I had a lot of fun making it."

Jarrell Irvin, Mountain View

"I gave a stranger an iPhone. I overheard a conversation where someone was talking about his iPod being broken. I was updating to the new iPhone that day so I just decided to give it to him."

Charles Hull, Sunnyvale
