It was actually two last year. (For my family,) we order the things we want. Last year, I put a nice, Android tablet as my first choice and a good computer monitor as my second. I needed the tablet as my laptop died the second time and I needed a new computer to take notes in class for but I was hating every idea of a laptop. Then I also could have really used a monitor as I was using a tiny TV (bad for reading or typing anything text) and a massive TV (text size versuses needed distance gets bad, so everything is still hard to read, not to mention that typing and using the mouse is a pain.) Both together was expensive and probably not going to happen, so I was ready to have to spend money for an alternative for one of the two (which I really didn't want to do.)
Come the time I come home for Christmas, I noticed a giant box but with no tag. I figured that it was a monitor (that, or my sister asked for something big.) By Christmas morning, I got to open the big box and, yep, a monitor. Exactly what I asked for. Later, I was then handed a smaller box. No idea what it could be (because truth be told, it was in the box it was mailed in,) I opened it to find a stiff, black box with a bronze colored device on the front. I got a tablet.
I was glad that I got both that I didn't care that I only got one other thing on my list (that I can remember anyways.)
No, seriously. As greedy as that sounds, that's the best gift I've ever received and still usually get some every Christmas (and Birthday). You see, I'm frugal- I save 90% of what I'm given/earn, as I have no current need to spend it. The last time I spent a bunch of money was on my first car, and it was a damned good deal.
I rarely spend money on things I don't need. I'm saving it for a good downpayment on a decent home once I move out. That, or I'll be financially secure in a good apartment. Whatever the case when I move out, I know I'll have a good stock of cash waiting for a rainy day.
Cash is such a good gift to me because it all goes toward my future wellbeing.
