See Our 94.3 The Point Personalities’ BEST Childhood Christmas Gifts
We all have that one Christmas gift we got as a kid that rocked our world. You know, our personal equivalent of the Red Ryder BB Gun for Ralphie. If I asked you what your most memorable gift off all time was, it would take you right back to that moment wouldn't it?
We all want that epic parental win of getting our kid the kind of gift that they talk about for the ages. Maybe you need some ideas? Why not draw some inspiration from us here at 94.3 The Point? I asked all of my fellow on air family what their super-special gift was and here is what they had to say:
Lou has always loved Christmas but when he was 8 years old he got the gift that he would always remember! It was a black and red Huffy bike! Of course this is more than just a bike, it was freedom for little Lou to peddle around Staten Island like he owned that place! A brand new set of wheels is a timeless gift idea!
As I kid I always used to pretend that my bedroom was my own little apartment. I wanted to decorate it that way...like a little adult. Do you know any other 9 year olds who have a fern in the corner? LOL! So when my mom got me my very own mini fish tank for my bedroom, I was over the moon. The coolest part is that my mom took the extra step the night before to clean it, fully set it up and stock it with my new fish. It was on a stool, plugged in under the tree all lit up and when I walked in the visual was amazing! I'll never forget it! If you go this route make sure to go the extra mile and set it up...in the box it would not have been as electric.
Wanted a bunk bed with a slide! Whoa...I wish I thought of this one! Cool beds were a thing of the 80's...remember Ricky Schroder's super enviable race car bed? Well for that matter dude had a train in his living room. In any event, Nicole has always been a big thinker and this is proof!
So little Matt Ryan said his best Christmas gift ever was when he got his very own TV for his bedroom! I SO agree! That would be the other best gift I ever got. It was so much more than just a TV, it was a window into the outside world. It was a huge way to visualize what you wanted as an adult...I wanted to grow up to be like the media people I saw on the local news. Matt Ryan probably just wanted to watch The Dukes of Hazzard in peace. Leave it to me to make this deep. LOL!
Can you believe Jimmy G said that same thing that I did! His most memorable gift was his very own fish tank too! He had colorful fish and loved picking out the stuff that went inside their underwater world! This is a similar one to what Jimmy had...I found it on Amazon for under $50.
So I think the theme here is if you want to rock your kids' world for Christmas, get them a gift that makes them feel empowered or have their own thing going on. It seems like anything that they can upgrade their bedroom with or can give them independence (Lou and his new set of wheels) is a homerun!
