What have you been given that has been exactly what you wanted, and what absolutely totally pointless items have you received. I like to receive practical presents. Had a Black & Decker Workmate many years ago and it's still going strong. Screw drivers, saws, drills etc, and golf equipment, have always been willingly received. Haven't received too many naff presents over the years, not that I can recall, as I tend to drop enough hints.
