I love it when the gift has special meaning, like when my guy gave me an antique-style globe ‘cause he knows how much I love globes and maps, or when he surprised me with this hard-to-find book on churches. It's also quite touching when the gift feels like it will last more than one lifetime-like when my mom gave my sisters and me identical crucifix pendants on the one Christmas we were all home for the holidays. :) —Mia, Editor in Chief

mimi.jpg I'm a gadget girl, so I love getting anything techie. The best Christmas gift I got would be the Canon IXUS 900 I bought for myself last year. It's not exactly a digital SLR, but it takes mighty fine pictures with 10 megapixels! —Mimi, Managing Editor

angel.jpg My very first journal. (It came in a pink box with a padlock and everything!) It was given to me by my parents when I was 12 years old and it started my love affair with writing. :) Angel, Assistant Features Editor
marla.jpg My best friend became my best friend on the first week of December nine years ago. Nothing beats that as the best Christmas present ever! :) Marla, Assistant Lifestyle Editor
macy.jpg The best Christmas gift I ever received (so far!) is my tiny Ixus65. I got it as a gift last year from my mom and my Kuya. They teased that they weren't able to find a camera for me, but when I got home from work one December night, a pretty box was sitting on my bed. I had to ask them if I could open it already before Christmas. Haha! —Macy, Web and Mobile Producer
roch.jpg The best Christmas gift was when my parents gave me my dream Barbie doll house. I've been bugging them to get it for me but they kept on telling me it was expensive. To my surprise, I saw a big pink box under our tree one Christmas eve and I felt I was the happiest child alive that night. :D —Roch, Web and Mobile Producer
