The Gift That Never Gave



We all have one, the gift that, as a child, you REALLY hoped you would receive. You wanted it so badly that nothing else mattered.

And then you didn't get it.

Oh the pain. 

Now I'm sure, that over the years, that pain has faded down to a dull ache, but occasionally you remember that gift that you never got, and wonder if your life would have been better if you had got it.

For Claire, from http://ninjakillercat.co.uk it was a Mr Frosty Maker. 

For @LadyTubeDriver it was a cabbage patch doll.


For me, it was a puppy, not a real one let me add, just one that did backwards somersaults and barked and moved. 

But how about you?

What is the Christmas gift that you desperately wanted and never got?


Let me know.

    1. I had a greengrocers stall. It was huge, had plastic fruit and a till and everything. I think you should buy yourself a post office and play with it. Reignite your inner child

  5. Not Christmas...birthday. I was promised a horse. We (my Grandad, Mum and I) went to see it twice. I rode it (I was 11) Then came the bombshell: "Sorry, we're going abroad* for 2 weeks, so we can't afford your horse".
    If WTF (& my 1981 vocab) had existed, I would have had my mouth washed out!
    Still want a horse!
    *Our first trip abroad - Majorca. Had a lovely time, but...someone else was riding *my* horse. Mum knows I've never forgiven her!

  9. Erm. You're gonna hate me.

    My parents always got me what I wanted. I'm an only child and my mum and dad are wonderful people who I adore.

    Don't get me wrong, I was not spoiled, as they taught me the value of money and made sure I was polite and well-mannered, but they got me the important things I wanted.

    And yes, after a year of lessons, they got me a pony for my 11th birthday.

    Thanks mum and dad. Love you lots x

  15. I am still gutted I never got a cabbage patch kid, when 2 girls accross the road had about 6 between them and only one would share!

  16. I wanted a Furby really badly because they were everywhere - you couldn't turn on kids TV without seeing an ad for one. I made plenty of noise about it, always pointed it out. I wanted a pink one but would have settled for yellow. Christmas day came... and my sister got the Furby. I cried and stormed off to my room. Mum, if you're reading this - that was cruel.

  20. I really wanted a Barbie and Ken dressed in ball outfits -on Christmas day I got the Ken (in his shiny pink tux) but Mum said she couldn't get the matching Barbie and got me a ballerina Sindy instead. How was he supposed to take her to the dance in her body suit and leg warmers?! (very spoilt I know!) ;-)
