9 Heartwarming Holiday Gifts That Will Make You Wish You Were a Kid Again
Do you remember the best Christmas gift Santa ever gave you? Of course you do! After all, you didn't spend hours drafting the perfect wish list and being nice — OK, mostly naughty — for nothing. One of the best parts about the holidays will always be opening gifts and experiencing the true meaning of joy.
I received my favorite gift when I was just 6 years old. I was obsessed with Pixar's classic film A Bugs Life, and I bugged my mom to buy me the film's action figures: a blue ant and a brown grasshopper. I had no clue she would really get them for me until I woke up on Christmas morning to find the two critters sitting underneath the tree. Not only were they exactly what I wanted, but they were even bigger than I expected. And did I mention they could talk to each other? What more could a boy ask for?
With this in mind, I asked the POPSUGAR staff to take a heartwarming trip down memory lane and share their best childhood gift memories. Reading through these stories will instantly put you in the holiday spirit and make you miss being a kid. Check them out here.
