I’ll go first.
Gave: Rice cooker I got for my dad. I once teased him for wanting such an unnecessary kitchen item — a pot of boiling water and a lid will do just fine in my opinion. I got it for him more of as a gag since I had given him a hard time. But now almost 10 years later, he to this day still talks about how great it is and how regularly he uses it.
Received: My grandfather’s compound light microscope, passed down from my uncle. Such an antique that even had a great wooden case for it. Complete also with slides, cover slips and dyes for my then budding scientist self.
