I remember getting a TV when I was about 8. It was actually a joint Christmas present for my sister and me. It was to go into the room we shared back then. The television was a small portable black and white module. I still remember it has a knob you turned to change channels.

Without a doubt, my sister. As she always buys amazing presents. So I want to buy her something equally amazing in return. But, she is the girl that has everything! Plus, I can think about what to get her for months and then she ends up buying it for herself in November!
