Advent Calendar: Gifts
It was a tradition in our family to reuse boxes. When I gave my father his first computer (a ZX81, so it shows just how long ago it was!), he was rather hurt, saying that it wasn't nice to give someone a present in a box of something they really wanted. Then he opened the ZX81 box, to find: a ZX81...I remember that it cost me an entire week's wages, but the ecstatic look on his face was priceless.
