I loved all the things my family got me. I really really like the cd my son bought, because it's an artist he really doesn't like, but he knows I LOVE this song on it, it has a lot of special meaning.
But I have to say, my favorite is the picture my dd gave me - it's the two of us on one side, mounted on paper with love, hope, happiness written around on it. On the other side is a poem she wrote me, talking about how scary and painful the world is, with war and death and everything, but how I'm a shield from the pain for her, and how I bring her comfort and make the tears go away. (my dh is military and has been deployed a lot / got home not too long ago, for reference to why the poem was about that sort of stuff.)
