Most medium gift...

Getting a set of Legos that I already had. At first, I thought "I already have this", followed immediately by "Hey! More Legos! I'm gonna cannibalize that shit, anyway.".

Actually, that's a pretty good net win, so I don't know that it counts as "average".

I know, but I choose not to take anything from animals. Plus, I find them itchy (the scarf not the sheep Laugh out load ). And, it was an ugly fucking scarf Tongue

No refined sugars? (Bone char)
No fossil fuels?
The occasional animal that ended up as a petroleum based product... Which is then used in some plastic products too.

Vegan life must either be worse than living Amish, or filled with cognitive dissonance and hypocrisy.

I never said I was a martyr. I don't like the taste of animal flesh--I find it revolting. That and I do love animals and do *the best I can* to avoid harming them. I don't get on anyone for choosing to eat meat either because I am just not militant about it.

RE: Medium Gift Ever?
If the question is about a medium... I've received a set of pencils, and a few paints.

If the medium is specifically "av", its pretty limited to stacks of DVDs or other audio/video crap...

If it's about shitty gifts, your title and OP are terrible. I've received several home made wool wearables... Or unwearables... I honestly don't know how anyone can wear that stuff. It's like dry sandpaper. Even cashmere and merino are awful.

Back on topic: I do remember getting a "remote controlled car" when I was like 10 or 12. I say "remote" because it was connected by a 2 foot cord to a car the was about a foot long, only 1 wheel drove it. So I had to run after this thing because the cord was so short and it always turned to the right because the left wheel was the only thing pushing it. It had so little traction that my dad and I had to glue sandpaper to the one working wheel. It also guzzled the batteries. I still had fun with it though.
