On the BBC Radio 4 show I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, one of the rounds includes suggestions for examples of What I've Always Wanted, where the teams suggest some of the things they got for Christmas, what the said to the giver, & what they meant.

If you have any ideas you would like included, please e-mail me here, and I will add the best ones (with full credit to you of course)
