Christmas is just the best, but it takes a pretty special gift to stand the test of time. But these gifts manage it! Even 20 years later, we wouldn't be even a little disappointed to find them under the tree.

One of the greatest systems of all time — and the way retro gaming has taken off, we'd love to unwrap one of these bad boys. Who's up for Mario Kart?

2. Tamagotchi

I'm convinced that there are landfills along the Eastern seaboard that double as Tamagotchi mass graves given all the kids who neglected them. All those '90s kids can get a do-over, though, because they're back for Christmas '17.

3. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

The first movie came out in 2001, but Harry Potter made his debut in print four years earlier, in 1997. Even 20 years later, it's always a treat to dive back into those pages. Always.

4. "Spiceworld" by Spice Girls

Admit it, you can't help singing along whenever "Spice Up Your Life" comes on the radio in the car, right? Just like your teenage self, driving your parents nuts back in 1997 if you got the CD for Christmas.
