Presents and gift giving are common during the holiday season and with Christmas just a few days away, the Boulder City Review visited students and community members to find out what their favorite Christmas presents were.

“A bike. It was blue. It has two wheels and is fun to ride.”

“A robot, because it can dance.”

Dylan Smith, 6, a first-grader at Mitchell Elementary

“A bow and arrow. When it flew by it whistled.”

“A stuffed animal. It was a dog. It was cute, fluffy, soft and really big.”

Mieke Schutlz, 6 1/2, a first-grader at Mitchell Elementary
