Even the Trump Family Re-Gifts Christmas Presents

"Look, I've been re-gifted presents that I've given my family," says the real-estate scion, 30. "You know, they're like, 'Oh, great, thanks!' and then you end up getting it back the next year.
"It's like, 'You know I gave you this to you last year, right?' And they're like, 'No, it's a different one!' "
As a child – and the eldest of The Donald and his first wife, Ivana – Donald Jr.'s Christmases were traditional.
"We'd run downstairs and jump into our parents' bed, just like everyone else," remembers Trump Jr., who, with wife Vanessa, is expecting a second child in February. "Then we'd go over to our grandparents' place in Queens [New York] and do lunch."
The Trump family holiday is still fairly routine: Donald Trump – described by his son as "a blue-collar guy with a big balance sheet" – just wants a turkey dinner and then to "watch football."
