Well you DID ask so here goes. Best gift I ever received (other than the gift of life itself) was a 1 iron I received for my 23rd birthday from my then wife. I always had trouble using woods, don't know if it was the xtra lenth or what but I was terrible with them. From that day on I never carried any woods in my bag. This was a great physcological edge as well when your opponents questioned you having no woods. (of course I still had balls ) The 1 iron totally changed my golf game to the point I was out distancing my buds who were using drivers off the tee. Still have it and I still love it.
