Gift: A human baby.
One particularly zealous admirer of country superstar Dolly Parton trumped all fan gifts with a truly one-of-a-kind memento: a baby. In an interview with Chicago's Windy City Times, Parton described the experience of finding a baby left on her doorstep by a fan she could only characterize as "loony."
"We came home one day and there was a baby in a box at our gate with a note in it. The note said, 'My name is Jolene, my momma has left me here and she wants you to have me,'" she said. "Of course, we all freaked out!"—Jeff Royer
