Some clothes and some DVDs. Nothing huge.
The wife and I decided to spend most of the money on the kids.

At this point, my mom got the wife and I some Swiss Colony gift set. My wife and her mom chipped in to get me a dvd recorder. That's about all right now.

So far I've only had 'Secret Santa' exchanges at work (my girlfriend celebrates on Christmas Eve and myself on Christmas Day).

My cellphone reps all gave me giftcards for the store I work (Best Buy).

I also got a $20 Circuit City giftcard (as a joke) :P and a nice case for my iPod video from PodStar. That was a nice surprise. (the 'Reaper' model)

In the in-law Christmas, received: PS3, Sony cybershot cam (debating on whether to keep this - we already have a nice DSLR), 2 PS3 games, 2 BD movies, various clothes, some good tools

My side gift exchange happening the 24th evening.

Christmas isn't Christmas without a Swiss Colony Beef Log. Without those cheeses and meats, I don't think I can get along.

So far I got a cambridge sweatshirt and two pairs of Union Jack socks from my mom, a new cellphone and three pairs of pants from Victoria's Secret from the hub. Still waiting to do a gift exchange with the sister and brother.

Oh, and I had a secret santa who sent me some fun stuff including a bunch of wonka bars, a Bumble Snowman, and a scorpion keychain (which went on the tree).

I know my wife got me a George Foreman grill and the Superman Ultimate DVD set. I'll find out what else Sunday night.

I also can't wait to see what crappy and totally useless gifts my sisters give me.

Oh yeah, I got the George Foreman too, but who counts appliances as gifts?

It's not Christmas yet

My boyfriend and I did exchange presents, as we were going to our respective parents'. He got me Hetty Wainthropp Investigates series 4, Star Trek: The Animated Series, a Get Fuzzy book, the Amy Sedaris entertaining book, A Charlie Brown Christmas sountrack, and a pair of slippers.

We have gotten a box of petit fours, three boxes of chocolates, and an Annadamma cake, a hideous knicknack* and a singing-dancing Harley Santa so far. I have been shaking the other presents, and there are some books and DVD's in the pile.

I got Nick a .... well, you can find out Monday.


*My Mom gives me something awful every year, and I either give it to someone else or sell it on eBay.

Yesterday, my best buddy, his wife and I did our gift exchange. They got me a lithograph of one of my favorite Bloom County panels (one line has been in my sig for awhile). It's signed, numbered and has an Opus doodle. It's one of the most awesome gifts ever!

I also received a Secret Santa gift from another forum and it was the Godfather DVD Collection. Awesome SS gift!

I expect Best Buy gift cards from my kids
