What did you get for Christmas? (2012 Edition)

As Christmas approaches, I'm sure people are already starting to get gifts.

What did Santa bring you this year? List 'em as you get 'em.

What? Unless someone is literally dying and wants to give me a gift, I'm not getting shit until Christmas Day.

If I'm dying, I don't give a fuck if you get a gift from me before I die. You get ME a gift before Christmas!

I will probably give myself a new videocard. Something to hold me until the next Xbox is released.

Currently not dating anyone so no gifts for me.

But I am getting my son Halo 4 and COD:BO2 which I play just as much as he does so those are pretty much gifts to myself.

Seems a little early for this. So, nothing so far. Same goes for Christmas 2013 and beyond.

Re: What did you get for Christmas? (2012 Edition)

I'm "getting" (meaning I purchased and my wife wrapped):
- Nexus 10
- Kindle Paperwhite
- 50MM carbon clincher wheelset (bicycling stuff)
- Fleece-lined LL Bean robe for loafing around
- a pair of Merrell Trail Gloves (which are actually shoes)

This is a good haul, I'd say.

She'd gotten me a wallet because my old one was falling apart...then it literally fell apart, so she gave it to me early.

The movies were so that we could watch them during the season. Everything else comes on Christmas.

I do have another secret Santa exchange with my work team Wednesday.

My mother-in-law got me a GPS. That is probably about it for me.

I got the Sam the Sham album Ten Pentacles on vinyl the other day. It's not available digitally or on CD. But that was a Hanukkah present. I won't get my Christmas presents for two more weeks.

Re: What did you get for Christmas? (2012 Edition)

I'd be happy if I can scrape together the money to get my kids what they want (iPod Touch 5G x 3).

The wife and I are going to wait till January when we've hopefully got more disposable cash. I'm really wanting a new amp for the home theater (old one died right after the move). The wife wants an iPad.

It was upgrade time, so I bought myself a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to replace my trusty old Dell Streak 5.
