    I've been seeing a couple of separate threads about what people got for Christmas, so I thought I'd make one where everyone could post what they received or gave, as the case might be, for whatever holiday they celebrated.

    I got -

    Duke Blue Devils (My favorite sports team, which is an university) heavy jacket
    Duke Blue Devils t-shirt
    Duke Blue Devils socks
    Duke Blue Devils beer jacket
    Duke Blue Devils car emblem
    Duke Blue Devils watch
    Bedsheets and comforter set (My dog, Zee, tore the old one just a week ago...)
    Handcrafted coffee mug and a blue cup
    Ratcheting cargo straps
    Ratcheting wrench that will work with 12mm up to 20mm nuts/bolts.
    18 Volt cordless power drill
    Super sticky tape stronger than duct tape
    Handheld LED work light and a larger wireless LED work light
    Cocktails calendar with recipes
    Small Beers of the World book with bottle cap opener and coasters
    J.K. Rowling's new adult novel, The Casual Vacancy
    TED (movie)
    The Walking Dead Season Two
    Assassin's Creed III for Xbox 360 (Set during the Revolutionary War)

    But my favorite things were these two glass decors that my 11 year old and 8 year old nieces gave me -



    And my favorite gift that I gave to a friend of mine who became number 18 of only 18 Firearms Examiners in the entire state. There are only like 200 Firearms Examiners in the entire United States and she just became one of them this month.

    A solid milk chocolate gun complete with a gun case! -


    How about you guys/gals?

    My favorite and biggest gift so far is the Lego Pet Shop. Yes, I am an adult married man. ;D That is an epic set though.

    My in-laws arrive from Chicago and Memphis tomorrow, so I'll get a second and possibly bigger Christmas tomorrow evening. :)

    I got an outfit (jeans, top and some jewelry), a giftcard to dressbarn, a hot cocoa giftset which includes mexicocoa(dark chocolate with mexican spices... should be interesting?) and the highlight of my life: a $25 regal giftcard to catch up on my movies thanks to my bro who I miss like crazy :'( Oh well :D

    I wanted to give my mom Cirque du Solei tickets but the closest was Norfolk, VA ... so she got a $50 visa card and a bar of lemon pepper dark chocolate, which I hope she likes... why pepper and chocolate I dunno. Anywho, we'll try again for her birthday. My (other) bro got some Vikings stuff, and the coworkers got Starbucks giftcards (one got a movie card for Les Mis :D) and flavored marshmallows!

    My hubby and I don't usually get each other stuff ( except little stocking stuffers )

    We mainly concentrate on our son ( which usually gets only ONE gift from us, the REST from SANTA )

    I get my joy watching him open his presents and the excitement of Santa bringing him all kinds of stuff.
    Some of the things he got ( he actually only wanted ONE THING from Santa and that was Minecraft game )

    Skylanders starter kit + one 3 pack of characters - ( from us )
    Roblox subscription
    Itunes gift card
    5 DS games
    5 or 6 books
    a bunch of board games

    Finding out Santa brought more than one gift!!
