I received and gifted Cash.

Easy. It's been a family tradition for a little while now. The only person that gets an actual gift is my mom. This year it was a Coach bag, plane ticket + Spending money, and a few hundred dollars for Boxing day.

pair or runners , fleece throw, scarf.

the older you get you realize actual presents mean nothing and that spending time is everything. also, that the holidays are very chaotic and everyone needs to hit the slow-mo button.

Gave my dad some long underwear, and my mom some socks for skiing. My brother and I then pitched in for Surface tablet for them to replace the 5 year old POS HP laptop they've been using. For friends, got a hockey stick, hockey gloves, lanyard, air fresheners for car, and gave an alcohol starting kit for a secret santa with our group of friends. LOL. Oh, and got the brother new headphones to replace his old and breaking ones,

Got cash, boxers, Microsoft munnies, Assassin's creed 4, xbox live for a year, another lanyard to add to my stupid collection, some shirts, an RC car, and another pair of Oakley glasses for another stupid collection lol.

Not exactly a christmas gift, but a week ago I came back from a 21 day mediterranean cruise. I think the experiences and insight about the other side of the world is as precious as any gift we can get.

From that video it's being sold by thinkgeek.com

I almost ordered one from there but $47 USD shipped from the states with 2-3 weeks delivery (cheapest delivery option) was a turn off.

Then I found the manufacturer from the comments in that video for $42.09 CDN shipped from Calgary estimated delivery Jan 2 (cheapest delivery option).

All the presents I bought were practical ones

Electric pencil sharpener for the kids, Contigo traveler mugs, and a top notch Panasonic water boiler.

It may sound boring but I got the reaction I was seeking simply by buying exactly what they needed (without any hints btw). What's more important is that I am loved and appreciated by those I spent xmas with

Good job! despite the problem of heartless human beings giving pets away as gifts, I always think the holidays is a great time to introduce a pet to the family, since most people have a few days off to socialize with the new animal and tons of visitors!

One of the main reasons why I got him, got to spend the last 4 days with him. Today is his first day at home with no one(hopefully he doesn't cause any problems :P), gonna spend the next few months training, but the dog is pretty well trained already.
