I was going to ask why, but decided to go along with it.

Mainly a Gibson Les Paul Classic in Fireburst (1 of 400). Got a Shiatsu Message for my chair, and some other things. Bought myself a new cell phone.

I'm not a huge fan of asking for $, but it is useful this year, so I got some of that. Also;

Charger Daytona model to keep me busy in the cold months
Mechanix gloves
new Bedouin Soundclach CD
Hot Fuzz/Superbad/Kentucky Fried Movie DVDs
Camaro Calendar

the fun of watching my 17 yr old open her gifts and looking for my 24 yr old and her husband to come here this weekend for a late Christmas.

I traditionally roast a standing rib roast on Christmas. This year, I served t-bones on Christmas day and will roast the prime rib when everyone is home this weekend. Wife complains the kitchen smells like thyne, rosemary and garlic while the beef is roasting since I use those spices in varying amounts when rubbing down the roast prior to putting it into the oven - this forms a nice crust on the roast.

They have a Carin Terrier named Rugby - they call Rugby my Grand-dog.

Also enjoyed watching my wife's expression on her face when she opened one of her gifts (a personal one I took some time to be selective about exactly what I wanted her to have)

I got an Ipod Nano and a couple gifts here and there, atleast i could spend my first christmas without my grammpa with my gramma so I could be there with her. Plus I got myself a present of enlisting in the Coast Guard tomorrow after I get enough information about it.

Ah yes- but I am interested in what people give as much or more than what they receive. I am also interested in how people accept gifts - these two traits tells us much about a person's character.

Laptop battery, a watch, candy and some other small stuff, and about $300.

It didn't really feel like Christmas though, because we're moving, so everything is everywhere, so we didn't get a Christmas tree until Christmas eve.

My family all pitched in a little (or a lot) extra and got my dad a 1965 Fender VibroChamp amplifier. He said it was the best Christmas gift he ever got. I'm not a huge fan of old fenders, but even I like this one. It's by no means a monster and was a cheaper model back in the day, but being so small means that you can get it to naturally distort without shaking the house.
