    Re: Christmas gifts

    2 Christmas coffee mugs from my husband's aunt. We don't drink coffee and have too many mugs. I gave about 10 to Goodwill last year too (including 2 Christmas ones they gave us 2 years ago- and don't worry, they've never been to our house, so they don't know we don't have them! ;)


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    The wife and I both made out pretty well this year. She got a fondue pot and a bunch of stuff to hang on our walls, and I got plenty of ISU gear and enough cash and gift cards to get a Blu-Ray player.

    Re: Christmas gifts

    I might have given one. I can't complain about my gifts, not a bad one and got a really sweet Under Armour I-State polo. Got my brother and uncle one of these as a gag gift:

    Re: Christmas gifts

    I received a jar of spicy hot pickles from my sister!

    As an aside, this year as a family, we decided to share small handmade or homemade gifts, and donated to a charity.

    Re: Christmas gifts

    Nothing too bad here. Cash, gift cards, yak tracks (amazing how well they work)
    I did get a plug in battery charger that I hopefully will never have to use.
    Got some tickets to some shows at the civic center that I'm pretty excited about.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Christmas gifts

    I got a copy of MC Hammer's "2 legit 2 quit" video on VHS.

    It was a gag gift, though.
