Default What'd you get & give for Christmas/Hanukkah/Festivus/Late December

Thus far I received a USMC watch, Maximum Boost (on its way), and cash for the vast majority of a MS3X so I can be cool like Brain.
Thus far I gave a 2yr Popular Photography subscription & DVD to my dad, I'm painting my moms kitchen (her request) and I'm getting a KA-BAR for my brother once he gets out of boot camp.

What about y'all?

Gave:

A fancy wooden swingset/clubhouse for my niece, an electric wok for my sister who loves to cook, and a boxed set of the post-THX-remastering, pre-special-edition-bullshit release of the original Star Wars trilogy on Laserdisc (1995 pressing, aka the "Faces" collection) for my brother-in-law the movie purist, as well as a Laserdisc player to play them on.

Received:

A couple of nice silk shirts, a wooden sign to hang on the wall which says "There's no place like N33 6' 28.0182" W117 16' 45.0654"" and a cookie-cutter shaped like the Lamp from A Christmas Story.

My gf's sister gave her one of these as well. Which means I'll get to try that **** too!

This year I gave my nieces and nephews a combination of gift cards, toys, workout equipment and some choice Justice items for my youngest niece.

Between my bros and sister-in-laws I gave gift cards, a TENS unit, a guitar pick punch, and a book.

Got my mom a candelabra and my dad some old western DVDs and specialty condiments.

Gave the gf a diamond necklace, a ton of her favorite k-cups, XM radio w/1yr subscription, Steve Jobs book, some nick nacks and little gifts.

Between everyone family wise, her and myself (yes I got myself some things I've been wanting this year ) I got a GoPro hero, logitech wireless illuminated keyboard, new bubbler, giant 30" clock, productivity calender, box of my favorite k-cups, hammock chair, Canon printer, new incense, earmuff headphones, and a new paper shredder.

It was an expensive, but a good Christmas. I'm just happy I didnt spend a dime on that ******* miata this year. Looks like I was able to break that habit as well. lol
