My brother, sister and I chipped in on a GPS for my mom. She's talked about it a few times, and we got her a nice one (complete with lifetime traffic and map updates), so that's fun. I got my sister some handmade art from local artists. Half the gift is the story - part of the proceeds go to supporting arts education in local schools, the rest goes to the artist. My brother wanted kitchen stuff, but is getting Space Noodles, some shot glasses from Vancouver, BC (he collects them) and some other random crap - bucky balls, etc.

Laura is getting the last two Harry Potter DVDs and a handmade glass ornament with our dog, Elliott's, name and the year on them. They'll either be memorials if he dies, or reminders of his most important Christmas if he survives (which is looking more likely now).

My girlfriend wanted to make each other presents this year. She loves cute, and is obsessed by rabbits, so I made her these:

How cute! But then I saw the upside down face behind them and then I thought, oh, are they both dead and stuffed?

Look in front of the right-hand rabbit's paws.

How is that an upside down face? It's just another bunny.

me and housemates and friends just give each other cheap, ridiculous dvd's which is always good times. Highlight was definitely Poltergay.


You got Poltergay cheap? How cheap?

Uh, that picture makes them look huge. They're tiny, about 2 inches high :p


That explains the PM pics you were obsessively sending me earlier this year.

I'm overspending.


Ditto. I went around for the last three months saying "I WONT HAVE MONEY FOR CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR YOU ARE ALL GETTING COAL." ... $300 later... not so much with the coal afterall. And I've tried to keep things cheap! But then I see something that just absolutely cries out as being perfect for someone and I can't resist. But then I did try to stay cheap with my neices and nephew for the first time this year.. and I'm sitting here overly stressing over how much they're going to probably hate their gifts. Ugh kids are so hard to buy for!

Gave Chris the grill last night: 18.5" Weber grill. It is pretty awesome. I gave it to him early since I am headed up to see the family a day early and I told them to get him accessories. And if he got the accessories before the grill... Anyway, I got tasty, tasty steak last night. Very Happy

Since he got a gift, I got to open one too. I now have a new flat wallet, one that pops open and is rigid and flat so it fits perfectly in my purse.



I had been looking for one everywhere and had considered even the super expensive ones but they just weren't quite right. This one is great.

I've been gifted some things I don't really need or want, including candy (which, considering everyone that gave me candy KNEW I recently lost weight and am trying to lose more, is really inconsiderate)

coupled with emotional issues this is the absolute worst Christmas I've ever had
