So, what'd you get?

I got a small speaker set for my laptop, noise canceling headphones, Visa Gift Cards, socks, underwear, AAA car coverage, an electric razor set, a bedside buddy for my dorm, and a Leinenkugel variety 12-pack. :party:

A very practical Christmas, save the book.

Wifebeaters, briefs that I'll never wear, a South Pole hoodie that I'll never wear, an MP5 player I'll never use, some kind of Patrick Dempsey cologne that I probably won't use, a sleep set, some sweet metal pincher ear ring things, and a 32 gig iPod Touch..so far. Still have to go to the girlfriend's and both sets of grandparent's. Thinking about keeping the The Red Chord shirt I bought for my cousin for myself...

Nothing, really.

I went about half/half on my Zune with my Dad as his present to me, my mom deducted money off what I owe her for the month, and I'll be receiving money from all the rest of my relatives whom I will see tonight - the money will go towards buying my ProgPower ticket. Yep, I'm gonna do it.

Frankly I'm astounded by how much shit people get, period. My actual immediate living-with family (Me, my mom, my sister) haven't really gotten gifts or had "proper" Christmas in several years, 2004 was probably the last year we really had gift exchange. We just can't afford it.
I barely see my mom's side of the family, and my dad's family is fairly practical, each set of people (aunt/uncle, grandparents, etc) just gives me a card with $20 or something. Aside from my dad, who still tries to buy back my love, the sum of all my cash and value of gifts is at or usually lower than $200.

At my dad's parent's house in Tulsa. Got a $50 check and an OU Santa hat as a Dirty Santa gift..even though the only football I'm ever interested in is the Super Bowl. Oh well. About to head back home to Bartlesville and get the stuff my girlfriend and her family got me.

Oh...I made my other grandma cry for the second year in a row...I fucking rock at picking gifts.

THIS.

i was actually really suprised when i got the 2 things i got last night. in my family when you're ages 1-12, everyone in the family gets you a shitload of presents, but once you hit 13 or 14, you get maybe some money or nothing at all. the only people i received gifts from were from my aunt and brother but i'm still content with what i got.

ravenheart
12-25-2009, 03:38 PM
the sum of all my cash and value of gifts is at or usually lower than $200.

Mine is 150, so about $240. And that's with my parents trying to make up the shortfall from when my Nan died. They still haven't let that go.

But it's all OK, because your sister is hot ;)

Wait... that probably doesn't help you much... ;)

Got 20 bucks from my dad...

Treated myself to a few t-shirts:
Iron Maiden
Meshuggah
3 Inches of Blood

In the past years we celebrated holidays but these year literally nothing. Basically my dad just offered to buy one of the shirts.

Better than nothing, though.

DethMaiden
12-25-2009, 04:18 PM
I guess the unspoken idea is that you're giving a lot but you're breaking even by receiving a lot too, at least for a lot of people. I always come out grossly ahead by not giving anyone anything. :D

SirLardsAlot
12-25-2009, 04:32 PM
Still have yet to see my dad or any of my grandparents. But from mom, brother, and girlfriend:

Concert/sport ticket book (like a photo album for tickets)
"Dr. Suess and Co. Go to War" by Andre Schiffrin
Guitar Hero: Van Halen
Iron Maiden "Live After Death" t-shirt
Iron Maiden "Piece of Mind" bobble head
The Simpsons Scene It


Those are the major/sweet gifts. There were some other smaller just-for-something-to-open gifts like boxers and candy and such.

ravenheart
12-25-2009, 05:12 PM
The concept of not getting people presents is strange to me. We don't spend anywhere near as much as a lot of people of gifts, but we at least spend 20/30 per person on stuff.

ChildrenofSodom
12-25-2009, 05:22 PM
Being a college kid is pretty good excuse for getting lots of stuff, giving nothing.

In terms of giving vs. receiving, I came out even this year, at least in terms of monetary value. But that's not the important thing, obviously.

Just got home, got a Gillette kit with a razor, body wash, shampoo, and deodorant. Got a Spiderman glass from the girlfriend, and got two stupid ass shirts that aren't even my size from my girlfriend's step mom, as usual.

Apparently her dad is getting me something sweet after the first of the year and so is she.
