What presents did you get? - Page 2

post #31 of 87
I was spoiled! Every year we each make a "wish list" and swap them around between family members. This year all I really wanted was a small donation to the "Emma's Education Fund". I've had those - but my darling man has given me a home-made gift card for free diving in Mexico in January! My dad bought me a sterling silver cat lapel badge and a 2008 calendar. I've had lots of home-made necklaces from my two nieces - one of them even has someone else's name on it bless! Hrmn.... books and little silver cat fridge magnets and some home-made earrings. I love the home-made stuff most, so this year it was just perfect.

My boyfriends parents bought us a mini fridge. We live with them and its hard to share the fridge in the kitchen (especially because his dad eats everything). We didn't even ask for one, but his mom bought one and I love it.

I also got a new blow dryer, a spinning spa brush, pajamas, board game, socks, the Futurama movie and a bunch of candy and stuff in my stocking. Still have to go to my moms house and then my family Christmas later on today.

Oh, man. We had our real Christmas last night... Jess gave me a gorgeous cashmere sweater (that I already managed to get a spot of chocolate on, but luckily, that came out with some cold water); I got some $$ from grandma, and my parents spoiled me rotten... they gave Jess and I some new towels, socks, undies, pajama pants, shower gel, fancy shampoo... and my mom gave me two tubes of the makeup I use since it's expensive (I have super sensitive skin and everything irritates it). Also, slippers and silly little trinkets from Dad (as is tradition), homemade cookies and a gorgeous picture frame (with pictures in it!) from friends... yeah. I was spoiled rotten.

We didn't have a big Christmas this year because money is tight, but we each had 2 gifts to open last night. My BIG one was something I wanted but knew we couldn't afford. A new leather jacket. My old one is 10 years old, full of cat scratches and a size too small now, but I still wear it. Well, the first present I opened was a leather jacket!! . The first thing I said was "are you insane????" He left the pricetag on it on purpose, and it was $200! (I spent maybe $50 on DH). He laughed at my little tirade, then informed me he got it on sale 85% off on black Friday. Well, then I was perfectly happy and so proud of my frugal husband! I also go much needed jeans. My SS at work got me a Waldensbook gift card and, my cousin-in-law got me a oil candle. I LOVE candles, but always get worried with the cats...you know the feeling.

Oh, and MIL got Snuggles (our VERY BIG puppy) a new cage so she is in heaven. The rest will be exchanged tonight.

I got a nice sweater from John's mom this morning. And they gave me a nice quiet house for a few hours! Everyone went to visit John's grandma at the nursing home and I stayed here so I could get some things done. I'm sooooo enjoying the quiet!

My little sister gave me a framed drawing of Rex and Peanut that she created. Peanut was a lop rabbit, my heart bunny, and she died this past September. Rex is her bunny buddy who misses her dearly. The drawing is absolutely beautiful, she nearly made me cry.

- Animal, Vegetable, Miracle
- a box to hold sewing supplies, a pair of professional quality scissors, and a gift card to Joann's Fabrics
- a Moonbeam Alarm Clock
- a receipt for a pre-ordered copy of the complete Orthodox Study Bible
- an Aroma Joe's gift card
- Burt's Bees 'Hand Repair Kit' (it smells soooo good!)

plus cool things in my stocking like incense, car air freshener, 'Finding Nemo' on DVD, and pencils (okay, so there's this one type of mechanical pencil that I really love)

It was a pretty great Christmas

post #51 of 87
We didn't really do presents this year in our house.

But I got a gold diamond ring with rubies and little diamonds on the side from my grandma. She had promised me that ring when I was younger...but said I had to wait til I was old enough to get it. I guess at 22 I am finally old enough lol. Thats the best gift I have ever gotten.

Cordless drills rock! Mom said today that I'm the easiest out of the three "kids" to buy for. I'm rather practical when it comes to mom asking me what I want for Christmas. It's always everyday items that I can use around the apartment like bath towels, sheets, etc.

On the other hand I'm still waiting for someone to give me the one ring to rule them all! Bwahahahahaha!

Now that I'm home from the Christmas festivities and I've gotten all my gifts.....

First off, my parents bought me a computer that they gave me back in August for school and then I also got from them a sweatshirt with a kitty saying on it and 2 nice sweaters, some socks, a Lane Bryant gift card, a gift card to the grocery store, a starbucks gift card (notice a theme here?? It gets better!) a new comforter set, some lotions and sprays, and a couple bowls. From my sister I got a Target card and a grocery store card, from my Aunt and Uncle I got a Bath and Body works card, a Pet Supplies Plus card, a Kohl's card, a JcPenny card and one of those cat-a-day desk calenders and a couple shower gels. I got another Starbucks card from my cousin too. Someone's going shopping tomorrow!!!!!

I got 2 cookbooks.. lotions and $25. I haven't gotten my presents from my other relatives yet. I will get those Saturday at our big family gathering in Winston-Salem, NC.
post #58 of 87
Ok my turn.. hmm mmm hmmm

I got....

A pair of diamond earrings

A portable DVD player w/case 2 headsets, car jack, battery pack

Pirates of the Carribean AT World's End DVD

An electric wax/scent warmer and some of the bars of wax that it uses (Sandalwood Cranberry)

I think that's it. But I'm happy!

One more thing! My new son in law made me a little cart on wheels to put my compact apartment size clothes washer on. So now I don't have to pick it up and carry it to the sink everytime I want to use it! It's awesome!
post #59 of 87
My grandma sent me some stollen. (It's German Christmas bread, kind of like fruitcake but in a yeast bread. Very good. You've probably seen it sold at Aldi's, if you live in the US.) She also sent me a couple of shirts, which is good because I needed some more professional stuff to wear.

And the lady who runs the cat shelter I volunteer at gave me a $25 Kroger's gift card. I am totally going to raid the Diet Mountain Dew display.

A GPS TomTom
Video DVD Recorder
$100 from the SO's family
A Weed Wacker
