Nuttin! I got nuttin for Christmas, 'cause I've been a bad boy!

Well, not true. But we just don't buy each other gifts for Christmas. We learned a long time ago we're really bad about keeping secrets, so if we find something we think the other will like, we just buy it and give it to them whenever.

Me too!

Actually, since there are no kids (or even people under 30) in my immediate family and we're all the type who see something we want and go right out and buy it, it's really tough to buy anything the other person really wants. Usually, what we do get for each other tends to be gimmicky stuff that gets sold at the next garage sale. This year we all agreed we would take the gift money we would have spent and donate it to some charities instead.

My aunt gave me a really nice pottery barn jewelry box. It's huge, and I love it!

They weren't surprises, as I do most of our Xmas shopping (meaning: his and mine!) online--I set a $ amount to spend; he just reimburses me my share of the $. I even offer my special "complimentary gift-wrapping services" . I know it's not romantic, but when DH surprised me with some jewelry way back, that I couldn't wear, due to a metal alergy (and it was expensive stuff), I had to ask him to return it--so we decided the new way is the way to go with gifts. I really don't mind.

I got:

A great book on 18th C. clothing, Costume close-up

6 yds. of linen to make an 18thC. dress

2 yds. of white cotton organdy for a couple of 18th C. caps (women always wore a sort of Betsey Ross-type cap, even uder their hats)

Lots of different colors of silk ribbon, to tie my 18th c. shoes, and for the caps

A plush, pink robe (to wear after my bath; I will keep it in my bathroom)

A set of 2 teacups & saucers, with a tea -ball spoon, candy and cookies in a pretty box

A gorgeuous sterling/turquoise/pearl/amber necklace & earrings set

A strand of 8mm freshwater pearls and matching stud earrings (the necklace will have a black silk ribbon tie-closure--this is for my good 18th C. dress, which I have not made yet! This is how they clasped necklaces then.)

A double-strand garnet, pearl, gold bead necklace, which hasn't arrived yet--the ebay seller sent me the wrong one (she's gifting it to me), and had already sent the real one

A Tibetan green jade bangle, with silver dragon placques around the bangle

A pretty set of a sterling chain, with a pendant of a large pearl, surrounded by rubies; pearl stud earrings

He's a lucky guy--I got most of the gifts on ebay, with free shipping, and 40% off!

No gems??? Drat! When I saw your name, and post, I thought I'd hear about some cool bling! (Can you tell from my gifts that I love jewelry? Was I being too subtle?)

Seriously, your gifts sound very nice, indeed! I love soft, warm lougewear and robes (and so do the cats, who jump on them as soon as I lay the clothes down somewhere).

Santa was good to me

I got 3 new Webkinz (yes, I am 31yrs old), a nice lingerie overcoat and a heavy warm bathrobe for getting in and out of the hottub. I am very happy with my pressies

I got my hubby, a nice warm bathrobe too (we just got the hottub this year), a collectors dragon from the Hamilton Collection, and another dragon statue. He and I both love "fantasy". Him more the dragons, me more the fairies, unicorns, pegasus.

I can't wait to try out my robe Hubby will have to wait, I didn't understand the sizing right, and you could fit 2-3 people in the robe So it will be returned and I've already ordered another in a different size.

My daughter is quite thrilled with her gifts. She got some Bratz, Little Pet Shop stuff, CD player, game for her DS, pj's, a puzzle, CD and 3 Webkinz too.

The best present tho, I'm in a good mood Normally I'm not.... My pain level is quite high today and the meds aren't cutting it.... but this Christmas has been the best I've had in a while. So that is the greatest gift, not only to myself, but my family as well.

I got a maternity sweater and coat from DH, Cinderella, classic Christmas movie set, underwear & new wedding band(old one is tight). Mom got me about 20 pairs of socks, two maternity sweaters, pedicure kit and make-up kit.

My siblings and I don't exchange gifts anymore. We are good to each other all 365 days of the year. Tho' my brother did offer to get me a really good scanner... it hasn't showed up yet and I am not going to push. Same goes for Mom... really, there is nothing I can GET for her so I DO for her... This morning I made a special brekkie - scrambled eggs and these yummy smoked chicken sausages, bagels and cream cheese.. and I chased her out of the kitchie so I could do the dishes.

I got my boyfriend a funny coffee mug (Real Men Like Cats!), the Martin Scorcese DVD doc on the Rolling Stones and mom and I went in on a beautiful urn and display box for his RB cat's ashes.

He got me an external hard drive for my computer - Half a TB for a hundred bucks! (I went with him to pick)... and I WILL be getting a cherry amber pendant. I can't decide which one I like best... I have like 20 different designs bookmarked! Sheesh! And a silver omega to wear it on. (maybe I will have you guys help me decide!)

One of my dear girlfriends got me a great purse - I like a cross-body style - at Macy's. It's absolutely perfect. I had said "no gifts" but of course, Christina wasn't listening to me!

We didn't buy gifts this year. We decided to go save a cats life from the shelter on Christmas eve!!

She is home now and my house has been hissy. She is a little sweetheart. She came to us with the name of Ace but she doesn't know her name. I think the shelter named her. What my new little cat needs is a name for Christmas!!!

My sisters has the gifts from my brother and girlfriend but she has to go to work as soon as gets back.
She went to the bay area to get them yesterday.
My other 2 sisters have gifts for me to and I have theirs.

SS presents of course! Lots of CD's from DH, new PJ's, a couple of jigsaw puzzles (I'm addicted to them) and a cool purple sweater.

And the big score: a very cool beaded necklace with a large cat head for the primary bead. I'll post a picture of it later. I'm wearing it right now over to the neighbors for dinner.

But I hear that the "big" present from DH got delayed at the Portland airport yesterday. We were expecting a UPS delivery and they sent us an e-mail late in the day that it wasn't coming until Friday. Did you hear about the accident at that airport yesterday? The fumes from de-icing a plane got into that plane and they had to hospitalize a lot of people. I watched it on the news yesterday, never realizing that that plane would cause our Christmas to be delayed.
