    Figured in the holiday spirit we could start a christmas gift thread

     

    best gifts I got...my new bulldog was a christmas present from my mom I got in September and FI got me a new laptop...strictly because I'm searching BDW and wedding stuff all the time..lol

     

    best gift I gave...a sentimental ornament to my mother, made her cry

      FI got me an ipod touch (right in time for our wedding next week!) and he was thrilled to receive a new tire for his motorcycle from me.  seriously, he didn't want anything else!

        We got SPOILED by my fmil. She gave me a waffle maker, a ton of scrapbooking stuff, including 6 different scissors for making patterned edges and a nice paper cutter. Hello boarding pass invitation tools! :-) She gave FI a bunch of family items that were his grandfather's from WWII and a PS3! we were very spoiled this year.

         

        FI gave me a pair of little infinity earrings from the same shop where he got my e-ring, they are so beautiful. he's such a sweetie :-) I gave him some Family Guy jammies, a new cast iron skillet that he really wanted and some christmas decorating stuff.

         

        I hope everyone had a happy and peaceful holiday with family and friends and loved ones! We sure did. We're on day 3 of 4 for family parties. I'm starting to get a bit burned out LOL

         

         

        Best gift I gave: I gave my stepdad a wall hanging that shows the evolution of the Bears jersey since the franchise started. He has a man-cave in their new house so he's busy decorating! Even my mom approved it to be hung up :-)

          FI and I bought a 3D TV/ Blu-Ray/ Xbox w/ Kinect Package purchase right before the holidays so we weren't supposed to do gifts for each other, but he surprised me and my Mom with matching Swarovski earrings.  They are beautiful.

           

          Besides that, we got a gift certificate that will allow us to go skiing a couple of times this winter and a snow cone maker (I wanted one for my Chinese New Year party).

           

          Our big gift was getting my parents a new PC which they desperately needed, although I have gotten lectured several times the past two days about us spending too much.  Howard also took some beautiful pics of my parent's dog that we framed for them.  He is getting old and I am not sure that he will make it through the year...

            Wow! You guys got great gifts!

             

            My FI and I haven't given each other gifts in years. Mostly because we do so much for each other throughout the year. However, we did adopt an entire family for Christmas. We provided them (three kids and the mother) with 21 gifts! It was truly a joy to help someone else.

                  My FMIL spoiled me with LOTS of gift cards (which is what I wanted). Now I just need to hold out on using them until all of the spring/summer stuff comes out, I plan on buying a complete new wardrobe for out wedding in July!

                    I spent Christmas at my fiance's house with his family, as I'm living with him for 6 months, 5000 miles away from my own family.

                     

                    I got a beautiful engagement ring as my present :) This is the second year where I've got him as a "present"!! Two years ago my parents flew him over to meet me (we'd been friends online for YEARS) over Christmas, and this year I got him as my fiance :) I feel sorry for him next year, how can he possibly top that! :)

                     

                    I also got a beautiful "key" necklace off his mom, which is because I hold the key to her son's heart :) Then there was lots of chocolates, a couple of DVDs, some perfume, other jewellery and a Christmas decoration off his sister as our first decoration to put on our tree next Christmas :)

                     

                    I had guessed that I was getting my ring for Christmas, as he had teased me that the only way I could equal what he was getting me was if I bought him a "truck or a sniper rifle", so I bought him a toy truck (which really made him laugh, and he did "drive" across the floor!), I made him some "vouchers" like for him to go out shooting without me making a fuss (I'm anti-guns), or to have a game night with his friends where I'll make food for them all, a DVD and a lightsaber chapstick (he's a big Star Wars fan), it's got a handle and lights up, then the blade is the chapstick. The gifts I gave seem pretty lame compared to his, but I'm unable to work and we're trying to save money, so had to be creative with the money I had :)

                     

                    Overall had a lovely Christmas, but missed my family a lot. I got to FaceTime them in the morning to see them open some of their presents :)
