Christmas presents....

Recommended Posts

I like giving better than receiving, so that's going to be my list. :)

 

- for FBIL: I gave the cigar freak a really cool humidor

- for FMIL & my folks: Framed photo of me, Frank and Audrey

- for Frank: a Citizen Eco-Drive with channel diamonds around the outside (and other small stuff)

- for Audrey: Ipod nano (and other stuff)

- for my sister & BIL: MPIX book I made from their trip to Alaska this year for their 25th anniversary

 

Favorite that I received: the Kitchen Aid "pro" mixer with accessories from Frank. :)

We'd both been wanting the mixer. He was dying to give it to me early too, because I spent 4 days baking the desserts for his family's Christmas Eve celebration. The entire time, I kept cussing out the crappy little handheld mixer and hoping it wouldn't die because the motor in it kept "screaming"...

LOL - honestly I've always been a horrible baker but I baked like the blazes the other day with that mixer! All of my Christmas baking turned out amazing this year - it has to be because of the mixer!

I LOVE to give gifts too! I dont even care to open mine - I just like watching everyone else!

I'll do the same:

My FI: a TomTom, a Bears jersey, some other clothes, and a stocking full of razors, candy, etc

My Daughter: a cabbage patch doll, clothes, bilingual books (Spanish/English), hair accessories, a leap pad, puzzles, etc

Mom: a digital camera - she was still using film & with a grandchild this is much better

Dad: a digital frame

Lots of other folks too......

My favorite gift: the DVD/VCR combo to replace the DYING DVD player in our bedroom and get rid of the 2 units to only have one. OR the 20 inch TV with built in DVD player for my daughter's room (from my mom) so that she can watch "her movies" when we want to watch stuff like Grey's or other "grown up TV" as she calls it!smile159.gif

I won't be doing Christmas with my family until the 29th. I'm so homesick tonight! This is my first Christmas away from home. I can't even begin to get into the Christmas spirit. But my teeth feel amazing :)
We got a sonicare toothbrush too. Haven't used it yet though. I also got a giftcard to my favorite store Kirklands. Can't wait to use that.

Our christmas was on the light side because we are trying to pay off some debt and paying some unexpected bills that popped up.

 

But I got:

 

A ton of clothes from DH, MIL, Friend & sister

 

Gift cards (one to lowes so now we can do our crown molding)

 

Frames (I plan on doing a foster dog wall in my loft so I got a picture frame for each fotster dog we have helped so far)

 

Bathroom vanity cabinet (love it..)

 

The most adorable coach keychain of a Boston Terrier..

 

Chonies (from DH and he hates shopping at VS)

 

And I got a new car.. :-) I ended up trading in my car 3 months earlier then expected. I ended up getting a fully loaded Jetta. The best part, I'm saving over $150.00 a month on my car payment so that extra money is going to be put towards bills.. Which I'm so happy about.

 

Oh and our boys (by boys I mean our two dogs & Cat) got a jersey each, Mijo's was a "Michigan State", Chulo's was a "Michigan" and Morris was got a Collar of "Michigan".. They are adorable and we will dress then up during every game.. :-)

Tammy-I like your pets gifts! Dirk got some denta-bones that he loves and some doggy breathe mints.....I thought they were a good idea for his stinky breathe, but he doesn't like them =)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
