Surprised this isn't a topic yet.


Anyone get or give anything interesting?


We're all adults in my family so we don't really bother with exchanging gifts. We're all old enough to buy ourselves whatever we want or need. We just have a great meal and drink a lot  :rofl:



Also, did anyone get a really crappy present? Socks, jocks, scented candles, pregnancy test? lol

I got : A Philips shaver, socks and some money

I bought: books for my parents, small 2.1 speakers. And a few cards for my family.


I also bought a few games on the steam sale, so about $40 worth, and a Coolermaster Ceres 400 mic. Its a chilled xmas for me.

I have no idea at the moment. My Christmas won't be until sometime on the weekend when I can finally get round to seeing the family. Also, I didn't ask for anything in particular so I don't know what to expect. However, I got jewellery for everyone.

I got: Small dash cam for my car. Christmas coffee, turkish delights and shortbread from Harrods.

I gave: Digital camera (nothing too expensive, just a compact), and some bakeware.

I've bought myself a couple of games in the sale too. I'm also going to go out and treat myself to a pair of wireless headphones for my AV rack, since mine are starting to die (battery lasts about 20 minutes).

Socks, T-Shirt, Jumper and a new coffee mug sent over from the UK from mum (I live in The Netherlands) :p


I don't do anything usually, so the package was a nice surprise :)

One of my inlaws got me this coffee maker (this thing is awesome, zero waiting as the water is always hot and ready), which prompted me to make a New Year's resolution of not picking on the inlaws anymore...


Mostly focused on my daughter for gifts, 3DS plus games, a bunch of Monster High stuff, etc.. she should be in sensory overload until sometime late Spring, at least.

I got: Accessories for my Razer Blade 14 (Hammerhead pro, Kabuto Mobile Mousepad, Orochi 2013 mouse and Sabertooth controller) as well as a crapload of Steam games.

I gave: Assorted drinks, a few gadgets, cash towards those who preferred buying their own stuff and games to the gamer-kin. :p

I got a Nokia 1520, Logitech 602, and some Noctua NF-S12 ULN silent fans for my PC. My PC is so quite I can't even here it. The only thing I can here are the hard drives. I got my wife some jewelry, my son a few toys and my father in law a 42" LED TV.
