*Christmas Gift Thread*

Not sure if this is where this thread should be or if someone already started one like this. Just thought we needed a place to share our Christmas stories: What kinds of wonderful gifts you got or gifts you bought for someone that you thought were particularly awesome, any U2 related gifts , any cool Christmas stories

I'll start

My mom went insane this year and ordered me a pair of Bono's new pink star shades from the Armani store in Italy I was so excited about that!
I also got a Blackberry from my grandpa
Got some other odds and ends too like clothes, dvds (two seasons of The Tudors on dvd), and JT Remastered

It was a very light year for gifts in my family. But what I got was awesome:

knit gloves in purple
Target gift cards (I bought a Sonicare toothbrush )
cash
dvd and movie candy
baking book that focuses on decorating
Dinner out with the family at a new restaurant by our favorite lake
Grey fleece zipup hoodie with a white fuzzy lining

Since we all agreed not to spend a lot on each other I bought myself a few things during my shopping trips out...

EMU boots in black
It Might Get Loud
Johnny Depp triple feature movie
Vikings socks

I think I had more fun this year with the lack of gifts than in years where we spoil each other. My mom, sister and I made tons and tons of holiday cookies for Hanukkah and Christmas for various parties we all went to. We also all went to dinner at the big Hanukkah celebration at my grandpa's nursing home. He'll be 95 a week from today He's a grump but I could tell he was really happy we all came for dinner.

It's the true Christmas Spirit! I don't really like how Christmas has become so material..but gifts are welcome at anytime of the year.

I really enjoyed Christmas
I get U2 CD The Unforgettable fire, DVDs The Best of 1990-2000 by U2 and Believe Again Australian Tour 2009 by Delta Goodrem (she is an australian singer and I LOVE her ), book Night Shift by Stephen King, U2 t-shirt and really big U2 poster. Then some shower gels, body lotions and things like that

I love giving a gifts and making people happy. I bought U2 t-shirt for my mum, after-shave lotion for my dad, book Just after Sunset by Stephen King for my friend and other little things for other friends.

I'm looking forward to New Year's Eve. I'm going to be with my parents because I have simply wonderful parents

We had a pretty low key christmas this year and didn't do the present swap with friends this year - kept it to family only . . . but the kids and I went crackers and made cup cakes for as many of our friends as we could (those who we knew we could deliver them to) . . . and its funny how much people loved them . . . we put little stars and the names of each person on the cakes and put them in pretty boxes we found really cheaply at the local $2 shop . . . I felt a tiny bit stupid at first but because it was my daughters idea I really had to run with (who am I to squash initiative in a 13 year old girl!) . . . but all the friends who came home to boxes of cup cakes just loved it . . . yayness!

I guess we do all get a bit too caught up in the commercialism of it all and forget that it really should just be about re-connecting with people after the craziness of another year and taking time to say 'hi' and being kind to each other . . . enough gush fest from me

I did ridiculously well . . . got an iPhone (first ever little ipody device and I am a teeny tiny bit addicted to it already), some gorgeous edun tshirts (a purple one and one with a message from Nelson Mandela on it that reads . . . .'There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the One you are capable of living' . . . gorgeous message that made me cry as I read it . . . I love it and am thinking of having it printed onto a canvas to hang in my loungeroom), some books, an iTunes card, perfume but, as dorky as it sounds my favourite present . . . new tyres for my car

Kids got spoilt . . .Santa bought them a Wiiiiiiiii which, even though we really struggled to afford it . . . it has been the best because it's something we are all playing together . . .hurrahness for family re-bonding time

Hope you all had a beautiful christmas and that 2010 sees the lights shine a little brighter for you all

How true that is. Even though at times family can make you a little crazy there's nothing like everyone getting together and spending the day just having a a good time.
