Any one get a *good* Christmas gift from their boss?

I have actually made out like a bandit, I never thought Christmas would be like this at work - I've actually gotten several gifts from clients that come to our practice but I haven't worked on their cats.

My boss gave me a cute Snowman mug and spoon set from Williams-Sonoma (which I know is pricey) and a day at a local spa I would like to get a nice gift for her, somewhere in the $50-$100 range and I am completely stumped - I suck at gift-giving

Not yet, but I got a nice bottle of champagne from our maintenance man at the library I work at--he's the coolest!

Oh, and feel free to whine and moan about how crappy your bonus/gift was (or lack thereof)

I don't work, but my mother got a box of 35 pork chops, and she's a vegetarian.

My boss left for another job a month or so ago, so that was a pretty good gift! Of course the next boss might be just as bad or worse, so maybe it's not so good after all. If they would just make the interim supervisor the permanent supervisor everything would be perfect, but it will never happen because she knows what she's doing and everyone loves her. We can't have that now, can we?

A vintage bottle of wine, which after I regifted to my mother, was informed was quite expensive.

A full week off, paid, not coming out of my vacation time.

I've only been at my place for 6 months so I don't know the whole holiday drill. The leasing company I work for is actually a division of a bank and I know we get a bonus when the new fiscal year starts....what is that in like Feb or March? no clue.

I did get a $20.00 gift card from one of the local grocery stores that the bank has locations in. I have no idea if my boss will give me anything or not though. I dont' really care...I just want my bonus and from what I hear it's more than I make in one 2 week paycheck

Actually, one of my babysitting clients gave me two $50 gift cards--one to Barnes and Noble and one to TJ Maxx (well, I guess his parents did).

I'll find out Thursday, I guess. I kind of hope it's nothing, actually.

i've yet to receive anything from anyone. my bonus from work was a whopping $25, which came out to $22 after taxes since they gave it to us like a paycheck.
