Everyone was very happy and appreciative! It was so fun. I know I didn't have to get so many gifts, but I was just so excited. I went from not knowing whether or not I was going to be employed come the holidays to starting a new job where I am actually earning I figured I could afford a celebratory splurge on Christmas gifts.

My dad -- three books (The Murder Artist by John Case, The Cell by Colin Forbes, and Naughts and Crosses by Ian Rankin). We got Void Moonby Michael Connelly for him as well, but had to take it out of the box or it would've cost £36 to post the package rather than £18.

My stepmom -- a Norwich tea towel, a little handmade Santa, and a lotus blossom sented candle

My grandmother -- a birds of Norfolk tea towel, a Norwich mug, and a post box magnet

My mother-in-law -- a little chocolate horse and a Cream CD

My father-in-law -- some cricket game (International Cricket Captain? Something like that) for his computer

My brother-in-law -- a CD (65daysofstatic) and John Peel's biography

My brother-in-law's girlfriend -- a SpongeBob SquarePants DVD

My brother -- an gift certificate

My mom -- a brooch and Goodbye Lenin on DVD

My husband -- White Noise by Don DeLillo, a blue/grey jumper, an Adidas gift set, a portable Pac Man game, misc. stocking stuffers, and £50 towards our holiday later this year
