Favorite Holiday Gifts: What Trims Your Tree?

Here's a thread to list some of your favorite holiday-tide presents.

Some of my favorites include:

--diamond earrings (from my excellent boyfriend, who will soon be richly rewarded)
--2 pairs of pink fleece Old Navy sweatpants (one each from my mother and stepmother)
--Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel perfume (!) (from Mom)
--My So-Called Life DVD box set (from dad and stepmother)
--fuzzy pink bedroom slippers (from dad and stepmother; when worn with pink fleece pants, I look like half of "the big pink nightmare" part of A Christmas Story)
--(of course!) the Slane DVD, from my friend Jeannie at work
--some great books (Immortality by Milan Kundera, Socrates and Jesus by Peter Kreeft, Collected Stories by Gabriel Garcia Marquez) from my friend Jonathan, my friend BJ, and boyfriend respectively)

But I was VERY richly blessed this Christmas indeed.

Dish, dish!

My family had no idea what to get me. There was much complaining.

My favorites are probably the assortment of t-shirts I got...which include an 80's E.T. iron on (which looks remarkably like one I had as a kid), a ROTK Aragorn one, a Nightmare Before Christmas Zero one, and an Original Six hockey shirt.

As for extended family--I was extremely pleased to get a $25 gift certificate for the Tattered Cover from my uncle and aunt. The rest didn't send anything, as usual.
