- a $20 gift card for Old Navy (brother)
- two DVDs (sister)
- and some crafty projects from my aunts, like a little plant in a shell and a tiny jar of pretzel dip

A HUGE hawl!

I gave
- some jam samplers from the Dole plantation (co-workers)
- an office chair (husband)
- a bookcase (husband)
- 20 drinking glasses (parents)

Let's see, I didn't give a whole lot this year, and I kinda feel shitty about it, but whatever, I'm a poor college student.

To my best college buddy I gave the Stella Season 1 DVD's.

To my father I gave an American University sweat-shirt and baseball cap.

To my mother I gave 3 hardcover novels she's been looking forward to picking up.

But, I went completely nuts for my girlfriend. First of all, I bought the two of us Chili Peppers tickets for the Jan 25 show in DC. Then for Christmas I bought her a pair of Peridot earrings (green's her favorite color, and they match her eyes ) But these are going to be a complete surprise when I give them to her during our post-winter break dinner I'm treating her to when we get back. She's gonna flip out over these. I wasn't even planning on getting her anything else, but when I was in the mall last week I just couldn't resist. They're gonna look absolutely gorgeous on her.

I'll reserve my feelings about this thread to merely a smiley:

With that, I wish you all a Merry Christmas.

It was kind of funny...I was so excited to give my sister her PS2 that I hadn't even been thinking that, hey, I'm gonna get gifts! I certainly wasn't expecting all that I got...all I asked for was Seinfeld, and I had jotted down a list of video games I'd like, figuring they could pick one, if they wanted.

The memory box my aunt gave me was many pics I'd never seen...and I can't believe she kept all of my drawings and stuff I did as a kid. It was so heartwarming.
