    Merry Christmas ladies and gents.

    Got a Keurig, sound bar for my TV, speaker set for my PC, couple PS4/NSW games, stationary bike, some sweet mario pjs and a pair of sheepskin slippers I totally didn't know I needed until I put them on.

    Gave a bedding set, steam mop, microwave, deep fryer, and about $300 cash to family.

    Still hoping for that white Christmas we never seem to get anymore. Last one was 2012 or something.

    Merry Christmas guys!

    Wasn't a huge exchange this year for my wife and I since I re-shingled the roof this summer, so that was our gift lol. I did give her a couple books and a Swell water bottle, and she gave me a gift certificate for a tattoo. Gave out a few gifts for each of my best friend's kids, got a sweet Zelda hoodie from them. Gave my sister and brother-in-law a Cineplex card, still waiting for what they gave us. Gave my wife's brother and fiancee a couple mugs and a Keg gift card, getting their gift later today. We don't exchange with our parents though, going over for food and booze is good enough for us!

    Christmas as an adult in my family is just people exchanging cash and eating food. Nobody ever gives gifts anymore. I don't mind.

    We aren’t celebrating Christmas until New Year’s Day due to too much family scheduling. Hubby and I agreed no actual gifts for each other as we have too much “stuff” and did Disneyland for Thanksgiving/his birthday. I’m actually very happy about that decision.
    Even for family we kept to a fair budget so I’m very happy about that.

    Giving to family : Oversized wine glass , insulated wine bag/purse , Decoder cocktail glasses with coasters ( basically glasses reveal hidden messages on coasters) , brownie/sugar cookie skillet kits , mini cocktail shaker gift sets, Bath and body works soaps, few blu rays for various people, Various chocolate/treat gift baskets and maybe a few other small things I’ll include or bake homemade fudge and cookies to include.

    Merry Christmas BG.

    Gave my first cousin an autographed poster of Sailor Moon signed by almost all the VAs and Persona 5, my older cousin and her husband each $50 Amazon gift cards, my Dad a complete collectors edition of The Godfather, and my mom a new pair of sneakers (which I have to promptly return b/c I bought the wrong size like an idiot.) and my cousin's kid Watch Dogs 2.

    Got $200 cash, a $50 Best Buy gift card, a Jets scarf (to share in my pain and misery) and the first 2 manga volumes of Boruto.

    My family usually don't do big Cristmas stuff, but it was pretty nice.
