Well.... I usually ask for a Hot Topic gift card so I can go pick out my gifts from there and I'm open to anything, EXCEPT for Hello Kitty and the color pink (pink is an overated color imo. I can deal with it if your a toddler or just a little girl in general, but not for teens and adults xp) But, I do have a Hello Kitty bath robe from one Christmas that is quite soft and cozy ^^

Okay, despite my anti-pink ranting, I've gotten

Christmas Eve

My other family members:

Vinella flavored smelly socks (yes, I said smelly socks)
Green fingernail polish
3 fingernail files, one is a light blue that says "I :heart: " with a nerdy panda on it, the second was a sparkly maroon-ish color, and the last one was dark grey color

Chirstmas Day

5 new combination shirts. All from Rue 21 (Rue 21 has my taste^^)

I almost got either a Hot Topic or Handcock Fabrics gift card or some money so I could choose, but not this year. Oh well.... who cares about the gifts as long as family's around, right? I can live without it (but Hancock Fabrics is having a 1/2 off sale right now, so a Hancocks gift card would be awsome right about now.:eek: )

12-25-2010, 03:01 PM
Hello Kitty shirt 8D I never liked the show or w/e it was, but the merch is cute!
Welcome to Hello Kitty Hell. You'll be drawn in until you have no other choice than to obey. You will fall in love with every Hello Kitty gadget and possibly even scar your body to finally show your undivided lust for this unattainable form of cute. ;)

So far I got a new dress shirt and some black pants. They're too big though. I'm surprised. I thought I would be a 34x34 too.

12-25-2010, 03:22 PM
I got a dress form! :D It is AWESOME! Too bad I can't make anything yet, since I spent all my money on Christmas presents for my family... I guess that means I have to earn some. Ah, well. They seemed to like them.

Also, dark chocolate, socks, fingerless gloves, a hair straightener, and hair stuff, among other things.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

12-25-2010, 03:38 PM
I got a walmart gift card and also a marvel encyclopedia. It was HUGE.

I also got the first marvel appearance of valkyrie and a black-and-white essentials volume of the original green lantern comics (1-17 then it has 20-22).

12-25-2010, 06:05 PM

12-25-2010, 07:37 PM
XD Except they're pink and sparkly.
That doesn't stop some guys. Why will it stop a girl? :3

12-25-2010, 07:44 PM
A thousand bucks.

That's it so far :P

12-25-2010, 07:53 PM
I got a video camera! <3 I wanted one for so long, now I got one!
And one of those Monster High dolls? The vampire one. Mom saw it on...walmart, I believe? and said "I so have to get this for Jo" because it was a vampire, weird looking doll...like mostly all the stuff I have in my room xD (cosplay included on that list).

But that's not the only day we receive gifts this season! So looking forward to Dia de Reyes on January 6 (this is the day that you don't only receive gifts in your house, but everyone in your family and some close friends gives you gifts too! ^_^) so I expect more presents...mostly money but a gift is a gift!

12-25-2010, 07:55 PM
A thousand bucks.

That's it so far :P

12-25-2010, 08:15 PM
I got a gorilla mask (hell yes), a couple of jackets/sweatshirty things because I am perpetually cold, new running shoes, some drafting pencils, etc. For an Xmas gift for myself, I bought some CDs to help keep me sane at work (Amon Amarth, Finntroll, 69 Eyes, Dark Tranquility, Combichrist).

Alternate title: Swag Brag :p

I asked for cash and cash is what I got. 60$ from my father and step mother (I do not live with them) and a check for another 60$ to cash in a week.
Another 60$ from my brother.
10$ from my grandmother
25$ from my boyfriends family (that I felt really crappy taking but he refused to let me give it back)
Between my mother and grandmother I got: New Pjs, brush set that came with its own cloth roll, watercolor paper, Prismacolor watercolor pencils, mixing pallete, Pac-Man tee shirt, knee socks, annndd undies :x
From my sister I got thick watercolor papers,an 18 tube watercolor paint set, and more brushes
My boyfriend got me two DS games and the replacement charger cord, a Totoro plush toy, and his mother got me a Hello Kitty bag with a little purse. Earlier this month he got me Prismacolor pencils from sale at his work but I am counting those too. Annnnd his unconditional affections xD

I was astonished his mother got me anything, she really didn't have to do a thing for me and I felt kind of bad taking anything from her at all :/ somehow people giving me gifts just makes me feel kinda weird like "What did I do to deserve this?" kinda thing. It was just so so nice of her.

Not-sure if this counts, but back in November when I missed a flight, delaying my arrival to Anime USA, I received a voucher for a flight. I used that voucher for a ticket to Ohayocon next month, so that was a gift from the airline to me, or a gift to myself. Either way, I'm happy. :D

12-28-2010, 07:51 PM
PokÚPark, a Nintendo points card, $50, lots of candy, pajamas, and a Star Wars calendar... well, those were the better of the things I got. (I always end up getting a lot of random things that are more something my sister would like, and then whichever parent bought it just bought one for me too... nail polish? not really my kind of thing. and what would I do with scrapbooking stickers?)

Last year's Christmas and birthdaytime were amazing so I can't imagine anything topping it. (I got a PS3, for example.) But I still appreciated everything I got this year, for sure. :)
