I bought my brother Borderlands 2 for PC, however as it was just a Steam key I wrote it on a piece of paper and then wrapped it inside a substantially larger box.

One year my granparents gave the family a load of money and they genuinely just gave us a shoe box full of cash. It felt like were we getting money from the Godfather or something.

One year I got so many things from the parents of one of Mom's exes that I could hardly even get into the living room. I was actually sick of unwrapping stuff after an hour. Lots of great stuff, but WHEW. I was pretty well the closest they got to grandkids (neither of their kids had had any biological children OR stepchildren yet and probably weren't going to) so I guess they wanted to spoil the hell out of me.

I was hoping for an Xbox, and that's what I got, except it's a Star Wars Xbox! It even makes R2-D2 sounds when you turn it on and off!

Plus I got an Aflac Duck stuffed animal, and it's adorable.

In terms of giving... I tried making things like stuffed animals, scarves, and hats for friends and family. Note to self: start earlier next year. I'm still working on some of them. o.O

My fiance got me a necklace/earring combo and this promise ring with real diamonds. ;u; He's such a sweetheart, which makes my gifts feel silly.


Other gifts to me include-
A complete set of Black Rock Shooter figurines from my fiance<33


A Sailor Moon wallet from a good friend <3


A hat/scarf/glove set from my boyfriend's grandparents


An Uragaan keychain from my mom! Alongside the Monster Hunter figma I bought my fiance <3 It looks like he's fighting the mini uragaan event boss from Tri! :'D It's perfect.


Gifts TO me, not pictured-
Socks and earrings from my fiance's mom
Hair clips from another friend :'3
Money from my mom and grandma
Money from my fiance's grandma
A framed photo of my fiance's mom and dad
A framed photo of my fiance's grandma and grandpa
A random gift from my fiance's mom that I need to choose xD

I got my fiance a WiiU, and he's very happy about it x3

-A Spice and Wolf shirt for my fiance

-I got a DSTT card for my little brother. He got his first DS last year for Christmas, so this was the perfect gift! If you don't know what it is, you can basically pirate every single DS game on it. O: Shhh don't tell.

This is one of my daughter's many gifts:


She also got lots of make up and a vanity for her and her cousin to do their make up on.

I'm a little late to the party... but it's fun to share about things I got. XD

I mostly just asked for video games and whatnot.

-Kirby's Dream Collection Collector's Edition (Wii)
-Kirby's Return to Dreamland (Wii)
-LoZ: Skyward Sword (Wii)
-Super Paper Mario (Wii)
-Professor Layton and the Curious Village (DS)
-Magician's Quest: Mysterious Times (DS)
-The World Ends With You (DS)
-Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 (DS)
-3DSXL
-Super Mario 3D Land (3DS)
-Clannad the Complete Series
-D.N.Angel volumes 1 + 2
-Hetalia Throw Blanket
-A ton of sweatshirts, because my mom hates the fact that I wear the same jacket almost every day.
-Smashbox eyeshadow, eyeliner, and lip gloss set.
- iHome (so my dad can stop stealing my iPod speakers. xD)

And then anyone outside of my immediate family just got me money or an amazon card, so now I just have to wait for all the things I order to arrive in the mail. It's the gift that keeps on giving. XD

Just watched it again, it's brilliant. Really creepy but in a subtle way, theres lot of stuff about how the cult works that I didn't pick up on the first time around.

Last gifts opened from Mom and her boyfriend! It was a utilitarian Xmas for them- I got a big box with big bottles of my shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, candy, socks, an Ardene giftcard, an owl totebag, several month's worth of pads, and some scratch cards.
