View Full Version : The "wat I got fer Christmas" thrad

12-24-2015, 05:43 AM
I know this is early but I don't care because I probably got all that I'm getting for Christmas (and that's fine!).

I got way too much chocolate and cookies/sweets and extra cash tips from clients, and Starbucks card from another client. I got a 9 pack sampler of microbrews, a gift certificate from a brewery I've never been to and a hefty cash bonus from my boss. I got xenoblade chronicles x from Mirage (the only thing I actually asked for! Not that there's anything wrong with other gifts...) <3

Share your spoils here!

I know what I'm getting because I was there when they were purchased. :lol:

I got both of Ron Swanson's books, Dwight Schrute's book, a few graphic novels, Super Mario Wii U, The Snoopy video game, and some shirts for work. All-in-all, a great Xmas.

Final Fantasy Type-0. Literally just a few moments ago from a friend on Steam.

Warking around the Christmas tree.

It's been a relatively quiet Christmas for me this year due to, well, losing my job right before.

Me and my boyfriend have gotten a PS4 as our joint gift, we got it on Monday. Got money off my parents and just spent it on another controller so far~

Moomins are like happy hippos that talk. They befriend little girls who look and sound like witches.

That witch girl can scar someone for life.

Tickets to day 2, 3 and 4 of the Durban Boxing Day test match. I am so psyched to spend three days knocking back the castle lagers as I watch us get absolutely stuffed by messrs Steyn, Amla and De Villiers.

Lots and lots of shower and bath things! A new Vera wang perfume which is absolutely heavenly, a tablet, some Chewbacca slippers, some money, a Star Wars mug, booooooze, chocolates, make up.... Lots of things! I have been very spoilt indeed! And my wonderful boyfriend got me a tattoo voucher!

A Facebook chat with my little bro, some much needed nap time and some snugglebunts from Smitzy.

12-25-2015, 09:20 PM
Also got one of the Jessica Jones graphic novels which is cool!

12-25-2015, 10:48 PM
MSV Racemaster voucher. Fricken awesome. Google it and then be well-jel!

12-26-2015, 09:01 PM
This year I gave more than I received but I also have more nieces and nephews now. My mom gave me money, my grandmother gave me some bookends and a decorative accent for my bookshelf. She also gave me pajamas as she knows I don't like to wear anything but pajamas. Stylish member 2015 indeed...

Oh and my boyfriend made me a Borderlands figure. All in all it was still a pretty good Christmas. Ate a lot of good food and watched Creed, which was a good film. I may or may not indulge in a gift for myself (PS4). I am not paying for psn and Xbox live and I'm keeping my xbox 360. Xbox live is still superior so sony can smurf right off with that.

12-26-2015, 09:12 PM
I got some money and gift cards. Also got one of the hobbit extended editions, roseanne complete collection, interstellar, and xenoblade chronicles x was an early Christmas gift.

12-26-2015, 11:30 PM
This has been a surprisingly good Christmas! Not that I assess the greatness of my holidays based on the quality of my gifts.

But anyway:

From Mr. Carny:

Persona 4: Dancing All Night
Persona 4: Arena Ultimax
Shin Megami Tensei IV (noticing a trend, here?)

From Others:

A 10 Sprinkles Gelato voucher
Various chocolates
A pair of festive socks
A Ralph Lauren handkerchief (or face towel, depending on use)
a 50 Debenhams voucher
X3 10 Next voucher
An Ikea Voucher
A 40 Amazon Voucher
A care package (of unknown contents, but most likely chocolates)

But the biggest news is that my brother is selling his PS4, and me and Mr. Carny are going to spend 100 each for the PS4, three games (Call of Duty, bleh, Fifa, bleh, and Star Wars: Battlefront, Mr. Carny would like that) and a year of the on-line subscription, which is an absolute steal for 100 each.

12-26-2015, 11:30 PM
You can add Final Fantasy III to the previous list. Thank you Shauna & Dat Matt <3

I'm going to be pretty busy.

12-28-2015, 03:23 PM
I just got money from my family, a shared PS4 with my boyfriend, and an absolute ton of chocolate from my extended family.

I got a Jigglypuff amiibo off my brother along with a zelda purse; my faves. Just ordered FFXIV too~

12-28-2015, 05:30 PM
As well as my car I also got money, chocolate, car stuff, new PJ's, alcohol, a book, a mug and a new hoodie.

12-28-2015, 11:47 PM
A bird-per-day calendar
The skull of an as-yet unidentified bird

12-29-2015, 12:13 AM
Adding to my list: a bottle of sparkling chocolate wine (I'm both appalled and curious), a set of wine glasses with some extras because I break them from my mom, and some boot socks, a gift card and a fucking selfie stick from my aunt :T. That will never see the light if day!

12-29-2015, 04:08 AM
A cool playmat from Escobert, Sorry (game), A very soft and cozy blanket, Pic of me and Bert, a beautiful ornament. We still have one more christmas so I may be getting a few more. But! My greatest gift of all I have to say, being complete with my little family on Christmas day. Last year was very sad for me because I did not have my oldest son with me on Christmas. Now we are all complete and hope to have a growing family soon!

I have 3 kids now, so it hasn't been about me for a long time. However, while hunting for my eldest son's gifts, I found something I had to get, a hashish pipe that belonged to an Ottoman (noble) warlord (17'th century). There isn't another like it. There are plenty of old brass pipes from the time, but this is a "complex" iron pipe. Too cool.

My eldest son made out like a bandit;

Hoyt Ruckus compound bow
18'th century Ottoman Yataghan (sword)
Orcrist (United Cutlery replica from "The Hobit")
Yamaha F335 acoustic guitar (black)
Weights and workout gloves
along with accessories for each and what not.

And when my father heard what I had gotten, he bought my son a 16'th/17'th century Indo-Persian dagger. The kids collection is off to a good start.

MissH bought me a ZX Spectrum 128K! I spent a thoroughly enjoyable morning guiding Ritman Utd to a third-place finish in the league on Matchday 2!


I am also waiting on a second present that we missed delivery for on Christmas Eve. I will reveal what it is once it is in my hands... hopefully later today.

She gave me a card revealing what this second gift is and can I just say... I have the best fiancee ever!

12-30-2015, 07:50 PM
Got a TARDIS bathrobe, a new purse, a coffeemaker for the new place. My mom is giving us a year family pass to our local zoo. A couple gift cards in there too.

12-31-2015, 10:34 AM
Final Christmas present turned up yesterday. MissH has outdone herself!

Hit me up fellow Wii U users!

I agree; Mario Kart 8 AND Splatoon? Jealous! :jess:

12-31-2015, 06:05 PM
MissH is a pretty good gift giver.

Does she have a sister?

12-31-2015, 11:54 PM
My husband got a selfie stick. Yay?
