What'd ya get?

December 25th, 2006, 10:45 PM
lol So techno got a camera, but what did everybody else get? :D

I got one of those hand mixer things with a whisk adaptor, a blender adaptor and a little chopper adaptor.:) And I got some... um.. dvds of Creature Comforts (4 dvds total). And an iron (I only had a snowboard one before...:o). And a lot of chocolatey things- I even got chocolate bath salts. :eek:

nothing from my man though... :o But that's ok, because he does enough, I think.:)

December 25th, 2006, 10:52 PM
but wow! those are nice gifts, practical and fun (but the chocolate bath salts i don't understand :eek: ), you can always ask your man for a foot rub! every woman wants a foot rub for christmas :D

you know... as much as xmas presents are fun, i prefer the all-year-round little gifts, the surprises and sweet little things that make a dull moment shine. the things that don't cost anything, or hardly. am i a party-pooper? :o

December 25th, 2006, 10:55 PM
money,chocolate,scented candles,a weird bag with blue stuff that gets hot real fast... :confused:

December 25th, 2006, 10:56 PM
,a weird bag with blue stuff that gets hot real fast...

does it have a photo of the mattinator on it? :D

December 25th, 2006, 11:25 PM
Sac magique?

Yeah, super practical gifts. :) The chocolate salts- you have to see them to believe them... All I need now is a bath tub (installed).

December 25th, 2006, 11:26 PM
does it have a photo of the mattinator on it? :D

I wish ! :rolleyes: It's called "The Incredible Bag" Instructions ; made by enclosing a supercooled hydrated salt solution together with a stainles steel trigger in a sealed flexible plastic bag.Flexing the trigger causes a single molecule of liquid to crystalize.This starts a chian reaction,causing the entire solution to transform from a liquid into a solid.This causes the bag to heat to 50*C-55*C . Once activated, a well insulated incredible bag will stay hot for up to 2 hours.Toreturn the crystals to liquid form,follow the instruction inside.....I'm just wondering where the heck am I suppose to put it ? :rolleyes:

Exactly! lol It's not too bad though. It spreads well. One of those lasts me like 6 months.:shrug:

December 26th, 2006, 07:21 AM

I got some avocado and olive oil body wash, some xmas coffee from starbucks

and a new Cannon sureshot digicam with a really big screen on it and it takes endless movies. :D

December 26th, 2006, 08:24 AM
Let's see, to continue in the practicality format, I got an apple corer/peeler/slicer thingy. It's really neat and will get the kids to eat more apples. And maybe I'll make more apple pies. I also got some money to buy some much needed work clothes. I also collect nativity snowglobes and my mom gets me a musical one every year. She also got me a mother daughter daily desk calendar. And my daughter made me a spice box. Kinda cool actually. Now it's time for the big let down and for the kids to trash the house.

My favorite gift a queen size flannel sheet set from the man's mom but when he seen it he said without hesitation "oh no, I'm not sleeping on that thing" (too hot). I'm thinking though 2 years ago she gave me these supersize one piece 100,000 buttons flannel pj's < -- which I now have a match with my sheets but not very pratical in more ways then one :)

Is it just me, I'm beginning to see a pattern LOL

Were are on our 14th year together :angel:

December 26th, 2006, 12:59 PM
I got the plague.

seriously, the WORST stomach flu I've ever had in my entire life. started prompty at 11pm on xmas eve... and i'm still sick. grrrrrrrrrrrrr. last year we got fleas in the house on xmas, this year I caught my death... gee, can't wait to see what next year brings.

other than that - some seriously great stuff. Nano, a Gauguin print, snow shoes, columbia vest, a new dvd player, kitchen gadgets (smoothie machine, new measuring cups/spoons, silicone pot holders, pyrex, new whisk, meat thermometer), perfume, jewelry, hat/glove/scarf sets, a sweater, lots of good smellies (lotions, candles, aromatherapy), coffee, and lots of lindt truffles (which I can't eat because I'm so sick! grrrr)

one of my fav's was a book my man got me, all dog-friendly places in new england. so now when we take long weekends, we can plan ahead, and always take Tucker w/ us! we know where to go, where to stay, where to eat, and even has emergency vets listed for each state. it's truley a great resource to have.

December 26th, 2006, 01:39 PM
Nice gifts, everyone!! So far, I got lots of money, an mp3 player, a nice sweater, a scarf my grandma did for me, and some funny slippers!!! I'm really happy with my gifts!! I think my man will give me books, like Le Bol et Le Baton (120 contes Zen) :) I'll probably see him tonight! His gift is not ready yet tho, still at the jean coutu centre de la photo :)


December 26th, 2006, 02:55 PM
Jessi -- I'm so sorry you are sick. :sick: It sounds like you got some good stuff though!

Golden -- Gotta love the practical gifts, right? lol Sounds like mil doesn't want you having any fun. hehe We got flannel sheets one year though and they are WONDERFUL! Not nearly as hot as I thought they were. Although our bedroom is downstairs in the finished basement and it gets a little chilly down there.

December 26th, 2006, 03:57 PM
Since we gave each other 3 kids ~ 8 christmas' ago...our christmas' have gone down to the the time it gets to us we run out of money:D . Still fun to see the look on the kid's eyes when they see the presents Santa brought them...and how they try to figure which cookie santa ate first...all while Winnie licking her lips:D to be a kid again:cloud9:

December 26th, 2006, 04:11 PM
Gift cards (Future Shop and Walmart), new glasses (nice big, heavy ones), a kettle, a Dust Buster, a Convection Oven/toaster oven, socks, nightgown, candles, stocking stuffers, hand made wooden napkin holder with a carosel horse design (love carosel horses), muffin tins.

December 26th, 2006, 04:42 PM
Nice gifts ...

I recieved a bath basket, pjs, bathrobe, a couple of mugs and flavoured tea and brandy bean chocolates, will be doing christmas again on Sunday for my son, daughter in law and grandson

December 26th, 2006, 04:54 PM
I got some cash for Christmas and a cool shirt that says "Dancing with Woofs" on it below 6 cartoon dogs (which I thought was really appropriate!) :D

Now, before you go thinking that my relatives must be really uncreative to just give me cash...well...I got other stuff that's going back because it either has to be washed in cold (I only "do" cold), dusted (I don't "do" dusting), or stored away most of the year (I don't have any place to store stuff). That makes me kinda hard to buy for, so usually I just end up with cash. :o Oh, well...helps out on those $900 vet bills! :eek:

jesse, sorry to hear about the plague... I can relate--I got an intestinal bug a couple years ago that lasted from just before Thanksgiving til just after the new year. Bummer man...chicken soup for all my holiday dinners!

December 26th, 2006, 05:00 PM
well lets see.........a lump of coal from the pets(must have been all those baad pics)......i love to we(ME) got a food processor with all sizes of cutters.......a commercial grade blender(for the smoothies)....a cast iron pan and a great set of stainless pots.

December 26th, 2006, 05:36 PM
ok besides the camera from hubby, from my family i got a giant wood cutting board, a set of brushed stainless steel bowls, a private yoga session, a bottle of "Le Dog" room deodoriser (works great!), a bottle of aveeda specialty massage oil, a set of Fruits & Passion bath goodies, some dark chocolate truffles, a bag of african coffee, an electric blanket for the couch, a bottle of Blue Curaçao, a stocking full of fun dollarama stuff, the beanies got a bunch of colored tennis balls...

mind you we're a big family and i have to share most of this stuff with hubby, LOL! in a few days we're off to my dad's and there will be another present or two, even if we absolutely do not want anything but happy memories and no hangovers, eh? :o

December 26th, 2006, 05:43 PM
This is so fun to read what everyone else got. My favorite gift I think is my new slippers from Restoration Hardware. I've had them on almost every minute. Stationery, perfume, a scone mix, Starbucks gift cards, 2 new sweaters, new jammies, a new headband, socks, and a beautiful new serving bowl which I promised my daughter I'd use for yesterday's dinner and just remembered that I didn't.:rolleyes:

December 26th, 2006, 05:57 PM
Nuttin'.....:D ;) :thumbs up

December 26th, 2006, 05:59 PM

December 26th, 2006, 07:23 PM
an electric blanket for the couch,

But don't you have the beanies to keep you warm ? :D

December 26th, 2006, 07:25 PM
no... they're too big for the couch, and besides they hate soft surfaces and prefer the hard cold floor... asking them to come up on the couch is a real drama, they haaate it! LOL :rolleyes: so i got a plug-in blankie :D

December 26th, 2006, 07:35 PM
:offtopic: I don't have that "problem" here. (ok it's not the couch but you get the idea)

December 26th, 2006, 07:44 PM
I got diamond earings :crazy: . For our 14 years together it has been the running gag with hubby and me ....

Hubby - What do you want for your B-Day (Christmas etc)?
Me - Diamonds, jewels, new car, other things we can't afford
Hubby - No really, what do you want
Me - OK then, just the diamonds will do

Hubby is a terrible shopper (I picked out my engagement ring!) and it never entered my mind to ever expect to see them and then I opened up the gift (thought it was gift certicate for spa like normal :o ) and woo-hoo!!!

December 26th, 2006, 07:47 PM
:highfive: awesome, teriM! :crazy:

frenchy, beaucoup de doggies on the bed! lucky you!

December 26th, 2006, 07:59 PM
rainbow... is it a protest against the commercialism of the holidays? :D

Ummm.......partially. ;) :D :o

December 26th, 2006, 08:05 PM
ooo TeriM that's so awesome! Yey HubbyM!!! :highfive:

December 26th, 2006, 08:09 PM

December 26th, 2006, 08:45 PM

your already have all those pretty babies.:D

Yes but I look sooo good with diamonds on :p

December 26th, 2006, 09:03 PM
Nice stuff everyone. For Christmas and my birthday I got an HP photosmart digital, AND and an HP printer, and some Burt's Bees products.

I got a nifty little angel windchime from my friend, she also gave me a tiny teddy bear nik nak.

My kids gave me a huge mess to clean up after everyone was done, as well as a bunch of fun things I had to struggle getting out of the packages.

And I got myself a winning Bingo ticket.

December 27th, 2006, 01:27 PM
My boyfriend bought me a small 2ft x 2ft cupboard for my doggies' sweaters! I thought that was such a thoughtful and sweet gift.

I also got a Canon digital camera, KitchenAid mixer (I'm so excited!), a bunch of sewing and quilting gadgets, DVDs, a dust buster to clean under the bird cage (very much needed since I hate dragging out the huge vacuum cleaner everytime), a quesadilla maker, and some Christmas decorations. And another very thoughtful gift from my boyfriend: a key finder. I'm constantly asking him: "Have you seen my keys?"

My boyfriend decided to rebel against his usual tradition of giving me jewlery for every holiday and said he spent an entire morning coming up with ideas. I thought that was cute.

December 27th, 2006, 02:48 PM
I got diamond earings

ME TOO !!! Plus the kids got me a gold locket to put their pics in ~ beautiful!!
Some gift cards a bathrobe, awesome stocking stuffers, new winter vest and sweater that hubby picked out all by himself(good job hubby!) new pillow.

The best part is I hosted dinner 12 adults and 6 kids and everything turned out and fun was had by all :highfive: to me

Hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday :grouphug:

A tonne of stuff from my parents' trip to Turkey, Burberry Scarf, earmuffs and gloves, a pair of heels, birkenstocks, burton jacket and snowpants, huge lululemon bag, tonnes of books, dale sweater, pjs, kate spade wallet, henkel knives, a car vaccum (for all the dog hair) lacoste sweater, cash, lulu guinness purse, burr grinder, burton "oven" mitts, earings: silver with amethyst and white gold with saphyre, chew toys for layla, new leash and collar, day at the doggy spa... pretty good haul.:shrug:

December 28th, 2006, 09:49 PM
The coolest thing I got was a hand-held GPS that goes into a bracket for on my mountain bike. I guess Mrs. Schwinn is tired of the "But, I was lost in the forest!" excuse. I tried it out on the way to Windsor. I think she may be sick of it. "Look, it shows where we are!" "You know where we are!" "I know, but I can see it on the screen!" "Of course you know where we are, we're driving down the 401!!" "I know! It tells me right here on the screen!!" That was a long trip for her...

Also got a text book for my pilot's license, a manual for my digital SLR, a cordless screwdriver, clothes, and junk food. Oh, and a Sponge Bob monopoly game. For, uh, Gracie...yea, that's it...

December 28th, 2006, 10:07 PM
oo lala! Everybody is so spoiled! :D Puppyluv, I so envy your burton jacket and pants... Mine's gettin' olllllld.:o

December 28th, 2006, 11:55 PM
Hubby and I agreed we already have too much stuff. We're trying to cut down on all the stuff. So we just bought one gift for us together - Bose speakers. But Den-Den and Cork got lots of stuffed toys. Two of which already need a repair.

December 29th, 2006, 11:46 AM
I got a new winter's coat, a new (better) digi cam.
A nice set of pots and pans, a slow cooker.
Some clothes.
A wicker basket set.
A lab figurine, a really nice lab painting.

All good gifts...Santa's a good guy:D
