What did you get or what are you getting for Christmas?

I know we are mostly old fucks, but I still love Christmas and love getting useless presents. So far I have received 2 things, jack and squat.

I did get my Christmas bonus from work, but it was less than expected.

What did you get your wife, girlfriend, kids, partner, etc.

I got my wife a bag full of crap from Victoria's Secret (lotions and body spray) a vaccuum cleaner (she asked for it) and some expensive ass purse she wanted. I got my oldest an XBOX 360 and a bunch of games (kinda for me too) and a bunch of other shit. I got my youngest one of those electric power wheels ride-on toys. It is a big ass 4-wheeler. He also got a bunch of Thomas the Train crap.

I am about to leave to my first family gathering for Christmas. It is with the Aunt and Uncle I see rarely. I will let you guys know what color the shitty shirt I get is.

I've pretty much gotten everything at this point.  My parents bought me a new cell phone with all the bells and whistles and some other stuff that I can't open yet, I have about 6 bottles of wine and Ketle One from co-workers that I dragged home yesterday, my grandparents wrote me a check (always appreciated), my other grandparents gave me a Banana Republic gift card, I got an Amazon gift card from a friend.  I'm just not sure what my girlfriend is getting me yet.  And yes, the Christmas bonus from work was nothing to write home about for me either.

As far as what I bought, my parents asked for a digital picture frame so I bought that even though I had never even heard about it before.  Seems like a waste of money to me.  I got myself a Roberto Bianci watch last year and my girlfriend has been raving about it ever since, so I bought her one too plus earings and I'll take her out to dinner at Peter Luger's (she'll appreciate the fact that it's not Italian for once) and to see Wicked on Broadway.  I bought my teenage cousin an Ed Hardy shirt.  And Thursday night I hosted the office Christmas party at our favorite bar.  We're having the "official" one at a club in January (don't ask), but I paid for this one on my own dime as a thank you to my staff.  Nothing too fancy, just a dive bar that I picked up the tab for but that shit adds up when 25 people show up.   I didn't help by screaming out "Shots!" every 30 seconds.

We bought one for my mother-in-law.  She loved it.  It's like displaying your photo album without all the work.

UPDATE:

Received my first gift of the season. My Aunt Linda gave me a card with a wrinkled ass 10 dollar bill in it.  Freakin' Sweet.

I actually fixed my CD changer in my car as my gift to myself.  Best present I've gotten in a long time.

Bought the wife a new computer (refurbed) from Dell.  Better pricing and also go through more stringent testing before they're shipped.
