Apple or other, it doesn't matter.

I got a 32GB Nexus 7, Speck Fitfolio case and screen savers from my Girlfriend last night. I think Jelly Bean is awesome. I really like how you can save maps for offline use. I hope that built-in feature comes to iOS soon. Especially with bandwidth coming at such a premium now.

Socks, Hanes underwear, North Face shirt, and Apple TV. The wife got a white iPhone 5 on Verizon. We bought our parents and iPad 3 that was on clearance at Best Buy. They just went crazy. In fact, my mom cried tears of joy..

Nice, I'm jealous.

I got a duvet (which I like).

I also got a Cabellas sleeping bag which is awesome quality, but I will be exchanging it. The sleeping bag is sewn across at the bottom. I wanted a sleeping bag, but I like to turn them into blankets. I can't handle the trapped mummy feeling of a bag.

That's pretty cool, that your mom was so happy. Now you also get to spend some time with her showing her all the cool things she can do with it. That's nice as well.


Did you cry, because you got socks and undies Smile

In trying to move towards more of the spirit rather than the consumption I don't get much.

Which is intentional and I don't mind.

On the other hand if these posts are real, then I'm really sad.

The wife bought me a Philips Fidelio Airplay Speaker. We have it sitting on the kitchen counter for jamming out while cooking and cleaning. I must admit it sounds pretty good. I think she only paid like $80 dollars for it too.

@ Blazer

Awesome gift for the parental units!

@ Bandit

I don't like those kind of sleeping bags either. I would rather have one that you can unzip for a blanket. It's better for out on the road too. Like for sporting events, concerts and making out. Smile

@ SC

Yeah, people go crazy and end up acting like spoiled brats. We try to limit everything to 2-3 gifts for each person. Even for the kids. We feel that a big pile of presents isn't healthy for them. They also end up having more appreciation for the gifts that way.

I got an iPod with beats headset, my boyfriend gave me this. I love it and this was my best present in last Christmas.


My son got Beats also. Lots of bass, can't find the equalizer on my iPhone (this has been ongoing for years) maybe its in iTunes
But i use my old iPod connected to the community radio at work

I went with the Klipsch image one for the iMac.
