at my house, I am the Santa

one of the girls showed me how she could take an entire ball park frank in her mouth, in a suggestive manner

@DrBill And did that girl get the best Christmas gift?

Creepy as hell DrBill. But unsurprising.

Here, my wife told me she would NOT have a good Christmas if she didn’t get the boots she wanted.
Her gift to me was being happy with the boots.

I showed my benefactor a side of me that you Flutherites rarely see; warm, charming, witty without sarcasm, and eventually naked. It really didn’t take any convincing after that.

The wife upgraded my phone from a battle-scarred Droid X to a new Droid Razr HD, one o their flagship models :)

My husband does not give gifts on holidays, so I buy my own. This year we are really tight, because of the number of unemployed family members we are helping out. His company gave him a modest year end bonus, and a gift card to Target for $50.

I went to Target and bought him the slippers he really needed, and I saw some boots that I have been wanting, so I bought them and wrapped them up in the most beautiful paper I have. Everyone else said Oooooooo when I brought out the box. I use the same paper every year since I found it. It’s a metallic sort of paper that silvery sort of like this.

I bet you were expecting a creative one from me? I have to say, this expensive gift lark is just that. People need to get their priorities right. Give me love and the little family I have left and no gift on earth can replace that. I wish one could give peace, love inspiration, a future, hope and self worth as a gift. I would be wrapping those like crazy.

I did not want an expensive gift. In fact, we cut back on our plans to get each other gifts in favor of getting gifts for our families and paying bills.

Kinda like @Seek_Kolinahr, except I ordered it on Hubby’s credit card. (with his permission, of course.)

@jerv You without sarcasm, that must’ve been painful. LOL I’m just kidding with you. I’m glad it seems like you had a good Christmas.

Self_Consuming_Cannibal's avatar

@DrBill I don’t blame you. Good call.

Self_Consuming_Cannibal's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr Ahh how sad! Well I guess you at least got the right size and color huh?

We’re so short on money this year we aren’t exchanging gifts with anyone other than my kids, and I made their presents (I did buy them each one little thing, under $9 a piece.) I did get a lovely gift from some jellies, and all I did was to say I was cold! Their gift warmed my body and my heart.

It was a video game console. It fit perfectly. ^_^

@Seek_Kolinahr LOL. Well I’m glad you got the right size. 8—)
