Xmas Presents 2008!

If you look closely, you can see that the photo is actually a wedding cake, but of course, this list is about this year's Xmas presents! The best gifts I received for Xmas 2008 were:
  1. Various cheques from various family members - money is a really good thing right now. 
  2. A granite pestle and mortar from my brother and sister-in-law - a totally inspired gift, I've wanted to buy one myself for a long time but haven't because they're so heavy to carry home from the shops!
  3. A beautiful silver charm bracelet! A great gift in particular, as I am apparently very difficult to buy for. This means people can now get me charms for future birthdays and Xmasses
  4. DVDs of Transformers and The Science of Sleep, both of which have been on my wish list for quite a while. 
  5. Books: Kim Edwards' The Memory Keepers Daughter, Eat, Drink and Be Gorgeous by Esther Blum, Stephen Fry's An Incomplete and Utter History of Classical Music and Letters to a Law Student by Nicholas J McBride. 
  6. The usual chocolates, cosmetics etc. all gratefully received! 
What fabulous gifts did you get for Xmas this year?

1. $55 in gift cards for Barnes and Noble!
2. Super cute clothes
3. The new Harry Potter Tales of the Beedle Bard book
4. Homemade hot cocoa mix
5. New earrings. I'm really picky when it comes to buying and wearing earrings, so I've worn the same earring for about...well...three years now. I decided I needed a change, and I really liked the earrings that were picked out for me =]

1. A mod blue jacket! It makes me feel like a deranged marching band leader who escaped from the early 1960's!
2. Orange headphones!
3. Money! (Usually considered gauche in my family, but I'm going away next semester, so it is totally wonderful, as I don't really have a need for 'things')
4. Earrings that look like they fell out of a Klimt painting!
5. Socks/Longsleeved shirts/chocolate- unbearable practical things I never bother buying for myself.

In all, a very appreciably practical Christmas. Oh, and the gifts I gave were wonderful too.
