I didn't get anything really unexpected. I got nice gifts from DH. He is a good gift giver. Gets me a new perfume each year. My mom got me some really cozy leggings.

BS got me a homemade snow globe from school. He also gave me a Christmas card with a really nice note it in. He did the same for DH.

Skids got DH nothing. No surprise there.

i didnt get anything for Christmas at home, months ago hubby and i agreed not to get eachother anything (although i did spend about 50.00 on him anyway Blum 3 ). and the boys dont buy adults presents, they are always the receivers. i wonder if/when that may change when they are adults.

i was very surprised by an ex-coworker. he brought me a tin of popcorn, and the wonderful news that he is a grandfather! he found out two months after his only child (son) committed suicide, they did a dna test of course, and now even have grand-parent visitation and are forming a lovely bond with their granddaughter. he said she looks JUST like her daddy did when he was a baby!

DH and I got each other plumbing this year along with a couple of small gifts. He got me a magnetic bar for my knives and I got him a heated mattress pad.

BD gave us thoughtful gifts, gear for hiking and a nice French press, along with carefully chosen antique books.

Skids giving DH gifts? :?

LOL! If only it was that fun. It was a cracked pipe in the basement that was letting sewer gas out and making the house smell bad. Older houses have their own special joy.

Nothing better than the smell of stale farts.
My parents had a septic system and when it would rain a lot in the spring, the house would smell of spring flowers and rotten eggs.

Anything good? - I asked for two things and DH got them both for me. A new FitBit Charge 2 and a lemon/lime juicer kitchen gadget.

Anything unexpected? - a funny sign from my mom that said "my doctor says I need glasses. Wine glasses"

What did the skids get you and/or your SO? - that would be nothing. As usual.

What about your bios? - DD25 gave us $100 in AMC Theater gift cards. Thing1 and Thing2 gave us a $100 Lowe's gift card

Anything that you have to return or re-gift? - nope

This was probably the year I got the least I've ever gotten. I got two bottles of wine, and a blanket with an owl on it that looks like Hedwig. But I'd still say it was one of the best Xmas' of my life. It was awesome. I don't really care about presents for me. I care about getting my kiddos good presents and they loved their gifts and were grateful and had big giants smiles on their faces. And I got to see my mom and twin sisters!

I want to be reincarnated as one of your felines. Many humans will never receive that royal treatment. Just know that I prefer poultry over seafood.

Hey, there is not problem spoiling the heck out of your Fuzzy Umpkins. I have two myself who have full run of my apartment and that is literally no joke. They have three beds but they sleep with me every night. All the fleece blankets have become theirs because they enjoy laying on them. More toys than I can count. Treats everyday when I get home from work. Oh and the big one and they really do love it harnesses and leashes so they can play outside. I worry to much to let them out on their own I live in a busy area, they love it and run to the door when I grab the leashes.

Go you for spoiling the heck out of them.

Anything good? Kitchenaid Mixer the Big boy from my mom & a really nice power drill from SO. I really did want it.

Anything unexpected? Yeah future in -laws gave me cash same amount as my SO. I was pretty surprised.

What did the skids get you and/or your SO? A fruit infused water bottle. I do like it.

What about your bios? N/A

Anything that you have to return or re-gift? Future MIL gave me a holiday bath and body works set. She did not know that I am allergic to a lot of scented things. Future SIL got one too and sprayed herself (she did not know either) I sneezed all day and couldn't breath. Oh well.
