The best gift I got was from my gf, who took me to get my hair colored Ariel red and I love it so much. I've been wanting to go bright for a while and it came out amazing<3
I also got some stuff for my computer, some Razer headphones (very welcome since my last pair just died), some money, soft and fluffy pajamas, and of course candy from my grandparents. My dad still has something in the mail for me apparently, which is exciting.
Gave my brother a new wristband for his Apple Watch, and my dad a new headphone jack for his iPhone.
For me, I got:
$200 in cash
$150 in Best Buy gift cards
$50 Target gift card
A $50 Chickie's and Pete's card with a $10 bonus
A Mod Pizza $50 gift card with a free pizza + soda coupon
Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate for Switch
A military brand Brian Dawkins jersey
A festive black and blue sweater
A Cedar Point Holiday Bundle for 2019, which includes admission, parking and one meal deal for $47, which is well under half the normal price. Will have to arrange a visit to Ohio in the spring or summer to use it!
Not THAT much, but I did get my list in rather on the late side. But I'm happy with what I got for the most part!
i always feel kinda weird about telling people what i get as presents idk why i think it's that i don't wanna sound like i'm bragging
a bunch of vinyl (joanne, born to die, paradise, red, death of a bachelor, and i bought more for myself and will be going out on friday to buy more lol)
candle (winter candy apple; smells absolutely amazing and there is no doubt that i'll buy more in the future)
leslie knope ornament
a sweatshirt and pj pants
kirby star allies uwu

nick got me a sandygast plush. it is ridiculously squimshy and hugging it makes me feel so happy.
solar got me a pusheen backpack. i don't know when i'll use it but it's the most pure and adorable backpack i've ever seen.
bubba got me discord nitro.
my secret santa's message was so nice it made me cry.

i got my roommate a cool little umbreon figure since he loves umbreon and is always wanting stuff to put on his desk.
i got bubba a little super happy turtwig figure/finger puppet thing.
i got my boyfriend a bunch of plushies like maybe 60$ worth. even tho plushies aren't rly his thing... that's ok it just means he needed more in his life.
i drew a thing for secret santa and everyone easily guessed it was me but im glad he liked it.
i also opened a package today that i wasn't sure who it was from, turned out it was something i bought myself that just took forever to ship - a keychain plush of pikachu in mega altaria costume from pokemoncenter. so i guess that was a christmas present to myself LOL. it's so fluffy and wonderful, ty me.
it makes me feel loved and thought of that some people decided to gift me things, and seeing reactions to the gifts i gave made me so incredibly happy, it made this christmas so special for me especially since i couldn't rly show my love in other ways. i love the holidays

I got mostly Overwatch and Danganronpa stuff, which is actually just what I wanted. I got two Danganronpa hoodies, one with the entire cast of the first two games on it, and one with the Hopes Peak high school on it. Then I got a Bischu OWL jersey and an LA Gladiators hat. Then my brother got me the Overwatch Mercy jacket, an Overwatch wallet, and an Overwatch hat. It was a really great year and I really needed new hoodies since mine are all really old so I was happy with my gifts. The DR hoodie with the casts on it especially was really awesome.
I got a cute lamp, an expensive lightbulb for said lamp, meowy Christmas fuzzy socks, Monsters University and Lady and the Tramp on bluray, the Spyro Reignited Trilogy, and Detective Pikachu. If trends continue as they have for most of my life my parents will bring back money from my grandma for each of us on their visit to Oklahoma.
I'm also getting gifts from Ravey when he visits, but those are still a mystery
A bit of an interesting one this year. I kept making fun of my mum because the last couple Christmasses were all Star Wars themed and so I asked if she could give it a bit of a break. So this year I got:
From my parents:
Wacky Races t-shirt.
Wacky Races complete series on DVD.
"How to be Dastardly" by **** Dastardly, book.
"Ask an Astronaut" by Tim Peake, book.
"Hello, is this Planet Earth" by Tim Peake, a collection of photography taken of the Earth from the International Space Station, in book form.
Tiny-ass music box that plays the Star Wars theme.
From my sister:
Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit.
Some sweets in a jar.
Hot chocolate and marshmallows in a jar.
Artifact, Distrust, Divinity Original Sin 2, Monster Hunter World, and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, all on Steam from various friends.
All in all, a good haul. No idea why there were so many Wacky Races themed gifts, but it was a pleasant surprise. Loved that show as a kid so quite the blast from the past. And I laughed when I realised my mum couldn't resist getting me SOMETHING Star Wars related, but the music box is super cute and very well crafted so I let it slide. I love space stuff so the Tim Peake gifts were also really great too.
Gifts from me to other people this year were... ehhh. I felt super uninspired and I feel like I didn't make as much of an effort as I would have liked. I put it down to my crappy mental state lately, but I still tried to get people things they'd like. Namely alcohol and chocolates. I did have some noteworthy ones though, I got my sister a Wiccan-themed ink and quill set, her fiancé a back massage (because he separated his shoulder a few months ago and while he's been steadily recovering, he's still in agony), my cousin a copy of Rimworld on Steam, his fiancé a £15 Amazon card, and their daughter a bathtub disco light. I got a WoW friend one of the cute store pets. I also bought another couple of back massage coupons for coworkers who have also been having a rough time lately.
Next year I hope to do better with gifts rather than going to my fallback plan of chocolates and alcohol. Nevertheless, everyone seemed to like them, so can't complain too much really!
I got a $100 dollar gift card, which I spent entirely on chocolate bc I'm a horrible chocoholic. A Bio Ionic GoldPro curling iron, which I wanted so I could curl my thick hair successfully!! My older one didn't get hot enough which was very disappointing. =/ I also got cute vintage socks, a sleepshirt, a bracelet, a necklace, and a black crepe tunic top. I also got more chocolate! My aunt went to a chocolatier shop and picked me up some gourmet chocolates. :')
I got a giftcard for haircuts, some money, candy, a practice mute for my trumpet (I hope it's not too loud still, I haven't tested it out yet), a Mickey Mouse snow globe with a picture holder, a t-shirt, and the Planet of the Apes reboot trilogy (I love these movies tbh). My mom and one of my brothers also helped pay for furniture and stuff after/during my move back in September.
I'm also getting gifts from Christy when I visit, but THOSE are still a mystery too. The gifts I got her will remain a mystery for several more days tbh.
I got my family a variety of different things: a movie, book, and hot sauces for one brother, a sweater and peanuts for the other, and I paid towards a new phone for my mom with the first brother.
i got some clothes, a graphic novel i wanted, smash for switch and bravely second, a switch case (really needed one considering ive been using a cardboard box for like a year) and a couple of other things im probably forgetting.
oh and a roomba. can't wait to try it out in the apartment :-D
