    I bought a lot of expensive stuff from Selfridges and Harrods before Christmas so on Christmas day I didn't get much material stuff. I got movies, some Lana Del Rey stuff (awesome), clothes, aftershaves and the usual stuff like chocolate.

    I got £500 collectively though so I'm happy aha.

    I got a hammock, it's going to be great (and goes well with the tarpaulin I got for my birthday last month!), my dad wood turned me a really beautiful pen, my sister got me some sheet music I've been wanting and a magnesium fire starter. I also got a slightly too posh for me CK toiletry set which is very nice but just not my thing, I'm sure I'll use it at some point but I'm not sure what point that will be! Aside from that the normal chocolates and nibbles

    Some things I was really pleased with, but I'm not a very materialistic person. I prefer things that can't be bought ... except maybe chocolate :mmm:

    From my mum and her BF I got a fruit bowl and a book/cd rom kit on driving theory, which are nice and what I wanted. Also some gloves, lip balm and shower gel.

    they also got my boyfriend a small tool kit and some gloves.

    I am grateful for nice presents, but I'm a bit surprised my mum didn't give me any money. I know that sounds really bad but.... She normally does? She kept asking me what else I wanted, and I was saying about getting my provisional driving licence and driving lessons so I thought she'd give me something towards that but....??
    I was worried that we hadn't spent enough on them this year as we are poorer than usual, but we probably spent the same on them as they did on us, and my older brother seemed to get more spent on him even though he only spent like £20.

    I know you don't give to receive etc but... They have a lot more cash than we do!!!

    I think they generally represent the things I like doing which are playing music and being outdoors/Scouting. I play clarinet, sax, piano and sing but the music was a set of clarinet duets by Crusell which are jolly.

    Didn't get much this year, as the family got a new car not long before Christmas so couldn't spend too much.

    I got a new pair of wellies for an early Christmas present. Nice pair of Aigle wellies that cost well over £100, but ended up just below £100 because of staff discount (my brother works in the shop). I also got a very nice new shirt, along with your typical stuff like underwear, deodrant, chocolate, etc.
