QOTD: What Did You Get/Give For Christmas?

Ah Christmas, it's the time for giving – and receiving! Yes, yes, I know that there's a lot more to Christmas than just presents, but our capitalistic society has made us focus a lot on gift giving.

While that may detract from the true spirit of Christmas, we're all consumers here and we love new shiny things.

So tell us, dear readers, what did you get for Christmas? What was the coolest gift that you had the pleasure of giving to someone?

It doesn't even have to be tech-related, so please share with us in the comments below!

    My 1yo got a box of wooden blocks, just squares triangles and circles - that is the coolest gift she ever got :-)

    In terms of electronics, my son got a lego mindstorms, so we've been busy building robots that wander around the house, avoiding objects, and shooting at things. There were also some ds and wii games, all lego-themed.

    My wife and I flew from TN to MN to share the holidays with family; that was an expensive trip, so gift-giving was a little sparse. My wife had made some backpacks for nieces, and some quilts for a number of family members. We got some pottery items from my brother (who just finished an outdoor kiln a few months ago), and my parents gave us 6-day "park hopper" passes for an upcoming WDW trip.

    Bought my mom a ASUS laptop(K60IJ-RBLX05) for Christmas. It should suit her facebook stalking needs just fine.
