I got past the materialistic part of Christmas a long time ago. It's mostly about having a good time and making sure my daughters have a good time, too (and giving THEM lots of presents that they like).

I circled a few goodies,(parts and accessories), in the Bushmaster catalogue and let it be known that any or all of the items would be appreciated as christmas gifts. They must have thought that each of my mags needs it's own stripper clip spoon. Does anybody need a stripper clip spoon? I now have a few extra. The handguard removal tool was way more useful than I thought it would be. Very handy.

A shirt was too small, but my wife likes it so I will just re-gift it to her.

I'll be sharing it with Mother Earth.

Much thanks to the Horse & Goats!

Believe me, there are times when nothing is better than some things you can get.  

I promise.

Same thing every christmas, just too many damn shirts. No room for them. I also got a-shirts and boxer/briefs that are just too damn big. I hate being the one that has to do the exchange for the right sizes.

Two shirts that would have bought a case of Federal 5.56.  

Mambo cologne.

That is exactly what I did and it worked out very well.

Well, yes and no.

My wife wants a separation!!!

But she still wants to have sex!!!

Does that qualify?

My bro gave me Armorall and window cleaner.

I told him next year he's getting refill bags for his Hoover vacuum cleaner and maybe a broom.

I will be more than happy to take all your "stinky" armani merchandise off your hands, My gf was going to buy some of it for me for Xmas, but its pretty expensive, and I do like the scent.

Got anything you'd like to trade?

Hmmmn, this could become an unofficial ARFCOM gift exchange thread...

Man....I love all of my gifts, but I would probably give you $20 or $30 for the whole deal.

What scent is the package you got?

Damnit Wave, I thought you just were brutally misspelling Armani, but you arent, you actually have something else. Damn, I am looking for Armani cologne, as it has been described to me by women as "orgasm of the nose"

This is first time in memory that I didn't get something utterly useless, but it's not over, the sister in law still has her chance on Saturday.  They finally got the message to stop buying gadgets (children's toys) for me.

The wife came through big time this year, but I fear the cost is new hardwood floors.

"All I got was a rock."....Charlie Brown


But seriously,  I've never liked it when someone wasted a gift box by putting CLOTHES into it.  And after all these years, my mother still insists on doing that.   I've said many times that I'd rather have one gift that's NOT clothes than  three gifts if two of them contain clothes.    If you want to give me clothes, that's fine, but just hand them to me and don't defile a gift box with them.  It gets hopes up for no good reason.

I got a wallet I don't need because I already have a spare, unused wallet, and my current wallet is still holding together thanks to those last five stitches that won't give it up.  I won't replace it until those stitches have failed.

I got an alarm clock...the LAST thing I ever want to see again!  I'm self employed partially to AVOID those damned things!

I HAVE been known to hammer an alarm clock to death on occasion, or throw one out a window. (Note to self:  When throwing alarm clock out of window, next time make sure window is OPEN first!)

And I personally like getting cloths because I hate cloths shopping. And the GF did good this year by getting me the Hip-hoptionary which I think his just Fing Hilarious.

I got a digital cam and photo printer combo, ended up surprising the hell out of my wife when she saw the set of skis and bindings me and her mother got her on top of some workout equipment she wanted. She said it was much better than the cheap diamond pendant she wanted. The look on her face was priceless and I could tell I definitely made her day.

Christmas for us isn't about presents... My immediate family each gives each member one to two items, for traditions sake, and that's it...

But the stuff we did exchange was all well recieved... And this year I [b]actually needed a bag of white socks & a pair of jeans[/b], so the one 'Oh not again' item (my Mom's traditional gift) was quite well recieved....

Got the usual useless gifts from my mom...

...(not kidding) junk food. Candy, etc.

She isn't wrapped too tight.

[i]However[/i] she did give me $50 that went directly to 2 Colt 1911 mags, .50 cal ammo can, mag pouch, and bipod (cheapo zytel). So it was not a total loss.
