Following on from the Teapot thread, since I am a nosey bovine and own Xmas was a pressie free zone - would love to hear what everyone received yesterday

I got a make up set - lip gloss, eyeshadows and some rather funky false eyelashes grin some dkny perfume and some face powder from Himself. And a lovely fruity bubble bath set and some nice moisturiser and shower stuff from my parents. And a lovely little bit of material with stitching on it from my youngest.

It was all really lovely. It was so nice to have things to open on Christmas Day. I felt really spoiled grin. It's just so nice when people go to the trouble of getting you a present. I felt like a kid grin

Highs - New hair dryer, facial voucher, electric whisk.

Highest point- my mum and dad bought DD the rocking horse i fell in love with but couldn't afford to buy her.

Lows - Box of dark chocolates blurghh. also v. v. noisy bus parents bought DD.

I got loads of nice things (too embarrassed to list everything, though nothing cost £100s!).

The worst thing I got was a kind of kitchen 'starter set' with a grater and tin opener etc.

I left home 7 years ago. What do my parents think I've been doing since then with cheese?

lowest present was a piggy bank. Lost job this yr so rather tactless and i'll be damned if ole ceramic piggy is getting a single penny when i need them NOW!! wink

Are they trying to wean you off Dairylea, Sally?

Mumsnut Sun 26-Dec-10 17:02:59

The autographs of David Cameron and George Osborne, with fulsome private message, handsomely framed.

Paul Smith perfume off DS,
Ghost perfume off DD2
money off mum,FIL and SMIL,

Didn't get any bad presents this year as MIL stayed away.

BibiBlocksberg Sun 26-Dec-10 17:08:04

That HAS to be the most random gift I have EVER heard of Mumsnut shock

Fine if you are real fans of them but since you say you don't know why!!

Who did you receive that from? Sorry, did say I was nosey

BibiBlocksberg Sun 26-Dec-10 17:10:03

"tickets to The British Grand Prix and overnight accommodation off DD1 and her BF [GRIN]"

Best send those to me so I can keep them safe for you. Wouldn't want them to get used by me lost grin

Several hundred Jade Goody books from my mum hmm and nice new pjs and new mug and a Jamie Oliver book (30 minute meals)

SantasENormaSnob Sun 26-Dec-10 17:17:06

shock at mumsnut

my highs were a new camera, nice make up and smellies, pajamas, slippers, a slanket!!, posh nail varnish and lots of choccy and alcohol.

lows were a art tile thing for my kitchen that is as about opposite from my decor as possible. Very random and bizzare gift from my lovely gran

TheParasiteofChristmasPast Sun 26-Dec-10 17:23:23

i had a double scale life mould of my body made out of plutonium, 2000 doves released at midnight spelling out my name with tiny sparklers tied to their heads, a baby tiger, diamond encrusted toilet seat and a toblerone

The3Bears Sun 26-Dec-10 17:42:32

I got some grey sheepskin UGGS , Some new ghds as mine had broken earlier in the year, 2 nails inc collections in gorgeous colours

dexifehatz Sun 26-Dec-10 17:43:42

my birthday was last week, so I get saft presents for Xmas.I got a HUGE catering tin of coffee off hubbie and a beautiful candle votive decorated in silver beads from the kids which they chose themselves ( I waited outside Poundland while they went in with their Dad!)Oh and half a box of mint chocolates off Dexter aged 5...but he did wrap them himself!!!

BibiBlocksberg Sun 26-Dec-10 17:45:26

Are you perhaps in fact Beyonce, Parasite?

grin

Bit council that your Toblerone wasn't at least gold plated though.

Pah, some people

BibiBlocksberg Sun 26-Dec-10 17:47:02

"my birthday was last week, so I get saft presents for Xmas"

saft means juice where I come from (germany)

Laughing at your juicy presents now

SpannerPants Sun 26-Dec-10 17:49:19

Highs: gorgeous Tiffany silver starfish necklace from DP and HD camcorder from my parents (I'm expecting the first grandchild so they're very excited)

Low: fake fur trimmed hat, gloves and weird twisty scarf from DP's mum. The hat isn't quite big enough for my big head, which adds to the overall effect grin

BramblyHedge Sun 26-Dec-10 17:51:34

My mum got a glass snow globe with robins in it from her sister. It had the price on it... and the name of my stepmum (ie. mum's ex husband's wife) on the front.

They do actually get on and usually exchange nice normal pressies so it was a bit random.
