    I got a bunch of blu-rays (brian setzer, crossroads, metallica/megadeath/anthrax/slayer, rush) The Keith Richards autobiography.

    I played guitar santa this year to my niece...can't have her playing a Strat forever...

    My wife totally ignored my insistence that I don't need any more stuff, and not to get me anything. She bought me an iPod Touch. Stupid wife. :p

    Lessee...a book on the Third Reich's downfall, lots of skinnier-me sized sweaters & pullovers, a Garmin (so I don't get as lost on the way to gigs!) and...
    an M13 (okay, I got this myself from ebay)! Man, am I psyched-the midi/usb cable & expression pedal are on the way...

    Just about to start setting up sounds to match the pedals I'm taking off my board for it now!

    I got that bar stool and a Kindle. My parents and my mother in law still give my wife and I money. I'll probably blow some of it on guitar related stuff (a pedal or something) and the rest will just get spent on day to day things.

    I didn't get much this Xmas, some moola from the parents/inlaws, some Oakleys from the wifey...but I cannot complain since this year I've already bought myself a '62AVRI Strat, Amer. Series Tele, an ESP shredder,an Epi LP jr., a champ 600 and a slew of MXR pedals with a Furman pedal board and about 5 sets of pickups.

    I'm Dave and I'm a musicaholic.

    As is tradition in my family, I got a few small inexpensive-but-thoughtful gifts (two books, some chocolate, camera film, etc.) and then an envelope full of money so that I can head out shopping for myself.

    Now it comes down to figuring out what to buy, I guess.

    Sweatshirts, T Shirts, Socks, Underwear, set of JJ Tubes for the Blues Junior, Ear Buds & a new wedding band from my wife. Mine got lost years ago. Problem is it's 3 sizes too small. I've got fat fingers over the years. Our 42nd anniversary is in February.
    My brother gave me 2 bottles of his favorite wine. Granddaughter gave me a 2011 Fender Calendar. I'm a happy man, friends & family.

    Nothing goofy about the guitar. Is that your design and work? :D

    All my niece got from me is a Squier 51; you won't be seeing a picture tho since she's already 2 inches taller than me and still growing! :eek:

    Box of cigars, Fender Custom Shop desk calendar, and a Epiphone Allen Woody Bass. Not a Tele, but it is what I wanted. Great Christmas!

    Santa didn't bring me anything. That's OK, I was bad this year. It was worth it.

    My wife got me the Keith Richards book. I didn't ask for anything and I'm not sure how she knew I wanted it. Sometimes I wonder what I did to deserve that woman.

    I got the usual socks, Uncle John Reader, slippers and a really nice hooded sweater.

    Then we went to have Christmas dinner in Disfunction Junction (aka my Mother In Law's house).

    Some books, including one on Kwanzaa Parker (wait, that's not right; this season gets me all confused); I mean Quanah Parker and the end of the Comanche nation. My wife got me two nice bottles of Bordeaux and a pair of Lucchese boots.

    The look on my daughter's face when my 13-year-old son nailed the perfect gift for her (a Beatles ukulele book) and a hug from my normally too-cool-for -school son for a bag of pistachios.

    They also liked their new ipods.

    The look on my wife's face when she opened the exact replica of her favorite Chinese teapot that she broke a couple of weeks ago.

    I got some Lindt chocolate, a Pez dispenser, a cool little book of album covers that my 10-year old daughter picked out, a DVD of The Last Waltz, and some homemade cookies, all of which could have come from the supermarket, a total cash value of about $25.

    But hugs and smiles from my wife, and my kids, and my niece and getting attacked by a dinosaur by my five-year old great nephew, and even the best dog in world eating part of Christmas dinner added up to one thing.
    Best. Christmas. Ever.

    It's way better to give than to receive.
