Poll: Best Gift/Worst Gift of the season

So what were the best and worst of your haul this year?  =)

My best was a new iron because mine has been getting pretty icky on the iron part.

Worst was my mother actually thought it would be a good idea to buy me langerie... not plain cotton panties, I could almost accept that, but she bought me lacy underwear and matching bras.

Re: Poll: Best Gift/Worst Gift of the season

  • My best was my new kitchen aid food processor my old one (not KitchenAid) broke last year so I was way excited to get a new one.

    My worst would be the gallon bucket of moose munch from my grandmother-in-law... haha There is no way we can consume that much moose munch.

  • Best gift would be from H and LO it was  little charm bracelet with "mom" and LOs birthstone charm on it.  I was hinting that I would like to dress up more and have some jewelry too since LO is facinated by jewelry so it was nice to be surprised and have some sentimentality with it.  

    worst?  nothing really....I did get a pair of those pajama jeans that I usually think are pretty tacky but I wore them today and man they are comfy! I dont know if I will wear them outside the house, but DH couldn't tell I was still wearing comfy pj clothes.

  • It's a toss up :)  DH and DD made me a handprint ornament in clay- which is a lot for my DH- he's not exactly artistic.  I also got an iPad which I adore.

    Worst- my MIL got me some "interesting" clothes.

  • There were sooo many bests this year!  I was loaded up with camera gear - new lens, tripods, lens filters, beeeeautiful camera bag (that is about to double as a purse because I love it that much) etc.  I'd probably say my new lens. 

    Worst?  Nothing yet.  We've only done Christmas with my family so far and everything was seriously better than I could have imagined.  I was royally spoiled this year :)

    Next best: Cash money, my new netbook, giftcard to Compass.Grill, and new linen closet for our bedroom.

    Worst: Nothing really. Well maybe the mastitis I got on Christmas Eve. Indifferent

    What bag did you get?  I am looking for one!

    Best: I have two. My H got me the David Yurman ring I have had my eye on for my right hand :-)  My parents got me a new Canon DSLR camera with two lenses (hence why I am curious about your bag Jaye). 

    Worst: Nothing really, I got some really great and thoughtful gifts from my family.  I do not have a huge family , just my folks, my H and my in laws, all who are very thoughtful :-)

    What bag did you get?  I am looking for one!

    I got the Kelly  Moore B Hobo in Muted Teal. http://kellymoorebag.com/womens/kelly-moore-b-hobo-bag-3.html I love it because it looks like a purse, and isn't so ungodly huge that I feel weird carrying it.  But it still has plenty of room.  I can fit my body with a 50mm in the center and then two lenses in the side spaces with tons of room to spare.  Plus there are zipper compartments on the outside.  It's wonderful!

    I also really love the Mimi bag, but I wanted to be able to carry it on my shoulder without using the long shoulder strap and the Mimi handles are too small.   

  • Best: DH and I got a gift card to The 99 from my parents.  It's one of our favorite places but they only have them back east and we always have to go when we're back there.  They babysat so we could go with my brother and his wife. 

    Worst: Nothing really.  This year was more about my daughter so we didn't get much for ourselves.
