  • DH got me matching ruby/diamond earrings and necklace set.  Maroon is the awareness color of Myeloma and DH went to three stores to find a dark colored ruby.
  • My mom got me a pink scarf in my favorite color. I'm wearing it today and I really like it.

  • Giftcards so I can get some new books and a NYE outfit.
  • A chest freezer for our basement!! Jenn
  • It's a tie between two - DH got me a beautiful pair of aquamarine earrings, and my mom framed a postcard of a place that is meaningful for me.

    This was an awesome Christmas.

  • Kindle FIRE!!!!! althought DH is in "trouble" b/c we said we were going to wait on one....but it was a great surprise!

     and my Naked palette!

  • DH got me some really lovely jewelry (necklace and earrings), which is the first time he's bought me jewelry since my engagement ring. It was a really nice surprise.

  • one of my friends in nyc sent us wine from a heron hill (a winery we visited on keuka lake for her anti-bachelorette in 2009) 

    seeing DH's face when i gave him the lego millennium falcon was pretty awesome too

  • The best present I think was the new down comforter my DH bought me.  I had mentioned wanting a new one months ago and he remembered.  It really warmed my heart.

  • I answered this in the other favorite gift post, but mine was my new slippers from DH.  Super lame - but soooooo cozy!

    And ditto jenn - cash.  It's always nice.

  • DH got me the fancy warm winter Sorel boots that I was eyeing a while ago.  I love them.  I will have warm tootsies for years to come -- they are rated to -25 degrees!

  • My sister got us cooking classes at Sur La Table. Can't wait to go!

    And DH gave me The Sound of Music on blu-ray. I've already watched it twice.

  • My 2 favorites are the Wii zumba game I got and a foot spa.
  • Otto did well getting me the Arrested Development series, but the gift my sister got me was completely unexpected and hilarious, which makes it the winner:

    TTC since Mar. 2010; 6 IUIs 2011 = 2 CPs; BFP (conceived naturally) 12/9/11; m/c 1/7/11
  • "Season pass" to watch Top Chef 9 on iTunes. Top Chef is the one reason I miss having TV and Bravo doesn't most many episodes online for free.
    From loss and infertility to two under two!

    Quite a few people on my FB page got this!  Hilarious!

     

    Mine was a FNL Tshirt with Riggins on the back :)

  • My Le Creuset French oven! Hooray!

    An embarrassingly close second was a bottle of Smirnoff Fluffed Marshmallow vodka! Embarrassed

  • Money towards our new dining room light, and help from my dad to install it (and installation of our new flourescent light in the kitchen...)  woo-hoo!

    I also liked my gifts from DH - a red envelope ring holder and mirror, a candy thermometer, and a sushi making thigie. 

  • DH's and my mini-vacation. We had about 24 hours of relaxed, kid-free (except the fetus) bliss...so fabulous.

    I also got some Starbucks gift cards, those are a close second :-) 

  • Technically my iPhone from DH, but I got it last month so it wasn't an official present I opened on Christmas (though he did wrap up the box to be funny). My favorite gift was the Keurig machine my parents gave us. How did we ever live without it???

  • My heated throw - I can warm up just my side of the bed and DH can be happy with his cold cotton sheets.
  • My Canon Rebel t2i from DH! I had been wanting one for ages and didn't even bother asking this year... and he got it for me! Such a great surprise!

    Hahaha... I need to get this for DH... he's always the one bundled up under the comforter while I crack my window and sleep with just a sheet!
