One of those new twisty d-pad 360 controllers

Inception on Blu-Ray
Red Dead Redemption
Fallout: New Vegas
The Sly Collection
Various gift cards to Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, and Amazon (some of which have been redeemed for an iPod Touch)

Ipod touch 
Leather Jacket 
Bunch of Clothes  
$150 cash 
..... 
I got some great things this year and this was the first year I actually got something for my parents.  Got my dad a bluray player with Iron Man 1 and 2, and Avatar and bought my mom an HD webcam.  Cost me around $350 which is a lot considering I'm pretty poor right now but they deserve it.

I'll update this once I open the rest of my gifts in the morning. 
 
So far I got: 
Pajamas 
Assorted Popcorn 
Sweet new leather wallet 
 
I thought the wallet was pretty neat, and thanked my step-grandfather for it. I looked it over more closely and noticed, to my surprise, that it held a $100 bill. 
 That was just the stuff from my step-mom's family. I'll be visiting my other relatives tomorrow. However, I do know that one of my gifts will be a suit for job interviews. I know because I was there when my parents bought it, and they took it and me to the tailor so they could get it adjusted.

NOTHING!

#41 Posted by Dick_Mohawk (375 posts) -

I used to buy a lot of gifts for others until I realised while I was spending lots, I was receiving crap. Last year that changed, I told everyone to keep their money and just get themselves a gift. Worked out well, last year was the first time in ages I could get myself something decent. (40" Samsung lcd tv), this year, a 360 s with red dead and a sidewinder x4 keyboard. I had played red dead on the ps3 beforehand. While both versions play in hd, the ps3 version only played in 720p while the 360 plays in full 1080p....weird!

@Unknown_Pleasures: They do pretty well.  Much better than me.  But more importantly, Christmas has always been a huge deal to my mom.  Even though my sister and I are grown and out of the house, my mom still goes crazy on Christmas.  Probably partially because she couldn't afford nearly as much when we were kids.

I asked for nothing, I got basically nothing. 
 
Over the last few years, i've been really fortunate with my birthday and Christmas presents, there wasn't really anything I wanted/needed.
