    I can say one of the special ones is a silver heart necklace from my daughter. It has my 3 grandsons names engraved on it..
    As for the gifts from my DH. He does wonderful. He listens to me talk to my friends about things and then he goes searching lol..

    My best gift and every years request is lots of Bubble bath! I am a bubble bath fanatic! It was my getaway when the kids were little and I love to read and soak!

    just hanging out with family - I don't get gifts anymore (at my request) and it's very liberating and relaxing.

    You know my husband and i quit exchanging years ago and love it...at our ages you just buy what you want when you want it..we give lots to our children and grand children and they buy us gifts but we cut back on what they can give us so it works out fine

    I still get gifts from my hubbie and and exchange gifts with my sister and her family. Growing up Christmas was such a big deal - my parents and grandparents went all out! I have to have some gifts under the tree - I'm just shallow like that!

    We don't exchange gifts any more with hubby's family - we make charitable donations in their names and most of them ignore us. ;)

    My favourite gift this year is a Canon Powershot camera - small enough to fit in my pocket or purse. I just love it.

    Having my three brothers and their families here the week after Christmas. Because my husband can't travel anymore, I only see them once a year or every two years during the holidays, and oh how I miss them!

    My best gift was the treadle machine my son and DIL found for me. It truly is a beauty.

    Hubby and I didnt buy for each other this year. Too many things going on, Holidays, sons college graduation. But our son and his NOW fiance' (as of New Years day) had Christmas dinner at their place with her family there and we had the best time. This was their first time doing a holiday meal and they did such a great job and they were proud of how it all worked out. Just seeing the satisfaction on their faces, made what seemed like a bleak holiday into one of the best times I can remember since my parents passed.

    I got an early Christmas present in November - my Brother Innovis 2000 Laura Ashley sewing machine. I really got to enjoy it during my school's winter break. It ends tonight, so it is back to work tomorrow. :(
