    This year I got Mike Tyson's latest book, 2 metronomes (I listen to them while I sleep, work and read. Yes, I know that it's weird), my old lady had an artist from England do a self portrait of myself to hang in my office (yes, I'm self centered), a Townes Van Zandt record and the usual chocolates and treats.

    Not as elaborate and expensive as what I usually receive but I much prefer these as they're actually things that I appreciate and want.
    We stopped checking for monsters under our beds when we realized they were inside us.

    I got $400 in clothing but we've agreed to return it and get car parts

    So far, it has been my self gifts: GTX970 video card and Samsung U28D590D 4K monitor. A bigger list will appear in this post in about 14 hours when Christmas is done :P

    Stocking:

    -Wheel of Time box set #3, books 7-9
    -Socks
    -French press
    -Coffee
    -Various GC's (movies, books, etc)
    -Some lactose free candies
    -Tea
    -Tea thingy (a tea box type thing, not entirely sure yet)
    -Microwave egg poacher thing (nifty!)
    -Microwave popcorn popper (as my air popper is dying)

    Big gifts were great this year:
    -preorder for The Order 1886
    -Monoprice USB AMP/DAC for my headset (AKG 712 Pros I got for my Bday)
    -Convection toaster oven (as my old one get crap all over it)
    -Nexus 6 32GB from WIND Mobile

    For my family, the stocking is where you put all the fun gifts, the small gifts, or things that don't feel "major."

    My favorite gifts I got so far from the wife were 3 12" LP's. Marshall Mathers 2 LP, Beastie Boys Ill Communication and Dr Dre The Chronic.

    Also got a new wrench set, some speakers for the car, a stubby hammer, a t-shirt and a hoodie, all from my wife and kid, they love me lol

    Going to the in-laws later for dinner and more presents for the family. My kid got a mass amount of stuff, it's ridiculous, he's into Lego and ninja turtles, so it was an expensive year lol
