Ok so there is a thread for what you got for Christmas, but didn't see one for what you GAVE for Christmas.

I gave the following:
A model rocket to a friend who likes to build those.
Some random complete old school video games to friends who are also collectors.
DVDs to family members

I gave a bunch of shit to different people, but the one that's most appreciated: I snuck out a little picture of me and my brother from my mother's place, enlarged it, printed and framed it to replace a bigger copy of it that was destroyed years ago and gave it to my mother as part of her gift. I'm making another copy for my grandmother.

Haha, that was actually what I was thinking so I told her I would only get if for her if she didn't end up like the girls on the news who make asses of themselves. If I get the feeling shes turning to the dark side I'll take the book and burn it!
