A poster of Johnny Cash giving the finger, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books, a blanket, new shoes, socks, a four-pack of organic root beer, pyrex food containers, a new skillet, many packs of Hamburger Helper, a puzzle and some coasters. Very good indeed!
Fender Starcaster Strat, Skyrim for PS3, WWE 12 for xbox 360 & Disneyland the game for Xbox 360.
Christmas was good.
edit - not a stratocaster....I'm not good enough to own that guitar. However, I love playing this thing. It's like learning to play guitar all over again but with a curve since I know the chords. Just about as perfect as a gift as you can give a 14 year novice guitar player!
big bang theory seasons 1-3, Captain America, True Grit (John Wayne version). Nerf Gun, clothes of various sorts, Yatzee card game.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

I got two books, the remastered editions of Gish & Siamese Dreams, the OMG-50 best moments in WWE dvd, complete set of 3rd rock from the sun dvds, a set of coasters with images of Pearl Jam album, some more stuff I cannot remember now, and lastly from my future parents-in-law, a Blackhawks hat and Bears fleece blanket as well as a warm welcome in the family (this is the first time I met them in person)
This shirt, from my wife, was definitely my favorite gift:
I also got a Bose Wave music system from my dad, a heap of Star Wars stuff (3 t-shirts, a jacket, and 2 mugs), a Fear Agent trade, the 1988 World Series on DVD, Season 2 of Fringe, and various gift cards. I think I did alright.
My first Christmas present arrived today (I didn't know it was a Christmas present, and it wasn't gift-wrapped, so I opened it).
It's an advance copy of the pop/R&B album "Eclipse" by my best friend Keven Porter Jr. (professional name: KEVEN). The album won't be released until February, but until then, only Keven, his independent record studio, family and friends have copies!
And it's an excellent album as well, an improvement even on his first one, "Darklight". I can't recall ever receiving a more unique gift before!

I got my parents running around trying to figure out where the hell they put my Blu Ray player for 20 minutes after we were done with presents. Which was more priceless than the actually present. Of course, they do my birthday early due the traveling on do, so they gave me Star Wars on Blu Ray as well as DKR, so I knew what was up. They also got me Prometheus, Chinatown, miracle day, some Steelers shirts, a new foreman grill and sweeper. My sister got me Jaws and the wife got me Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and the Enterprise-D and backe to the Future Deloren ornaments.

Funny you should mention Bruce Springsteen. In 1995 I waited until midnight to pick up his Greatest Hits at the HMV in downtown Toronto. There was also a draw to win some prizes, none of which I won. I was probably the youngest(24)
