Somewhere where the weather isn't killing me
Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 8 volume 1: The Long Way Home
The Tales of Beedle the Bard
Necropolis by Anthony Horowitz
Brisingr by Christopher Paolini
The Dark Knight
The Chronicles of Narnia - Prince Caspian
24 Redemption

Not a bad haul if I may say so. Mind you, as I don't own 24 season 6 yet and 24 Redemption is the prequel for season 7 there's a minor ****-up there, but what the hey.

That's not including the stocking stuff.

Spot on, there's a deeper happiness than the quick smile a present can bring

My family don't go in for presents much, it's basically a few token gifts. Did get the DVD of Amelie off of one friend though. Not seen it before, so was something to enjoy whilst waiting for dinner

Spot on BS. I got a few token bits and bobs and a decent torch for work which was just what I wanted and was split between the wife, daughter and father-in-law. Other than that my day was made happy by watching the delight on my daughters face, a huge great dinner (which I cooked) and a nice relaxing day. Couldn't have asked for more.

Also spot on. If I want something then I go and buy it. That way I get what I want and not what someone else hopes I want.
