What are the best gifts you have given or received for Christmas / Hanukkah this year?

My sister sent me a case full of high quality frozen meats from steaks to hot dogs. This is the best gift I have ever gotten even second year in a row.

The best gifts I got were a pair of boots (they're comfortable and they look really badass) or a set of books (the UnWind series by Neal Shusterman).

The best gift I gave was either a pair of socks that I made or a CD/playlist of Broadway tunes that I picked and arranged for my sister.

But my family is celebrating Christmas again tomorrow because we do weird things like that so I mean my answer could change in the next 24 hours.

Best gift I've received was a Scottish pen shaped like an arrow.
Best gift I've given was an appreciative personalised book.

I love giving presents. I always put a lot of thought into my gifts. This year I got my grandmothers Michael Kors bags (#basic) and my grandpa's different things they each like, like good cigars and chocolate. I made my globe trotting parents an epic gift basket with a bunch of travel themed presents. I gave my little brother a new bowl and some weed (which he loved). My sister is obsessed with her dog, so I got us tickets for a paint-and-sip where we can drink wine and paint her dog lol.

I got my boo a telescope from Astronomer's Without Borders, because it's the best scope for the money and 1/2 the proceeds go to promoting astronomy and science in developing nations which I know she'd appreciate. I included a weekend getaway to somewhere with less light pollution to watch the Eta Aquarids with her in May. I also got her a t-shirt that says "I just want to pet my dog and pretend Obama is still in office" to match the onesie I got her, which says I <3 Obama on the back... Yes, I'm in love with a liberal. It's interesting. I got her some lefty stickers (and clothes and shoes, etc.) as well.

My favorite gift this year was my new puppy (!), and a Christmas bonus that was bigger than expected. But really I love the little stocking stuffers and other things that seem very personal or specific to me. As cliche as it sounds, it really is the thought that counts. It feels good when someone takes the time to know you and think about what you would really want or need.

What breed? Boy or girl? What's his/her name?

My favorite gift this year was a flannel my uncle got me that literally feels like a blanket. It's heavy enough to wear as a jacket.

I wasn't at the top of my game giving gifts this year

He's a 3 month old male German Shepherd mix named Fleetwood "Mac" that I rescued from the South :)

That sounds awesome. I'm obsessed with comfy blankets. It sounds like a lame gift but I would actually love (another) really soft blanket lol.

Same. Outside of my immediate family and grandparents, everyone else got gift cards (I have a big family). Usually I spend A LOT and invest a lot of time and energy, but this year I've been kinda low on both, and down emotionally as well. I'm optimistic that next year will be better.

Best give I gave to someone was a role of tape, claiming I wanted to give them something useful.
