What did your FI/DH get you for Christmas?

FI got me a 'spa' set that has a neck pillow/massager, eye mask and slippers. 

He also got me a 'Keepsake Bridal Bible', which has a page in it that's signed on the wedding day by the officiants, and witnesses. He had it customized with our wedding date: 



He also got me this beautiful frame that lets you record a message on it. He recorded Mark 10: 8-9, which is a passage we would like said at our wedding:



He also ordered the jewellery I fell in love with, but it hasn't arrived yet lol he was so bummed out but I told him he's fine, it has until Sept to arrive ;) Here's the picture from the site:

    Very nice! We are going to the ice wine festival in Niagara Falls as our gift to each other. We decided early that we wanted to save for Hawaii so we were doing no other gifts but the trip. We did exchange cards which I always love!!!

    FI got me fuzzy socks and a water bottle holder for when I go running.  That's all I really wanted.  We're trying to save $$ and be responsible.  I got him hobo gloves for when he gets called out to a crime scene in the cold, he was really excited about that.  Merry Christmas

    Nice gifts!
    I got a Keurig coffee machine and a Pandora bracelet with 2 charms: an opal (October's stone - our anniversary, when we got engaged and when we are getting married) and a dolphin (I've always wanted to swim with dolphins, it's even on my "board" and I'll get the chance to do it when we go to Puerto vallarta for our wedding!).
    I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

    Merry Christmas, ladies!!!

    So, FI and I said we were not getting Christmas OR bday gifts for each other (our bdays are 1/4 and 1/13) b/c we're going to Key West for our planning trip next month and we need a new dining table and coffe table and end tables - all of those were going to be our Christmas/Bday gifts.

    I actually stuck by that and got him NADA, and my sweet FI surprised me last night w/ the cutest pink Michael Kors flip flops!  They're SOOOO cute!  I kinda feel like a jack-ass - it would normally be me that gets something for him when we agreed on no gifts, which is why he did that haha!  Go figure!  Luckily he has a bday on 1/4 so I can make up for it! :)

    Glad to hear you all had a great Christmas!

    We are going on vacation in January so that was our present to each other. I did just buy him a Star Wars desk calendar for work. It was 50% off so it was like $7! Good deal!

    We decided to do a combined Christmas present of a new mattress ! Ours was a hand-me-down and we were in need of a new one. He did give me a few things under the tree...yoga pants, scarf, purse.

    Thanks girly!  I think I've decided this is one of my all time favorites out of all the pics...

    I know I'm late to the party, but even though FI and I agreed on no gifts since we have a wedding in 6 months (EEEEEEEK!!!!)  he still go me something....

    he got me a beautiful ring...  although it looks like it could be diamonds, it's not...they are swarovski crystals. 



     I've been eyeing it for a while but he had no idea! I really want a pave diamond band for my right hand, but they are pretty pricey, so this one is perfect! I was surprised.....

    I got FI a DVD and some Chicago Bears pj's with one of our Epics framed in a nice silver frame for his desk at work :)

    FI and I went overboard for Christmas.  My big presents were a blue diamond ring, Coach purse, Ugg boots and a set of top of the line Henkle knives.  He also got me a giant Om-nom from the game Cut the Rope which I carry around like a 2 year old.  I will post a picture of that when FI sends it too me.  :)

    We are also on a very limited budget right now and trying to save money, so we didn't go crazy this year like we have in the past.  Fi got me a new scale (our old one was anywhere from 7.3-10 pounds off and has been driving me crazy since I'm trying to get in shape) and perfume.  They were the perfect gifts :)

    I love that ring Cathy!!

    Sounds like some fun stuff!  I'd love to on vacation right now, lol.

    Our birthday's are so close to Christmas that we usually have a combined limit.  So for my birthday I got a box set of Harry Potter movies, lol.  For Christmas I  got a Kindle Fire from my parents so FI got me a case for it and he gave me a massager, some CD's, and some brown leggings I've really been wanting.  He got spoiled this year and my whole family and I pitched in and got him a new laptop which he REALLY needed.

    Hi Everyone,  sounds like you all had wonderful Christmas's.  I love the blue diamond ring!
    My FI has a thing about making all my dreams come true so for Christmas he is crossing one more thing off the list and is taking me on a Caribbean cruise in January 2013.  We have no more vacation time in 2012.  I love this man so much!

    Since our wedding is early 2013, we'll wait until next year's holidays to do the "save on gifts" thing, but this year, he got me an initials ring (it's a silver twisted band with a silver heart that has our initial engraved), pearl drop earrings, some DVDs I wanted, and new perfume. =) I was a very happy girl.

    This was one of my messages that disappeared yesterday so I will try again!

    Sounds like everyone got some nice gifts!  The rings are beautiful!

    My FI has been working on making all my dreams come true.  This year he checked another item off the list and has given me a Caribbean cruise for January 2013.  We already have all our 2012 vacation booked with the wedding and such.

    This man is the sweetest guy I have ever met in my live and I can't wait to be his MRS!
