    .....nothing😢. I went to so much trouble for my 4 year old daughter and husband. Bought my husband a deep fryer that he wanted, Mitch dowd boxers, a cheese serving set (he's a foodie!) beer tasting kit and even made him a stocking from Santa with chocolates, car air freshener and bits and pieces in it. Even my unborn daughter got a stocking from Santa..... It kind of broke my heart when my daughter asked why Santa didn't bring mummy anything.... I had a cry in the bathroom! I don't ever get presents and I'm not after anything expensive..... A $2 box of chocolates wrapped up would have meant something.... That someone has thought of me. My sister and partner bought us a bouncer for the baby, so the only thing I got was from mum and dad and that was some really nice lush shower gel..... My only gift for me. My husband is awesome though and hosted Christmas for the family and cooked and put together the toys..... Still a bit upset....35 weeks pregnant and feel like I always go all out for everyone. Would love to get even a tiny gift😢sorry for long rant.

    You deserve a present. I'd be upset too. Rant all you like.

    Your husband didn't get you anything? Are you serious? But he's still awesome because he cooked for other people? That's not awesome. That's selfish and cruel. Hell, yeah I'd be upset. And I wouldn't be dignified about it: I'd be doing something naughty to him with that cheese serving set.

    So my birthday was 5th Dec so I often get combined presents.
    I got a bunch of Westfield vouchers totaling $1150!!!
    Woohoo. I'm in the process of losing weight (12kg down, 12 to go) so they will come in handy for getting new clothes.
    An awesome electric toothbrush, a smelly candle, a coffee mug and some edible treats.
    Best thing for me was that little miss 2 grabbed the concept of Santa and giving and receiving presents. It was so cute!
