They say Christmas should be about the joy of giving, so what did you give that gave you more joy than what you got from receiving a gift?

I gave my parents an iPad because they've been so good to me.
DP's 40th birthday was a few days before Christmas so I bought him an iPad for that and some Riedel glasses, lindt chocolates and a new video game for Christmas.
Needless to say, I am pretty broke now, but seeing their faces was so worth it!

I made my mum and step dad a homemade chocolate treat gift basket- chocolate salami, truffles, hazelnut spread (a bit like nutella but homemade) and some alcohol. Oh and as a joke gift a thermomix brush, she was using mine to clean my neices bottles and said it was really strong and she wanted one.
We got my neices books (colouring and reading) new pencils, a hungry hippo game, a necklace and bracelet each. My baby neice got a fisher price roll along snail thing and some clothes.
There the only people we celebrated with this year which was nice, I usually force myself to go to a huge family gathering and end up regretting it.

Of all the things I gave that gave me the most joy..the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book for DS! He has the rest of them and was so excited by it I was so touched by his excitement I forgave him for waking me so early

So this year, for the first time I filled one for her. Cost me about $200 all up and she loved every little thing. Made me feel awesome.

I gave away a lot of good things this year. I think my BIL liked his Red Bubble Space Lego tshirt best though.

I bought DH a solid silver letter opener. Sounds boring but he's stoked with it. Hopefully it will become an heirloom. Now to find him the perfect desk for his new office.
I also bought him a signed copy of Terry Jones' Evil Machines which was a project through Unbound.
