Did Your Partner Give You Any Awesome Christmas Gifts This Year?

There’s a reason Paul calls himself “GayComicGeek” on The YouTube. It’s also explains why he’s thrilled his boyfriend Steve got him these toys — like the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Megazord — and why it made a lovely Christmas for Paul, who not-so-lovingly refers to his own family, who disowned him, as “rednecks.” Not that he’s bitter. But he has us wondering: What did your significant others, or friends, or family get you this holiday season that made it perfect?

Or, because there’s always this possibility: What were you hoping for, and let your partner know you wanted, that didn’t appear in Santa’s sack?

(And what did you get your significant other?)

    I got my partner a new desktop computer as my laptop (that he has claimed) has finally started its descent into electronic death. And he got me a Roomba so I don’t have to clean up after our overly-sheddy dog so often.

    So around ~$1,000 later we’ve decided next year we’re putting a price cap on personal gifts, and buying something for the house with the excess.

  • Marc

    He gave me a new Nikon D3000 camera.
    I absolutely LOVE it!
    (Yes, I”m a beginner)

  • Philip

    We gave each other a new netbook and for our 20th anniv., and we each got an embarrassingly large diamond ring!!!

    Sometimes it ain’t half bad being old!

    My hubby and I have enjoyed 24 Christmases together; some pretty darn fab, some pretty darn lean. Gone skiing in Vail, spent a week at Claridges in London, and, if you can, wow, Christmas at the Four Seasons Hualalai on the Big Island! Then there were a few Christmases and we were broke, literally, not including rent, had $200 for the entire month; I made chocolate truffles. They were yummy and we remember that as a really good Christmas.

    This year, he got us a puppy! She’s adorable, as most puppies are, but she is truly great to have. We lost our lab/shepherd almost 2 years ago, so we were ready for a new one. My previous two dogs, as is the new one, have all been rescues, the first one was 3-4 and our lab/shepherd was 1 when rescued. Our new one, Brooklyn, is just 5 months so we are having all sorts of new experiences. Certainly Brooklyn is going on the Best of the Best Present list! She’s a keeper; so is my hubby!

    He bought me a ladder and I bought him an air compressor. We’re redoing a victorian home.

    HAHA! I had to re-read it like a million times to understand what you meant. Skanky. Those were boring gifts, but mine were worse, well, not soo much. :D

  • Bob

    Well, we just celebrated our 37th Christmas together and I love him more and more every year we are together. Yes to all you hot young guys we are old (57 and 61) but we still feel like kids. We exchanged a lot of clothes and a few other things and then when I went up to the bedroom, there was my new flat screen TV. How he managed to hide it from me is unbelievable! But, the best Christmas gift will be when we can finally be married. We hope we live to see that day! Happy Holidays to all our Gay brothers and sisters!

  • Steven

    I got nothing but mediocrity, recrimination and crabs from my BF.
    I am desparate and overweight so I have to say: “I love him more each day!” I love bein’ gay!

  • Manny

    My wonderful fiance got me a wonderful beagle mix puppy for xmas! He was a rescue from our local pound. We are sooo grateful for him.

    I got him Kathy Griffin’s memoir

    we are both enjoying our awesome gifts. :D

    I found out that my boyfriend planned a romantic getaway to San Francisco the week of the holiday. Too bad that romantic getaway wasn’t with me.

    That said, my good, dear, lovely best friend showed me a fabulous weekend and made this Christmas one of my best yet. Why he can’t be my boyfriend, I don’t know, but after such a great weekend, I truly wish he was. He brought a smile to my face and that’s the gift I’ll remember most – and the only gift I needed.

    Hey Maggot Gallagher: (am farily certain she browses these
    Gay sites) read these posts??? We ARE family!!

  • Jason

    We agreed to a price limit this year, so I got the hubs the new season of the Tudors and some music. He got me an Oakley laptop bag in clear violation of our agreement. Now I have to pull something amazing out of my ass for Valentine’s day. What a jerk…

  • Pariah

    He got me a handmixer, a set of awesome bakeware that is perfect, and a camera. I got him a laptop, as he is ever the intrepid one with the internet. We’ve been cyber-harassed before so he is careful, but expect a rogue Queer cop posting to teh gay blogs soon. There will not, I repeat, will NOT be any personal pics on teh interwebz, lessons having been learned. Maybe some garden blogging? Partners garden compliments my cooking, so maybe I’ll be doing that with the camera. Fun fun.

    MY girl got me a t-shirt with “TIGER” written on it, her nick name for me since before we started dating, and under the hem of the shirt, she has written a secret message for me in sharpie and white out. “You’re my [TIGER] because you’re pretty [t]ough, you’re a little [i]nsane, you’re just [g]orgeous, you’re very [e]motional, &these things let you be the [r]ight one for me”, some Marzipan chocolates and “just add water snow” (I’m from Canada and miss the snow)

    I’m spending a year in Germany, and we meet here (through Tegan and Sara fan-site and then spent our first month anniversary at their concert in Köln)

    I got her a snow tiger plush – her Canadian Tiger (yes we are that cheesy) with a note saying his nose is loaded with kisses for her when she misses me (Long distance relationship) and a mixed CD – she had never received one before – with each song explained as to why it reminded me of her.
