I didn't get a lot this year as I spent a small fortune on my Lions sojourn. Got a billy basic 30w Marshall amp and a pair of Rayban aviators though.

The best Xmas bragging threads are the food/drink threads although presents might allow for it.

I enjoy the:

“Keeping it simple for breakfast. Scrambled quails eggs, beluga caviar and a Penfolds Grange Hermitage 1951 to drink”

We opened the Bollinger at 10.45 and finished it by 11.00.

Luckily, there's more.

Bah Hum(ble)brag!

I didn't get much myself this year, I find it much more rewarding to be able to provide gifts for others less fortunate than myself. That's the greatest gift.

Now THAT's how you humblebrag. 8)

I have a new addition to my list of weird, WTF? Christmas presents received: a massage sponge soap from 'fragrant finds'.

Socks would have been fine, tbh.

Some new clothes, and a couple of excellent books. Mrs jdogscoop and I have a gift limit of around a couple hundred bucks given that whatever we want we just buy for ourselves.

I read Matt Lucas' book Little Me in one sitting last night which was a good effort, I thought.

Okay, that's enough Low Countries-bashing - none of you are Dutch enough to understand.

All of you just keep blabbing on about your new Christmas socks.
