Apart from the usual socks, chocolate and short bread biscuits I got
Woolley Hat
Top Gear Annual
Viz Annual
Predator Trilogy on Blu Ray
And this piece of awesomness that I've been wearing since I took it out of the box this morning.

It's the hat not the t-shirt by the way, which is also awesome.

From work this year I got less than usual (probably due to the credit crunch) but got a bottle of white wine, 60 Jaffa Cakes in 6 Cartons and some Elf Underwear with a Elf Hat with a bell on it.

From parents I got some unusual items. Shirts (for work), Underwear, Torch, Washing Up Bowl, Rubber Bath Mat, Toilet Brush and a nice geeky LED watch.

Still waiting to give and recieve some presents from friends I am seeing next week.
