Non-Seahawks Christmas Swag

  • So the thread in the main forum has pretty much every present covered for most of us here, but I thought I'd see if there were any interesting/cool/amazing Christmas presents that weren't Seahawks related.

    I got very few things non-Seahawks related, but thought I'd share one of the presents the missus received. I framed a couple of cool bullfight posters we found in Spain years ago, and hung them on the dining room wall. The kitchen is very much Spanish-inspired, and so they complement it nicely. Plus they remind her of the four glorious years we spent living there.

    Anyone else get/give anything cool?

  • The wife knows you can never go wrong giving power tools. She got me a new Porter/Cable 18v cordless drill/driver and circular saw set. Combined with the Sherm #25 jersey the kids gave me, I was as giddy as my 6 year old that morning. Spent the afternoon repairing boards on the back deck with my new tools wearing my jersey. Happy, happy dad.

  • Got a new Nook with the built-in light. Love it. Oh, and a dremel. Daddy's needed a dremel for a looooong time.

  • 8-bottle wine cooler. The electric kind, with separate temperature controls for each level, (it's a vertical 2X2X2X2 stack) and I love it already, because I like drinking good wines. Also a premium webcam (Logitech C920) since the one I've been using with my mom and such is one built into a 7-year-old monitor, and works horribly. $50 Amazon gift card, and a nice new Crock-Pot to replace the crappy old one I had. (I'm a decent chef in the kitchen, if I do say so myself.)

    A very good haul. My family knows me well.
