    A switch! I did very well this year. I'm just not used to Nintendo game prices after being a PC gamer since forever.

    £10, but spending time with family at Christmas was enough for me to be happy anyway.

    If I really want anything, I'll just buy it myself.

    Re: QOTW: What did you get for Christmas?

    Gifts I got:
    A load of locks with no keys (my wife's present was "wrapped" in mine.... it was chained and padlocked - the idiot had to pick his way into it so his wife could have her present).
    Whisky. Beer. More beer.
    Twelve crows in Christmas hats and scarves.... that was interesting to see staring at you from the front room window.
    A box of chocolates with a note in Chinese in the bottom saying "please help, I'm trapped working in a chocolate factory, tell the world".

    Gifts I gave:
    An alligator claw on a telescopic stick with a magnet in it for screw retrieval.
    A Christmas Crow modified with wheels, a motor and remote control. The Ultimate Fighting Crowbot.
    A log splitter.
    An electric blanket wired up to Alexa so it can be prewarmed from downstairs. I'm sick of warming the bed for the wife, now Alexa can do it.

    Re: QOTW: What did you get for Christmas?

    Not much, got a coat with a busted zip, 2 pairs of slippers, a Witcher wallet and some gift vouchers for a comedy night out. Better than nothing

    The usual, shirt, jeans, socks and a fleece. All ok I suppose, it's the thought that counts, I know. The best Christmas present of all, a Gigabyte AORUS 1TB M.2 PCIe 4.0 x4 NVMe SSD/Solid State Drive, which I bought myself, sub-£180.00 brand new, a proper bargain!

    That, pretty much, except the £10 bit.
