    About 300 dollars worth of movies.

    I really have zero practical sense as far as gift giving goes, but somehow I know EXACTLY what movies people are going to enjoy the most.

    Though I will admit, I gave one of my friends a copy of Sharknado and a 5 movie megapack of other films by The Asylum. So that was fun.

    So much. Between my kids, Mrs. V2, the in laws, coworkers, Colin, and the local Giving Tree, we gave a lot.

    I use this time of year to update my mom in the ways of tech. Needless to say I spent a bunch on a chrome book and a router. Also some sneakers. The rest of the family gets shirts, DVDs, and cologne/perfume. The gf gets some music gear.

    My immediate family is just my mom and I. So I spoil her every year. For the rest of my family they just wanted to do stockings this year because everyone was tight on cash. So I just bought a bunch of stocking stuffers stuff for everyone.

    Also got liquor for my best friend and purfume and tickets for the Evil Dead musical for the gf. It's awkward buying purfume.

    I misspelled it once and it saved in my autocorrect. It will never let me forget.

    Autocorrect, quietly cataloging your mistakes and fetishes to throw them in when you least expect/want it.

    -From my friends as one big group present from them, they got me an iPad Mini 2 with retina display! :D My name is even engraved on the back of it. I nearly cried. :')
