    My favorite present is this one:

    I got it from my parents (yeah, I picked it out, but still). And to my delight it works in Linux (SuSE 9.2). Now I can convert all my old VHS tapes to DVD or record HD channels form my cable box. Happy days!

    $533 - Apple iBook
    $75 - Palm Zire 71
    The Return of the King Extended DVD Boxed Set
    A John Deere Tractor tree ornament
    A steering wheel cover
    A compact screwdriver/socket driver set
    A glass eagle statuette
    A vasectomy
    A shirt
    A gift certificate
    A fleece jacket
    Some cologne
    A silvery flashlight/knife keychain combo (love to airport security's reaction to that!)
    A Crash Bandicoot GBA game

    Oh, and a partridge in a pear tree!

    Cheers

    2 pairs of jeans
    2 sweaters
    Money for a pair of shoes (much needed since I wore my beloved old pair completely out)
    An extreme amount of new socks (an insider joke from the in-laws)
    Faithless - No roots
    Super Size Me
    (although I think I'll exchange these two for the extended edition of Return of the King)

    I'm having a delayed Christmas... told my parents I was ditching to Florida for the vast majority of my vacation. So far I've gotten...

    Money
    Candy (some was homemade, gotta love friends with skill and time on their hands)
    Satin Hands set (Mary Kay)
    Spa kit
    Pair of sandals
    Deaf Culture book
    Sixth Sandman Comic

    and I bought myself a little cactus and we're picking up some homemade pumpkin flan soon. Mmm... I might get handed a slightly used MP3 player, since Trickster now has a real nice cd player that actually works in his new car.
