Fantasy is my #1; I will give almost anything a chance if it has strong fantasy elements. Post apocalyptic, superhero, alternate history, science fantasy, some supernatural, romance, and a few fandoms (especially Game of Thrones) are also likely to catch my eye.
I've seen one of these threads pop up every year on forums I use, and this year I decided to be the nerd who starts it. It's a bit on the early side for this question for most folks in the US, but Europe exists so here we go.

What stuff did you get for Christmas or Hanukkah or your choice of gift-giving winter holiday? What's your favorite thing of the lot?

I only got one thing for Christmas this year, and that's these babies:

They're fucking rad as hell and I couldn't be happier.

First book of the Foundation series, Earth Defense Force 2 for my Vita, Gypsy Danger figure, some candy, and a bunch of little knick knacks from my wife. Haven't seen what I got from family though.

And since I'm an adult and most family sends me money, I spent it on books!

@Hatsune Candy
You got Axent Wear! That is so cool. I absolutely adore the artist who designed those.

I shall post what I got later.

I got the greatest gift of all: a full day shift at work while it's -25 Celsius out.

I did get a tea infuser thermos that is super lovely, 4 hours later and that shit is still too hot to drink.

I will be doing my gift giving and getting after work.

...assuming I don't freeze to death first.

Thanks! Almost done, and I am thankfully almost done with the outdoor stuff. It's damn cold.
You should definitely get yourself a Coffee or Hot Chocolate after that outdoor stuff finishes.

I hopped on Steam and had some gifts from people I didn't expect. That was nice.

My estranged half brother sent me the usual gift card.

Aunt is bringing me to see a "the science behind Pixar" thing. Which is super awesome, because I daydream about making games and animating and coding.

A friend sent me some earrings (her good intentions and thoughts make me smile)

Another friend gave me a super cool mug with a Tetris pattern that when you fill it with hot water, expands so it looks like its actively playing Tetris.

And I still have a couple more from friends to come! Honestly the best part is seeing their reaction to your own. Can't wait for that.

Well I'm pretty sure my Christmas present part is over (For now anyway XP)

I got 20 dollars
A scratch ticket with the winnings of!!!!!!!!!! 3 dollars.

I got
Front mission evolved
Lara Croft and the temple of Osiris
Bro-Force
Blade Kitten
Shadow Warrior

My friend might be getting me an Australian mini gun in team fortress 2 (An overpriced virtual item. A reskin of the stock item that's over 100 dollars)
And am getting some training weapons too from him :D

And I also got a Kershaw pocket knife. Pretty cool.
Also watched True romance. Why a chick flick? Because it was written by Quentin Tarantino. Yeah, and I assure you that the movie has what makes him popular as a writer ^^

I almost got RWBY playing cards, but they were sold out at their online store -_- And my friends cousin (Also friend XD) Got movie tickets so we're probably gonna watch force awakens with them in the near(ish) future.


Now I just need a Christmas miracle and hope that Nintendo announced Metroid prime trilogy HD/Metroid prime 4 :D :D :D

I got the Ghost in the Shell game from @Rainjay (completely unexpected, made my day!)

From my parents, I got a pre-release copy of The Worlds of Android (the only, and best, fake history book for a fictional world I will ever need) and a BB-8 bobble head. Best astromech ever.
