    New mezzanine floor got installed 2 days ago. 33% more floor space. Should make production a bit easier. Last 6 months I haven't seen much of the floor.

    I got some very festive, bright red boxer-briefs that I may, or may not, model on my Geriatric Onlyfans channel.

    I got nothing! And happy about it.

    I think X-mas should be for kids. Adults can buy whatever they want... so odds are whatever gift you get goes in a drawer or bin somewhere never to be used, and all the money you spent on someone else is just doing the same thing.

    corporate gifts are a bit different... We give out wine / wine bottle openers, etc to all our good customers. We got a few gift baskets in return, but thats it.

    Not all adults can buy whatever they want.

    Gift giving, even spontaneous gift giving regardless if it's for a child or for an adult does deliver endorphins that actually have a health benefit. It's a good "high" if you will. Some people wrap it up into a culture aspect(Japanese are big on gift giving throughout the year with their culture), westerners have Xmas.

    While the "high" doesn't come with every gift that one gives everyone (that goes for kids and for adults), I wouldn't so quickly dismiss the good benefits that it can bring as well and just stick with one demographic.

    There is a good "high" though from people that give and for people that receive gifts.

    From what I heard teeth are expensive... sounds like you made out.
    I got one of those last year! They are really loud and have decent sound for how small they are. It connects to my phone and I stream from it and play it in the shop.

    I got the same thing I get every year, as shown in the photo. Sure, I bought it, and then cooked it... but the result is still a gift! And it keeps on giving, as there are still leftovers. Oh, and a travel mug & a bag of Dunkin' coffee. :)

    I got me a ShopSabre router myself! Stupid thing has been installed since December 1, waiting on a 3 phase wet location motor starter to be installed at this point, but it looks nice...

    I got a back massager, that you put on a chair, or the couch. I also got a yoga mat, to go with my Nordic Track cross fit training... No more beach towel for me!

    I got a few new guns. Christmas isn't complete without guns and ammo. The shop got a new printer, screw compressor, and almost finished 2nd location. The bucket truck got some new install tools. The kiddo got a metric **** ton of stuff.

    Got some awesome little stuff that I'd mentioned throughout the year (my husband keeps a running list on his phone of things I say I want!!), but I was probably most excited about the Paint Puck. It's going to make my arting easier. I also got a new-to-me vehicle last Wednesday, but that wasn't a gift. I had to pay for it. hahahahaha
