Christmas haul 2018: Best, worst, and most pointless presents - who got what?

For reasons I can't be arsed to go into, I got fuckall this year.

Help me to enjoy the experience of festive acquisition, by proxy, by regailing me with your tales of Yuletide goodies. Also, I'm nosy. :santa:
 
Enough in the way of fine whiskies to last the year (which is a Good Thing), a bottle of Pol Roger courtesy of the Spectator subscription from Mrs WB (which is edging toward my middle parts now), and the Boy's old 'Fitbit' (he gets a new one) which will go into the drawer until I feel that I need it. And a piece of Falkland Islands mudstone, which I'd asked for from Santa, who made a special trip South for it.
 
Of all feckin' things, I "gratefully accepted" a bottle of Southern Comfort (the common fake) distilled in France and total shit-in-a-bottle that's never seen Memphis.
It even says on the rear label " None Genuine but Mine" FFS.:mad:
Don't even drink whisky.
Be careful when you (if you) buy this stuff.
It'll come in handy for sauces.

I got a big bag of Celebration chocolates. Nice.
 
My present to myself was a new (to me) car and an early present last month was an acoustic guitar which I will now have to learn to play.

Best the diamond sharpening stick I asked for. next best the waitrose own blend scotch I asked for. Worst the minime bought me a JD hipflask and a miniature. Thats going in the back of the cupboard for the week before payday when I feel a Fijian coming on!
Some other sh1t I suppose.
 
I got a petrol chainsaw. :)

Hope you didn't have the internal combustion version of 'batteries not included'? I'd want to be straight out into the back garden as soon as the last of the wrapping came off!

More socks than the b****t threads (good)

A book about sleep deprivation. Presumably to bore me to sleep when I can't actually sleep.(bad)

Yes that's right. A book telling you how important sleep is given, as a thoughtful present, to someone who does not sleep so well.
