Lets see here,
A Magellan eXplorist GPS (I can finally go geocaching without borrowing a GPS from my brother in law)
Bose in-ear headphones for my iPod
the traditional clothes
subscriptions to Airways, Airliners, and a renewal of my AOPA membership
a couple of DVDs
and a few other things

But the best gift was from a friend of mine: he was able to track down a control yoke from a 707. It now sits on my bookshelf next to my collection aircraft models.

- A T-Shirt from my grandparents that has a weird design that I don't like at all
- A Liverpool FC football jersey
- A T-Shirt with the classic Adidas logo on it

Sadly, "Santa" did not bring me an FC St. Pauli jersey, and that trip to and job in Germany that I want so desperately.
