We didn't have much money to buy gifts, but I like what I got. James got me 3 bottles of Jordache "knock-off" colognes (their version of Tommy Girl, Anais Anais, and Cool Water). He got me a retractable dog leash with a built in radio and flashlight. He also got me seasons one and two of "Chuck." Also a mini flashlight for my purse, a flashlight thing to wear on my head (I can become a coal miner now! LOL) and a set of tweezers for jewelry making. My best friend and her husband gave me a pretty "God's Heart" bracelet (picture below). Their 6-year-old daughter gave me 3 cute pairs of Christmas earrings. Santa brought a huge jar of Nutella.

One of our funniest gifts (yet still practical!) was a jar of "T.O.E. Jam." It is made from Tangerines, Oranges, and Elderberries.

I guess I won't be getting those soon even though I love them.

I'd guess you can find just a serving set for one for a reasonable price.
