Today I saw another Lexus commercial where the dad gives the mom a new Lexus with a bow on top. Has anyone ever had that given to them? Just curious...

This year, the DH got a Breitling Hercules, and I got the Brentwood LV Vernis in Amarante...

No car...haha...I got a 1,500 dollar laptop last year from mom and dad....does that count?

Though in a couple Christmases I will get a Chanel shopping spree and an Hermes. That will definitely be the most expensive holiday ever! (post-deployment $$$$)

Most expensive gift I have given was when the 1st 60 gig ipod came out...

Last Christmas we were sitting around the tree at my parent's home and there was a huge box for me. I opened it thinking it was a new Chanel bag or something but among the tons of tissue paper there was a BMW car key. I expected my parents to give me my dad's 1.5 year old BMW X5 but they bought me a brand new one :biggrin: They hid it in the garage that is connected with the guest house and there was a big red bow on it. They filled the trunk with tiny balloons..it was really cute :biggrin: I started crying!!

Oh, memories... :angel:

Most expensive gifts received would have to be various jewelry pieces. Most recently, Mikimoto pearls two years ago, and last year, Anthony Nak large sapphire chandelier earrings. I wear those all the time. When I was in highschool (a very, very long time ago), my dad gave me black pearl earrings, which I still have and wear. That is probably up there for expensive gifts.

Most expensive gift given - I bought my parents a large painting for christmas this year. It was a few thousand dollars, and that is the most expensive gift I've given (although perhaps weekend away last New Year's to my BF was equally as expensive... I'm not sure).

If I were to receive a car as a gift (which it seems a few of you ladies have received) - I would want a mercedes (with a bow, of course) LOL :smile:

This year the single most expensive gift I'm probably going to give is the PS3 80gb for my DH. (He doesn't know -- I told him we should wait until we get a new TV to get the system.)

Generally DH and I don't spend much on gifts for each other (:crybaby:) but I'm hoping the dollar amounts will keep rising as we get older and more financially well off.
