I got myself a Flir One. She wrapped it and put the box under the tree. She gave up on trying to buy my toys years ago!

Different brand FLIR that has better reviews than a flir. (Bigger screen, higher res.) Wife found it on Amazon lightning deal for a lot cheaper. They sold out super quick. Checked a couple of nucs in the yard with it, and I'm happy. I do a lot of cutouts, so it will come in handy.

Bought my own gift. Needed a higher megapixel camera for my bee work. :) Old D-300 just wasn't making it. Been saving up my credit card points for 20 years or so. Points payed for it. D-810. OMG, the resolution is blowing me away. Fun!
Dude!! Great choice for a camera body. D300 is an excellent pro body camera, but very long in the tooth at this point, so moving up to something more current opens up a lot of capability for you, and not just in pixels. Congratulations!

sliding compound miter saw. I wondered why hubby didn't mind much when I wanted to get it black Friday weekend. On Christmas he told me he planned to get me some tools, but I beat him to it when I said I wanted that for Christmas. Took the guess work out of it for him. win-win :) My Dad looked at me funny last Mother's day when I said it was my chance to get a new tool. So much better than some useless trinket or bling bling that will rarely if ever get worn.

I got a kitchen hand towel with bees on it and I got a TABLE SAW!! Now i can start really making the stuff I need like bottom boards, inner covers, outer covers, double screened board, etc. Already made a bunch of spacers for feeding sugar blocks. I'm stoked!
