IPad minis for the family. One each for my wife and I, and one for my seven year old. Mommy travels a lot for work so FaceTime will be handy. We are all loving them so far.

Jay Mobile says:

Got a iPad 3 64GB wifi edition
iPhone 4S 64GB
And a 15' MacBook Pro all at BestBuy
This was a great Christmas for me thanks to my wife who knows that I am a gadget lover

hashtaghell says:

My wife and I got each other 16GB iPhones. No cases just yet. We didn't account for that while shopping for the children. Hopefully we don't scratch them up before we can afford the cases. Happy Holidays.

Santa brought my wife and I each 16GB iPad Minis and I got a new MacBook Pro 13". We're not gonna be productive for a while. Now I'm even more upset that The Daily is gone through. It was the only decent news app for iPad.

mereiriz says:

This year my lovely husband gave me the new 21.5 iMac! Unfortunately, it was a sad day because a couple hours after setting it up, hubby had an accident and is now in the hospital. Haven't been able to enjoy it yet and feel kind of guilty :(

BlackBerry Guy says:

No iOS device here, but did manage to score an Apple TV :)

ipadluvr says:

Got my wife an iPad mini in black. She has arthritis, so the lighter weight and smaller form factor are an upgrade from her existing iPad 3, which goes to family. So much easier to carry around and hold.

Tristenpierce3 says:

I got a black 64 gig iPad mini! Wifi only but still available on the go with the new hotspot set up on the iPhone!

wamadden4 says:

I got a nice new iPhone 5 in white. 16GB. I got iTunes Match and Spotify so size is not an issue for me. For the people who got a 4S, why? LOL

LunarFlame17 says:

I got a black 64 GB wifi iPad mini. Actually, I've had it for a month, but it was technically a Christmas present, so I'm gonna mention it. I also must say that I hope Apple releases a 128 GB iPad next year. I've got so many games, I can't even fit them all in 64 GB.

richard_rsp says:

My wife and I both got 16gb iPhone 5's to replace our aging 4's... She got white and I picked a black one. LOVING the phones and Siri!

Only really different accessory this time was a Zagg HD Screen protector. So far, so good!
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

dmt316 says:

i gave my wife a 64GB white iPhone 5

cwbcpa says:

I got the iPhone 4S for my wife and 15 year old daughter. Neither one wanted the iPhone 5. It's the first iPhone for my daughter so she was very excited. She is also loving her Lifeproof case. She took it out with her to play in the snow with some kids in the neighborhood and it was nice to not worry. She got some good pictures too. As for me, I will probably get the iPhone 5 next week when I have another upgrade available. I like to have the latest, they don't care as much I guess.

chitoac#IM says:

GStrecker says:

Hey Georgia,
I got the new iPad Mini 32 gig black wifi/AT&T cellular for Christmas. I'm considering it an upgrade from my 1st gen. iPad. I was an early adopter of the original 3G iPad and was able to swap my AT&T unlimited plan to the new device. We'll be keeping the original at home for wifi only use for the family while I start using the new lighter device for work. I got a Roocase hard case for it and a lightning to 32 pin adaptor so I can continue to use my old camera kit and other components with the new Mini. The weight differences between the to devices are very noticeable and I enjoy now having cameras in the device. Now I can read my emails while my 3-year-old grandson monopolizes the iPad 1 watching YouTube videos. Hope the iMore Team had a Merry Christmas and wishing you all a Happy New Year.

williamsbh76 says:

EPJS says:

I got a bunch of movies on Blu-ray, because that's all I really wanted. Though I did get the new 5th generation iPod touch for my birthday in November. Does that count?

jayman30 says:

Got a black, AT&T iPhone 5--loving it, best iPhone yet!

Vandie82 says:

I didn't get anything cool iPads for Christmas. I checked under the tree for anything that resembled an ipad box. Closest i got was a what'll heard trimmer. So today I said screw it and went down and got my a white ipad 4 white 16 gig. I am kind of regretting going only 16. I may go bAck tomorrow and get a 32. I had to have iPhone 5 when it first came out so I am good in the department. Damn I just live anything apple. Wish there was a way to share the memory between the two devices.

doitlarge says:

Got my lady friend a White 32GB LTE iPad Mini on Verizon, her first Apple mobile device ever. To my surprise I open up a Black 64GB LTE iPad Mini on Verizon. Stoked!

SerFer01 says:

Thanks to you guys, this is my second iPad mini. I received the black & slate 32GB early December, and now I just won another one, which I'm giving to my mother. It's white & silver 16GB, really nice. So now we have a Yin and Yang combo...LOL!!! These iPad minis are pretty amazing and super compact. Way easier to handle than iPad. I recommend and give them 10 thumbs up!!! Apple & iMore ROCKS!!!

Xytal says:

32GB iPad Mini, Black... though I had to take it back as it had 2 dead pixels. The Apple Store here didn't have any replacements, so they gave me a gift card and now I'm just waiting for them to get more in stock. =( At least I still have my 4S and 3rd Gen iPad!

BMX_Dre21 says:

I got a 16 GB Black Wifi iPad mini!!! Just got a Griffin Survivor case for it last night at Best Buy too, LOVIN IT LOVIN IT LOVIN IT!!!

No, however, I did get some incredible socks :)

Gabe Zimbric says:

For Christmas I asked for an iPad 3, iPod 5, and an Apple TV. Unfortunately, I didn't get any of these devices. So I'm stuck with my slow 8gig iPod 4

Warren Ward says:

We've gotten the kids Apple gadgets for the last three years. Iphones and Tablets were great the first two years but they weren't that impressed last year. This year they told us they want something different for Christmas the X-Box One. I think Apple and other gadgets are getting stale and boring they wanting something different now.
