Best Christmas Gift for Germaphobes

I've been asked multiple times by family members and friends what my favorite Christmas gift was of 2012.

My answer?

My new Sonicare Essence Power E-series Toothbrush.

A toothbrush?

Ah....if you only knew how OCD I am about my teeth, you'd know this was the most perfect gift my husband could have bought me.

O Sonicare, let me count the ways I love you:

1) You feel like you've just stepped out of the dentist office...every time you brush.

2) It has an ooh-la-la gum massage function....which is just as it sounds. Mah-velous.

3) It feeds my OCD-ness: you brush the prescribed 2 minute period, but it beeps at you every 30 seconds to let you know to focus on a different quadrant of your mouth (up right, up left, down right, down left). I sigh in satisfaction as I know each tooth is getting the right amount of tender, loving care.

4) It holds charge for at least 2 weeks, which is great for traveling.

5) Changing toothbrush heads is extremely easy to wires, batteries, etc.

6) It's actually a politically-correct gift for someone with OCD because everyone needs to have good dental hygiene. (My husband gets a lovely snort each time he tells someone what he got me...and WHY.)

7) I get an equally good snort when I tell people my husband shopped at Costco and got 2 of these brushes for the price of he basically ripped me off by getting himself a gift disguised as a gift to me. Even I have to admit this was great thinking on his part. 

Let's Analyze

What's the BEST Christmas gift you got? Why?
