Since Ian already knows anyway, I'll share what I'm getting him. He's getting a GoPro as his main gift. I have some ideas for smaller gifts/stocking stuffers, but I can't share them on here incase he decides to sneak a peek at this thread

We're also going on vacation that week, so that counts as a present from us to us

My mom is getting a Dooney and Bourke purse she told me she wanted.

Not sure about my sister yet.

I'll probably get my dad a video game (he likes RPGs) and some long sleeved shirts.

Luckily for me, I only have to shop for my immediate family

L to R: Chloe, Rylie, Emma, Tucker, and Rory

I got my boyfriend a great pocket-notebook. It's metal, and when you take the pen out it opens automatically. He'll love it.

I don't know what I'm getting anyone else.

Hubby's family probably gift baskets because we're so lazy and never know what to get them! I liked it better when we picked an adult and kid and per person and just bought for them. Oh well.

For my kids, too much to list...

For hubby, no idea. I don't even think either of us want anything.

For the kid I 'adopted' for Christmas, I got Hello Kitty stuff (a watch, some bracelet crafting stuff, squinquies or whatever they are called, a plush and an art kit) and a magic set.

I did shopping for my kids in need, but none for any one I know personally

The boy (12) got a football, stickers of those black lines under the eyes, a 20 Qs orb

The girl (11) got a baby alive doll and mp3 player and socks.

I still have no idea what to get my family, if I have the energy I'm going to make my mom a christmas pyramid.

Marc is getting LED strips that change color, because he's wanted them for a while and I always said no. Thats his main presant, other than that he'll be getting a season of "Game of thrones", a Capo and some smaller stocking stuffers.

My mom is getting some Pyrex stuff because she asked for them, and a cookbook from Jamie Oliver.

My dad? NO IDEA.

The grandparents and aunts/uncles are getting some handmade stuff.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

For my 88 year old Mom
One box of thin lemon waffers with zest (to go with her green tea) and a box of thin sugar waffers with dark chocolate one one side. One large chocolate bar with toffee and sea salt, one bottle of Blackberry Brandy. Two bags of hershey kisses dark chocolate and the cherry cordial A couple packets of Hot Chocolate and that is all I have fit in it so far. I will probably add some good truffles. Found the neat basket at the thrift store. It was the perfect size and I know will please her. SHe is the only adult I am getting a present for, the rest are grandchildren and I am making 99 precent of that. I did find a photo frame for my grandson's 2 yr old play buddy and included three pics of their 2 men and a truck photos for him, and will paint a turtle rock since I am his adopted Nana and that is what he calls me, once a Nana, always the Nana. I love him like one of my own.

Go Petie Go Go Who Go!

love comes in many directions with mary

Side by side on the sofa sat three annoyed dogs and one smug cat
and then in came a little white kitten,

Everyone is getting (giving) a llama or share of a llama through

In addition, Mom, mom-in-law, and grandmother-in-law are getting earrings, because they will be sad if they don't get tangible gifts. Sister is getting a hoodie. Everyone else is getting a llama. Or perhaps a flock of ducks. Or a water buffalo! So many good options.

Seriously though, this year it hit me that spending money on people who have more than enough money to buy themselves everything they need (and most of what they want) is ridiculous. I'd much rather send that same money to where it's needed.
