I've got NOTHING so far

Planning on ordering:
Zach a t-shirt that says "I'd prefer not to"

I also wanted to order him a mug and a key chain from etsy, and I stupid didn't and now they're gone. I might get us bracelets that say "I love you" and "I know".

I'm usually really good at Christmas shopping but this year I don't know what the heck to get anyone!

I bought a shadowbox for my mom at a garage sale about a month ago. I also bought her a pair of earrings she said she liked while we were picking out earrings for my grandma.
I bought two pairs of earrings for grandma, plus two new dishtowels and a washrag set.
I bought a 69 Camaro shirt for my dad (who owned two 69 Camaros back in the day.
And a Batman snuggie for my BIL. It's hilarious.

that's it so far. I'm either going to order stuff for other folks or I just haven't found it in a store yet.

Bought my girls new laptops this afternoon. My son some work boots. 1 daughter a camera and I ordered dad a new router and table set. I think that's all the on-line shopping I have to do this Christmas. I do a lot of in store shopping at Kohls, most times I get 30% off there. I don't have a lot of people to buy for so I don't get stressed at Christmas.

I've bought ONE christmas gift thus far, and I still don't even know who we're giving it to. I think it's part of a gift for Matt's mom... we'll see.

I found that one completely on a spur of the moment purchase about a month ago. I haven't done any other thing for Christmas at all.

I bought tickets to see Jeff Dunham (<3) for when Mommy and Grammy come visit me the week after Christmas.

For MIL: Amethyst necklace from Amazon super clearance a couple months ago for like $6. And also a book.
For DH: Weeds seasons on Blue Ray for $10/each at walmart. Ravens pajama pants for free with Kohls cash. Half priced tools from sears' fall clearance yesterday (hooray for shovels and brooms and rakes!)
For dad: Rhubarb jam from Amish-land when we visited over the summer. Rubiks cube puzzle thing that was on super clearance for like $2 a while ago.
For sister: A book...and I need to track down something more.
For Grammy: Moose placemats from Amish-land
For cousin: I paid his college application costs

I need something small for my mom and sister, something for FIL, and for my brother in law and his girlfriend (probably just a restaurant gift card). My in-laws are in the midst of trying to sell their house and move several states away, so I'm trying to find something they'll be able to use that won't take up space.

I should probably make my mom a necklace to go with the earrings I gave her for her birthday, lol.

I tried to order two pair of jeans and I think I didn't know how to do the code or something because some how I missed on the cyber monday sale price. I flunk on line ordering.

Hmmm... Let's see...

For my grandparents I got a handpainted wooden plate at artsfest for their kitchen (they have a chicken theme and it has a rooster)

For mom, a bone-shaped stone with a photo of Cleo (her late std poodle) in it for the garden, and probably a Mary Kay foot care kit

For dad, so far just a 'we love our joe' (as in joepa) coffee cup, and I think the boytoy & I are going to take him to DC for a day trip of brunch at the blue duck & museums.

My brother wants CDs

Got my friend a beagle print (he beagles )

So far I've gotten the boytoy new nipple rings, but already gave him those lol so any ideas are appreciated...

The ex-foster dogs got a stuffy each

Rage & Liz got Ella's lead tag collars in Xmas colors & red dingo tags to go on them, and Rage got some stuffed toys wearing Santa hats . Daisy will probably get food.

The Plotts:
UKC GRCH 'PR' Hannas Creek Liz
GRCH FCH CCH CA 'PR' Jebb's Bayou Rage
OFA Hips: Good, Eyes: Normal
2010 & 2015 UKC Coonhound World Show Qualified

Midnight Brindle Bombshell - "Pink"
UKC GRCH CCH 'PR' Skyplott Teddy Bearhug (5/2004 - 3/2014)

And the "off-colored" hounds:
'PR' Dead River K-N-A Swagger (English coonhound)
Daisy Duke Garrett CGC, RA & my <3 dog. Forever "The Favorite", 5/25/2000 - 2/9/2015 (basset)
