All who know me and meet me are unbelievably blessed.

I'm the fucking presents master. I got my niece and nephew po-go balls, some books, beanies, and some other trinkets. Got my oldest brother a Sandisk Sansa already loaded with 14 books I know he'll love, and the game Beat the Parents for him and his young'ens. Got my dad a Makita Lithium Ion 18v impact drill set. Got my other brother a S.O.G. Flash II and a Justice Liberty Coin (which I feel stupid about). Mom's getting a Kindle Fire. My girls - oh, it'll be ridiculous. My wife? Last year I spent $200 on her stocking alone (including a $15 jar of the best mustard on Earth), so lord knows what I'll end up getting her this year. My in-laws love that I do the shopping - got my wife's nephew a set of trick cards and how-to dvd, got brother-in-law a set of gymnastic rings and a krav maga book, sister-in-law gets leopard pajamas, and crock-pots go to mother and grandmother-in-law. I love, love buying gifts. And I'm fucking good at it. I know it's not the point of Christmas but I can't help myself.

What do I want for Christmas? ...............All that money back.

As a Jew I find I appreciate almost any Christmas gift.

You know between Easter and Christmas you guys really get the best holidays. Celebrating the Birth, Death and Resurrection of your lord with chocolate and gifts is just brilliant!

Sounds FAMILIAR.... only with us it's the whole family. Our Christmas tree sits on top of a mountain of presents. My mum usually plans to implement Secret Santa at some point during the year so that everybody gives one and receives one present but when it's time to decide whether Secret Santa or Battle of Presents - well, Secret Santa usually packs up pretty quickly and the battle is on.

Nothing quite like a Chocolate Jesus to pick you up.

Wow. I love getting presents for people, especially the stuff they really really like but comes as a complete surprise.

So disorganised this year - I've had no time at all, and I still have no idea what to get for Mrs T. It's her birthday on 4th January too, so I usually just get a pile of stuff and then sort which she gets for Christmas and what she gets for her birthday.

Really stumped this year though. She doesn't want anything I've hinted at so far. She has bags, clothes, fragrances, phone, kindle, jewelry, shoes...
and I've only got a couple of non-work days to get to shops before christmas. Or I'm going to have to go nuts on the internet trying to find something original. Anything!

I got into the bad habit of taking my parents and brother on a shopping spree for christmas. We hit the mall and I get everybody items they like and vice versa. On christmas we just share cards and cook up a storm, enjoying whatever gifts we received prior to the day.

I do this for my wife and in-laws aswell. My wife is really difficult to buy for. I often try one surprise gift, often cheapish, and one wanted gift that kicks my pockets to the curb. The reason my family does this is to kinda focus the day for church activities and stuff like that.

This christmas I bought my families shoes. They all seemed to one them which is really bizarre. Might get my brother a PS3 game though and my mom and wife will get some bonus jewellry, probably some dresses to match the shoes.

I usually make everyone something selfcrafted, mostly from paper. Apart from my brother, he always gets a book. Sadly, this year I have yet to have a practicable idee for both.

Christmas gifts are a no-no in my family (us Dutchies have a gift giving day on the 5th of december instead, also long since cancelled), but my girlfriend seems hell bent on giving me Red Country for christmas. In return, I'll probably get her a blender, a sauté pan and/or a boardgame, 2 of which she has made pretty plain that she'd like to acquire.
