Spinoff..

..from the "What Would You Like For Christmas" thread.

What are you getting people for Christmas? Have you started?

I wrapped up presents yesterday. Sad, innit.

I've got some of my Dad's and brother in law's done.

Who've you got to buy for?

I've got:

Dad
Mum
Sister
Brother In Law
Nephew
Bloke - maybe
Bloke's Mam and her boyfriend - maybe.
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    Not before December... It'll jinx it.
    I mean I would jinx it myself, if I started so early. Of course, the instance of seeing something that would be perfect for someone when not searching for a gift is excluded.

    I'm one of them last minute people, well last couple of weeks before christmas anyway.

    I think my boyfriend wants a new coat and some new trainers so i think that's what he is getting and i guess i shall have to think of something else for a surpise maybe.
    Erm my brother i dunno, what do 14 year old lads want nowdays a playstation game?
    Probably buy my mam a nice top or clothes or something and my dad....erk i dont know i got him a lean mean grilling machine for his birthday so maybe some other household appliance :p

    I normally just look around and buy on impulse to be honest.

    My mam
    My dad
    My brother
    Dave

    and erm ... if anyone else buys me anything I shall get them something small. Yes.

    Not a big present buyer for random people. I normally just get something for the people I am really close to, mainly because over the last few years I have been too broke to do otherwise.

    Well, let's see who I should get things for...

    Dad
    Mum
    Bro maybe (he's out of the country and we won't meet anytime soon)
    Aunt
    Cousin
    Grandpa/Grandma (either something for both or seperate things)
    Dad's wife maybe (not sure if I should, I think I probably should)
    Myself (I'm supposed to be Santa, so he'd have forgotten Zal otherwise)

    ...and that's all.

    ETA: And among those, my cousin's will be the gift that's easier to choose...

    Christmas presents? Oh my god, I hate this time of year. Erm... okay, I'm gonna have to write a list now of people to send presents to. Then, there's all those bloody cards to fill in. And to make matters even worse, I've got my birthday following on December 27th, so while I get two sets of presents, I also have to think of more things I want!

    I believe you can't ever be too old for prezzies:) Even if you get money you'll probably end up spending it on rubbish but with a prezzie it's something that you'll keep & be reminded by the person that got it for you.
