    The Christmas Presents Thread!

    December is upon us (crept up too quick if you ask me!) so it's time to sort out the presents (no doubt some of you have it sorted already!)

    So...

    How many people do you have to buy for?
    Me: 12

    How many have you got already?
    Me: 1

    What have you got so far?!
    Me: Mario Kart Wii for my brother!

    What are you going to get for:
    Mum?
    Dad?
    Brother?
    Sister?
    Aunt?
    Uncle?
    Nephew?
    Niece?

    All I've thought of is Shaun White snowboarding for my nephew so far! - bit lame!

    Last of all, what do YOU want for Christmas?! (clean answers only eh!)

    That's a blinder of a deal greyparrot.

    I contemplated Guitar Hero on Wii a few months back when Amazon had it for 40 quid I think it was, I waited a few hours too long and missed out on it

    Banned

    24 got most of them,need about 4 more, my sister has finished.

    I've just about got all of mine now, all wrapped .. just waiting for a few to be delivered ... haven't bought any munchies yet though.
    Still got last years Christmas Pudding in the cupboard :w00t:

    25 to buy for

    so far, done most of the oldies (over 50's). Decided not buying any smellies or other useless stuff this year, all practical

    sister (52), scholl nail care set from Amazon £25. Will save her a fortune at the chiropodist.

    Brother (60) electric heat pad from morphy richards £15 incl delivery. Very handy for anone with joint aches at this time of year. Does wonders for my chronic back problem, no messy hotwaterbottles.

    Long story but 8gb new generation Ipods for kids x3. They can swap them for other types of player if they don't like these, I really don't have a clue. £82 each from marshall ward. Make up, perfumes, after shave and they are done.

    Wooden bookstand for hubby. He is doing a course and uses books by the computer, keeps losing his page. This wooden gizzmo stand the book up so you can quote directly, sort of like a document holder for books. Paid about £12 for it but cannot remember where from.

    All thanks to HUKD

    I have 40 people to buy for ! Don't all get together xmas day - that would be ridiculous ! Got most of them, another 10 to get, but I know what I'm getting. Got all the presents to wrap yet - 40 people equals around 100 presents to get through !!

    What have you got for the oldies then? - My parents and aunt/uncle are all over 65

    That heat pad sounds wicked - might get myself one! (I'm only 25 though lol)

    They are handy to have. Good when you have a cold or man flu, snuggled up on setee with a fleece. Have bought some for bdays through the year and was worried might be offended but were delighted because so practical.

    Have treated myself to a magimix food processor (xmas and bday money together) £195. I love cooking and have always wanted one. Just like men with their gadjets I suppose. BUT I would have been upset if anybody had bought me a kitchen item as a present. Funny old world!

    11 people to buy for,two of them are my youngest kids though, so pricey.
    6 of us at crimbo dinner, that's enough for me!
    father-in-law getting guiness gift set and a rare book we managed to find on amazon from america.
    mother-in-law smellies and daniel o'donnel dvd:oops:

    Our poor old dog used to hate christmas dinner because that mean crackers going off! Wonder how the pup will react...

    Mum - :? thee hardest to buy for
    Bro - xbox game, dvd
    Dad - chelsea shirt and book
    Sis - havent a clue
    Gf Bro - Wii Game
    Gf Sis - havent a clue

    Thankfully I have been saving up all my amazon vouchers from the surveys sites which have helped fund it. Feel sorry for all you people having to buy for kids and loads of other people too :gift:

    She's indeed a pup cbryanp - 4 months old, however, she doesn't seem bothered by noise really - she was fine on bonfire night for example.

    My dad's just said he saw an electric screwdriver in B&Q reduced to 25 quid or so - his old one doesn't hold a charge for very long... ill try and get that ASAP before he tells anyone else!

    Got 40 + to buy for, have got most things sorted, thanks to deals posted here mainly. Only got about 12 here for dinner at Christmas this year so its gonna be quite quiet compared to previous years.

    40, blimey, some of you have a huge task!

    I thought 12 was bad enough - most of my mates have about 4-5 people to buy for!
