Christmas gifts 2012(for others)

So what are you guys getting people for Christmas?

I'm really struggling to think of presents for everyone and hoping this gives me some inspiration

So what are you getting your parents, brothers, sisters, boyfriends, girlfriends this year?

Got my dad some books, my sister some CDs and my mam I'm giving money because she wants a new coat but isn't sure exactly which one, or even what style, so she can find one herself with money from me and my sister.

Nor am I, but it's more of a social convention than anything else. I don't even like Christmas, I always tell people not to get me anything but then they do and I feel bad about not giving anything back

My good friend from back home called me yesterday and said, "hey, you're coming back down for Christmas, right? Well you have to, because there's a present waiting for you"

I've never bought a Christmas present before, and I've never received one, so idk wat do.

I need to get him something, but given that I only get to see him at Christmas time (he's been in the navy for a few years), I'm not sure what to get him.

I feel like alcohol has become an appropriate gift for my siblings. Too bad they won't be around for Christmas.

He and I go back. The most I've spent on someone else's birthday outside of family is like $20 (because I rarely buy presents for people anyway, and I always refuse to accept gifts from people outside of family).

But him and I are bros.

And I don't want to show up with something that isn't presentable. I've been doing Christmas Eve with him and his extended family for like the past three or four years, including the gifts exchange (where I would stand around and watch because I'm not family, but I'm okay with that).

So I wouldn't want him to give me a gift and me give something back that isn't comparable.

But idk what he got for me.

I wanna get him something relevant to his interests, since I know that's what he's gonna do for me. But knowing him, it'll be eccentric in one way or another.

I may get something off of thinkgeek or something.
