Soooooo.....

Christmas season is upon us once again. Thanksgiving is in the rearview mirror and we lool forward to that festive day of family and gift-giving. Soon many of you will be trying to figure out what kind of presents to give your friends and family. But there's always at least one person on your list you just can't figure out. Of course you'll ask The Pit for help. Where else would a UGer go with their problems?

Rather than have a ton of individual threads, let's just have one thread.
That will save a ton of clutter and make it easier on everyone.

Guidelines:
The gift idea can be for anyone in your life.
Parent, sibling, child, spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend ... anyone.
But not yourself, of course.

Gifts are personal. If you want good gift ideas, tell us who the person is in relation to you. And tell us a little about the things they like. This will help narrow down the ideas into just ones that might be useful for you.

Quote the post of the person you're replying to, so they know you're responding to them. If it's a lengthy question post, feel free to edit out most of the quote and just leave the gist of it. This will take up less space on the thread.

Be sure to scan the thread for ideas.
You might find a great idea already on the thread.

No one wants to be a dog this time of year.
By sharing ideas, you won't have to be the guy who gives a crappy present.

Get yourself a nose. Then you can pick it as often as you like.

What do I get my girlfriend for xmas?

I'm spending the holidays at her family in Canada.

We'll have been together for 8 months then and so far I've only bought her a cute mug.
I've never bought anything for a girl, what do I get?

You need to give more information, The defaults are jewellery and/or perfume.
How much are you willing to send? What kind of thing is your girlfriend interested in?

Well I'm already paying about 700€ to just see her for Xmas so I'm trying to keep things small.
I guess she'd want something cute and lovely I guess, not really something that she can use, just something to hold on to.

Have you considered making something? The best gift I ever got for Christmas was a chess board that my girlfriend made me. Makes it much more personal.

#22
What do you lot think about less tangible presents, so instead of some jewellery or a watch or whatever, your girlfriend got you tickets to a show or something like that?

I've been with my boyfriend for almost a year, and I know he's going to spend quite a bit of money on me this Christmas. He's super romantic and has a great imagination for gifts, but I'm kind of the opposite.

We both love the theatre and musicals etc and we live in London, so I was thinking of taking him to see his favourite show at the end of December, and for a meal afterwards. I could even save money on lastminute.com and book a nice hotel for the night.

But I'm not sure if he'd like something from me that he can look at all the time, rather than a nice memory with me. What do you guys think - which would you prefer?

cute is always good. a mug is functional. she'll prolly use it and think about you. you don't have much budget, so keep it simple. maybe something with no functionality at all? like a stuffed animal for in her room or smth.

don't put too much thought into "rather". just make a plan and go with it. what you're suggesting sounds ace. you probably should add something tangible into the mix, though. something very inexpensive.

you didn't really tell much about her other than her age. no clothes, no jewlery. what's left in a 14 y/o girl's areas of interest? music, maybe. buy her some discs or posters of her favorite artists?

*stuff*

Dunno if the guy in mind here is anything like me, but I would always go for tickets, especially if it's for something I
a) didn't know about
b) couldn't afford on my own
c) really, really don't want to miss
d) any combination.

And, if you're hung up on something tangible, perhaps some kind of memorabilia from the trip?

Your idea sounds really great, and a little souvenir would really top it off. Perhaps a mug related to whatever you end up seeing?

Should I get a guy I'm kind of seeing at the moment a present for christmas?
He's 3 years older than me, will be a medical officer in the RN in 2 years time. Sort of guy who actually goes to bed early because he has to be up at 6am to go to his placement at the hospital, whereas I'm still at the stage where I'm a fresher who will and can party til the early hours and act like a nutter because I'm only 18.
He likes stuff like port/whiskey/brandy, paté, chocolate, shooting (game birds)

It sounds like a great idea. Programs make for good mementos. This kind of thing makes for a far better gift than tangible gifts that are often either a) impersonal (like a watch or perfume) or b) not what the person wanted. He will appreciate that you went to the effort to make a nice day for him, and if he's super romantic sounds like he'll enjoy it even more. And keep in mind that every guy's ideal day begins with waking up to a blowjob
O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

kinda depends on how long you've been seeing him and what level you're at.

if it's just an occasional date, maybe no gift or keep it simple/inexpensive.

I don't know what to get my boyfriend for christmas... By the time it rolls around we'll either have been together for a month or two years and a month, whichever way you look at it. (we were broken up for quite some time in between.) I don't want it to be something small like you would buy for someone that you've only been dating a month, and it IS our third christmas together, but, I'm a waitress so... I don't have very much money. I'm driving out to see him on the twenty-ninth as well. Any ideas?

I need to find my brother (21 y.o.) something for Christmas. He's an engineer, shares my love for Russian literature, and likes music that I'm not all that into. He made it clear that he doesn't want any books because he has way too much to read as it is, and my mom already got him the one album I know he wants Now I don't have any ideas left.
