I got my dad a bunch of USF gear, because every time he goes to USF football or basketball games with me he ends up wearing either St Louis Cardinals or Florida Gators stuff. I also got him tickets to a Harlem Globetrotters performance in Orlando, which I'm pretty excited to see and so is he.

I got my mom some new furniture that she'd been wanting.

I gave my brother a Buddhist-themed chess set I got in Vietnam and some travel books for a trip he has planned next summer.

I got my sister some perfume and a few decorative ornaments I got while in Asia.

The only other person I got a gift for was a longtime girlfriend who is still a good friend of mine; I made her a cheesy photoalbum from a trip we took when she came to visit me in Asia earlier this year.

My wife got:

32GB iPod Touch (technically not a Christmas present)
Some heirloom glitter (which she's been wanting for 6-ish years)
Combination running pants/skirt
Shelves for the basement
a folding table
Some thigh high and knee high socks
a tea container
some hot cocoa
a monthly planner (only to be used until she gets everything into her iPod.)

My mom got a sweater (27 years running!)
Dad got a gift card to Menards because nobody ever knows what to get him.
My goddaughter got an Old Navy giftcard because I'm smart enough to know that I have no idea what a 16 year old girl would like. (Apparently she loves socks as much as my wife, who knew?)

For my sister:
-A Twilight Poster (team Edward)
-A candle
-An electronic waterfall for her apartment

For dad:
-A fireman's prayer frame
-An insulated cooler for golfing

For mom:
-A pink snuggie
-One of my favorite gifts I've given: She's a big fan of 20/20 and we had show correspondent John Quinones here at our school speaking for Diversity Day in October. He had a book coming out, so I bought it for mom. Then I heard he was doing a book signing in the afternoon, so I waited in line for that. When I got to him, I told him what a big fan my mom was of the show and that she'd get a kick out of this. I thought he'd just write a generic message, but he addressed it to her and wrote, "Thanks for being such a big fan of 20/20!" then he signed it. It was pretty cool.

The big winner was my dad, who got a HP laptop notebook computer. My sister and I pitched in together (though I put in the majority of the money) and not a moment too soon; his old computer has been wreaking havoc for the past several months and looks to be on its last legs.

The other presents I got:

-Mom: A wrist watch with matching braclets and a thermos cooler that looks like a purse, since she always likes to bring her own meals to work.

My sister: A voice recorder to use at college and when she mentors. I was going to buy a netbook for her, but getting my dad his gift pushed it out of my budget for now. Going to do my research and see which one to get her for her b-day in march.

My friends: Homemade gift baskets with candy canes, cocoa, choclate cookies, and some little presents like a pocket watch(for one friend who works on the railroad), some pryex products (for his girlfriend, who loves to cook), and acoustic guitar strings among other things.

My co-workers: Boxes of choclate candy (either Russell Stover or Hershey's Pot of Gold) to share among them.

My managers: A bottle of Australian shiraz for each of them. Yes, I am a shameless suck-up. But they're pretty cool people to work for, so why not?

For my mom and stepdad: blu-ray player.

For my dad: James Bond blu-rays.

For my stepmom: bath stuff.

For my girlfriend: good headphones, a couple good knives to fill out her knife block, OK Computer on vinyl, a stocking full of random stuff. Actually my mom and stepdad each got a stocking full of random stuff as well, now that I think about it.

For friends: Future Shop gift cards, Calgary Flames Uno (a bigger hit than you might expect, but you'd have to know the guy), new PostSecret book, ticket to Hawksley Workman, De Blob for Wii, books for their kids, Hornswoggle action figure to be given ironically (and with a gift card taped to it because I am not that big of a jerk) (sometimes)

For relatives: Scrabble Me board game, label maker, cookbook, DVDs (Up; Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog), travel book, fancy cocoa mix

To the wife:
New Jewelry Box
Land's End purple scarf and gloves
Wii Active
University of Louisville Snuggie

To my daughter:
Nintendo DSi (in iCarly pink and w/iCarly game)
Namco museum for DSi
Pink Seahawks jersey and jeans w/pink belt to match
Pink Plaid themed dress
Connect Four
Songe Bob themed Operation game

To my son:
Rocky the Truck Robot
ImagiNext Batcave (Target exclusive w/3 extra figs)
V Smile handheld console
Seahawks sweatshirt
Seahawks shirt
Superman pj's (w/cape!)

The Seahawks gear for the kids was the result of a local Louisville, KY Target apparently getting an incorrect shipment of NFL gear (they probably wanted Colts stuff), so my kids are good on 'Hawks gear for the next few X-Mases as I (correctly) waited around for it all to go on clearance ;-)

I managed to find three Zhoo Zhoo pets online that my daughter was crazy over. Didn't realize how hard to get they were until people started offering me $75 for ONE of them.
She also got a bunch of clothes, an art easel, Super Mario fro Wii, and a lot of other little stuff, including this dinosaur that shoots water out of his mouth.

My fiance' got a handheld trivial pursuit that you can load new questions from online, for our road trips.

I also got her a cereal dispenser that she loved when we saw it at Target, but I talked her out of buying.

And some nice diamond earrings. (lab manufactured, no blood involved.)

My son got season 3 of friends on DVD (He loved Phoebe) som Bakugan toys, Bakugan body wash, a remote control hover craft, three WWE action figures (Punk, Jerricho and HHH), a few movies and a cool superman hoodie.

I bought this http://www.thinkgeek.com/electronics/musical-instruments/aa64/ for Aaron, and a slew of various little things.

I got both my brothers those plunger measuring cups that Alton Brown uses, and various things off their gift lists (my brother Dan had a lot of bacon related things, and my brother Chris was mostly Monty Python).

I bought my Dad Scalzi's Old Man's War series, and two Eddie Izzard comedy CDs and told him when I think of him I think "Action Transvestite" He wasn't quite sure what to make of that... but he'll like them.

Mom got some useful kitchen gadgets (silicone sink strainer, hand crank cheese grater) and a stainless steel water bottle in a pretty pattern.

My friends got mead, flamingo shaped pasta, and adult mad-lib books
