Most of my family live out of town, so I picked up gift cards for everyone.

For my Mom, I put a gift basket together, including some German sauces I found at a local European deli that she can't find where she lives.

For my best friend, I bought a sushi serving set.

For my fiancee, I bought her a diamond ring, a desk calendar, and Avatar on blu-ray.

    Let's just say she was pleased.

Did you get the pussy yet?

The wife and I already did ours. I got her the newest Dr.Who season, Inception, Philosophy of Final Fantasy book, Hailstorm CD and a watch. The rest of the family is getting DVDs, clothes and books. Nephew is getting Superhero squad Thor 2 Pack, matchboxes cars and a Looney Tunes DVD. Too many friends of kids' as well as friends shoot my budget up to $500. I did get my friend the newest Smallville season for $10 off of Amazon that was the best deal I made this year.

I bought my son a bunch of dress shirts, a book on dealing with bullies and improving his self esteem, a few boxes of gobstgoppers, and a Albert Pujols jersey.

Gave my daughter cash/gift cards so she could spend it how she sees fit.

Got my wife one of those Kurig (spelling?) single cup coffee makers, and a framed photo of us from our wedding reception.

It's a lean year this year, so I couldn't get what I wanted, so I just got the things everybody would want the most, or at least I hope so.

It was my first Christmas with my girlfriend. She's very practical and not into expensive jewelry and such. I got her a stethoscope, CD player for her kitchen, a gift card to the local food co-op, some humor books, a fleece sweatshirt and lip balm. I gave one niece the original Star Wars DVD box set, which she was very excited for.

My son turned 2 this year, so it was the first Christmas where he kinda sorta got the Santa thing. Santa hooked him up with a giant play kitchen.

We also gave him the Charlie Brown holiday special collection, some Mickey Mouse dinnerware, Disney puzzles, kickass Spidey PJs (, and a set of cars from Cars 2.

Wife and I agreed not to get anything for each other, to make sure everyone else was covered. (Though she did sneak me the shirt from the Whadjaget thread.)

My parents each got a different Doctor Who DVD set, depending on where they were in their viewing.

Her mom got early Bee Gees collections and clothes.

Ended up having to do mostly gift cards for everyone else, with a few cool shirts and things thrown in.

For my wife: I'm taking care of three night school classes she needs to complete an HR certificate she's been working toward. That said, I'm cheaping out on Christmas. My wife will always be priority #1 for me.

I did give her a Mickey Mouse bead for her Pandora bracelet on the side. It matches the Tinkerbell and Minnie Mouse charms I picked up earlier this year.

Cashed in some airline miles to get both kiddos iPod Touches.

They both got some old Seahawk jerseys I had purchased at a local Target on clearance a few years ago (Not sure why a Louisville, KY Target got in a case of kids Seahawks gear, but I am eternally grateful).

Got my wife some UofL running gear and commissioned my step brother to do a pencil sketch of her mother to go along with the ones he's done of my dad and mom the past few years.

For all the Packer fans 'round these parts: My son got a #18 Randall Cobb jersey and a Packers hoodie from my step dad, a Cubs/Packers mini cornhole set from my Dad/Stepmom, a cheesehead from Santa and a Packers case for his iPod Touch.

My wife and I gave each other a 3 week trip to India earlier this month. We arrived home on Monday afternoon, slept for over 12 hours, and had a quiet, relaxing day at home for Christmas. This is the first time we've something like this for the holidays, but I think it may become a recurring thing.

I sent out or handed Christmas cards to like a dozen people, marking the first year I actually had a Christmas card list.

My sister got Despicable Me and Short Circuit 2 on DVD. (Hey, don't look at me: She requested Short Circuit 2).

My dad got a $20 Amazon gift card.
