I thought it might be cool to share the gifts you plan on giving for christmas!

I'm at a loss for what I should get my girlfriend, but I'm hoping this thread can help.

I plan on giving the new Life of Pi book, New Ipod headphones, and a starbucks giftcard/mug.

What are you guys giving to your friends, family, significant other?

:D Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Nothing really. What's the point in buying something for my parents or siblings if it's gonna be paid for by my parents :lol:

I'll probably get my best friend a few things that she likes but technically, that too is a gift from my parents.

No boyfriend atm. I'm sure I'll start the tradition of buying gifts next christmas :P

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

Illegitimi non carborundum.

Never try to teach a pig to sing - it wastes your time and annoys the pig.

I decided to honour the local culture by giving

8 Comic books
7 packs of smokes
6 packs of 24s
5 golden toques
4 pounds of back bacon
3 french toast
2 turtle necks
and a beer in a tree

Much more practical and no dam birds to clean up after or bloody benefits to pay to all that staff. A heck of a breakfast though!

I hope you can give the entire CDC community the epicness of Sock and Pock 3.

As for me, I won't be giving anyone anything for Christmas, because I'm cheap. So I'll just wait till the next day when items are cheap :)

I went to the downtown Winners and they have good deals on stuff. I was quite surprised - perfume sets (men and women), ties, boxed sweater and scarf sets, LOTS OF CHOCOLATE (good price too). Got toys for my niece and nephew from there at good prices.
