I just started thinking about it today.

I think I'd like a Wii personally, they seem to have some neat stuff.

As for others, I still haven't decided. My fiancee and I are getting married in early January, so probably something "sentimental" she can display and be all girly about.
For the folks, maybe some good books.

How about all of you?

I don't care what I get, I have told no one what I want this Christmas (normally I say what I want)

Here's what I'm giving:
Mom - Infrared Sauna (We sell them at work, I got a good deal .. family is chipping in as well)
Dad - Ram and some  computer accessories
Brother - A Mario cart slot car set he loved when he saw like a month ago, and some small things
Girlfriend - I'm sure if I put them here they may be stumbled upon before XMas so I'm holding hers off
Girlfriend's Dad - Premium scotch he loves

I only have two things on my list right now; CSI Season 7 and Idiot Box on DVD.  I'll probably add more later but those are the only two things I've thought of so far.

Parents - various Time Team episodes; a British archeology show
Sister - a Who's Line is it Anyway DVD
Brother - not sure... (I just remembered he's got a Wii so I'll probably get him something for that)
Obituary: A detective story I wrote

Lol...part of my x-mas shopping is also too my birthday!  :fogetlaugh:

Hummm...so far I've bought a couple of clothes, 4 shirts, 2 pair of jeans, new runners...I've lost like 51 pounds, so I figured I need to get rid of my fat clothes! (although there is still lots of work to do...)

Oh...I'm 6'1 and 246 now.  :fogetsmile:

I have about $1560 in my account, with a mastercard limit of $3000...

I'm buying myself a MP3 player this Friday, I have like NOTHING to listen to on the way to work. (which is a 45 min walking fest)

...And I'm stuck on everything else...

Lol, I'm happy with most of the stuff I have now...

...as for my parents, hummm...I chipped in on the new fridge and stove we bought...I hardly see my mom, maybe something sports wise? My brother has been a stealing lying jerk for the past two years...he's probably not getting anything. (Anybody who owes people $21,000 in debt, and has sold countless things...deserves nothing...)

but, for what I am getting people...

mom- she wants some expensive perfume set
dad- probably just a bunch of DVD's (about 10 or so)
girlfriend- she really wants sky diving lessons, so I am getting her those and like some small stuff.

I havent really thought that much about it yet but I do have some ideas:

Mum: Digital Photoframe
Dad: No idea
Brother: http://www.thinkgeek.../blankets/979e/
Sisters:No Ideas
Niece: Am chipping in for a swing set
Friends: http://www.thinkgeek...oys/plush/6708/ (More specifically, my oldest and dearest friend is getting Ebola, my ex is getting The Clap and most of my other friends are getting various STDs)

Myself: http://www.thinkgeek...fice/mugs/986a/, maybe some dvds, the best present would be a majority of my friends not moving  away (which they are planning to do soon  :fogetcry:)

I've told people this year that all I want for Christmas is to go to a movie theatre and see a movie. That's it. However, there is a Star Trek game coming out for the Wii that I'm sure someone will get me (because I'm a Trekkie). I'm usually done with Christmas shopping by now but this year I haven't had the time to do it. I barely have the time to grocery shop.

Mum, Dad and assorted siblings still living at home: I got the house a Wii.
Mother-in-law: Gift certificates to the day spa in town so she can get a massage or a facial or something she wants
Father-in-law: Anyone got any good ideas? 'Cause I'm drawing blanks.
Sister-in-law: I'm still debating. She wants a cell phone which is a definite NO. She also wants some new iPod but she got an iPod last year so... there are a few other things on the list but the biggest thing she's asking for is money to shop with. Maybe a prepaid Visa or something. She's also asked for Guitar Hero for the 360. Teenaged girls are impossible to shop for...
Brothers-in-law: Every year I get them a fancy shirt and tie and put Autumn's name on the tag so I'll do that this year. Otherwise I'm not sure what I'm going to do.
Daughter: !(@%)#@[email protected]$)!#(* she's even harder to shop for than my sister-in-law. She's mostly grown out of the fall and winter clothes I bought for her in August so she'll need more clothes. As for toys, man she has EVERYTHING. I'm thinking about either a Leappad book thing and/or a dollhouse.

I'm seriously considering getting my inlaws a Wii as a house gift. I loaned my sister-in-law my Wii back in the middle of September and I didn't get it back until the beginning of November because my mother-in-law was having too much fun with it.

Last year I bought a bottle of champange and we all did a toast at my husband's stone so I think we'll do that again this year.
Check it out! I'm doing NaNoWriMo this year!

I'm buying one nephew a Gamecube, the other two nephews some games, my nieces will all probably get dolls or some other girly things that 5 year old girls play with.  I'll probably buy my brother some Yankees memorabilia, and my youngest sister some games for her DS.

The things on my wishlist are rather expensive, so I think I'll probably get giftcards, which is fine by me.

What I'm doing for Christmas is instead of buying people presents, I'll take my family and close friends out for dinner and pay the bill, letting them and encouraging them to get whatever they want on the menu. I went to Charlie Browns steakhouse last year for this, I think this year I'll go to a brick oven pizzeria. I haven't decided.

I want to start getting better grades so I can have a chance at med school :(

I wish I had lots of money so I could buy a Digital SLR camera. Right now, I'm tryin to find a good deal on a Canon SX100IS. It's the best I can get for my money without dealing out $800 or more for a camera + lenses.

This year I am going to try to make/do something more personal for my girflriend's Christmas present. Something UNIQUE or unusual. Not jewelry or chocolates or teddy bears or bath and body lotion sets............... I can't think of anything good right now

I will probably buy some sort of educational toy for my little sister (she is 8).

I will get something thoughtful for my mom like a certificate for a free massage or something.

My dad is really hard to shop for. Every single gift I've gotten him has had to do with the New England Patriots or shotglasses...... I need to start getting creative.

I want a new acoustic guitar...and some new pickups for my electric guitar[specifically a seymour duncan SH-5 for the bridge and maybe a duncan jazz for the bridge, havnt really decided yet].
Maybe a new ESP electric guitar. Im using an LTD[which is like a budget version of ESP] right now, so an ESP would be nice.
Cant think of much more, maybe a new camera. Like, high quality professional camera.
