For my girlfriend of a couple months I bought a gift box of a fantastic whisky I recently discovered called Forty Creek:

Came with a couple rocks glasses as well. If anyone is shopping for someone who enjoys their whisky or really any cocktail this stuff is GREAT. I was never much of a Jack or Jim fan but this really can't be beat, not a bad price for drinkability and flavor. If nothing else, go get some for yourself!

What did you guys get for your girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife/best-friend-you-can't-live-without? Or do you have something you got your kids you can't wait for them to open?

My hubby got three hard cases for his V-strom and a center stand.
I got a super-duper high tech sewing machine.

(We don't really give Christmas presents, but if we buy something for ourselves or each other at this time of year, we call it Christmas presents.

I got myself (& the family) a nice generator for those times when the ridiculously outdated extension cords on wooden poles are downed and we lose power. I also shopped for non-wifi electronics, but had to learn the hard way about promised shipping dates. Kmart lies on their site about shipping times to get you to buy from them, so now we have to wait for those gifts to come after Xmas.

Man, talk about practical. I can think of about 100 reasons a generator is a good idea

I got my wife a fancy vacuum cleaner with all the bells & whistles....... Just kidding!


I got her a portable Blu-Ray/DVD/CD burner-player (USB powered) so she can watch DVDs anywhere on her netbook and maybe learn to burn Blu-Ray at some point.
Also Direct-TV to get off the rip-off cable system. She has been glued to the Harry Potter marathon all day. Oh well....

For the second year in a row now, we decided not to exchange gifts.. So much easier. The only people I buy gifts for now are the parents. No kids so Christmas is way less commercialized. I dont put up decorations or a tree. It's not about that anyway..

Im kinda seeing a very moderate (drinks, parties etc etc) Muslim so she gets nothing LOL
My thinking is it would be rude to impose my religious beliefs on her,to be fair Im not actually religious just being cheap.
Told her she can come to Xmas lunch for Turkey and ham though

Geeez she's a lucky woman


Humans have been giving gifts to each other since time immemorial, regardless of whether there are corporations or not this custom will continue. I think its good we take a break from fighting each other to give gifts and sit down a share a meal together. You don't have to purchase anything from a corporation, some of the best gifts are things you make yourself. Corporations are always going to be on the lookout for a way to make a buck, it's in their nature, but don't let them make you bitter and ruin this charitable holiday, just don't give them that power over you.

Not sure if this counts, but I got my mother the complete Edgar Allen Poe collection, because she loves Edgar Allen Poe. I don't exactly have a significant other, save the one that gave birth to me.

Haha I brought up gifts and whisky and you go off on overpopulation and Chinese plastic?

Personally I've had a problem with Christmas since I worked a few years in a row at a Target store in high school. So this year I bought one gift for one person. And it was from Canada and not China

Was it a big black book? I got a similar collection a while back at a B&N, great gift idea

It was a plain, huge, book. It had "Edgar Allen Poe" on the cover with a raven standing on a skull. It only cost me about $5 or so, so I sort of had to buy it for her.

My fiancee is the only person I really got something for but he won't get it for a week or two. It's being made, by moi



He wanted a Boxer dog calendar because he has one, awesome dog too! So since I love to do photo editing and use a really cool site PIcaboo to make my own albums and such I am making him one of his dog. It will be a 2013 calendar though, his request. I had to tell him what I was doing lol

I'll take various pics of his dog and then create the calendar myself. I will add birthdays, anniversaries and such that way he can't say "I forgot." Hehehe


He will also be getting the new Star Wars game sometime this week, hopefully he doesn't read this and see it!

He sent me something but not sure what lol He said it will be here Wednesday..
