We're only buying for my/ our kids this year.
My older son is getting skateboard stuff
My daughter is getting a microphone as per her request
Not sure about the baby, probably one of those ride on things he can walk behind, the one we have is pink with princesses and SO is not feeling that for his little boy.
My son will get stuff for his car. My SO will get some geeky toy.
Everyone else has to suffer through knitted goods from me. Last year everyone got socks. This year it might be hats.
I have very few people to give to though so it makes it easy.
I love homemade gifts. One year my SOs mom made those fuzzy scarfs...I don't know how to explain them...but I loved mine!
My daughter/fiancee is getting $ to puts toward a flat screen TV. My mom/husband I usually send a foodie gift. My sister same thing. SOs family - dunno - we usually draw names. SO - a IHome alarm clock and probably some clothes he has been checking out in Eddie Bauer.
One good reason to only maintain a small circle of friends is that three out of four murders are committed by people who know the victim. ~George Carlin~
In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~
We're doing it kinda small this year, right now I'm working on a cross stitch thingy for my MIL and DH's grandma...my mom just wants 'any pictures' and i'll probably bake some stuff to send to her, my nephews are getting paint ball guns from Santa, so my sis wants me to buy something that would go with that, and that's about as far as i've gotten.
Probably something for my hubby's car for him ...I think I'll get the windows tinted for him.
Son: puzzles, books, bar-b-q play center thing
Nephew: puzzles, Cowboy/Rodeo figurines, PJs
Neice: Glittery Stuffed Horse, Homemade blanket
Step MIL-Christmas Teapot (collects them)
FIL- Huge Photo of baby in B&W with trees in the background(he collects B&W pics of trees in his office)
That all I have so far.
A closed mind is a wonderful thing to lose.

As most of my family are a waste of space I think I'll buy them one of these each and then they can all hop off into the sunset.

I think I'm getting MIL a digital camera, if I can find one under $100.
Not sure what to get our nephews age 6,(in first grade), and almost 3. Will take any suggestions.
Don't know what to get our nieces, either, they are 12 and 10.
I think I am getting my older daugther one of those taggie pens and book so she will be able to click on the words.
And I am not sure what to get the 2 and 1 year old.
