    How many have finished?, Haven't started?, isn't even going to participate this year?

    I have got mine done and out of the way. I know the world is supposed to end but oh well. I did it anyway. Love the Christmas time I do.

    My wife does all the shopping! She even buys something for herself, wraps it, and tags it as it's from me :)

    Sent out the cards to my family this morning.
    Just bought gifts for my folks, that's it. I'm not one to really jump on the Christmas shopping bandwagon and the wife and I don't exchange gifts. We need to save for a house! :)
    I prefer to enjoy family and friends' company rather than worry about their gifts.

    Wife and I bought new S3's for each other, and cases for them. That's all we're getting. We just had a baby (she's 4 months old now), so most of the Christmas stuff is for her. We have everything we need, and she is such a blessing, it's incredible.

    I was going to do some Christmas shopping today, but I ended up sitting here stabbing at my temples with a rusty ice pick. It was more fun. :rolleyes:

    I make a lot of stuff. I'll hit the stores next week. Since I know what I want, won't be hard.

    I'm already receiving early Christmas presents. Yet I haven't went Christmas shopping myself. Later this week or weekend is when I plan on doing the shopping.

    I haven't done a darn thing yet. The wife does all the shopping for kids and grandones. All I have to do is get her something. Do you think another ironing board will suffice?

    As long as it's a nice one ... encrusted with diamonds ... and you give it to her on the beach in Hawaii, you should be fine. ;)

    Oh, and a solid gold iron would be a mandatory accessory. ;)

    Maybe you guys can help me. My sisters and I can't decide what to give dad for Christmas. It's getting harder to shop for him every year. Last year we got him an iPhone 4s. I suggested a car dock but don't know any good ones. Plus my sis said it was cheesy lol

    I guess it's too late to give him grandchildren :eek:

    Does he like tech? Tools? Sports? Is he a beer and chips kinda fellow? Chardonnay and smoked salmon? Single Malt and cigars?

    One of the best gifts I've ever received was from my mother-in-law (for my birtdhay, but a gift is a gift). She gave me some grape vines! I had grapes for years.

    Funny you should say that. He told us before that he'd give a very substantial amount of money to the first one who'd give him grandkids. Unfortunately, he confirmed that we need to be married first lol

    He likes a little bit of everything. A gps system entered my mind but he doesn't need it. He has a very sharp mind.

    Well, I'm taken, but I'm sure we could dig up an eligible bachelor for you. ;)

    Does he like toys? A remote control helicopter is something that could be fun.

    Lol:D
    No, I don't think he'd appreciate it. He'd just call it junk and that's that lol. Hmm. We were thinking of maybe some phone accessories instead.
