What Did You Get For Everybody?

For me, most of the presents fun is the giving part. Especially when it's not something they asked for (not always easy).

So spill--who's getting what?

My favorite gift so far is the book I got for my fellow editor at the office, "The Devil's Dictionary" by Ambrose Bierce.

Between me and SIL, HH is getting all three of the first Harry Potter books on audio CD (he has the later ones-now he will have a full set).

Got my nephews a pack from Tarjay that comes complete with all the makings for s'mores.

Got mom and dad some frou-frou crackers from Wms. Sonoma, along with some really nice appy plates with French sayings all over them, along with a CD of their fave jazz artists doing Christmas songs.

Wish I could say I'm done but here's what I've got so far:

-Youngest Boy = One of those big remote control batman cars. I still need to get a Thomas The Train Railroad Track, a batman figurine for inside the car and a few small toys and a few more stocking stuffers.

-Middle Boy = Yippee!!! He's all done except for stocking stuffers. He shocked me this year because all he wanted was clothes. Every year prior he'd say, "I don't want any clothes". Well now that he's in High School thats all changed. I saved the receipts though to be safe but I think he's going to really like what I picked out.

-Oldest Boy = Portable DVD player with all the gadgets (case, cord, etc...). Some DVD cases he uses all the time. I still need to pick him up a few more small things and a few more stocking stuffers.

-DH = Nothing! Only because he's always with me when I shop.

-Oldest Nephew = McDonalds Gift Card and a Movie Theater Gift Card

-Youngest Niece = nothing yet

-Youngest Nephew = nothing yet

-Oldest Boys Girlfriend = Cute/Funny Character Key Chain. I still have to get her something else. Maybe jewelry or a really cute pink purse and scarf.

My brothers and I don't exchange gifts now that we're older.

I can't say what I got DW because she might see it on here, but for my mom I got her the Indian Curry 8 pack gift set from Penzys. For my FIL we will be getting him a weather radio. He loves keeping up with the weather and since he is retiring at the end of this year he will be doing a lot of fishing when the weather gets nicer and the radio could come in handy. My brother will get the iPod alarm clock that he wanted. For the rest of the people I have no idea yet.
