I think I'm most excited when I just get cash.
Morgan wanted a drone and I wanted to get him one so I could play with it but my wife said no.
I'm making adorable little 2" painted clay figures of their animal characters for most of my friends.
Boyfriend is getting that John Cena box and some good wool socks.
Coworkers are getting baked goods because I've been an emotional mess the last two weeks and I feel bad for letting it seep into work.
I have gotten RB4 for satans and I am itching to unpack it and a TV now that I know I'll have time to keep enjoying the ever loving crap out of it.
My favorite gifts for the wife this year are that I'm making a custom Lego display of New Kids on the Block complete with minifigs I'm doing decals on myself (I always try to make one gift each year) and a really neat Pepe Le Pew print I think is from the 60s that I'm framing this weekend.
For my son I'm most excited to give him a Parrot Jumping Drone and a 3doodler pen partially because I want to play with them. The niece is getting one of the black friday n3DSs which I think will be a big surprise.
I'm making various baked goods for my sister and her boyfriend since she said they'd be happy with that
I got Rachel the Fire Emblem Fates drama CD along with the Phoenix Wright jazz/orchestral cover album
And I'm not really expecting anything. Maybe some gift certificates? I bought some new shoes for myself but those aren't really Christmas presents.
a 40 of relatively cheap rum
a shaker with shot measurer
a stir spoon
and a 24x36" Nuka Cola poster like this one, which totally works with the vintage/retro sci-fi theme I have going with my wall art in my apartment; I just gotta get a frame for it
I am pretty excited about this stuff, and am going to invest in some good quality mixing ingredients to start learning how to make better cocktails!

My wife and I each have a pair of new sneakers that are going under the tree as Christmas gifts. We went to a going out of business sale and couldn't justify buying them so close to the holidays unless we considered them part of that budget.
I'm pretty excited for them. I'll be 40 in February and under the tree are my first ever pair of Air Jordans. They are flashier than a tubby old fart should probably wear, but I don't care, teenage me would be super impressed.
And to keep the exciting purchase train rolling, I'm gonna buy another pair of pants for work next!
I got my youngest a voice modulator (which I will regret), some pokemon cards, an appa plush, and a TON of candy.
I got my girlfriend two really great gifts that I won't mention because she knows my forum name and I've been keeping the secret since August!
Two things, really?
A new computer chair that gives good back support and reclines ($200-$300)
And an xbox one elite controller, mainly because it's so much sturdier than a standard controller ($150, though you can get them off eBay for a little cheaper).
That's about it. There are always games I want but I don't really *need* those.
Got my pokemon-loving ex roommate an Evee tea mug. Got my other room.mate a hoodie with an octopus on it.
My work secret Santa got a nice scarf, and I bought my whole team fancy nice Christmas mugs as well.
The only gift I've received so far was a 25 gift certificate to cineplex, which I'll put to good use as soon as I beat this fucking cold.
It already came in and like hell if I was gonna wait on reading it.
For Sier, I went the cute route and got her a Pumpkaboo plush so she has a pumpkin to put out for Halloween. We don't always have enough space for her to carve a pumpkin each year.
She ended up picking out a shirt that says "I'm a little spacey."
Which can be very accurate.
We got @Olorin this adorable Eevee evolution mug.
She managed to find a Figma Ryuko for me. Now I have the Kill la Kill sisters.
For my brother, Sier and I have a Waluigi amiibo for him. He actually really likes him.
My mom, I'm baking a pumpkin pie. For our dad, my brother and I bought him 2 pounds of good, meat market beef jerky.
For the multitudes of nieces and nephews that Sier and I have, we were able to get them a bunch of nerdy things within their interests.
A Minecraft book
A Minecraft plush
A Thomas the Tank Engine Emily train.
A Pokemon Handbook
A Vaporeon Plush
A holiday Barbie.
A Diance plush - This is for one of the youngest nieces and my continued subversion of expected gifts to make another nerd.
And then a 6 month old appropriate picture book.
Granted that's 8 kids, but they scream like 40.
my mother is a big time biker so I got her one with this printed on it(we live in western new york):
I am the best gifter
Mom is getting a bluray player and every peanuts bluray I could get my hands on.
Work buddy got a Paul Dini designed Harley Quinn black and white statue and the Batman: The Animated Series Harley Quinn POP that just dropped.
I'm done buying, nothing received yet.
SteamID: Baroque And Roll
My gifts so far are a car and a year of loans paid off
Thank you parents for knowing how compoud intrest would work on a 23 year old bank account
I got her a new laptop, some enamel pins, Pokemon Moon and about half a ton of candy.
Got my dad a new toolbox, some beer, some nuts, and a Menards gift card
My mom got Yankee Candles
My sister got some good smelling Bath & Body Works stuff and a gift card
My Brother in law got beer
My Secret Satans got.....GIFTS
I have no idea why they wanted to stay in South Carolina, but hey
Dad gets a $25 card to Lowes so he can buy some special lights.
Brother, who is in the Navy and notoriously hard to shop for, gets a $25 card to Dick's Sporting Goods.
Someday I will have a job that lets me buy something other than gift cards but this is not that job.
I've recieved the Avatar: The Last Airbender boxset and Dune from The Hanged Man, The usual cash gift from my estranged father and a little something I got for myself today:
Also featuring some comics I picked up at Half Price Books
Shit was a lot less real in July when I backed the kickstarter for it.
Just pulled the trigger on a wildly overpriced HATCHIMAL for kiddo. 175 bones I'll never get back right there...
I don't understand what the gimmick is
My wife wanted a new computer I really kinda overspecced it.
I7 processor (we do a lot of large file stuff with photoshop), 32 gb of ram, and a gtx 1070
And she got me a new phone - a OnePlus 3T
Oh, and most importantly, shes giving me this mug. They ARE good dogs.
If your kid is bad, you put them into the egg and re-gift them to someone else.
Nah, I got her some earrings, my dad a cell phone, my mom an Amazon prime subscription, and my brother a nice coat.
I was still undecided on what to do, until a few days ago when they posted on facebook about getting back into The West Wing and only having the first two seasons.
So, I quickly ordered them the whole series and have been crossing my fingers they didn't get it themselves...
Other than that it's mostly gifts for the nieces and nephews. My extended family wanted to make it kids-only this year, which is fine with us after all the expenses of recently moving.
One of our regulars at the bar already gave me an Xbone Elite controller because I mentioned I wanted one for my PC. I really do not deserve anything else.
Have bought my new nephew a cuddly toy. Which his parents probably won't let him play with because it is from Africa and therefore does not conform to necessary safety standards, but oh well.
For my mom I only have some CDs she specifically asked for and some CDs she used to own and can't find which I'm sure she will like but I want to try and find some sort of thoughtful centerpiece gift, I'm thinking a nice scarf but I have to make sure nobody else got her one
Same for my sister, I got her pokemon but I gave it to her back when the games came out and I would be lame if I let that count, I also got her some earrings but again I feel like I'm missing a good "main" gift, maybe a board game?
Gotta come up with something for the boyfriend too, last year I got him a little plastic bear figure and then painted suspenders on it but I don't have any new ideas for this year and just painting a different model would be lame as heck
