    My wife and I are doing Christmas for the kids. I got her a nice anniversary present, which is this weekend, but nothing for Christmas.

    I'm at the extremely boring stage of my life where everything I want either A) I have already because it's cheap, or B) is super expensive and thus can't really put it on a regular xmas gift.

    I think I'm most excited when I just get cash.

    Grayson got an electronic piano and Morgan got a Vtech smart watch for their bigger gifts.

    Morgan wanted a drone and I wanted to get him one so I could play with it but my wife said no. :(

    Got a neat sugar skull designed glass pipe for my dad, still figuring out something for mom.
    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.

    I'll be the first to admit that I overshopped for the wife, son and niece.

    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.

    We got my dad a gift certificate to a photo store, my mom a gift certificate to a spa

    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 friend of mine who came to visit a few weeks back noted my particularly empty liquor cabinet. He said he wanted to make sure I enjoyed my time in the Capital Wasteland, and so he got me:

    a 40 of relatively cheap rum
    a shaker with shot measurer
    a stir spoon
    a muddler
    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!
    (He also got me a dumb, useless plant, because we have a silly friend tradition where when someone gets a new place, everyone going to the housewarming party buys the same useless plant so we can determine who they care about the most based on which one lives the longest. Last time, I got a series of aloe vera plants. This time it was a "parlour palm tree".)

    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.

    Yeah, I've been meaning to get new shoes for a while now, so it was certainly a worthwhile purchase

    And to keep the exciting purchase train rolling, I'm gonna buy another pair of pants for work next!

    I got my eldest $40 in Steam money, some Pokemon cards, a Five Nights at Freddy's (ugh) plush, and a TON of candy.

    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!

    I mean my actual christmas list is like

    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.

    I got my Secret Satan a copy of Dune and a Bad Dragon dildo molded direct from Satan's penis.

    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.

    @Sier got me this: https://store.na.square-enix.com/product/421917/encyclopaedia-eorzea-the-world-of-final-fantasy-xiv-book
    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.

    Girlfriend is getting a pair of the Beats Solo 3s to go along with iPhone 7 she got herself, the entire Harry Potter hardcover collection, and the set of Starbucks ceramic holiday mugs (she loves them).

    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.

    Mom gets a $25 card to Amazon.

    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.

    So far I have given a copy of the Art of Deus Ex to one of my best friends who is in love with those new games and specifically Adam Jensen. A gift to my satanee (with more to come as soon as I get off my ass), and that's about it. I think if not for Satans I wouldn't really have cause to care about Christmas.

    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:

    Totally overshopped this year. Also there are no surprises this year, we each know exactly what we are getting

    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

    *edit

    Oh, and most importantly, shes giving me this mug. They ARE good dogs.

    My parents are notoriously hard to shop for because my dad constantly buys what he wants and my mom doesn't want anything.

    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.

    My family agreed to stop doing presents this year. Which is good, but I keep getting this momentary panic where I think "shit I haven't done any christmas shopping!" before I remember that I don't need to.

    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 dad I'm pretty set, he's getting a robe and a griddle

    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
