Thought it might be interesting to see what people buy others for the Holidays. I usually try to make things a theme or at least the presents are related. I don't have many people to buy for. Not to go into too much detail about who got what in my family. I try to keep the prices all even and not over spend. I set the limit for about 25/30 bucks. My family isn't that big on the extravagant gift giving. It's always the personal thoughts that count. Very Happy

Presents:
- A variety of tea and a tea box (organizer)
- The Beatles Live at the BBC vol. 2 and a pair of Ringo drumsticks.
- Target gift card
- Pop vinyl dolls of Jaime Lannister and Tyrion Lannister


How about everybody else?

It depends what they enjoy. Gift baskets aren't a terrible idea but they can get pricey.

Got my girlfriend a necklace and a ring. I'm buying a small bag and putting them at the bottom. Filling it with chocolate with a gift card in the middle and then a card at the top.

Thinking of getting a basket full of bathroom stuff and soaps and towels and lotions for the girls in the family

Not sure for my dad and brother in law though

Got most people calendars. Now for people I am closer to I got them more than calendars like I gave my mother and stepfather a toaster and a set of dishes and my father a wallet and sweater. My sister and her fiancee got a set of dishes and my nephew got a Lego Number set.

We had our familiy xmas gathering last night since my fiancee and I will be spending the holidays in FL with her family.

We gave my parents a night away at a local bed and breakfast.

Gave my sister and brother in law a $100 giftcard to Cheesecake Factory and offered to watch their 2 girls whatever night they decided to go.

My brother wanted these two bean bag chair type things since he just bought a house and has a lot of parties.

My fiancee's grandparents we ordered a wine basket and giving them a bunch of Tastefully Simple stuff since they entertain ALL the time.

Her mom and stepdad we got tickets to Daytona 500 for each of them.

And for her dad, we got him a Keurig since he works a lot of late nights and has become hooked on Starbucks so we figured he may enjoy that.
