    I am finished except for hubby. We're both doing something very small for each other and not buying anything for ourselves. We're far from our families so our gifts are for...

    A foster child - pink sweater, hello kitty purse with hello kitty makeup bag, little nail polish & lip gloss. I'm most excited about this gift. She's a very sweet, intelligent child. Her mother is in rehab and her father lives out of state. We also feel that the foster mother (our friend's mother) is often mean/abrasive towards her. So we're excited to give her something.

    Our friends' daughters (20 months and 10 yrs) - gifts cards for both to Children's place. The parents are struggling financially so we figured that would help.

    Mother of the girls above - mall gift card (she never really gets anything for herself)

    Friend's baby - a little dress & tights. This is the only child not in need, but it's more of a thank you to our friends for being good friends.

    Oh yes...and gonna wire some money to meh grandma.

    That's it!

    aww those are thoughtful gifts dollbaby...

    and seems like everybody has decided to not break the bank this year...

    my friends and i are having a gift exchange not to exceed a particular amount so i got them a variety of things suited to their interest that everybody will use... nothing to sit on the shelf.. - cookbooks, sweaters, scarves, pocketbooks, bath sets etc etc.. plus things like bottles of mixes - rum punch, punch a creme etc etc made by yours truly

    have to get my parents something today...

    my sister got jewelry and clothes...

    my brother will be getting some tech stuff

    for myself, well i got same shit as for my friends.. just more of it.. a wifi connection and will be getting the ps3


    i have no expectations as for the gifts i will recieve... just preparing to be suprised..

    all the gifts are for my daughter ; she only really wanted expensive basketball shoes and money to do shopping after Christmas but I got her some stocking stuffers as well as Pink Friday Perfume set, jewelry, Ciate Caviar nailpoish set and those damn ugly Doc Martens everyone wearing

    --- what's on your christmas list (as in what do YOU want)??

    Nice watch and some gold bangles...maybe after the holidays I will splurge on myself


    --- What have you bought yourself for christmas??

    nada

    ---what do you hope doesn't make it into your gift pile (and what you may regift if you receive it... like all those gifts you not really into)????

    I appreciate anything someone gives me not really looking for gifts

    ---do you give anything for charity? if so to which ones.. if not usually, would you do so this year, whether it's by donating toys to a pediatric ward in a hospital, or childrens home or visiting the elderly in a nursing home..

    Christmas baskets with my church that include donated coats and new hat/glove/scarf sets and toys

    Also scarf/glove sets for some elderly clients of my Dads that don't have family

    I donated to the United Way Campaign, but that's about it.
    My daughter pretty much got what she asked Santa, even though I threatened her yesterday that I was sending him an urgent naughty list message. She got Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Team Umizumi software to go with her Innotab, Clawdeen from Monster High Ghouls Rule, 3 movies (Brave, Alvin and the Chimpmunks 3 and Finding Nemo 'remastered version'), a cake pop set, a Baby Alive Baby Wanna Walk, and an arts and crafts set since she's into drawing. I know there's something else, but I can't remember I know I did say I was going to buy her a pair of Jordans (the cute girly looking ones).

    My parents...I have no idea what to get them since my mother stays in TJ Maxx every other week, and my father I think if I gave him something Redskins he'll be happy. My in-laws, I'll leave that up to him. My Granny and Grandpa, again people who have everything so not sure what to get them. I bought them a gift card to a restaurant one year and they gave it back to me. My other family members, trinkets to have around the house.

    As far as my list goes, I told him a perfume set (been leaving hints around the house for which one) and a crockpot (since he destroyed my other one earlier this year ). If I get anything extra happy wife.

    gifts clothes accessories. for others

    I donate all through the year so nothing more to give right now

    not really expecting anything for myself since I had no serious list of things i want/need. I needed a new hdmi cord and I'm guessing that's what I'll get.

    this year i got kinda rushed and i just not even going to kill myself trying in the last minute thing. People know I love them and that should be enough.
