Dad: Anaheim Ducks jersey(for his birthday right after Christmas, we’re going to get the jersey personalized), magnetic wristband (conveniently holds screws, nails, bolts, etc) and a “perfectly useless book” of trivia

Uncle: A set of Oakland Raiders drinking glasses and $50 gift card to Lidz (a hat store)

Brother: An Anaheim Angels keychain bottle opener, the movie “Grandma’s Boy” and $50 to JCP (or someplace similar)

Future Mother-In-Law: slippers, a purple mug (she requested a new one) and we’re going to personalize her Anaheim Ducks jersey as well

Sister’s boyfriend: this gadget charger that goes in the car that can charge numerous things at once

FH: new 160gb iPod classic, an Anaheim Ducks shirt, an Anaheim Ducks license plate frame, an Anaheim Ducks daily desk calendar, a fileting knife set (for when he goes fishing), a portable DVD player and Simpsons boxers


I like http://www.redenvelope.com and http://www.lakeside.com for online shopping.

  • Wedding: March 2010 - Calamigos Ranch

We’re giving everyone except our parents baked goods this year. I don’t know what we’re getting his parents or my dad yet, but my mom and my step-dad are getting the Settlers of Catan board game. We played it with them this weekend and they (surprisingly) loved it! They’re totally not board game people, so I was surprised that they agreed to play AND that they enjoyed it. In fact, I had to stop my step-dad from ordering it online telling him that you can’t buy gifts for yourself starting in November. ๐Ÿ˜‰

@pamplemousse: Yea, I got it. I bought it with a bunch of other things, and got 20% off. Plus two of the items shipped about a week later than promised, so they refunded 100% of the shipping– I was excited!

Good job on finding such a great deal!

i only have my nieces (i’ll be getting them clothes) and my mom (going in with my sisters for a cordless drill. a little random, i know) set. i have no clue what to gift my sisters, nephew and the mister. my bestie’s hopefully getting some paintings for her nursery (she’s expecting her first kid early next year) and a little something for her.

other than that, i also make a christmas gift basket of tasty goodies every year for my friends and this year i’m making flavored popcorn: pink popcorn (just made this for a baby shower and it was a hit!), caramel, and maybe a apple pie and something else. maybe a savory cheesy popcorn, though my sister is close to talking me into trying a brown butter candied bacon popcorn.
