Blu-ray movies/TV shows, one of those Precious Moments figures, an 8 GB SDHC card, and some yet to be determined gifts for my parents. It's easy to shop for my sibling and my significant other gives me a weighted list, though I usually throw in a surprise gift to mix it up. Yup, after so many years I got this down pat.

My hubby and I tend to be somewhat lacking in the gift-giving department during the holidays...namely because we just don't have the funds. We'll usually try to get stuff for our sisters, but that's about it. Our parents are too difficult to shop for, my relatives all live out of state, and his all live within 20 miles of us. Friends, we occasionally get gifts for, when we can. But depending on how my job situation looks one month from now, we may have to hold off on gifts entirely.

My parents, I have no idea. They usually say they don't want anything.

My boyfriend, I have no idea. I don't want to outright ask him what he wants because surprises are nice, but he's a really laid-back kind of person and doesn't really get excited over wanting things, and doesn't collect stuff, and ack! So tricky! I'll probably see if I can finagle any information out of him about video games he'd like. The hard part is going to be not being obvious about it.

This was sooooo much easier when I was overseas - all I had to do was bring back fun foreign things! Domestic gift shopping is difficult. :(

This Christmas I'm a little low on cash lol. I have been drawing pictures (on huge canvas boards) for my three brothers, my parents and my frriends. They are each unique and created to what their favorite thing is. I'm pretty proud of how they have been turning out xP The only things I'm buying is an Ulta giftcard for my sister in law and two cute stuffed tigers for my little nieces.

I got my boyfriend a couple of the Bandai SH MonsterArts Godzilla figures for Christmas. He's been looking at them for a while but he won't admit he actually wants them. So I got him the regular and the Burning ones, with Burning having just come in the mail the other day:

Parents are getting a gift card from a local restaurant, and my friends and I don't exchange gifts so I don't have to worry about them.

Thinking about picking these up for someone. I think they are a salt & pepper shaker from a local shop.Posted Image
I'd post the other one up but because of the B word, it would probably be removed. It's pretty funny though.
