    I've got NOTHING so far :(

    Planning on ordering:
    Zach a t-shirt that says "I'd prefer not to"

    I also wanted to order him a mug and a key chain from etsy, and I stupid didn't and now they're gone. I might get us bracelets that say "I love you" and "I know".

    I'm usually really good at Christmas shopping but this year I don't know what the heck to get anyone!

    I bought a shadowbox for my mom at a garage sale about a month ago. I also bought her a pair of earrings she said she liked while we were picking out earrings for my grandma.
    I bought two pairs of earrings for grandma, plus two new dishtowels and a washrag set.
    I bought a 69 Camaro shirt for my dad (who owned two 69 Camaros back in the day.
    And a Batman snuggie for my BIL. It's hilarious.

    that's it so far. I'm either going to order stuff for other folks or I just haven't found it in a store yet.

    Bought my girls new laptops this afternoon. My son some work boots. 1 daughter a camera and I ordered dad a new router and table set. I think that's all the on-line shopping I have to do this Christmas. I do a lot of in store shopping at Kohls, most times I get 30% off there. I don't have a lot of people to buy for so I don't get stressed at Christmas.

    I've bought ONE christmas gift thus far, and I still don't even know who we're giving it to. I think it's part of a gift for Matt's mom... we'll see.

    I found that one completely on a spur of the moment purchase about a month ago. I haven't done any other thing for Christmas at all.

    I bought tickets to see Jeff Dunham (<3) for when Mommy and Grammy come visit me the week after Christmas.

    For MIL: Amethyst necklace from Amazon super clearance a couple months ago for like $6. And also a book.
    For DH: Weeds seasons on Blue Ray for $10/each at walmart. Ravens pajama pants for free with Kohls cash. Half priced tools from sears' fall clearance yesterday (hooray for shovels and brooms and rakes!)
    For dad: Rhubarb jam from Amish-land when we visited over the summer. Rubiks cube puzzle thing that was on super clearance for like $2 a while ago.
    For sister: A book...and I need to track down something more.
    For Grammy: Moose placemats from Amish-land
    For cousin: I paid his college application costs

    I need something small for my mom and sister, something for FIL, and for my brother in law and his girlfriend (probably just a restaurant gift card). My in-laws are in the midst of trying to sell their house and move several states away, so I'm trying to find something they'll be able to use that won't take up space.

    Hmmm... Let's see...

    For my grandparents I got a handpainted wooden plate at artsfest for their kitchen (they have a chicken theme and it has a rooster)

    For mom, a bone-shaped stone with a photo of Cleo (her late std poodle) in it for the garden, and probably a Mary Kay foot care kit

    For dad, so far just a 'we love our joe' (as in joepa) coffee cup, and I think the boytoy & I are going to take him to DC for a day trip of brunch at the blue duck & museums.

    My brother wants CDs

    Got my friend a beagle print (he beagles ;) )

    So far I've gotten the boytoy new nipple rings, but already gave him those lol so any ideas are appreciated...

    The ex-foster dogs got a stuffy each

    Rage & Liz got Ella's lead tag collars in Xmas colors & red dingo tags to go on them, and Rage got some stuffed toys wearing Santa hats :). Daisy will probably get food.

    Rosey has 2 bags of treats, and a monkey toy.
    Rascal has a sherpa lined tumble bed.
    Renegade and Harley have a banana hammock, to go with their monkey hammock.
    Harley has 2 bags of banana flavoured bandits.
    Renegade has... I forget exactly what else I ordered for him :p Should be here tomorrow
    All 3 ferrets are getting a tube to run in and share
    Plus there are 2 or 3 Secret Santa packages coming for Rosey, and one coming for the ferrets.

    Finn has a toy.

    I wasn't going to buy Christmas gifts for the family, cause I am way too poor this year, but I won my mom something, so now I have to :p
    My mom is getting a 3-pot crock pot thing
    My brother I will likely just give him some US money for his trip to New Orleans in January
    I'll hopefully win something for my dad within the next 3 weeks. If not, NO idea wtf to get him.

    I'm not buying for anybody else this year. Eff it. Too poor for that stuff.

    For my daughter, Emily: Ordered from Cabella's online: thermal base layer pants and top and some cozy micro fleece pants and top. (she's always freezing) A dress from Eddie Bauer. From Walmart, one of those memory foam mattress toppers. Her mattress needs some help. lol.

    For my son, Andrew, I got at Eddie Bauer a nice jersey type shirt, a chamois shirt. (so soft and cozy). At Grocery Outlet I found a nice, thick, fleece-lined sweat shirt for him. From Cabella's, a pair of sheep skin-lined slippers. I'm looking at a cool fishing vest for him also. His b-day is the 7th, so I have to be careful not to slight him. lol. So, I need to find a couple of other little things or give him some cash. He'd like that.

    For my Mom from Eddie Bauer, I found a super stylish sweater with a zipper and pockets that have a trim. And some slippers from Cabella's. She likes nice soaps and things, so I got some special soaps. I think I should find her something else for her to open, so will keep a look-out for something.

    For my ex: from Cabella's online, I am ordering a Pendleton cardigan, zip-up sweater, another kind of insulated shirt (everyone is always freezing around here, which is so weird to me, oh well:cool:) sheep skin slippers and a gift card to Trader Joes.

    For the whole family, I picked up the game, Balderdash...thought that would be fun.

    The dogs usually get some bully sticks or some kind of new thing to chew on. Toker, my son's dog may get a new bed for when she's at my house....haven't decided yet. I usually, at the last minute pick up a few other little things. I'm debating on whether or not to do stockings this year.

    For me, I'm getting a gorgeous down coat with a faux fur trim around the hood (semi dressy) from Eddie Bauer. I also sprang for an adorable plaid, down vest, a shirt to go under it and a cardigan sweater. We all went to the outlet mall the other day...too many good "savings" to pass up. :p

    Do you buy yourself something and call it a Xmas present from yourself? :rofl1:

    Nothing , I will get my bonus (ow please god) on the 23rd then do the wild dash to the bank and then spend some hectic hours running around buying things for the kids. NO adult gets bought for. EVER. Christmas is for kids in my house , i have to big a family to buy everyone something. The older two are bummed they did not have but 1 gift last year , (it was money) so this year they are getting there money in ones , that will be individually wrapped. well at least 10 ones to each gift! MWHAHAHAHAHAHA

    I will say though , i am looking forward to the after christmas sales. Chris and I get a little something each year then.

    I just ordered my mom a Fetching Tag for Georgie... and ummm because it was a good deal if you spent $60, I also ordered Auggie a second one. D=

    now I'm also thinking about ordering a second for Payton and Pepper both, because I think it's unfair for Auggie to have two and they only have one. somebody please stop me LOL.

    Stop it Beanie!

    My mum says for Christmas what she really really wants is diamond earrings, 1/4 carat each. I highly doubt my dad is going to buy them for her, but I was thinking maybe I could find a "cheap pair". I'll try, but I might end up saving and waiting till Mothers' Day.

    Other than that, I'm shopping for a crossdresser. I forgot how expensive makeup is, wigs, new shoes, etc.

    That game is AWESOME. It is by far one of my favorite board games. If you're not afraid to make a fool of yourself the game Quelf is really fun too.

    I have done pretty much nothing for Christmas shopping this year. I'm probably doing bath salts/washcloths for the girls and....I dunno what for the guys. Shipping to Hawaii for Matt's parents is going to kill us so I might just see if we can order their stuff from somewhere with free shipping. I hate to be all doom and gloom (normally I love Christmas) but I'm really not feeling it this year. I don't want to go to my parent's house, I don't want to hang out with my family, I don't want any presents, and I don't want to go buy anything. My cheer, it is broken.

    We are just doing small stuff... It has got to fit in packages, lol.

    We haven't really gotten anything yet, besides some bath & body works stuff for my sister (had coupon and was on sale).

    We are planning to go to some local stores and antique stores this weekend and buy locally. I'm sure we'll make some cool, unusual finds.
