Well what are you?
The smokers I got cigarette shaped lighters.
The young boys I got rubber band guns.
Most everyone else I got solar powered trinkets.
All out of japan.
Still spent a fortune! I need a smaller family.
I haven't bought a thing yet! The list is short this year though. The niece and nephews will get $. The out of town relatives get homemade goodies, my Aunt gets homemade egg ornaments , my DH reads my posts sometimes so I can't say and our son doesn't really know what he wants. Maybe a few movies, a couple of Green Day things and a pair of slippers.
Got my brother and SIL a grilling cookbook with spices. Daughter gets slippers, a top and money. The rest we have yet to figure out.
For younger nieces and nephews: Shaun the Sheep videos
