    My son will get stuff for his car. My SO will get some geeky toy.

    Everyone else has to suffer through knitted goods from me. Last year everyone got socks. This year it might be hats.

    I have very few people to give to though so it makes it easy.

    We're only buying for my/ our kids this year.
    My older son is getting skateboard stuff
    My daughter is getting a microphone as per her request
    Not sure about the baby, probably one of those ride on things he can walk behind, the one we have is pink with princesses and SO is not feeling that for his little boy.

    I love homemade gifts. One year my SOs mom made those fuzzy scarfs...I don't know how to explain them...but I loved mine!

    My daughter/fiancee is getting $ to puts toward a flat screen TV. My mom/husband I usually send a foodie gift. My sister same thing. SOs family - dunno - we usually draw names. SO - a IHome alarm clock and probably some clothes he has been checking out in Eddie Bauer.

    In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~

    We're doing it kinda small this year, right now I'm working on a cross stitch thingy for my MIL and DH's grandma...my mom just wants 'any pictures' and i'll probably bake some stuff to send to her, my nephews are getting paint ball guns from Santa, so my sis wants me to buy something that would go with that, and that's about as far as i've gotten.

    Probably something for my hubby's car for him ...I think I'll get the windows tinted for him.

    As most of my family are a waste of space I think I'll buy them one of these each and then they can all hop off into the sunset.

    I think I'm getting MIL a digital camera, if I can find one under $100.
    Not sure what to get our nephews age 6,(in first grade), and almost 3. Will take any suggestions.
    Don't know what to get our nieces, either, they are 12 and 10.

    I think I am getting my older daugther one of those taggie pens and book so she will be able to click on the words.
    And I am not sure what to get the 2 and 1 year old.

    I better start thinking some more!!

    Hubby - backpack for scouting trips

    Son - backpack for scouting trips, pocket knife, compass, Lego sets he wants

    Dad - natural soaps (kathymack's) to take on his trip since he likes different soaps. I don't know what else, hard to shop for, he buys everything he wants!

    FIL - laptop cooler fan and ?

    MIL - ???

    Sis - laptop cooler fan (yes, they want them!), maybe some soaps....?

    others - ???

    I guess it's too early.
