    S/O Holiday Gifts

    Advertisements
    Another thread about presents Sorry but I'm curious

    What did you get people? I want pics/descriptions (like the kids thread )

    My Mom: Kindle!


    My Dad: A lighted hat, so far. Need to find 1 more present


    My Stepmom: a gift certificate to a spa!

    My soon-to-be-stepdad: Nooo idea... Thinking something hunting-related.

    My Sister: These books


    My MIL: Noooo idea yet. Dh and I are thinking something like an Ipsy subscription? Not sure.

    My FIL: This shirt. Still need 1 more present.


    SIL#1:


    SIL#2: No idea! She lives at home with MIL/FIL and doesn't have much room for physical things so maybe a subscription to something.

    DH: DIY video game handheld console kit

    technologywillsaveus - Pre Order DIY Gamer Kit (with Arduino)
    WiggleWiggle~ is my Wifey

    I haven't gotten anything for anyone other than DS yet. My dad will get some type of Lego or other building toy (he loves them), sister will get either jewelry or something for her house, SIL & BIL will get a toy and I'm not sure what my FIL, MIL or DH will get yet.

    DH either wants a tablet or an ultrabook so I'm going to get him that. And he wants a whole bunch of tools, I have a list somewhere.

    Haven't really decided what I'm getting for my family. Probably gift cards because they can be hard to buy for.

    DH is getting a baby. And maybe a family portrait session. DH wants Niki to have baby pictures because he's always been sad that he doesnt have any pictures of himself before age 8 or so.

    That's adorable.

    I haven't gotten anyone anything yet. I'll probably get my brother a bunch of mountain biking equipment, my SIll will probably get kitchen supplies and baking items, and my dad is the hardest person to shop for in the world. I have no idea what he'll get.

    I got my Mom an eskimo ornament made out of Alaskan cottonwood tree wood and rabbit fur. We got my Dad an antler flint starter thingie. Both Alaskan made obviously.

    Both grandparents I ordered holiday photos today for with a frame.

    Those new jewelry in candles for my sister and my closest friends.

    Giftcard probably for my brother.

    My husband: Syracuse stuff, beer signs for his man cave, may try to hunt down some brewery shirts.

    We don't really do presents for anyone. We're grinches. I do get DH, me (I need presents too!) and the dogs stocking stuffers. That's about it. My mom apparently taught me well that presents bought through out the year should hold just as much meaning so I just buy my family things when I know they'll like something.

    Alright, so now that I've figured everyone out

    My dad:
    K'nex NASCAR Car Building Set


    My sister:
    Brentwood Beach Sign Decorative Pillow


    FIL & MIL:
    Either -
    "Marriage Takes Three" Mugs


    or
    "Marriage Takes Three" Tabletop Cross


    BIL:
    LEGO DUPLO Cars Race Day


    SIL:
    Vintage-inspired Necklace



    SIL is just about to enter the teen years so I thought she'd appreciate something a little more girly & grown up. Did you figure out by now that I'm responsible for choosing everyone's gifts?
