    ^^It's the thoughts that counts. I think scratch cards are a nice cheap gift, it could be the best present they ever get.

    No shopping~ I am making things for everyone.
    So far, I'm probably about 15% done.
    I just started the other day, though~ not a big deal.

    I'm not really doing any Christmas shopping this year. To much going on. All of mine will be done sometime in January probably. Late.

    I'm largely skipping Christmas again. Might go to Elizabeth's grandmother's for a nice meal, that's it.

    Flying back to Alberta after Christmas and will encounter family then *shudder*. I have no idea how to avoid next Christmas.

    Not good. I must get started soon.

    I will buy clothes for my brothers, that's for sure. But I don't know what to give to my parents, my cousin or my friend... o:

    Boyfriend:
    - Sand Snake Keyring (give him it early because he lost his job!)
    - Giant Sand Turtle (yes we have a sand animal in joke and he loves turtles).
    - Border Collie figurine (we have a border collie in joke)
    - An "ASBO" for having a terrible taste in music!!

    Dad:
    - A 'sweep' plush from sooty and sweep. (Got him a Sooty for his birthday!)
    - 5 giant bars of dairy milk (his favourite)
    - Going to get him a yard of Jaffa Cakes (another favourite).

    His girlfriend:
    - A china Alsatian dog (that looks just like hers! :D)

    And a hell of a lot of impulse buying when I was out :(.

    I feel pretty cheap this year, but I guess I should be. I'm a student, and I have 5 siblings, 3 of which have spouses and there are 3 children between a couple of them. I feel bad for my older brother, because we both grew up liking comic books, video games, and we have the same sense of humor and taste in movies. So what do I get him? A freaking bread pan. Because he likes to bake and so does his wife. That's actually for both of them, along with a cookie sheet and triple-layered stacking wire rack. It's good, but it feels so bland and grownup. I want to get him some trading cards or something, but there's no place to get them around here, and it's far too late to order them. *sigh* Next year.

    Since my family stopped doing the gift thing about ten+ years back it has made shopping quite easy.
