Your Xmas list/what you plan on getting for others

I was wondering what's on everyone's Xmas list this year and if u feel like sharing it,what do u plan on getting for friends and family?
Personally I'm only after the new South Park game and the new purple rain sessions book.
As for what I'm getting for others.im not sure but I know I'll be getting some prince key chains for family members of mine.myncousin said he won't be buying Xmas gifts this year.my aunt told me not to go crazy and buy too much this year like I usually do.But I still want to.You never know,this year could be the last Christmas for someone.

I'm thinking of that...but you have to be careful. My sister sent me online gift cards in the past and I couldn't use them; when I requested that they send the money back to sender--they never did. mad I'm thinking of a gift card for movie theaters, reputable spa treatments, reputable restaurants, etc. Cash is always good but it doesn't have the same panache! razz lol In recent years, I stopped giving gifts and would take people out to dinner, shows, concerts, etc.

Fortunately, I have a deal with a lot of my friends that they don't get me anything, and I don't get them anything. There are some exceptions of course.

I still need to buy something for my cousin and her son. They live with me so it would be a bit awkward if I didn't get them anything. No idea what to get them though so I'll take suggestions.

My daughter has quite the extensive list, however. Greedy bitch lol.

Already got a present for my boyfriend. Preordered him an Xbox One X, which I will pick up when it's out next week.

My ex, I also have something for but can't say what it is because he's a lurker on this site.

My brother and older sister will get vouchers for something, I don't know what yet. My little sister will get clothes.

As for me, I'm not really fussed about what I get or at least, I haven't thought about it yet. I did want that new Super Mario Odyssey game but I bought that myself yesterday because I couldn't really wait til Christmas for it. Maybe an engagement ring perhaps? smile

I hate gift cards. Send a check or don't send nothing at all. I can't go out to dinner or to my 23rd viewing of The Last Jedi with a Walmart gift card.

God, I was only joking about the engagement ring but it actually seems like a possibility now. Best not get too excited just in case though. I've been wrong about this kind of thing in the past.

Tell me to mind my own business if I'm being too nosey biggrin ... but isn't that an odd situation? If I was buying my wife Xmas pressies and an ex-girlfriend as well I'm fairly sure my wife would be a bit concerned by that ...

My ex is also my best friend. My boyfriend doesn't mind. They're actually going to see the Justice League together this weekend.

Ah, might make a good prezzie for my husband, though I know he would be suspicious of the data collection that may or may not be being gathered by those carrying one - I'll look into it. Thank you
