I got my dad 2 sports books.

My brother is getting a Star Wars puzzle and a Cowboys pillow.

Well I got the paternal units a new living room TV this year as part of their Christmas gift.  My previous work had a system where managers could award employees with recognition points and I had enough built up to get them a 43" Samsung.  I decided to get that for them back in October since my job was ending in November and I wanted to use up all my points before then.   Thing is that while the screen itself is slightly bigger it looks a little bit smaller since it doesn't have the large frame around the screen like their old 41" TV did.

I got some photo gifts for my brother, sister, parents, and sister-in-law.  I got my parents a custom puzzle of a picture I took in Peru last year.  Sister and sister in law are getting poster prints also from that trip.  My brother is getting a mug with grandma and my niece on it.

Plenty of intoxicating beverages will be passed along.  I got the whiskeys my sister and brother in law wanted.  I assume someone has already gotten my dad some Kessler's or Jack for Christmas.  My brother asked me if I wanted any New Glarus stuff so I assume that if not beer I'll be getting some swag from them.

Got my niece some Dr. Seuss books and a puzzle meant for kids ages 3+.  Even if she can't use them right now I figure she'll grow into them.

All that's left is I want to get my new niece or nephew due in April something as well as my dad.

christmas bags filled with christmas joy. They may include gift cards, cookies, nuts, candy, small bottle of wine or something without alcohol, obligatory candle and other stuff. Easy, quick and always appreciated.



we stopped giving presents years ago

Mostly gift cards, but my brother gets bourbon + bourbon balls, my dad gets pajamas, and my mom is getting a photograph of her kids that's been turned into a puzzle.

I got Kristi a pair of tickets to see her favourite singer live next December, a ticket to a night with Dolly Parton, a new PC, a handmade leather cover for her Kindle, a giant fuzzy D20, some more normal, if pink dice and some treats for a stocking. A few other small bits and pieces that have slipped my mind exactly what they are.

Ash has gotten a lot of Hotwheels stuff. He loves his cars. He's gotten his mum a Jurassic Park board game and a Highlander one as well as a CD.

No, its more of a sit-down chat thing where she talks about her career and her charity where she gives books to kids and unfortunately it is via Zoom.

I bought my son Jed a Carharrt coat. I'm giving Eddie an old Batman comic. I don't have any more money.
It's ok. We're all broke grown ups . It's alright.
