    I'm too overwhelmed to even think about these questions right now! Buying Christmas gifts gives me anxiety... I just never know what to get for people.

    What are your top 5 items on your list that you want this year?
    I actually only have 4:  Seasons 1 - 4 of True Blood on BluRay

    What are you buying BF/FI/H?
    No idea yet, but I'm sure it'll be something for his camera

    Who else do you have to buy for?  What are you getting them?
    My parents, sisters, neices & nephews.  I'm going cheap this year and probably going to frame wedding pictures for everyone.  Of course, I'll be getting the kids toys.  Oh, and the bigger gift for my mom, but we technically won't actually pay for that until we book the tickets.

    Do you go shopping on Black Friday?
    Hell no.  There's no deal that's worth getting up that early, waiting in line in the cold, and dealing with a mob of people.  LOL.

    What was your favorite Christmas gift as a child?
    Probably the obvious kid gift, my bike.  Although, I do remember being abnormally excited the year I got a few Sky Dancers (anyone remember those?)

    Anything that you wanted and never got?
    A barbie house.  I probably wrote it on my list from the age of 3 to like 9 and never got it.  I even asked my mom one year if Santa didn't like me because he still wouldn't buy my barbie house.  They weren't that much money so I have no idea why my parents never bought it for me. lol.

    What's your favorite gift you've ever given?
    So far, a framed photo to H.  His favorite photographer is Peter Lik and his prints are like thousands of dollars.  I managed to find a lithograph poster on eBay (from Australia) for $75 and had it custom framed for him.  He loved it and had absolutely no idea what I was getting him.

    Although I'm really excited to give my mom her present this year.  I'm buying the Kauai Revealed book and then I'm going to print a fake airline ticket with my mom's name on it.  I think we'll have to explain to her that we are actually going to take her to Hawaii and not just buying her a Hawaii book, but she'll be soooo excited.

    "What are your top 5 items on your list that you want this year?" Deathly Hallows pt1 and pt2 DVDs The Son of Neptune a new laundry basket cellphone cover "What are you buying BF/FI/H?" I still have no idea. "Who else do you have to buy for?  What are you getting them? For my dad I always buy him a Yankees calendar; For my mom I usually buy a book. I have a few friend's I need to buy for, but I'm not sure what I'm getting for them, yet, either. "Do you go shopping on Black Friday?" No way, I hate crowds. "What was your favorite Christmas gift as a child?" Rainbow Brite doll! "Anything that you wanted and never got?" I can't remember offhand, but I'm sure there have been stuff I hinted at and didn't receive. "What's your favorite gift you've ever given?" Harry Potter book. :)

    Is it weird that I stopped making Christmas lists years ago? I think it's a combination of wanting to be surprised, not wanting to ask people to buy me things, and being afraid I'll be disappointed if my parent's aren't able to get me anything.

    ETA: Has anyone's parents stopped sending gifts?

    I only make lists when asked for them.  But I'm pretty sure my parents won't be doing gifts this year, they are <em>really</em> tight on finances right now and I don't want them to think that they have to get us something.

    What are your top 5 items on your list that you want this year?
    I would like a Keurig, iPad2 and an HD video camera, but I haven't asked a single soul for any of those things and never will!

    Things I actually asked for since my mom asked: Tripod, slipper socks, Chuck season 4, a plug-in wax melting thing (since my office smells weird sometimes) and cash.

    What are you buying BF/FI/H?
    I'm buying BF a new keyboard, mouse and mousepad, plus a whiteboard and some flannel pants. He specifically asked for those first 4 items, the pants are my idea because he loves those.

    Who else do you have to buy for?  What are you getting them?
    My parents, my sister, my grandparents, BF's parents, BF's nieces and nephews, and various secret santas!

    My parents and grandparents and BF's parents are all getting a photo book I made of our travels over the past year. I'm getting my sister a pillowpet, and BF's nieces and nephews will all get toys and such.

    Do you go shopping on Black Friday?
    Not until after 5pm, if I go at all.

    What was your favorite Christmas gift as a child?
    The camera I got in elementary school, and I love the Christmas cards my mom makes every year! I save them all.

    Anything that you wanted and never got?
    EVERY year I asked for a game system of some type (super nintendo, sega, N64, playstation) and never got one. On my 14th bday I finally got the N64 and I was BEYOND excited!

    What's your favorite gift you've ever given?
    Last year I made prints of a painting I did and framed it for my grandparents and parents.

    What are your top 5 items on your list that you want this year?
    I have no idea. Both families wanted to cut way back this year since none of us have kiddos right now, so we're just doing stockings with $5 & under items from each other.

    What are you buying BF/FI/H?
    We'll probably spend around $20 on each other. I have no idea what I'm getting him yet. He's recently gotten into coin collecting, so I may try and find something he can add to his collection.

    Who else do you have to buy for?  What are you getting them?
    I always buy a package of pears from Harry & David for my grandparents and I still need an idea for BF's dad. He's super hard to shop for.

    Do you go shopping on Black Friday?
    No way Jose!

    What was your favorite Christmas gift as a child?
    The Barbie Doll Dream House, duh!

    Anything that you wanted and never got?
    I'm sure there were things when I was younger, but any more it's becoming less and less about the gifts for me. That's probably a good thing.

    What's your favorite gift you've ever given?
    Having trouble thinking of something for this one. My brother and his girlfriend are probably not going to make it out for Christmas this year. She is super into animals (probably likes them more than people actually). This year I got them both a pair of slippers that look like animal feet: he's getting tiger feet and she's getting polar bear feet. I'm really excited about those this year.

    What are your top 5 items on your list that you want this year?
    A noise machine, a heated neck wrap, g/c to a good restaurant, g/c to go clothes shopping, pedicure.

    What are you buying BF/FI/H?
    I got him a nice sewn letter/number AJ Green (Bengals) jersey and gave it to him early.  Other than that I will give him a few small things that he needs...boxer briefs, new shirts, maybe cologne, we'll see.

    Who else do you have to buy for?  What are you getting them?
    My son, my Dad & PSM (pseudo step-mom), my step-dad, and a gift for the excahnge at my family.  For his family the siblings &SO's exchange names so I have one of his BIL's to buy for and he and his sibs are getting his parents a nice wireless printer to go with the laptop they got them last year.

    Do you go shopping on Black Friday?
    I have before, but only for a great deal and always in and out (got a t.v. once, went in a few minutes after they opened walked out in about 10 minutes with a t.v. at almost half-price, no waiting outside or anything!) This year I will probably do a little online shopping, but definitely no going out to stores.

    What was your favorite Christmas gift as a child?
    My first puppy, who died years ago, my parents(mom &step-dad) surprised me and it was awesome!  The Basketball hoop and Bike were pretty memorable too.  Oh and one year I got a small-ish present that said "open last"...it was a chia pet, apparently Mom thought that if I opened that first I'd abandon the other gifts...LOL!

    Anything that you wanted and never got?
    An iguana, I really wanted one, but my Mom was terrified and refused.  Otherwise I got most things 

    What's your favorite gift you've ever given?
    Seeing my son RUN and jump on his bike from "Santa" that I got and put together myself last Christmas was awesome!   He proceeded to ride it all through the apartment at 7am...priceless! :)

    Another that I gave and received credit for (instead of Santa) was a framed panoramic poster of the OSU bowl game in AZ that I got for BF for our first Christmas together.  I gave him the picture because I knew that he was at that game.  After boyfriend scanned the end zone closest to the photographer he found himself and guys he went with in the picture!  He was stoked!  He shows everyone and tells them that I got it for him! :)

    What are your top 5 items on your list that you want this year?
    A new computer, which I am getting (it's our shared gift this year). I would also like a wallet, raincoat and some new shoes. I'm very practical.

    What are you buying BF/FI/H?
    I'm going to get him a new tie. He has to wear ties for work now and he needs to expand his collection so he doesn't wear the same ties over and over again. I also might get him a really cool belt I saw that's made out of an old seatbelt from a Ford truck.

    Who else do you have to buy for?  What are you getting them?
    I have to buy for my SS and my mom, I guess but I don't know what she wants.

    Do you go shopping on Black Friday?
    Not unless my mom goes too, which I only did twice. Once was to get a new TV for my room (my old one had died only two days before). The other was last year to get my brother a laptop, and then we went to the mall just for fun, where I ended up getting a dress to wear to FI's sister's wedding.

    What was your favorite Christmas gift as a child?
    Nothing, cus I don't celebrate Christmas ;) My favorite Hannukah gift was going to

    Anything that you wanted and never got?
    I usually got whatever I asked for because I'm more of a books/DVDs/CD/gift cards type person when it comes to gifts.

    What's your favorite gift you've ever given?
    I gave FI a peacoat one year, and a Jets jersey with his favorite player's name and number on it.

    I'm sitting at Starbucks working on homework and a girl is getting interviewed sitting next to me. She's mentioned her boyfriend 5 times in the first few questions. O dear.... Anyways.....

    What are your top 5 items on your list that you want this year?
    A camera, that naked eye shadow from Sephora, clothes from my momma, cool socks, and some new slippers.

    What are you buying BF/FI/H?
    He wantes these stupid magnetic ball things that make a paper weight for his desk at work. Whatever. I'll also probably get him some nice work shirts. I may do a bunch of cooking for him and freeze a bunch of meals to heat up when he wants them since he would like it. Hmm.... I wish he was easier to shop for. Gosh.  And I'll give him some lovin'.   He likes that always. ;)

    Who else do you have to buy for?  What are you getting them?
    Mom, dad, my 3 siblings, my SS, and friends. I don't know what I'm getting for them, except my ss. My mom I always get her a cute snowman thing because she collects those. Dad I always get random tools that he asks for. Other than that, who knows.

    Do you go shopping on Black Friday?
    Usually, but I may not go this year because I don't know of anything that I am dying to buy.

    What was your favorite Christmas gift as a child?
    I got a giant dollhouse once.  I loved that thing.

    Anything that you wanted and never got?
    I always asked Santa for a toy poodle. Never got that one.

    What's your favorite gift you've ever given?
    Hmmm... I honestly don't know. Either I give NO good gifts, or else just nothing is really standing out to me I guess.

    KA stand mixer!! - from BF
    Ice cream making attachment
    food processor/grinder attachment - on of those two from my sister since she's my not-so-secret Santa

    I also really want a new iPod and digital camera, but those will have to wait

    What are you buying BF/FI/H?
    Probably a Cowboys jersey and a vaporizer. And every year I get him funny T-shirts because he loves them. This year I'm thinking these ones...










    Who else do you have to buy for?  What are you getting them?
    Jon got my mom and I got my dad for SS, so I'm going to ask him to pool together and get them a weekend night away at a B&B somewhere. Not sure what we will get his parents and brother & sister yet.

    Do you go shopping on Black Friday?
    I have but I don't think I will this year. There's nothing I really need to go BF shopping for.

    What was your favorite Christmas gift as a child?
    My Mommy's Having a Baby (I was obsessed with all things baby/pregnancy when I was little), and my Barbie Camper. LOVED that thing.

    Anything that you wanted and never got?
    A dollhouse. My dad started building one one year and never got around to finishing it. He actually still has a lot of guilt about it, and plans to make one for my daughter if I have one.

    What's your favorite gift you've ever given?
    Probably the grill I bought BF a few years ago, or the coat I bought my sister last year. It was one of those perfect things she never knew she wanted, and was IN LOVE with it. This year, if I can pull off the weekend away for my parents, that will be my fave.

    New flat iron, North Face fleece (I can't believe I still don't own one), and I need to come up with some less expensive stuff for my siblings and other relatives to get me.

    What are you buying BF/FI/H?
    I don't know! I was thinking of paying for a snow removal service to come through the winter and plow our driveway, since he HATES snow because he has to do that. However, it's pretty expensive, so I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to swing it.

    Who else do you have to buy for?  What are you getting them?
    Mom, Daddy, siblings, Secret Santa from here, Secret Santa with my college friends, cousins and their kids, Aunt and Uncle, Grandma and Step-Grandfather on my Mom's side, best friends from high school. Yeah, it's a lot. I also bake cookies for people like our neighbors, mailman, etc.

    Do you go shopping on Black Friday?
    Absolutely not. I get anxiety just thinking about that.

    What was your favorite Christmas gift as a child?
    American Girl dolls. I got a new one every Christmas as my "big" gift.

    Anything that you wanted and never got?
    One of those kid sized Barbie jeeps. We lived down a gravel drive, so I'm not sure where I though I would use it.

    What's your favorite gift you've ever given?
    Probably BF's birthday gifts-especially this year when we did that whole weekend in Cooperstown, NY. I also gave both of my parents iPods recently, and my Mom especially loved hers.

    The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (bonus if I get the package thingy that gives me a gold Wiimote), baking stuffs...ummm...apparently that's all I can think of...

    What are you buying BF/FI/H?
    I'm getting him two games, and possibly something else. One of the games I may give on his birthday instead. I haven't decided yet.

    Who else do you have to buy for?  What are you getting them?
    My 5 nieces (a band shirt, perfume, books, a Barbie something, and Dora something, and Let's Go Fishin'  (<-- clicky) for the younger two). My sisters, the older I'm getting a jewellery box and the yunger I'm getting Okami for the Wii. My BIL, who's getting ???. My mom, who I got a grooming tool for her cat. My mom's BF who'd getting ???. My dad who's getting ???. My BFF who's also getting ???.

    Do you go shopping on Black Friday?
    Not usually. I kinda hate the whole thing. This year I'll be going for one thing, but I'm only going at like 10am at the earliest.

    What was your favorite Christmas gift as a child?
    My Tycho Rebound RC. That thing was awesome. Even more awesome after my dad and grandpa would let me play with the darn thing! (They took it and played with it so much they drained the battery. Anyone who ever had one knows the painful wait on those batteries...)

    Anything that you wanted and never got?
    Probably, but I don't remember it.

    What's your favorite gift you've ever given?
    Probably this year's Let's Go Fishin. My sis and I used to play that thing at our neighbor's house as kinds, so when I saw it it was a blast from the past. I'm kinda excited :P

    What are your top 5 items on your list that you want this year?
    I don't really want much. I asked for gift cards so I can get work clothes (Banana Republic, New York and Co) and a vacuum. Ha. I'm hoping BF gets me some pretty jewelry again - he got me pearl earrings last year and I wear them constantly. I asked for some DVDs for my Secret Santa.

    What are you buying BF/FI/H?
    I'm getting him a remote control helicopter! I've been looking around and have only seen 3 channel ones and he wants a 4 channel (so it goes up and down, forward and back and side to side) so I'll have to go online I think. I'll also probably make him cookies again.

    Who else do you have to buy for?  What are you getting them?
    I'm planning on getting my mom a pretty blouse or sweater. I have NO clue what to get my dad, he's impossible to shop for. I have to do a white elephant gift for my mom's side so I'm doing 2 bottles of local wine from my school and a box of Rocher chocolates. I got my uncle on my dad's side for Secret Santa and he wants jeans...lol. I think I also might make cookies for my BF's parents and my mentor teacher.

    Do you go shopping on Black Friday?
    I have in the past, but not this year. I'm hoping to do a bunch of shopping online.

    What was your favorite Christmas gift as a child?
    I used to love getting stuff for my Fisher Price dollhouse, or clothes for my Bitty Babies :). It was fun to have a lot of small presents to open as a kid.

    Anything that you wanted and never got?
    Remember when Tamagochi's were big like...12 or so years ago? I always wanted a NanoBaby like my neighbor (she was that one friend who had EVERYTHING) and never got one.

    What's your favorite gift you've ever given?
    I'm truly blanking. I'm not the best gift giver, unfortunately even though I always try so hard to give the perfect thing. I guess I'm pretty excited about the helicopter for BF this year :)
