O.P. What are you going to give others on Christmas?
Right, enough with the "OMG I'LL GET A PS3" stuff in threads that focus on what YOU want. Now it's time to tell you what you have bought for your friends and relatives for Christmas. Why have you bought that (something special about it, something that the person needs)?

I'm usually pretty good with coming up with stuff to give, but this year I'm not sure. I kinda know what I'm going to give to my grandmother, but I'd like to give something else aswell (the first thing is a skincare product that I've bought the last few years, she know I will give it, it's a tradition).
My dad needs a computer upgrade, but I can't really afford that. I could buy just one component, but the computer is so old that anything fairly new wouldn't go in it without upgrading something else aswell.
For my mom I'm most likely buying a new clock radio, the old one is old and it doesn't work that well.
I'll need to think on the rest, I like when people recieve gifts they didn't expect at all.

Now, tell us about your presents! :D

I will probably give others some random stuffs depending on how close I am with them...
Doesn't really matter what you give, it's the thoughts that count.

I will give the gift... of love. :P

I refuse to represent how much I care in the form of monetary presents.

And, um, I'm broke.

Tesco Value chocolate for everyone!
