This is a question Presents

What are you buying your loved ones this Christmas? We're looking for inspiration and reckon a big share-a-thon of ideas will help everyone buy better gifts this year.

BTW: If your family reads B3ta and you're worried about giving the game away then tell us what you bought last Christmas.

incontinence nappy and breast firming gel
last year i was really poor, so signed up to all the free stuff websites, and throughout the year managed to collect a box full of stuff of freebies which ranged from (mainly) perfume samples and make-up samples.
but among these i also managed to get some spot creams, some sanitary towels, an incontinance nappy for adults, breast firming gel, tea bags, a chocolate bar, a cd, some jelly beans, a recipe calendar and some tights etc..

my friend who i gave this box of awesomeness too was actually pleased with it and has used most of the stuff in it! (apart from the nappy i am told!)

My brother got me a book a few Christmases back
"Fat is a feminist issue"

"ooo", I thought, some sociological bitchy ranting, I like that. So I thank him politely and it gets shelved away somewhere.

I finally started it the other day: turns out it's not a nice ranty read, but a weight-loss self help book.

He's going to get "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People" this year.

If you can think of anything better, add in the reply bit please!

Some kind of chocolate overload
I got an absolutely killer deal from Thorntons with the help of a surprisingly thriftly and attentive friend, and so I've ordered about £55 worth of assorted chocolates, fudge, toffee and general sweet things for the princely sum of £23.50 including delivery.

My family told me we were having a budget-conscious Christmas this year. I like to think I'm just buying into the spirit in a slightly alternative way...

My dad's recently expressed an interest in beekeeping.
Notwithstanding the rather laboured joke on my profile, this is entirely in earnest.

If anyone out there knows anything about it, and whether there's such a thing as a beginner's kit, could you gaz me?

EDIT: I'm even changing my icon back to Prodge's bee to demonstrate my bona fides.

My mom bought my brother's fiance a packet of teabags.
She then individually wrapped each one in different sized boxes and put them under the tree.

For the Star Wars fan

I have a feeling toys of the future may be even better than Transformers were.

An honest answer,
and therefore boring. Last Christmas I got my grandparents one of those calendars that online photo companies print. You know the sort - upload a couple of pictures for each month and your granny has the delight of seeing your oversmiling face grinning down at her while she eats her catfood in front of the superser. They loved it. Thought it was the best thing EVAR. You'd have thought I'd invented the concept of time itself.*

This year I'm either getting them another calendar or more catfood.

*NB: it wasn't one of those naked calendars, just regular photos, not from my private Internet stock library. No breasts.

Paintball with TANKS
www.armourgeddon.co.uk/ and click on "tank battles".

I'm probably going to get this for my sisters.

Driving around in a real tank, modified to fire 40mm paintballs? It can't fail to be awesome.

I will give my loved ones the gift of my considerably young, large pert breasts.
If they don't like it I will get my mate to kick them in the face.

Everyone else can have the Star Wars toys and 2000AD comics that my mum didn't give away to a jumble sale.

I've asked Santa for a Honda Accord.

Edit: Nuff said, good times, etc.

The consumerism culture of Christmas pisses me right off. They'll get something small but awesome, something that makes me think 'ooh that's perfect for them'. Not a plethora of shit that no-one really wants.

Highest ever.

Dear family members, please give me a subscription to Private Eye. I've been asking for this present for some six years and none of you have ever bothered. Cunts.

Just re-read the question. What am I getting my family? They might get a visit from me. Air tickets from China are bloody expensive.
