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.

My Brother
I don’t look forward to Christmas. Well, certainly not entertaining my brother. He’s quite frugal you see. Now I’m well aware of these shrewd types you often hear about; queer folk that’ll use tea bags three or four times, will wear the same clothes day in, day out and will refuse to switch their central heating on. But my brother...

Well, my brother goes slightly further than these meek and miserly souls. His house is broken, dirty, has never been painted, and is bedecked with a chilly sparsity; old orange boxes/crates populate those areas of the living room that chairs should inhabit and he has no carpets, pictures or curtains. And he constantly grumbles about the price of nails.

You’d think he was poor from the above, but oh no. He does, in fact, have lots of money but he chooses never to spend it or to give it to anybody. His Christmas present to me is barely worth mentioning here.

However, he’s had something of an epiphany this year. He seems to have changed his ways. He’s become immensely kind. He said he has been taught a lesson as to the selfishness of his ways and has told me to look forward to this Christmas as his present to me is going to be twice as good as last year’s!

Here’s my brother.
