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.

Remote control helicopters
My brother's girlfriend bought him a pair one christmas. Great fun battling each other but the most fun is to be had trying to land one on the cat. Yes I'm 38.

My dad's 48 and he fucking loves them!
He really wants a proper petrol r/c helicopter but they're too expensive to just mess about with at end up crashing, which is inevitable

If he has not got one already
Blade MSR
available here

Ideal for messing about indoors and flies much more like a 'proper petrol' heli than some of the more toyish ones out there.

Saw one of these in a shop in Camden
Was only about twenty quid. Yanked my girlfriend's arm and very gently hinted: "GET ME ONE OF THOSE FOR XMAS! GO ON! GO ON!"

I'm thirty-four.

My father-in-law is in his 70s
Two years ago his wife gave him a mini RC helicopter. Midnight on Christmas Day I was up a ladder on the garage roof trying to get the helicopter down for him, patiently explaining it was for indoor use only.

I wants the proper size petrol one
So I can sling a webcam and a transmitter on it.

Then fly it around and spy on people.

I'm getting a "my first policeman uniform" this christmas

It's going to get used rather more with that stroke of inspiration. Thank you.
