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.

This year
I've got a bad habit of buying the little things I want, when I want, so that there's never anything (within reason) that I can suggest people get me when xmas or birthdays roll around. This year I'm trying something new.

I have bought some pictures to liven up the walls in my house, and given them to my parents to get framed for me, the (to specification) framing being as a present. An optional second present can be the cost of the prints, if someone wants to offer that.
I've also bought a Logitech G13 keypad and am going to wrap it up for myself, and whoever is stuck for an idea can deposit the appropriate amount in my bank and gets to write their name in the "From" box. (I bought this myself rather than making it a suggested present as I figured I could find it cheaper than most relatives, and the like! Has been sitting here unopened and tempting me for a good week now, though...)
I'm hoping this will work out well, anyway, and might try and encourage others to do the same. It will avoid disappointment, unwanted gifts and also the inevitable "compromise" presents, where you ask for one thing, and a well-meaning gift-giver gets you something similar, just not what you wanted. Yes I'm thinking of this here ;) www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCUqlM65osc
