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.

Gifty time
Giving is better than receiving and I love love love giving gifts. But this year I am torn. Money and my presents at present time are going to be a problem this year.

I have always prided myself for being quite good at gifties. I use a simple strategy – Think about the person, think what kind of things they like then buy something like that. For example my younger brother likes gaming – buy him a game or should I say I am a bit soppy last year I bought him a selection of the newest releases for the Xbox 360 I have just bought him. My sister amongst other things she likes clothes get her a load of vouchers, CD’s and a printer for her computer. My mother likes handbags; buy her something very expensive to keep her purse, fags and lighter in and some vouchers for shoes to go with new handbag.

However, Mr Freepens and I are going to visit his family this year, this will be the first time I will have met his family. So, this has meant paying for some very expensive flights (easyjet are [email protected]@rds) and we were sadly lacking of one. So, we got a new camera too. As a result, this has left me (more than him) skint.

So, this year Mr Freepens is getting the gift of love. My brother playing cards, my sister some socks or tights (I haven’t made my mind up yet), my mother a Tesco bag for life.

Mr Freepens family – a selection of typically stuff – a box of biscuits, a bottle of whisky and bath stuff.

And what do I want? For the first time in my life I want for nothing I am happy with all I have - I love my family, I love my man and I look forward to meeting my new extended family.

I’m hoping a jolly fat man or three kings will be popping round to make up for the fact I have spent all my money on myself!

Off topic slightly, but would like to agree with your sentiments of EasyJet being a big pile of wank. I'm in a similar position (my lass is Estonian) so meeting her family for new year and got shafted by those bastards. Theyclaim to be your friend, then sell you out for 30 pieces of osilver and make you sit in a seat that is far less comfy than being nailed to a cross.
