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 Dad is a scrooge and
will always be the tightest person I have ever met. He was a lot worse when we were kids because money was tighter then, however a little in-heritence (my mums side);p has chilled him out over the years.

You know you normally get to an age, i can only speak for men here, where what you get for Christmas isn't an issue because if you really want/neeed something you just buy it right?

Anyways one Christmas my dad opened a present from family friends. The shocked look resemled someone that had been handed a large piece of shit!

"They took my present" was the first auidble sense we got out of him.

Obviously we were all a bit confused at this stage and asked him what he meant. It turns out that every year my "MUM" buys this families kids presents as well as the parents and this year they had decided to give a different sort of pressie to all our family. It happened to be a well that produced water for X amount of people in an African village. Great idea!! so you would of thought. My dad insisted that it had ruined his christmas ( yes he did realy mean this) and he hoped the kids in Africa were happy with themsleves. It was a laugh or cry moment.....we all laughed a lot and still gets mentioned every Christmas. Weirldy enough they don't see the family in question anymore, i think there dead to my dad now HAHA!
