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.

Oooh, just remembered one from a few years back.
We had a Secret Santa thing at work, and the guy that drew my name out of the hat absolutely fucking hated me. With a passion. Every day him and I would exchange harsh words and HR just let us get on with it.
It was well known how much we hated each other.

That Christmas, our company had done well, so we were flown out to the HQ in Arizona (including wives/husbands/partners etc) for the annual Xmas bash.

The budget for the Secret Santa was $10.

The guy who picked me..who fucking hated my guts...bought me a beautiful leather-bound edition of the Complete Works of Shakespeare which I know cost him closer to $100. He'd asked around my co-workers asking what I liked and they all came up with "reading...she reads a lot".

I had tears in my eyes when I opened that, and most of my coworkers were also a bit flabbergasted. I'm still friends with him to this day :)

Edit: And for my boyfriends Christmas present, I just bought tickets to fly out and see his son in Arizona in March for 4 nights. He'll like that.
