Good point. So hard to find the right gift for that special person.

Still, for anyone who hasn't done your shopping yet, heres a easy suguestion.

Gift cards.

I just usually give people money if I can't find anything for them, lol. I guess it takes away the meaning of getting a present for them because it makes it less personal, but if I can't find anything for them, surely they'd be better off getting what they want with my money?

That's probably what I'll end up doing for him. Lowe's, Home Depot, etc. Easy.

Gift cards are pretty much the easiest way to give for someone that has a hard time deciding what they want (my older sister for example) . I've yet to buy her one though, but I will!

A cool thing I used to do was get something that the person and I can do together, like movie tickets or something. Good times and memories are better than money.

Though sometimes money is pretty ok too.

Money and gift cards are always great gifts. It would be great to get money but nah... I get other things than money. Last christmas I got one movie ticket but I didn't use it.

"Aww! How cute! You got me some money!". What the hell man. Is that supposed to be a Christmas gift?

Then again, I haven't got X-mas gifts for years, so I should just keep silent and watch.

Money is the best gift, lol. Why get you something you might like when they can get you money and allow you to get yourself something you will like?

That might be true, but I feel like in the end it doesn't really matter whether you like what you get or not, but about how that person thought about you and picked something for you. That alone should be enough to make you like the object you get, because it becomes personal. Money is just money.

Because I have a lowly opinion about money, and because as you said, I will use it to satisfy myself. When I receive a gift, I don't expect to get something to satisfy me, I expect to get something that will have a meaning coming from the person giving it to me.
If I receive money, it's like they're telling me to 'do whatever you want.'

And I agree with Yoshikkko.

I'd rather get money rather than some oddball gift that I'll never use anyway. I can't count how many tacky talking singing Christmas ornaments I've gotten... Or DVDs of movies that I have absolutely no interest in watching.

Besides it's not like I can tell my relatives that I'd really rather get anime... they wouldn't even know what it is or where to start looking for it.

So I'll gladly take the money any day. Anything I can use to bulk up my bank account is appreciated.

If I could get anything, I'd want gift cards so I could buy something I'd want and use instead of getting something I'd may never use...

I like actually having a gift I can open on Christmas morning, always have. Something to play with or something I can just mess around with like a Phone or an Ipod. XD

I'm the same as Nick...actual gifts are so much nicer than gift cards or money. There's more thought put into gifts, and it's just a lot more fun to have something you can use or fiddle around with right then instead of go buy later.

I was going to get my sister a gift card to Target originally, but when out christmas shopping last week I found these coffee mugs that I thought she'd like alot more, so I just bought them. She'd enjoy a gift card too, but I agree the gift I bought her was more thoughtful.

A gift is certainly more thoughtful, as if you get it right it shows that you pay attention when they gush about their interests.

I get what depending on what they give. If they give gift cards, I'll give 'em a gift card. If they take the time to get me a hand-selected or special gift, I'll do the same for them. People rarely change how they treat Christmas, so this system's been workin' for me.

Now, if only I could get a new scarf...

I've bought one present today and it's for my 2 year old nephew. No one else told me what they wanted as a gift. This bugs me sooo much! My family doesn't seem to care.

My big brother is too broke this month but he's mad that his girlfriend is still spending money they don't have. Grabbing that charge card. :B Is it okay to go all out on Christmas for the little ones? Don't know...

Then just leave it. They probably would rather that you save your money and help secure your future a bit more. That's how my parents feel - they actually get angry when I buy them gifts, haha.

Yeah, I'd be mad with her too. She's a fool for using it, because it'll only cost them more in the end.

If you have the money and have no qualms on engaging in soulless consumerism, go for it! :D
