Post what kind of presents you will get for your family and friends this year and discuss/rate the other ideas.

It's that time of the year again, I'd like to buy presents for friends and relatives but in some cases I don't have any good ideas. I know I am supposed to think about something original myself and so on, but usually I end up buying a book which isn't exactly original.

So post what you think is a good present, also include for whom (little brother, girlfriend etc.) this present is supposed to be.

No presents at all! That sure will come as a suprise... :p

Alernativly you could buy them (brother or girlfriend doesn't matter) some cups or glass depending on what he/she drinks the most. If somebody is totally obessed with coffee you can buy them a coffeecup with a nice print. If somebody is obessed with a drink you could buy the approperiate glass to go with it (two or more so you can drink together).

You could by them a ticket (a coupon worth one free entry) to something they like (a amusement parc, cinema, carting etc.).

What about clothing?

Hey I havent done anything with Christmas since... well never I think. We have Sinterklaas hier (5 December) and that only is for kids. :p

Drinks? Parfume? Subscription to some sort of Magazine? A movie, game or album? What else? Flowers/plants?

What about a day or weekend out to some place? A small trip to an other city might fun for your girlfriend.

I havent thought about christmas once. :p I know I won't be getting anything expensive maybe just a DVD or something, entirely depends on what you can afford if you have the cash and get hold of one try and get a Xbox 360 that would be a ideal present for a big or little brother. :)

[QUOTE=ßeef Flaps]Your budget?

Not too much, between 10 and 100 Euro per present. But if you have an idea which I really like I would invest more in some cases (up to about 400).

Can I give you some advice? Leave it until the last minute if you can. That's what I do (not usually deliberately, of course). It's a tradition of mine, really -- it just isn't Christmas until you've fought through crowds of angry Christmas Eve shoppers to wrestle the last copy 'Lesbian Mud Wrestlers go to The Chocolate Factory Pt 2' from some fat dude. If you know the people you're buying presents for, you should already know what they like. Searching for advice from people who don't know them is rarely a good idea. 'Cause we don't know them. Everybody's different, and you can't really generalise. For instance, my mother would be happier with a toolkit than anything else, which I doubt is what most people would buy their mothers. Now, you could just buy them cups with pretty pictures on, but if you can get them more personalised, individual presents it'll show more thought and they'll be more appreciated.

Yes, buying at the last minute is always a lot of fun. I try to avoid it every year - but in vain.

You are of course right with the rest of your advice, I just thought it would be interesting to know what other people regard as a good present. And I wouldn't mind if I see some original idea I never would have thought about :)

CDs...but something personal is best always...

It can be book, but then it has to be something they really would enjoy.
