Well today I found out I'm getting also Toiletries, Money, Booze and to be honest I'm still thinking of asking for a New \ Second Hand Desktop due to the Fact I'm hungry for tech and I love doing refurbishments \ Fault finding and playing with old Kit.

Nothing.
It's not because I am pagan and technically I should not be celebrating Christmas. It's because I am sick of the commercialism and how people feel that they need to get me some thing and that I need to get them some thing back.

I agree man.. the thoughts of failing someone because you cant get something nice often leads to depression which is why there is a spike of suicide rates near the holiday season. :/ Its really sad :'(

My wife and I buy for family (our mothers, our daughter, son-in-law, grandkids, her sister, brother-in-law, nephew, each other). She bought some small stuff for a few at church, and that's about it. We used to buy for friends but we have all drifted apart over the years.

Got a lot of stuff from my parents that I did not need. I see a lot of it going into charity or the bin.
On a good side, both my GF and I agree to get ourselves a Playstation 4. Managed to talk to the guy in the store at got a PS4 with GTA5 and FarCry4 at a really good price. Topped it with Assassin's Creed Unity and Infamous Second Son
