Well lets see:

My 13 year old daughter

1. Kindle Touch
2. Case for Kindle
3. 10 ebooks
4. Coraline BD 3D
5. Justin Bieber Never Say Never BD

15 Year old Son:

1. Vmoda Crossfade Headphones
2. Dead Island
3. Batman AC
4. Nero CD
5. Custom ear plates for Headphones

My ex wife:

1. Fuck that bitch.


This is the first year my kids tell me they really don't want everything, I don't spend like $800 on each of them. Guess I spoil them too much.

With the kid, just a bunch of hot wheels stuff. He's too young to really want big stuff. The wife and I decided against Christmas gifts for each other, since we are going to be doing a closet organization installation soon and that'll cost a couple of grand.

You do realize that she still expects a gift right? Otherwise you'll be hearing about the Christmas she got a closet as a present for the next 50 years.

My wife is not like other women. I don't get her anything on our anniversary either and she doesn't buy me anything either. We decided long ago that we will only celebrate the big milestone anniversaries (5, 10, etc.). We have everything we need, so gifts are sort of pointless. We are focused on spending money on home improvements and saving for kids college.

I assume you have a prenup and a close relative who's a lawyer?

I'm boring. I always get gift cards because I don't want to bother figuring out what everyone wants.

We've been married more than 4 years and not a single gift on anniversaries and I'm still married. Plus, she makes much more than I do, so she'd have to pay me! Ha!

Is it your money? No so who gives a fuck what I spend on it. I am sorry your life is so pathetic you feel the need to comment on what other people do with their expendible income.

Wrong number of letters, try again.


Besides, if anyone wanted a tranny for Christmas, it would be me. I want one for my car.

I had a hard time thinking of one for my wife this year... but I'm happy with what I ended up with. We've pretty much done away with adult presents in our immediate family and find more productive ways to spend our money together over the holidays. But my wife and I do buy one small gift for each other to open with the kids.

She's the dessert lover in the family and I rarely take the time to make a real dessert. We already have plenty of cookbooks and things bookmarked to try, but have never gotten around to making them. We also try to keep desserts occasional for obvious health reasons.

I got 2 individual serving baking dishes and 2 dessert plates to wrap, and each week in January she can choose one fancy dessert recipe for me to prepare for us to enjoy together in the evening, or she can let me choose the recipe if she wants it to be a surprise.

:lol: Someone's awfully defensive about their $2000 closet.

I'm getting my wife a pair of slippers and a dildo. That way, if she doesn't like the slippers she can go f$ck herself.

My dad is the hardest person to shop for. Forget entertainment. He doesn't care for most movies, doesn't read books. In fact, the only thing he really likes to watch on tv is freaking RFDTV! He has as a woodworking shop, and already owns every tool under the sun.

Thank goodness for Amazon's bestseller list. I found the coolest stuff to buy him yesterday. Here is one of the items I got:

Always check your local trainstation for specials on trannies first!
