Black Friday: Who'd you spend on?

Just curious - I see a lot of posts about how "I got", "I scored", etc. Are you buying for you, or others? Many of us are adults (theoretically), and I have found that gift giving/receiving is odd for adults - usually if we want something, we just buy it (or save up and buy it). And many of us are pretty good dealhunters, so I don't like asking someone to pay 60 bucks for something I could find for 35.

So if you bought, either at B&M or online, for whom did you buy?

My girlfriend hates that about me. She find its so difficult to buy me gifts because I buy anything I want myself. And I always find deals. For instance I wanted Akyham City and Uncharted 3 for Christmas... Both were $30 bucks on sale. She got all stressed trying to find them. I think it takes the fun out of it for her. She'd rather just pay the extra money and not be stressed out.

This year I spent mostly on myself & the immediate family. Since I bought mostly movies on BF, they get circulated throughout the house.

I'm an adult, and while all of my BF shopping was for me, we still exchange gifts among family members and I still exchange gifts with a couple of friends.
