I consider myself pretty lucky, and short of $500 gifts that I wouldn't dare ask for, I have just about everything I need. So, I'm trying to come up with some ideas on what to ask for this Christmas in the hundred dollar range or so. However, feel free to post a picture of whatever you're asking for- regardless of price.... I know some of you are loaded! :p

I'm asking for:

Canon 50mm 1.8 Prime:

I already made a Christmas List, so here is my PDF file of it!. :)

First a New Fur Jacket. My current one is WAY too small.

And then a Backup drive. I have desperately been needing one for a long time...

And lastly, new shoes. Mine are starting to come apart.

I really haven't. I mean, there are a few non-material items I'd love to have but they're super impossible. I think I wouldn't mind a Kindle, that'd be pretty nice. I wouldn't mind a gift certificate to Bone Fish Grill, since that is a place I love to eat though haven't returned to in over a month.

I hate being old* when it comes to Christmas. Everything I really want is over $500, because everything under $100 I really wanted I bought on my own. I can think of something that I might enjoy but if I didn't buy it myself, then I clearly don't need it and I rather they just save their money instead of wasting it on something I wont use much. :(
I want to give more to my family this year, just cant think of anything.

1.) Samsung LED, 55" 8500
2.) Picture of the new apartments around the corner from me. They're freaking way too expensive at 1400 a month for a 1 br, but I want to live there.
3.) Grad Degree. I graduated with my undergrad in May and have yet to find a job. I'd like to better myself and get a masters in Public Administration or Photography.
4.) Nikon D5000. Just getting into this and like the fact that the D5000 offers HD movies and an articulating display.


This year, I've gotten a MBP and iMac for school. A new Accord Coupe. And a roof over my head. I am very very very fortunate, but need to be able to move on in my life, hence the masters (allowing me to make my own money, hopefully with a job). All of my expenses for the last year and future 2 years was won in Atlantic City, so I'd love to do that again...Santa...

I wanted that, a Moto Droid, or even a Nokia N900. I couldn't wait for either, so I got an iPhone 3Gs last weekend. :o Overall, it's good, but there are just soooooo many limitations. :o The best thing about it is how it works with iTunes well. Otherwise, I'll probably be happy to try something else after my 2 year contract is over.


I really don't want anything else, perhaps a Wii. I'm buying myself a laptop in Feb/March next year, and perhaps another 2 week trip to Japan. None of it is for Xmas though. I'm too old for that. :o

Time Capsule is a great value. We just got one. You can back up many computers to it. 1 terabyte (we have this one) is a great model with SO MUCH space.

Well what I want is a new computer or laptop, Macbook Pro 13" if laptop, an i5 pc if desktop. Although I know either won't happen because my parents wont spend any money on me, this year they insisted an buying a bike for my brother who is in year 7 that cost over $1000 and all this other assorted expensive "gangsta" crap adding up to about $500, im going into year 11 next year which is the year when school finally becomes semi important and no MBP to help me work, no PC to help me through my software design course, the most they are willing to get me is an ipod touch, and only the 8GB one too.
Biased much?

our entire family have already discussed it and we are all adults and dont need lots of gifts. Its going to be a very small christmas. but for the most part as long as my family is together safe and healthy I am happy.

Same here. My family and I always get stressed out about gifts so we just decided to skip presents this year. It'll be a change but hopefully refreshing.

Front and rear ceramic brake pads for my Saturn Aura.

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51F2HM1OcHL._SS500_.jpg

I guess I could research this, but what benifits do ceramic brakepads provide? Heat? Dust? Stopping power?


I know how you feel, Im in Southern Canada and we haven't seen ANY snow yet. It snowed heavily when I was in Math Class and again in Science class and I was pretty PO'ed

I don't want to see it until Christmas, really =D

I am not sure about heat, but yes to dust and yes to stopping power. Also quieter. GM brakes are known to be crappy( mine are personally squealing) and a friend of mine who had a Pontiac G6 GTP( same car technically as my Aura and he has a G8 GT now) put ceramics on it and they stopped squealing.

I really don't want anything else, perhaps a Wii. I'm buying myself a laptop in Feb/March next year, and perhaps another 2 week trip to Japan. None of it is for Xmas though. I'm too old for that. :o


Scratch that. Five days later, and I now own the Wii, the new Mario game that I really really wanted, Mario Kart, and 3 other games. :) There was a fantastic sale for the thing in Australia!


I also bought this for the iPhone online today. Absolutely stunning if you see one in person, and the sound is just slightly worse than a pair monitor speakers from a decent brand. Besides, seeing that leather makes my privates all tingly. ;)

Fuji FinePix E550:
http://img33.imageshack.us/img33/4622/dscf0001li.jpg

Paid $129 for it on Mondau and put it way for Christmas-original RRP in 2004 was $499.

Also included-a Lowepro camera bag.

The FinePix E550 has a 6.3MP Super CCD HR sensor that can capture 6MP or 12MP photos-it even can capture in RAW (Fuji .raf format) and has full manual controls (as well as adjustable aperture and shutter modes).

I ordered a 2010 Camaro SS/RT, loaded with every option. I ordered silver too, with the black stripe package and ground effects.

It should be here right around Christmas.

Damn it, I definitely have to move to the US.
For the price of a fully loaded Camaro SS (about $40000), you get a Volkswagen Golf around here.
That's just not fair... :(

Parents are divorced so I get hounded by both units for gift ideas. I hate asking for things that I don't NEED (my father always scolds me, telling me Christmas is a time for things you WANT)... In anycase I ended up asking for these things:

From my mother:
- Assassin's Creed II for Xbox 360
- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD

From my father:
- Borderlands for Xbox 360
- The Witcher for PC
(after a few annoying texts and emails for more ideas)
- Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines for PSP (Thinking LBP might have been a wiser choice)
- Terminator Salvation DVD
