    I'm terrible at coming up with a "Christmas List" in the last few years. I've looked at hundreds of "Best Gifts for X" lists, and still don't have a list longer than 3 items. Problem is, I have my own money and buy what I want, when I can/want--and I pretty much have everything I want.

    So I hope everyone can play along, and come up with some great holiday gifts (yes, non-Apple stuff!) for people like me. Here is what I have so far....

    Lego Wall-E

    Monopoly Luxury Edition
    I love monopoly, even already have the previous wooden version, so this one is hard to justify.

    SteelSeries QCK XXL

    My list is so specialized that nobody can find the items. So I ordered two Sage Method fly rod build kits and will assemble them over the Christmas break.

    In common with almost everyone else who has posted, must admit that I love the Monopoly set. Gorgeous - I love those old wooden sets, the quality and feel of the pieces is just so much better than with modern versions of plastic. Must set about obtaining a Cluedo set (wooden) and indeed, a Monopoly set sometime.

    Agree with you both that the Monopoly set is stunning and that those old wooden boards and sets are really a pleasure to use and play with.

    Around three years ago, I bought one of those old wooden board games of Cluedo for the kids of friends of mine (and thoroughly enjoyed playing with them myself).

    A superb piece of cookware. Looks great and works exceedingly well.

    That's good to know. I thinking about getting 6.75 qt size. I'm think that size is a good medium size.

    Well, they are great - as in there is a feeling of physical pleasure - to cook with, look fantastic, and the food tastes terrific. What is there not to like? They also last forever…and are very hard wearing. Easy to clean. And make you look like a pro in the kitchen..

    My sister had a lump in her breast and had to have a biopsy done to test if it was cancerous. They took the tissue sample and it tested negative for cancer. So I already got what I wanted for Christmas.

    Glad she's okay. And yes much more important than any 'thing' you could have.

    Some rather interesting reading there: Ayann Hirsi Ali has had an extraordinary life, and that strikes me as a most interesting book. Let me know what you think of it when you have read it.

    And shoelaces are always useful.

    I have been mulling over those nice wooden box sets of both Cluedo and Scrabble. A small, German owned lovely little toy shop housed in a 16th century building currently sells them...

    In reality...I asked for nothing for Christmas. Having a 2 year old son, I am more excited to see him get exciting Christmas Morning.

    Plus, my wife and I are going to Montreal for her 30th bday and then two weeks later to Florida for 2 weeks. (we live in Northern Ontario).

    My wife on the other hand...had a Christmas list 2 pages long...which I reluctantly bought her everything on it /sucker

    Why reluctantly?

    Happy wives tend to equal a happy marriage.

    Anyway, my advice is to never begrudge a genuine gift; give it happily, or refuse to partake in the idea of purchasing it.

    For my part, anything on my own personal 'Christmas' list will have to be subsidised (by me) and I doubt that it will be delivered anywhere near December 25.

    And early gift - to myself - was acquired yesterday; the rest, I suspect, may have to wait until January.

    I wish my wife gave me a Christmas list. She's impossible to buy for.

    Recommend her to put together a wish list on Amazon. My wife says I'm impossible to buy for, so I came up with a wish list and give it to her.
