    Tomorrow, there will most likely be a thread made with an opposite title to mine, so I'm asking - what are you giving for Christmas? Who are you giving to? I've shopped for my family, given my brother some headphones, an iTunes card and a case for his iPod, I've given my mom some CDs and books, and my dad a wireless mouse, some books, and some CDs.

    In my family, Christmas is just for the kids. I'll be spending the day with my family, sharing food, and enjoying their company.

    Amongst other things....

    My other half - an afternoon session on a skid pan. She enjoys her driving so I hope she'll love it :)

    My Dad - two-picture LCD picture frame, and Gold membership for the Bloodhound SSC supporters club.

    My Mum - Rick Stein's latest efforts

    And my step-mum's mum - she's getting the autobiog of the deaf and blind priest who ends up meeting the Pope. It's a great story, and she's a very religious lady so I'm sure she'll enjoy it.

    It was my birthday yesterday - and I got the most awesome electric shaver and a brilliant case for my iPhone - I'm very happy.

    I split my parents presents with my sister and we got my dad two DVD box sets for when he is stuck in hotel rooms, and my mom a miniStack 500GB so she can use TimeMachine with her new MacMini. Then I got my sister Super Mario 64 DS because it's a classic and she wanted it. I didn't bother getting our cat anything though.

    Merry Christmas!
