Default Are people asking what you want for Christmas?

I hate getting the question "what do you want for Christmas". I never know what to ask for. Thought maybe a thread on Christmas ideas might be interesting. Someone might have an idea that I'd love but hadn't thought of.

Here's my contributions.

Top Gear Magazine! My wife has subscribed me to this for the last two years. It's expensive as hell but the magazine reads the same as the show. Same attitude. Great reviews, lots of editorial. Car reviews are very different than the US mags. Not much for stats it's all about attitude and editorial. Brilliant.

BBC Top Gear Magazine - Magazines - Magazines

Grassroots Motorsports and Classic Motorsports magazines. Most guys here know of these and subscribe but there's likely quite a few who don't. Great car mags for guys like us. Tips, tricks, reviews and info that DIY Miata people and enthusiasts can actually use. Affordable subscription compared to Top Gear and something I look forward to receiving every month. (almost - I think they publish 10-11 issues a year)

I got what I wanted: complimentary round-trip airfare for me and the wife and kid to Jacksonville. Between that and the iPhone (and promotion..) I got for my birthday I'm set. My family isn't really doing a gift exchange this year.

Yeah but you live there. We in the US don't get enough of that pithy brit humor.

My family members and I all have a mutual non-gift pact - I figure the best gift I can give is saving you the time and money trying to find something for me.

My wife and I are working on giving ourselves a house, so that covers a lot of gifts for a lot of occasions.

"Plenty"? Is that something like enough?

I don't really want anything. I may ask for something like Band of Brothers Blu-Ray. Maybe some other Blu-Ray series. Nothing big. I don't like buying or receiving gifts very much. I always tell my friends I'm not buying you **** so don't buy me anything. Bah Humbug...

Eehhh I usually don't ask for anything. Me and my siblings get my mother something and that is about it.

I'm kinda the same way...I mean if I want something I'm just going to buy it myself...there's not one thing someone could get me that I would want or need...

If you get B or B, send me your disc. I'll have Don Malarkey sign it for you. He's a close family friend.
