    So...Nearly Christmas And Hows The Present Buying Going?

    As the majority of posters on here are guys,and it kinda goes without saying that shopping is not a favourite pastime of your sex...how do you all find Christmas shopping for your girlfriends/wives/mistresses? ... do you rely on hints from them,or are you spectacularly brilliant when it comes to choosing the right gift for her at Christmas?...do you find it all a hastle and a stress.. and what have you got her this year?...

    Or do you not bother at all and just become a scrooge at Christmas and let it all pass you by?.....

    (This thread was in part inspired by Burgey,making comment that he wasn't intending to buy a Pandora bracelet for his wife and was opting for a Rabbit instead....shall be interested as to all the male CW's posters gift buying ideas for their other halves!!)....

    Would like to do the Scrooge. Can I just say here - **** Christmas and everyone who's excited by it - apart from my kids.

    Bought presents today, and an unpleasent, annoying exercise that cost me money I can't afford it was too.

    My wife has bought all the presents for the kids, my family and her family.

    All I need to do is get something for her which Ive not started to think about yet. Plenty of time though

    I bought her a netbook for her birthday 2 weeks ago so whatever I buy it will not be tech related.

    I hate present-buying at Christmas with a passion. I'd much rather no one got me anything and I didn't have to worry about getting anyone else anything. There's a switch in attitudes from "he bought me a present, what a guy" to "he didn't buy me a present, what an asshole" or even "he bought me a crap present, what an asshole". Giving and receiving gifts isn't the same when it's so socially unacceptable not to.

    I quite like Christmas in general but on a personal level I never enjoy it. The mother always gets stressed over it and throws a trademark tantrum, there's nothing open for me to do and I have a very small family so there's not really anyone to spend it with. Boxing day ftw.

    Been abusing Amazon this Christmas. Bought some of my gifts over the weekend, half of them arrived this morning from Amazon, and I just need to buy one more. It's all coming together nicely. Wrapped them all this morning too, because it's the best way to hide them from my family and gf.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Have got Mum and Dad sorted, just need to make a trek to the local shopping mall for my brother. Properly proud of my dad's present too; we've got a full sized snooker table and he'd mentioned a while ago that he'd like having a set of pool balls for it too so my brother and I have chipped in to get him some off ebay.

    As an estranged dad I was a bit stressed about Xmas as I have no idea what to buy girls of nearly three and seven. Alas, I somehow manoeuvred some sort of deal whereby me and the ex are going 'halves' on the presents, epic win.

    Payday tomorrow so will buy some stuff for the folks and sibilings. Thinking alcohol for the adults, and a DVD for my kid bro, easy

    Hate it, tbh.
