Damn! I was going to say sex, to any woman that's interested...I was beaten to the punch.
Anyway, I haven't thought too much about about what I'm getting for people - I usually wait until Christmas eve.
I did get my parents a gift certificate for dinner at a swanky restaurant and tickets to see 'Jim Brickman and Friends' for a Christmas concert on Sunday...My dad is a big fan!

Anyone come across any good funny gifts? One year I got my dad a piece of fudge that looked like a cow pie. My friend Niels got me a bingo game when I became Catholic. Or maybe it was a flask.

Most probably nothing, as I've got nothing to give now but my life. And that's all MINE!! :evil: :evil:
Actually, I was tempted to make a Wham! reference here.

Hmm, I have been considering buying my uncle some kitchen knives and a knife sharpener. I've been here for 3 weeks and the only thing I've found annoying is the quality of these knives. When I pick up a knife, I intend to be able to cut the end of my finger off with limited effort (Random Babbling 15).

Mainly because I'm too stingy to buy anything expensive.

I'm the only Christian in my family(make in Singapore, an Asian country), so no celebration at home. But I will be celebrating with my friends. I hardly do such stuffs like exchanging presents. So can anyone help me think of a suitable present(for 20 year old, low-budget type, as my friends had decided that this will do).
