    Got my brother G1 Reissue Perceptor and a couple sets of collectible toy tractors.

    Mom so far I got her Disney's Mickey's Christmas Carol; I'm going to see about getting her either Up or G-Force, plus see about renewing her subscription to Southern Living

    Dad so far I got him a toy tractor, and I'm going to try and order a couple of tractor videos.


    That's about it.

    I saw "Bob Evans" and immediately thought "Indiana". And then I looked at your location.

    Anyway, I'm not giving anything. And I don't think I'll be receiving anything either. That's how it is most Christmasses. I did buy some donuts 2 nights ago for everyone to have, so that almost counts.

    Cool, nice to see a "giving" thread, finally. I enjoy giving presents a lot more than getting them and it's something I work on throughout the year. My list:

    Grandparents - Each set of grandparents got a 7" digital picture frame loaded with a memory card containing over 700 picture of Atlanta, taken by me.

    Parents - Multiple items, including:
    - Digital frame, as noted above.
    - Various Atlanta souvenirs (clothing, trinkets, etc), since they like Atlanta stuff and I'm moving soon.
    - Various Emory University clothing items and souvenirs, since they like Emory stuff and I'm graduating soon.

    Toys for Tots - Already dropped off my donations for this year:
    - 5x Target-exclusive TFA Sunstorm/Ratchet two-packs, 1x TFA Shockwave/BB two-pack
    - 5x WM-exclusive RotF Skywarp, 2x RotF Ramjet
    - 2x TFU Optimus Prime waterguns
    - 1x RotF Bruticus Maximus
    - 12x The Dark Knight basic 5" action figures.

    Yeah, but I figured you had to visit one in person to get the card. Although, I suppose you could've done it online too.

    Ebay:
    My family doesn't really buy anything for the holidays, as we're a big bunch of atheists who'd rather spread the gift-giving out around the year. But anyway, I picked up...

    Sister: Headphones ($110)
    Dad: Slowly upgrading his computer, most recently with new speakers and an LCD monitor arm.
    Mom: Dad and I will probably get her a new digital camera, as she's been using her current one for at least 6 years.

    I also wrapped Christmas presents for my buddy at work, and in return he gave me an old 2.5" 80 gig hard drive!
