    I handed out money, like Ive been doing for years. It far and away the present that EVERYBODY loves to get. Lots of people are broke this time of year because of all the gift buying and parties etc. Ive never seen an envelope with a crisp new $100 bill inside ruin anyones xmas ;)

    I gave my mum some new oven mitts, my dad a BBQ cover and a Clash CD and bandana to my brother.

    I got some small stuff for my freinds as well...

    My fiance -
    $50 gift certificate to Impress -- a stamp/stationary store. Her hobby is making cards and paper knick-knacks.
    A sweater and jeans from the Gap
    A University of Washington Alumni sweatshirt
    Sex & the City Season 3 on DVD
    A novel -- "The Devil Wears Prada"
    An US magazine photo coffeetable book
    Stocking stuffers -- a Spa in a box, Zen garden in a box and a deck of puzzle games

    My Mom -
    A scarf
    A memory book

    My Dad -
    A sweater
    A crystal prism

    My step-Dad -
    A sweater
    A box of hankies

    My kid brothers (who are 18 & 19) -
    I gave BOTH of them:
    A hoody
    A pair of cargo pants

    My brothers' girlfriends (who are both 18)
    We gave one a pair of gloves and the other one a scarf

    My big sister and her husband -
    We gave them a glass vase

    My nephew (who's 1)
    We gave him a sweater and hat

    My Grandma -
    A home Spa facial set with meditation candle and CD

    My fiance's Mom & step-Dad -
    A Tingler scalp massager

    My fiance's big sister:
    A set of electric hair rollers

    My fiance's nephew (who's 9)
    A Pirates of the Carribean DVD

    My fiance's brother-in-law:
    An iTrip for his iPod

    I gave each of my four closest friends a gift:
    A book "Positively 5th Street" -- because he loves Vegas and gambling stories
    A book "Charlie Wilson's War" -- because he loves Tom Clancy novels, and this one is supposed to read like one (except it's non-fiction)
    A book "A Short History of Nearly Everything" -- because he's a science and history nut
    A Harley-Davidson trivia game in a real leather satchel -- because he loves motorcycles and spends his summers touring

    We gave out a few other gifts to friends -- Frangos chocolates, Starbucks gift certificates, candles, soaps and knick-knacks, and sent out X-mas cards in early December to friends, family and business associates.

    My fiance gave gifts to most of the above people in addition to the ones I listed. When I indicate "we gave" that means it was a gift from both of us.

    I hate to admit it, but I mainly gave giftcards.... It is so much easier than giving things to my family and friends that they just won't use....
