    Default The Official Christmas Thread

    Just like the title states(someone as gonna make it eventually). All things christmas related are in here, including tips on what to get and everything else not stated that comes with christmas.


    as for me, i need help with these two things....

    my secret santa person is my grandpa....and i have ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE WHAT TO GET HIM. He's old, very traditional, smokes (i hate it), and thats about it...haha.

    and the other thing is my sister. She's helped me out A LOT and i mean A LOT. =( I feel so bad at times since she goes out of her ways to help me and stuff. Like recently, she just bought me 4 new tires for my car and at the same time gave me $300 bucks to go buy a new jacket. I really needed new tires, my rear sets were bald....and as for the jacket, i didnt need a new one. She just told me to get a new one. Why? I'm not sure, but she still gave it to me...and so I want to do something special for her. For christmas or even before, i dont care, but i really really want to do something nice for her.

    Any ideas or tips for either one would be nice. Thanks in advance.

    For your grandpa: a Zippo lighter, or a chess set. One of those nice ones, mind. Not the plastic crap that they sell at K-Mart.

    For your sister: I don't know, how old is she? I'm thinking relatively old since she can afford to give you money. Take her out to dinner at a nice restaurant? I don't have any experience with older siblings, sorry.

    For your sister, make her a homemade cheesecake. It's simple to do while at the same time really delicious. Buy a crust at Safeway and follow the instructions on the packaging to make a fucking tasty gateau du fromage.

    For your grandpa, make him a scrapbook or photo album of pictures you two took together. Old people like nostalgia.


    Hm, I've got a question of my own. My friend's birthday is the day after Christmas, and I promised her I'd take her out for it; but I have no idea where to take her and what to do.
    (yes, she is a potential candidate for Mrs. Mojo)

    Zippo lighter ?? Too much hassle with those (I got one for 30$ but I don't use it).
    A good book or brandy for your grandpa, that's what I buy mine.

    Perfume for sister ;p

    Depends what your grandpa smokes, cigarettes, cigars or pipe but find out what he likes to drink too, thats a good suggestion.

    Uhhh. Should I just PM you asking what type of person she is, or are you gonna give some more info publicly, cause theres not much we can help you with specifically just for that. Food is always good though. Always.

    I have presents planned I just don't know who I'm going to give them to. And they're not completely bought or completely handmade either.

    I'm assuming this is like a suit jacket and not like a rain jacket since she gave you 300 bucks for it, I would say take her out somewhere where you could wear the jacket to show that is isn't in a closet collecting dust and that the money was well spent.

    A winter hat (EMS, Northface, J.Crew) or nice fitted cap ($30-40, Lids, coolfitted.com ),
    long underwear! (it's getting cold-in fact, why not a warm pair of gloves?),
    warm warm slippers ($60)
    a unique, possibly sentimental necklace (for me anything not too flashy or dog-collar-y is good),
    a mad nice tie (ones that are around $90-$130 and think more about how it feels and the width than the pattern),
    really comfortable designer jeans (Rock&Republic, Ralph Lauren, or even Levi's),
    sneakers! (Stores in Boston: The Tannery, Bodega, A.W.O.L., Karmaloop...)
    ----------------
    Gadgets/Hobby stuff:
    A GOOD BOOK (goes a long way, there's something out there for everybody- my favorites included Bringing Down the House or Amarillo Slim's biography [they're both cardgame/poker-related], Freakonomics or Blink, Anthony Keidis' biography (lead singer of the Chili Peppers- crazy book...),
    A magazine subscription to anything (usually $20),
    Concert/sports game tickets!,
    Nice cigars (if they smoke and are legal of course),
    anything hard-to-find: DVD, posters, vinyl, old school toy, foreign beer (again, if they drink and are legal )
    collectors editions!
    a cute, unique goldfish! ($35)
    Nice snowboarding goggles or gloves ($100),
    Bomb Headphones,
    ROCKBAND (just the game is like $60, with all the instuments is way more..)
    ---------------
    Stuff you can make with your own two hands!:
    A picture/scrap book about a first something (for those significant others),
    self-sewn anything (pillow, blanket, not sweater),
    mix cds (for real i love these),
    Decordated One Free ___ cards (for example, "One Free Meal with me Card")
    HOMECOOKED MEALS OH MY GOODNESS YES
    I did a bunch of shopping here: http://www.threadless.com/

    I bought these shirts:
