    My stepfather and his wife have everything under to sun so I send them a Honeybaked ham every Christmas, Likewise with my Auntie I make homemade toffee for the person who does my hair and my dry cleaner. I give the super in my building a bottle of champagne and a fifty dollar bill. I give our mailman $20.00. I give my agent champagne and baked goods also.
    My other half and I bought a house in Honolulu last year and remodeled and furnished it so that was our Birthday, Christmas and Hanukkah for this year, but I did buy him a little bauble in Santa Fe to put in his stocking from Santa. I have three young people to buy for; I found some cool T-shirts and board shorts in Hawaii at a surf shop.
    We go to a open house on Christmas eve every year and there are 10 people to gift there with a 25 dollar limit. I'll either bake something and put it on a nice serving plate or buy booze.

    I'll tell you what I want for Christmas:
    A Yamaha Avant Grand upright hybrid piano.
    A digital unit that sounds, and plays, just like a grand piano.
    Only $15,000.
    I think it would be the perfect gift for a certain Aga-owning Welsh businessman to put in my stocking.
    (I only need one.)

    It's my turn this year, so I've bought thin 100% wool socks for my Dad.
    Mum will get a book, I'm thinking something by Paulo Coelho.
    The ladies in the family are getting hand woven fabrics from central Asia. That's done.
    My big brother is going to get a track day complete with motorcycle rental.
    My other brother... i dunno. A book. Or maybe a free LPSG membership. He's hung like a horse. :tongue:
    My kid, is getting my old Canon camera, a trip to Florida, some books, and some kind of special French iron roasting pot. I have to find that yet.
