When do you start telling us that you hate receiving gifts? Do we have to wait until the first Sunday of advent?


#5

0% still haven’t even bought flights back yet

this is making me feel bad


#6

I’m at fucking 0% here Lonzy, there was a time where I’d be in the nineties by the time November rolled around. Most worrying is the fact that I’m at 0% in terms of ideas for what to buy people as well!


#7

I hope I have motivated you.


#8

Yeah sometimes it is tough. I lucked out that my wife dropped her phone down the shitter so that solved that entire problem.

The only people who are easy to buy for are kids.


#9

I was going to leave it until Christmas Eve this year for maximum awkwardness in case you’ve already bought me something.


#10

Can you at -0% if you haven’t even got any ideas yet? If so I’m -30% complete.


#11

Aye, niece and nephew will be a doddle, there’s some discussion amongst my siblings of chipping in to get my Dad a tank-driving experience day (ffs), will be some bird related stuff for me Ma, dunno for any of my siblings and am worryingly low on ideas for the gf innit.


#13

You are already taken care of:


#14

Chuck her phone down the shitter.


#15

Actually just did my first bit of Christmas shopping today.

I’d say 10%

That would literally be the second best present anyone has ever gotten me. I need a new keyring, too.


#17

poll: how many presents do you have to buy? clarification - buying multiple gifts for kid, wife = 1 present.

so, how many separate people do you have to buy presents for?
