The only thing I specifically asked for was Skyward Sword w/ the Motion Plus controller. Besides that I just linked my wife to my Amazon Wish List. The other top items on it are an Ipod Nano, more Sandman books, new hiking boots(Land's End preferably), numerous items for my garden, and games Like Gears of war 2, Dragon Age 2, etc.
I really only prefer to get one game for Christmas, though. I get baffled when I see people's lists with so many games on them. Don't you do anything else? Go outside?
My extended family FINALLY came around and agreed to do a Secret Santa exchange this year. No more buying gifts for every single family member. That was ridiculous and stupid, and a waste of money. I got my sister-in-law, who has a 360. I bought her a couple games.
Like Hidoshi, I always give to a few charities as well. I buy a few things for Child's Play every year. I also give to the National Wildlife federation. This year, due to an awesome teacher at my sons Kindercare, I also donated a few bag fulls of items to the local daybreak shelter for the homeless. I'm trying real hard to teach my son that it's important to help out the less fortunate. I tell him that we are nowhere near rich people, but there are ton of others who are way less fortunate than we are. Alright, off the soap box. Sorry.
