    Default Christmas presents

    I know you're all probably sick of these threads.....but I'm struggling here. I have put off my christmas shopping as I didn't know what to buy the kids. Now, not long to go and I have sooooo many presents to buy and no time to do it. So I need to get myself a rough idea about what to get as the limited time makes it tricky to browse and I am still stuck.

    So what presents are you buying people for christmas, your kids, parents & siblings??

    It will be so helpful if you have the time (and patience) to answer
