    Default Christmas presents

    Mum and inlaws: donation to Australian Lutheran world service (gift of grace ). They get a card telling them where their Xmas money went (eg: supplies for a school in Cambodia, buying chickens for a family in Indonesia etc). I love giving these because they never want anything but this way they get to give something to someone needy.

    Sister: Chinese medicine balls (she asked for them)

    Brother: camping lantern

    DS: flashing light saber, Star Wars transformer figures

    DD: kindy bag and lunchbox, dolls head (the ones where you can do their hair and makeup etc)

    God daughter: friends Lego

    God son: Star Wars Lego and Ben 10 pjs

    Teenage niece and nephew: money

    10 year old niece: lip smacker gift set and smiggle pens

    DH: fishing chair

    Santa: pjs, books, skylanders figurines, craft kits.

    Default Christmas presents

    DP - a book she has been wanting since it was released in Oct. David Attenborough box sets, Glee season 3 and Hagrids Hut collectible lego.

    SIL + BIL - a voucher prolly for big W

    Their kids
    9yo niece, monster high doll
    6yo niece, Belle (from beauty and the beast) doll
    3yo nephew, Thomas block set
    1yo nephew, one of the leapfrog stuff toy things that you squeeze their paw and they sing and stuff

    Other SIL, regifting a bath stuff set my DP was given last year and already had one.
    All of her kids get clothes (she has 4 as well) as I refuse to buy them toys for them to destroy (the oldest hacks things with scissors and stuff) the budget for them is slightly higher than the other kids as the other kids get birthday pressies and this lot don't.

    DS- a Wii, Skylanders, Mario Kart Game, Sports Resort + Wii accessories, a bike, socks, jocks, pjs, Skylanders top, 3 board shorts, magicians box of tricks, jokes book, another book and a magazine, Air-zooka, water balloon sling shot, yoho diabolo, snorkel set, water pistol, jelly bean dispenser + stocking stuffers.
    P.S. Don't ask why there are 2 huge presents in there, it's a long story.

    The family- I actually got them all a voucher to go to an adventure park. I've been planning it for 6 months or so and have sent round numerous msgs to keep a certain day free so we can all go as a family. I've stuck this voucher on a water pistol for my 3 nephews, bubble guns for my 2 nieces and chocolate stockings for my Mum, Dad, siblings and their partners.

    Adult family friends- big box of chocolates, big box of jelly beans, cheese and platter set, scarf, another family adventure park pass

    Kids family friends- clothes for babies, stockings for voucher receivers, lightning mcqueen travel drawing case, itunes card, stationary and craft
