    I hope to stick to my gift card idea posted above and not have to deal with crowds.
    I cant tell you how happy I was when I realized that most grocery stores have gift cards for other places there. I dont always have time to run from store to store, so that makes it REAL convenient.

      I know!!! I purchased an Old Navy and Sears gift Card at my grocery store last week for bday presents.

      Greatest concept!!!!

        I think gift cards are a cop out. To be honest though, I would rather get a gift card than half the crap I get every year...

        Best Buy is the Snickers of gift cards for me!
        Be controversial

        Be outspoken

        Be outrageous

        Just don't be boring

          Cop out yes...

          But it saves a lot of time and aggravation for the gift giver and recipient~

            My cousins and brother specifically ask for gift cards. And, when we do the gift exchange in my family, its always gift cards.

              You know I used to think that about gift cards too, but my kids LOVE them. Itunes gift cards are the way to my oldest son's heart and my little one likes Barnes & Noble or Target. Home Depot is like an insta-tent for my husband. Best Buy is a close second.

                My family does a grab bag amongst the adults every year... We usually pick our names on Thanksgiving since we all get together that day.

                On our paper we have to write down about 4 things we would like so the person has an idea of what to buy...

                Everyone always puts gift cards to:

                Target, Best Buy, Old Navy, Bath&Body Works or Sears



                Hence, I am sticking with my gift card idea :lol:

                            Still working on ideas of what people would like to see under the tree this year. My sister is getting a Crown Royal quilt and my mom may get a new tree skirt. Just found that my sister's BF is addicted to Otter Pops so I'll have to round up a box of those just for fun.

                            My daughter loves gift cards. Target is her fav, although the one for the mall works well too. Teenagers, go figure. lol

                            Enjoying the warmth and sunshine of Phoenix between Disney trips.

                                Okay, so do you get a kickback just from these items? What if I need to go out into the big world of Amazon? Can I tell you what I want and then you put them in the MiceChat store so you CAN get kickbacks?

                                    I went to Costco today to get the tent/tunnel/teepee thingy for the twins and was thrilled to see they have the huge containter of Tinkertoys for just $30 -- it has twice as many in it as the one at Toys R Us for the same price! Two gifts down!

                                      Have you ever been to South Coast Plaza the day after Thanksgiving? "Good gosh" is all I can say. I park valet from Thanksgiving through Christmas there - otherwise I won't be able to park.
