I asked for these:
George Orwell books - Nineteen Eighty Four, Animal Farm (read both but want my own copies)
Microsoft Sidewinder X4 keyboard (gonna have to rethink that one as they seem to be out of production and there are idiots trying to charge £800 for them on Amazon)
Perixx MX-2000 mouse
Soundmagic E10 earphones
Dremel multi tool (to replace the cheap no-brand one I have finally given up with)
The Last of Us - PS3
Kurushi Final PS1
Rocksmith 2014 with Real Tone Cable (PC version)
Teenage Dirtbags Compilation (CD)
Hipe Waterproof Bluetooth Stereo Shower Speaker
To be fair though I'm not expecting all of that for xmas, I keep a constant list on Google Drive that I add things I really want to, that way when I have a bit of money I can refer back to it and buy something I really want rather than blowing it on some silly impulse purchase (although it must be said, I still do that far too often!)

My mother is a camera enthusiast - so much so she's doing it professionally now! She often travels the length of the country to photograph weddings. Therefore the ideal present, I thought, was a travel mug/thermos shaped like a Canon camera lens (other brands are available, but she uses a Canon). Also I'm getting her an Amazon gift card, as she does a lot of reading and has a Kindle.
I have two housemates. One of them is often the butt of 'forever-alone' type jokes as he's more-than-a-little socially awkward (but he knows it's all in friendly jest). Therefore the only appropriate presents for him are a book titled 'Images you shouldn't masturbate to' and a box rather tastefully labelled 'W*nk Wipes'.
My other housemate I have no clue what to get him. He's an avid anime fan but I don't know what he likes as I'm not really that into it. Also quite the gamer, but already has plenty of gaming merch.
My mother's husband, I'm not so sure what to get either. We get on well, but I just have no clue. He runs his own network consultancy business, so he's a big geek, but doesn't really do gaming and already owns a Raspberry Pi. I have no idea what to get him.

Have no idea what to get my parents (divorced so split over two days) and my brothers.
As for me just a book and a record and I'll be all set.

Great choices, both, but my favourite books are Mervyn Peake's 'Gormenghast Trilogy' and David McKee's 'I Hate My Teddy Bear!'
