    Sony A200 DSLR for me, plus my folks are getting me a sub to a photography magazine.

    Seems that the Archos 605 has really come down in price recently presumably with the new ones that have come out. I really wanted a 605 before I saw some bad reviews about them and people sending them back etc...

    Same. If I really needed something I'd ask for it, but then if I needed it that badly I'd probably have bought it myself.
    So I dont want anything. I certainly dont want anyone going out and buying some stupid novelty gift that I "might like" and playing right into retailers hands.

    I do love Christmas (despite being an atheist) but its more about having time off and spending time with family than presents for me

    I always end up with stuff i dont use, and then feel really bad about it. That's why i usually do a list. It's not as much fun as a suprise, but at least you're getting what you want.

    I buy myself anything technical wise I need during the year, leaving nothing for others to get me.

    So will just ask for the usual aftershave, socks, shower gel and stuff that I generally just get at xmas and it lasts the year.

    edit: And someone better get me a selection box this year!

    Sorry to be even more of a grinch but selection boxes annoy me too!

    Nothing wrong with chocolate of course but it just seems wasteful putting it in a huge plastic tray 3 times the size of the stuff. I have the same gripe with easter eggs

    same here, I'm always told I'm hard to buy for as anything I want, I usually go get it pretty soon after I discover I want it

    I usually get shirts, socks, shower gels and whatever the new latest shaving craze is from Gillette (fusion Pro vibrating razor which sings to you in the shower or something )
