Christmas Gift Idea Help
Having trouble thinking of Christmas gifts for a couple of people, and I need your help not to give out shitty presents again. First, and most difficult, my father. Here are the highlights.
  • Likes American History/Historical Biblical Stuff/Science
  • Has every damn war movies and documentary ever made on American History
  • He is a Fundie
  • Nothing Remotely Sexual
  • Nothing Alcohol Related
  • Nothing Tobacco Related
  • No real hobby to speak of
  • Looking to spend around 20-30 bucks
  • Nothing that involves anything 'excessive' cursing, and no fucks or god dammits allowed
Baby brother
  • He's 12
  • Likes Video Games
  • Likes History
  • Likes Star Wars
  • Everything must be pretty clean too
  • Looking to spend about 20-50 bucks
  • Gun Stuff (nothing larger that a .22)
Wife
  • Loves typical girly stuff like purses and clothes and whatnot
  • Loves Penguin stuff
  • Loves Cat Stuff
  • Loves Reading and watching Love/Romance type stuff
  • Looking to spend about 75-150 bucks
Any ideas are appreciated.

RE: Christmas Gift Idea Help
There is a whole series of books by Rick Beyer, published by The History Channel that are pretty good. I got some for my dad through Amazon. Even the hardcovers are under $10.00 each and there are a bunch of subjects.

I used to also get dad boxes of Jelly Belly candy for occasions. He liked them though he wouldn't have bought them for himself.

For the twelve year old, I can't help much as I am sure things have changed a lot since my baby was that age...he's 25 now and my grandkids aren't that old yet.

For your wife, I don't know about her but I want to pick out my own purse, clothes, etc. However jewelry is almost always a win!
I know I appreciated the earphones I got a couple years ago, as well as the JBL Ipod dock/clock for me to take to work. Of course the year before that was the actual Ipod.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

For dad: I'm assuming he's old school, so I'd go with some nice hemp papers, and a nice wood pipe.

Little bro: well, he's just a kid. Keep those lungs pink. Get him started off right with a vaporizer.

Wife: It's usually a safe bet to get her something that shows you want to be with her. Something you can enjoy together. I'd go with a two hose hookah.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

My sisters are all getting Jebus toasters this year. I've had a hard time not blabbing.
