It would help to know how old the kids are.

Cookies and Lotto tickets should do it.

RE: HELP ME! Christmas shopping rush time!
I'm not certain of the ages of most of my family members honestly.

As far as the kids go, I can tell you there are 12 of them, the youngest is 4, the oldest is 16 or 17, and the vast majority of them are different ages (maybe 1 or 2 "age ties").

Baking cookies is an intriguing idea....However there will already be sweets galore on the holiday so I don't know if they would be eaten before they go bad.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Teens would like gift cards for Gamestop or iTunes.

I bought Lego sets for one grand daughter who is 6. A stuffed Spiderman Mickey Mouse for the two year old boy. Younger boys still like cars and action figures. Girls like Barbies.

Coloring books and crayons are still great gifts for the younger ones.

I have a huge family, but I only go get presents for about 20% of them. But this year I am stuck. It is my first year being completely 100% independent, and I just have no idea what anybody wants (that they don't already have). I have two presents in mind, for my Mom, and my gf, but everybody else is a huge question mark.

Here is my giftee list (the 20%):
-2 brothers
-5 sisters (although one sister is currently MIA, she won't contact anybody in the family or tell us where she lives)
-my brother's live-in gf and her son
-3 brother in laws
-Mom
-Dad
-Great Aunt
-6 nieces
-6 nephews
-GF

That's 28 people! Weeping

And honestly...I can't think of a single thing that people would appreciate. I'm considering just giving all of the kids money, and giving the adult siblings $30 gift cards. I used to be against giving monetary gifts, but I can't effing think of what to get these people Sad.

Anybody else going through this? Got any good ideas for little gifts that can accompany (or replace) gift cards? I'm considering maybe getting people mugs with their names on them or something.

Help me!

please..

Give them all cards that says a donation has been made in their name to a pet shelter, food shelf, or some-such. Otherwise, Amazon is your friend.

Wait, should I actually make the donation? Or just say I did? Ohmy

Yeah, just say you did - much cheaper. Buy Lotto tickets for yourself. Thumbsup

Just buy each person a random item from this site:

Then make them all open them at the same time in the same room.
