I had to save, save, and save. Wasn't easy. Remember how I was always thinking about going for a new PC build? I never did
. A lot of that money went towards Christmas funds and more. My parents are getting older so I kind of want them to experience some high end stuff. That TV wasn't as expensive as it sounds. I paid less than $800 at Best Buy for that sucker. Specwise, it isn't top of the line. But for the price and the size, it'll do for him. He's not picky.
The iPod Touch is just so cool. I'll never get one for myself because why? I swear I would never use or buy an Apple product for myself. NEVER. I'm stubborn that way. Reason? None. Not an Apple fan, as you can tell already. Even though the iPod Touch is nice, I'll let my mom have all the fun. I have other things I'm interested in.
The monitor for my sister is drop dead cheap. Got that for less than $100. I don't have a big family. Very small--that's about it (those listed above).
Friends, meh, they can get gift baskets, lol. Gift cards, etc.
