I'm getting these games in the next few weeks: Super Mario 3D Land (3DS) The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii) Mario Kart 7 (3DS)
Therefore, this is my Christmas Wishlist for 2011: Assassinís Creed Revelation (PS3) Batman Arkham City (PS3) Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (PS3) Fable III (X360) Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary (X360) Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (PS3) Mortal Kombat (PS3) Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Blu-Ray) Supernatural Season 2 (Blu-Ray) Supernatural Season 6 (Blu-Ray) Supernatural: The Anime Series (Blu-Ray)
I'm not getting anywhere near all of this, of course. The titles I want the most are in blue. The rest I can get for myself next year.
Assassin's Creed Revelations, Breaking Bad Season 3 on Blu Ray, The Lion King on Blu Ray, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 on Blu Ray, some PSN cards, some Wii Points cards...and that's about it really.
I was going to ask for Rayman Origins for Christmas, but I can't wait any longer for that game so I'm buying it tomorrow!
I also thought about asking for Skyrim but I think I'll save that game for sometime next year when there's not much new to play.
I don't "ignore" it, but I know that everything she has on there will be picked up by someone else (parents, an aunt, friends of ours [we have a get together that I force upon everyone; cheapish gifts, $10-$15]), the things that I get her are things that she may've forgotten about saying that she wanted, or maybe something that she didn't even really know about. Like, I got her Guitar Hero III way back when; thats not something she ever would've asked for outright, but she played the H out of that thing. If you want to PM me, I can give you some ideas. I buy the same types of things year to year and they're always pretty darn good. Are the things you get no good?
Just remember: just because she doesn't ASK for it don't mean she won't LIKE it.
Oh no, I know what to get Laura. She drops hints or does like Nikki, mentions something and then forgets about it...or I take a stab in the dark at something I'm pretty sure she'll like, and I'm usually right.
She's just real hard for my parents to buy for because she rarely makes out a list of wants, you know?
This might not be your fancy, but what about a scrap book of your relationship? Surely you or Shirley holds onto stuff from places you've been. Stick something on a page, type up a little something about it. Laura did that for me on our first Christmas. I still open it from time to time...easily the best gift I've ever received.
I hear that. We don't see a lot of new movies during the year, so getting one of those on DVD is usually a good bet for her. My parents usually get her sweaters, or something like that. My parents just like to buy sweaters for everyone.
Again, for Nikki (from me), I've never seen her refuse anything from VS. Girls like.
(ALSO, if you get in there before December; if you spend over $15 or something, you get this card that activates on the 1st and its worth a number of dollars off of your purchase, but you don't know how much. The top level is like $500 or something like that. It probably won't be that much, but you never know. Check it out!)
Its a great idea! Its tough though, with her not being materialistic. Maybe some lipglossy stuff? Its feminine, but also protects against the harsh winter climate! I don't have the total gist on Shirley. Does she loathe makeup?
