    Default Oh shizzle, Christmas shopping

    I have no idea what to get my parents for Christmas, Onrpg.
    NO IDEA.
    Help!
    Assist!
    Gift ideas and maybe send me some links?

    -My dad love books, but he has a bunch of them already.
    He also loves Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, Led Zeppelin, The Who, and Pink Floyd.
    I think he's getting into watching bad movies thanks to Rifftrax and Mystery Science Theater 3000 as well.
    Oh, and very religious, but in a more liberal way.

    -As for mom... ..........
    Disturbingly obsession with Alice Cooper, otherwise music like Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson, and watches soap operas, wrestling, and obnoxious sitcoms. >.<

    -They both like Bob's Burgers a whooole lot.

    ~

    On that note, and so this can be more than just me rambling about my freaking parents, are you guys having any trouble deciding what to get people as well?
    Who are you shopping for and what do they like?

    Isn't Netflix the better option? Or did I miss something along the road?

    I really don't like the idea of shopping for people if I'm going to receive gifts in return. If you're going to spend $50 on me and I'm going to spend $50 on you, why don't we just keep our own $50? Then we can be sure we both get what we want!

    I only buy gifts for my parents, and it's usually something useful and/or sentimental. Plus, it's worth because they're okay with me spending significantly less on them than they spend on me. Tee hee.

    My gift suggestions are something they can put to good use, such as: a grill, tools, kitchen appliances, a car, etc. Or something they will appreciate because you put thought and effort into it: baked goods, a pretty craft, an object you have custom made perhaps engraved with a quote significant to you and your parents, etc.

    Good luck!

    I don't think they have any good ways to watch Hulu or Netflix.
    They have satellite tv and a basic dvd player, and the only computer is dad's work computer and a crappy laptop.

    I'm with Skald, a Kindle for your dad sounds like it would be perfect if he doesn't already have one. No idea for your mom.
