    Okay, i got the immediate family's gifts down, now for the extended family (Mom's BF and Brother's wife).

    Mom's BF = Rich guy who really has every toy he could possibly want. What the hell do you get the really cool guy that has everything.

    Sister-in-law = Fat redneck chick that likes hockey, but already has a redwings jersey.

    I need gift ideas. NOW BITCHES.

    For those who havent started shoping yet, here's some ideas from my list.

    Mom (the NASCAR Fan) - Tony Stewart Championship Jacket from 77Sports.com

    Brother (the AVID golfer with shitty clubs) - New Graphite clubs from Ebay

    Father (Ex-Fighter Pilot) - Yaw pedals for Flight Sim Games from Newegg

    Grama (Homebody still hasnt gotten over grampa's death 3 years ago) - CDs of all his speeches (they were on tape previously) and a thumbdrive of all the mp3s so she can have someone in the family reburn them

    Aunt & Uncle (Newly Parents....really crazy parents) Video baby monitor from Newegg

    Not sure if I would spend the money on Ebay clubs for an "avid" golfer unless those are the specific clubs he wants. I am not a die hard but I know for a fact that I would feel akward getting clubs for a gift. I guess I am the type that I need to hit the clubs in order to know whether or not I like them. There is more to clubs than meets the eye, usually you get what you pay for. The only exception to that is the R7 driver that my fiance's dad gave me because he got it free to demo. Just my .02, I also have most of my shopping done.

    i'll probably start mine around dec 21st or so...


    Something unique. He doesn't need your expensive gift... he just wants something that he's never seen before... or something.

    don't get him a 'Tie" or anything generic like that...
    if hes kinda adventerous, get him and you tickets/gift cert for something, like a paint ball outing, or a rock climbing wall thing.. stuff like that.

    Well he plays a lot but he is using some really crappy clubs that we picked up at a garage sale close to 10 years ago. I think he would be happy with something that didnt have rust or a peeling grip. The kid isnt a 0 handicap, he just plays a lot and im tired of hearing him bitch that he doesnt have money for new clubs (even though he really doesnt....but maybe he could miss a round every now and then).

    Oh if that is the case then I am sure that he would appreciate the gesture. My bad I think that he would love them.

    Garth Brooks. Somehow he's able to make his middle-aged porky self be seen as attractive. Somehow that works in the country music world. I don't get it.

    LOL, but im not an asshole to her face. I just think my brother shouldnt have gone so trashy.

    I gotta get something tasteful and preferably on the same level as everyone else. I know, ill put her redwings jersey in her babys hands after i tear it up. then i can buy a new one for her and be done with it.
