    So Christmas is coming up, and our lists are growing, our wallets are stricken with fear, and our holiday spirit is burning hot.
    So I'd like to know, what are y'all asking for this christmas? I generally ask because, some of us can actually get ideas from others. Im trying to get an Idea of what to put on my own list, what to possibly get for my little brothers, and so on and so forth.
    So far, my brothers lists have been STRICKEN with Minecraft Memorabilia... So I have a basic gift Idea for them...

    Getting a WiiU tomorrow as an early present. (Hoping for a Deluxe with an extra game, but will take a standard version with a game.)
    Electrical stuff (Soldering supplies, kits, programming boards, etc.)
    Money
    Giftcards
    Games
    Clothes
    Steam items
    Candy

    We typically get about $150 in money/Visa giftcards and go to the nearby mall to wander around the various stores. I plan on buying some stuff for my WiiU, as well as grabbing a year of PSN+ for my Vita. Anything else I get is a bonus.

    Oh, and I have to go get something for my secret Santa.

    I'm getting nothing for Christmas. Cos my family don't celebrate it.


    If I were I'd ask for a kindle.

    Same for me, but that's besause my family won't be with me... But if I could, I would have asked clothes, money or a good meal in a good restaurant.

    Probably an Ipad(yes, I know IOS sucks, but I've already got an android) or a lot of games for my 3DS(about 5 or so).

    Well we have a day where we celebrate oppressing the Irish. Which as I'm concerned is much better than Christmas.

    Honestly I have no idea what to ask for. (We don't celebrate christmas, but it's my birthday a week after that) I could ask for games, but I already have more than enough games honestly. Don't need a tablet either. The only thing I'm somewhat interested in is a WiiU, but only because I'll have to get one eventually for the exclusives.
