    I think I mentioned this elsewhere, but I usually buy everyone a variation of the same gift of either wine or chocolates/foodie treats, so nobody is hard to shop for! I order in a mixed case of mid-priced wine from the Wine Society, together with one of their Christmas Hampers, and get a few boxes of nice things from my local good chocolaterie.

    That keeps me well supplied with pressies for everyone, as well as a steady supply of things to bring to Christmas parties. In fact, around the festive season, I usually keep the mixed case in the boot of the car, just so there's always a bottle handy at short notice.

    However, once in a rare while, I break that rule and get someone something more specific. I don't usually like doing this, because then I have to think, and that's too much like hard work... :D

    Jesus. It's hard to shop for the man who has everything.

    Jesus opens his gift: "This is so thoughtful, but I already have a bunch of Myrrh. Did you save the receipt? Maybe I can trade it in."

    I talked about the perfect solution to this recently. :D

    I can guarantee, no guy would be disappointed with that! Not even Jesus.

    Just don't get him a balm. "A Balm? What are you giving him a BALM for? It might bite him!" :lol:

    (side note: For the longest time I thought the line was 'a BOMB'...)

    Nah, Jesus would just re-gift it to someone who can't walk on water. :lol:
