Ok, spill it. What is everyone getting their loved ones this Xmas?
I'll start. My S/O and I are broke so we bought 90% of our family Kings merch from the most recent summer sale. "Here you go, Grandma. I hope you like the 3XL Patrick O'Sullivan Sh-ersy I got for you."

Kings gifts specifically, or other?
Other....it was hanukkah gifts for us, but I got my wife a few packs of these:
edit: apparently that doesn't work...but if you go to getsh**tens.com, you'll see it

Why not a Christmas card with a note saying you'll take each of them to either a Kings or Dodger game? You win by going to the game with them. They win by having you- their favorite grandson/nephew/cousin accompany them to a game.

i got my parents a calendar that i made with pics of their only grandchild.
my dad is getting a flannel shirt. he wears those to work in the winter because it keeps him warm.
my mom is getting some fancy fish sauce that i spent $30 on at whole foods. she likes cooking...
my kid is getting a tutu, memory game, train tracks, bumblebee rescue bot, glow in the dark my little pony figure and tea set.
her 4 yr old cousins are getting a bead set and DIY train painting set. her 10 yr old cousin is getting an activity book about how to not be bored anymore because that's all he ever says is "i'm bored".
their parents are getting an irish themed ornament set because all their kids have irish names... first, middle and last.
my neighbor likes owls and as a thank you for watching my kid while i rocked out at a show earlier this week 2 nights in a row, i got her a $50 gift card to starbucks, some owl ornaments, an owl koozie and an owl cookie cutter. she would've done it for free, but i felt weird asking her to hang out so late both nights and not giving her anything.
i got my kid's teachers some candles that were made in the UK since a lot of them are from there.
i already know what i'm getting. arctic monkeys - AM on vinyl and a pie crust protector. i also told my husband that i enjoyed the concerts i went to on monday and tuesday so much that it made my month and i don't need anything else. probably the best shows i've been to since thrice's farewell shows.
edit: oh ya and my father-in-law is getting some german cologne i'd never heard of but has been around since the late 18th century. maybe some herring from the dutch store too if i can swing a trip there at some point before xmas.

I picked a bunch of bananas from my favorite tree, kissed each banana with cherry red lip stick on and hand out a banana to my loved ones.

No way, and she loved it. Actually, that was just the first night of Hanukkah (we get 8 crazy nights). We tell ourselves instead of spending lots of money to just get little thoughtful and/or funny gifts.
