I realized as well that I was really behind on my Xmas shopping, and so did what I vowed to to by May but didn't, go online and shop like a 21st century digital boy. I ordered some books on Amazon (those bastards will try to play games with the shipping sometimes, it took me no less than 10 go-throughs to get it all correct) and some clothing, and something off of ebay that may or may not be shipped in time for Xmas day, but I'll include a picture of it in a box if I need to. So I'm set I suppose. I always try to take a census of what and how much and how many we get from each other to attempt to normalize my giving, as I tend not to see everything together until it's under the tree and wonder if it's really enough. I have read that we tend to buy gifts based on the hypothesized reactions at the time of receipt and not on utility, which is probably very true for us but hopefully less so because we prod each other for Xmas lists early and use them well. However my mother and sister tend to be more creative than I and always get me things I didn't ask for but probably like. I fail in this endeavor and always feel disappointing. I will have to try again next year I guess, and if I order early enough I won't be paying the friggin 30 to 50 bucks extra in rush shipping charges that I am paying now.
