I know often people have bought something special and would like to tell someone.Perhaps being careful of who for fear of them letting the cat out of the bag.
Please keep this in the spirit of the holidays. Merry Christmas folks!! cheesy
 Or perhaps you can share just to throw ideas out for other members.

Nothing incredibly special although the older my kids get, the more expensive their requests become. My 10 year old wanted a desktop pc, 'not a laptop dad, a desk top' and my 7 year old wanted an iPod. So, Ive been working every extra-duty job thats came available to spring for the loot Smiley

LOL, K9.  I also prefer a desktop over a laptop.  A nice big monitor would be nice for that desktop too  Smiley

In 1978 I bought my "then 9 year old" son a Montgomery Ward western field 410 shotgun. Last month we were looking at recurve bows on ebay. We ran across a vintage Montgomery Ward WF recurve. He commented on it being a nice match for the shotgun. I went home, signed on the 'puter, and bought it.

we usually get something that we need/want.  it's usually something practical for the house.  this year, hubby was thinking about getting a bigger big screen....don't know why....but it looks like we may be sinking a new well instead  sad

cost wise, i'd rather have the TV.

My wife is on her 2nd bread machine in 6 year and it sounds like it full of marbles so a new one is on the list.  Also a new vaccuum packer because the old one doesn't suck.  That really sounds backwards

Wish my wife made enough bread to wear out two bread machines in six years. I would sure buy her one. Homemade bread with real butter and comb honey sounds good to me.

buzz if you get the stand mixer get her a a kitchen Aide professional 6 series.  expensive but worth it.  you can get the smaller kitchen aids cheaper at sams club but I think the big unit is worth the cost.

Ive got a 1968 Browning Recurve that was my Dads. (still is my Dads, but Ive managed to commandeer it) Pretty nice. There isnt any draw and aim for any long periods of time though like on a compound.

I'll 2nd this ken.  My wife has the smaller one that tilts back.  It is 18 years old and is use hard 2 or 3 times a week, 52 weeks a year.  This past weekend I was grinding venison with it and it made a funny pop sound.  Think it might have finnally wore out a gear or two.  I will now have to add the Pro 600 mixer to the Xmas list.

I'm a traditional bow hunting nut and a collector of vintage bows, hope your son puts that trophy over the fireplace, most of those old bow limbs won't hold up to much shooting before breaking.

It won't be shot. It is a right handed bow and he is a lefty. He hasn't shot the 410 in over 20 years. It will be collector only.
