I didn't have a huge budget but I did give gifts. I got my 9 yr old brother new sandals after he left his old ones on the cruise ship, he's a real genius. lol. I got my 12 yr old brother a Ronnie Brown poster that he wanted and it may have been a little good luck cuz Ronnie was 18-110 on Christmas. I got my mom a book of Florida's most famous ghost stories that she had been looking at and a picture frame for photos from our cruise. After I got it, I put a picture of a drunk guy in a Santa outfit in the frame that we met in Key West, he was a cool guy and she loved the idea. I got ym grandma some stuff from Bath & Body Works. That was about it, the one present I got for ym step-dad was lost in the dark abyss under the tree and I don't know if it was ever found but there's a rescue committee looking for it now and we send out our prayers to the present and hopefully it will be found unharmed and ready to open.
Oh that reminded me of something funny. When we lived in NY and my stepdad was selling his house, he had this old tank shell. It was an armor piercing shell that they used in WW2 that a friend of his family had given to him that had neevr been used. He had it in a droor in the kitchen. He never took it out and when the lady who bought his house was looking around, she found it and freaked out!! She didn't know what to do so she called the cops and they wouldn't touch it. Then they called in the navy and they wouldn't touch it either. So her father just took it outside and set it in the backyard. The cops had a warrant out for my stepdad for the rest of the day but he talked to the cops and didn't get into trouble. It was on the news and everything and they actually called him a fugitive on the news which was crazy. They wound up blowing up the shell on the beach and they wouldn't even let us watch which sukked but that was a crazy day.
