    Are you secretly wanting anything for Christmas as a gift?

    When I tell family/better half what I want for Xmas for gifts it's typically pretty basic. Clothes, small electronics, etc.

    But deep down I am wanting an all-session ticket to the Big 12 tourney. :) But i didn't ask for it so likely won't happen.

    Are there things you actually do really want but didn't say it on your Xmas list?

    Best way to get what you really want is to tell nobody and hope they read your mind.

    Re: Are you secretly wanting anything for Christmas as a gift?

    Secretly hoping for either my dad or father in law to give me one of the many rifles/shotguns they have. I bought a 10 gun cabinet on Black Friday and now I need to expand my collection to help fill it.

    I am wanting my cold/flu to go away before xmas. Earlier than that would be even better. Does that count?

    OLED TV, Samsung or LG, either is ok. Current price $9000, most electronics websites predict $1500 by 2015.

    I got a cold yesterday and it's worsening. Hope it's gone by the weekend. But I still want all session tickets too. :)

    Re: Are you secretly wanting anything for Christmas as a gift?

    I always just say the small stuff or gift cards because everything I want is expensive so it won't be bought.

    Of course that leads to (mainly my in-laws) getting creative and buying thingsthey think I will like. I feel like a heartless jerk but seriously I told you what I want/need. If you can't afford it give me the cash you can spend and I will put it towards that.

    My in-laws are the same way. They never just give cash/gift cards so I am just stuck trying to think of smaller things that I wouldn't mind instead of the bigger things that I really want. A few years I just took home a bunch of crap because they didn't know what to get me.

    My parents, on the other hand, got smart several years ago and just started handing me an envelope with cash inside.

    I secretly wanted an Xbox One, so I told my wife I was getting it, and that it could be my gift. And then I bought it. That's how I roll.

    I secretly wanted a PS4 so I planted the seed that we should get it for my son and it could just count as my gift as well. Well that's two gifts in 1 box, we'd be crazy not to buy it.

    Re: Are you secretly wanting anything for Christmas as a gift?

    The way my wife and I roll is that if one of us need something we get it, and then just post date it to a certain holiday. You need a new TV in July? Ok, but that's your Christmas present. I'm pretty sure something I am currently enjoying was my Christmas 2013 present, given to me circa May 2011.

    I did consider throwing my son in there with me, but then I thought GAMES! So he is getting games, most of which he wants also.
