    I've been wanting to buy my Mom in SoCal a portable GPS for her car. She's never been too great on navigating on her own.

    1. A Nintendo Wii (like we need another stinking video game system around here)

    2. An Erector set for one of my boys who loves to build things.

    3. A guitar for one of the others.

    4. A rifle with a pink stock for my daughter.

    5. A home planetarium for one of my boys.

    I am hoping to get a new winter coat. One that looks a little more "civilian" than most of my others.

    I want a mandolin with case, a new screen for the broken laptop that I was given, and a new copy of Windows XP. Clothes that I will wear is always good. Did I mention that 25 Dec is my birthday?
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Yeah, but once you play it, you won't look at video games the same way again. Me and my wife and kids love ours. At least with the Wii, you can't sit down and play most games.


    I am going to get my wife this little machine that cuts out patterns for scrapbooking. It looks like a printer for the computer, but it cuts out designs. Pretty cool actually. The kids get the normal. More junk toys that will hardly ever play with.

    A new computer.....no, that's gun related....I have to be able to access DC.com

    A new coat/jacket......no, that's also gun related....cover garment....

    Get my wife a new purse....No, it has to have a pistol pocket, so that's gun related........

    A new belt.......nope, that doesn't count cause it'll have to support a holster....


    I guess I can't contribute to this thread at all....moving along now to another post....

    You guys bother with non-firearm related gifts?


    I guess I can't talk, Lima told me that this year, she doesn't want "gun stuff" but a pair of ear rings instead...


    ...We may have to have an intervention.

    Do they still make Erector sets? Haven't seen one of those in years.

    Maybe a set of dangling .45 bullet earrings, with a .45 ACP neckless?

    Wow, I didn't know there was such a thing as a non-gun related Christmas gift.

    Bought my son a holster, but that was before I knew about this thread. Got my daughter her own domain name. You know, www.<fill in the blank>.com

    You named your daughter fill-in-the-blank? Well, that's just inviting a bunch of adolescent teasing.

    I could have answered the title question, which is "Non Firearm." Post #1 changes that to "non gun related." Now I don't have an answer... :shrug:

    I got my wife a plain gold wedding band. She says she wanted something less noticeable than her diamond wedding set, for wearing everyday.

    I think it's a good idea, especially with the economy the way it is.
