I know it's not very thoughtful but sometimes I just get the same gifts for everyone. This year, I was wondering what generic gift will be nice. Do you have any suggestions?

As much as i can do i avoid giving the same gift to my family and loveones. But sometimes if i got no idea i buy similar gifts but different brands. For my siblings when i buy dress to one, i buy dress to the rest coz they keep comparing and complaining why the one is have a dress while she doesn't lolz. Happy posting.

Haha! I can imagine how this is. You're good though if you can memorize all their sizes! I will take this into consideration too! Thanks!

What about books they can be given to men, women and children alike. there are truck book puzzles ,jewelery books for girls, sound books for toddlers ,you name it it's out there. You could paint up some pet rocks with a story and note on how to care for their new pets for the kids. adults get painted rock paper-weights or something to take pride of place in the garden. cheers.

I do think these are wonderful ideas. I will have to check my budget though if it can handle the books. :) That is quite a cute idea though! Thanks!

For me generally the gifts depend upon the person whome i am sending the gift and also depends equally upon the occasion. I may or may not give the same gifts to everyone, but generally i don't give the same gifts to everyone. Special people who rea very close to me can expect some different and exciting stuff from me everytime till the time i am finished with my creativity... . I haven't had a chance to buy any generic gift for all, infact never had any occasion as such...

You are a very thoughtful person! Here in the Philippines, it is common practice to give gifts to everyone, even to people you are not particularly close with. I admire your thoughtfulness!

I am guilty of this sometimes as well. This year I am heading to a jewelry outlet store that sells all kinds of costume jewelry and accessories. This way at least the people will get different gifts but basically the same, as they all will be jewelry. If only I could do this for the guys too.

This is a good idea! Maybe I can try this. I panic at the thought that we have to get so many gifts this Christmas and we have not even started yet!

It becomes easier and then all gifts are of teh same value so youdo not really have to think who to give a costly one and who to give the cheap one.

I agree, this is easier on the budget too! Usually I give toiletries but my husband says I always give toiletries!

I m not uniformal with my gift giving, each person besides my sons get their own diffrent and unique gifts. I often get similar things for my sons since they are close in age and can use some of the same things as each other.
