 This is the first year since dd was born that we are getting my parents anything for Christmas. They live on the other side of the Country, so we are shipping presents. I don't have a ton of money, but a little bit :) I got my mom a new coffee maker (bc the one that she has is just...eww) and I got my grandma (who lives with them) a pin, a tote bag for her knitting stuff and a coffee mug with pics of her great grandkids on it. But my DAD.....he's a big Chicago fan, but he's got like every single peice of sports team crap imaginable! He's not much of a reader, I'm not sure what dvd's he already has, he doesn't listen to cd's much, and he's over loaded on cologne...huff!! I just have no idea what to get him.

For those of you who ARE getting your dad something for Christmas, what are you getting? Maybe I'll get some ideas! TY in advance!

 That's actually a really good idea!! I used to get him clothes every year, why didn't I think of that?? TY!!
