What gifts are You buying for Christmas?

I was wondering what everyone has in plan to buy or create for their loved ones....hereīs what I have bought already and a bit of what will come

Kandice, my daughter : a Fisher Price learning clock....she knows how to count to 6 already and recognizes numbers since January (she wasnīt even 2....I found that a bit scary...hehe) and a Winter Jacket (of course she will not get it for Christmas but before when itīs cold) I will get her some books to paint in and stuff like that

my niece: pet doctor set from Playmobil

my mom: Iīm planning on creating a photobook of Kandice and the family via the internet....these are real books then instead of clued in pictures...I love those

my dad: a puzzle

my godchild: probably some playmobil, too....just donīt know which

grandparents: i have no idea....but I always come up with something nice

my fiance: he gets money...he wants it like that, because he wants to travel to Cameroon (Africa) to see his family after more than 8 years....so buying him something wouldnīt really be what he wants....I hate to give money to him...but for now...itīs the best

my best friend: no idea yet....probably a dvd or a CD

brother and his wife: no idea

their son that will be born in October...: some clothes or stuff like that

I am getting my husband's parents a gift certificate to a very fancy restaurant in their town and I made them a photo book of their family pictures from our wedding.

I am getting my husband's brother a very nice watch. He recently graduated from college with an engineering degree and did not have a graduation party. His Christmas gift is a combination Christmas/Graduation gift.

I am at a loss at what to get my husband. I found some travel books last night that he would like but those are more "stocking stuffers" and I can't think of a "big" gift.
