What to buy?

So I know it's only August but here I am thinking of what to buy people for Christmas. I know it's crazy, but I've always been like that. I think I must have got it from my mother, she always shops early. I really like buying presents for Christmas, it's like I get a little high off of it. However, when it comes to buying for men in the family I am terrible. I never know what to buy them. I always want to get something that people will like and enjoy. It seems to me that men are mostly into the really expensive things that I can't afford to buy them. Sure I could get them some cologne, a hat, or a nice coffee mug, but you can only buy someone so much of that. So is it only me that has a hard time with this or do others share my troubles? I would hate to be stereotyping men, so correct me if I am wrong. Luckily my husband is into some things that I can let everyone know he likes (superheroes) but I know sometimes he's even hard to buy for. Why do I torture myself so early with this, it's a curse and a blessing all at the same time. I need to go look at that Lakeside catalog again and see what I can come up with.

Oh you know I can identify with this...if Randey didn't price himself right out of his gifts, he'd get alot more. But he always wants something that costs $300 or so. Whatever happened to a nice shirt? lol

You can't go wrong with a box of choclate covered cherries, specially if you buy a fancy box and place them inside and then lie and tell that person they are handmade...you don't have to say who hand made them, right?
