What is "The Big One"? (the most expensive gift you bought or are planning to buy this Christmas) What is the hardest to find? (Rare, elusive, exclusive or discontinued) What did you ask Santa for for yourself? I bought Mom an iPad 2 as she is afraid of computer viruses, has no computer herself and does not want to dedicate a space in the house she thinks would isolate her while she is on the computer. That's "The Big One". I bought my brother and his wife an address post. It's cast aluminum powder coated black with brass numbers. It kinda looks like an old hitching post. It's unique (not a plaque or yard sign) and was the hardest thing to find. And I asked Santa for the John Cassavettes DVD box set. But I'm buying myself a shotgun for home defense. That's an item I'm keeping secret from the rest of the family as such a purchase would be quite controversial in my family.
