My Christmas list doesn't have too much on it this year. I've asked for a Blu Ray DVD player, some new bed sheets, a new set of pots and pans, and a couple of gift cards. My dad will hopefully give me a few nice bottles of wine.

about all I want is a table saw. but I don't have any room in the garage to store it. But if I had it, I could build more storage... quite the paradox.

DH and I are setting a $25 gift limit for our holiday gifts to each other this year. Forces us to be very creative... and doesn't put a dent in our house down payment account.

You could also do what my husband and I have done for several years - instead of big gifts to each other we make a monetary gift to our favorite charity and then we write each other a Christmas love letter. I have them all saved in a beautiful red scrapbooking album to enjoy in the old folks home one day

Loves thats great. My wife is making me pick stuff even though I don't really want anything.

At least one upside of having a slow economy is that maybe people will start seeing what's really important in life and Xmas and that's spending time with friends and family not IPODs or WIIs. Or maybe our society has gone too far away from that already.
