Perfect Christmas Shopping

Recommended Posts

This is the complaint I hear from my family: "Dad's so hard to buy for. I have no idea what to get him."


I don't want Christmas to be a time of stress for people. So I bought four items averaging around $50 and sent out an email listing them to my wife and (grown) kids.

  • Aerosoft's new F-14
  • iFly's 747
  • fs2crew for 767 & Aerosoft's Airbus
  • FSDreamTeam's KIAH

The rules are each picks one and pays whatever they feel like on it, up to $50. They're already downloaded and won't be installed until Christmas. Each one will be considered a bona fide gift (since I probably would think twice about buying them myself). If they cover the whole price, great; if not, I enjoy a discount. Oh, and nothing gets installed until Christmas to make it official.


The only downside I can think to this scheme is I spend all day Christmas in front of my computer ignoring everybody! Well, that, and no one participating. But, then again, I still get the stuff :P

I wish I had the courage to ask my wife for a $200 gift certificate to FlightSimStore. I've got a cart full of discounted Orbx.  :P


Shirts and socks will have to suffice...
