Christmas Gift Anxiety

I had to laugh the other day when my sister-in-law said she didn't know what to get me for Christmas and that I was difficult to shop for. I answered this honestly...

Hard to shop for? I'm a 27 year old nerd who likes many things... books, movies, Doctor Who (and other awesome shows) and toys. Its like I'm still a kid. I have a toy collection on my desk at work. I'm happy with anything especially if its quirky or weird. I should be the easiest person to shop for.

 For example, I just bought this for myself the other day.
It dispenses candy. Awesome.

I will admit, however, that if you don't understand what is so great about things like that it can be difficult. I usually find it difficult to shop for others. I never really know what other people need or will like. Which is why I tend to wait as long as possible to buy gifts. Around mid December I start getting present buying anxiety. Thinking of that, I'd better look online now for stuff. I don't need to add anxiety to the season. Walking by all of the people ringing bells and wanting my spare change makes me nervous enough as it is. I feel like they judge me every time I hurry by them, even if I just gave some money to the people outside the last store. I can't just throw it out to everyone! Stop judging me! Breathe, just breathe.
UPDATE- My sister-in-law and her husband got me the coolest Christmas gift ever! TARDIS cookie jar!
