The "help fellow posters do Christmas on the cheap" thread

Thought it was a good idea to start this off in the run-up to Christmas.  CDs and DVDs are easy presents imo, but add what you like.

 

I wanna get my lass the Six Feet Under boxset amongst other things, but the cheapest I've seen is £55.  That's a bargain really, but I want it cheaper if possible.

 

I'll start us off with a few:

 

Series 1-3 of the American Office for £13.  That's just an insane price.

Curb Your Enthusiasm Series 1-6 for £45.  That's a good price, but I got Series 1-5 for £35 two years ago and have kinda got used to the price of everything coming down and down:

Polaroid Pogo for £23 now, that's a steal.  I've got one of these and they're good fun:

What is a Polaroid Pogo?

 

It's a little printer.  You bluetooth the photo file to the Pogo and it prints out a little picture that's also a sticker.  It doesn't need ink as the ink's in the paper and the paper's not that dear (about 20p a sheet and you get them in tens or whatever).  It's a canny little novelty item, which RRP'ed at over a hundred quid so £24's spot on.

Why couldnt you have made this thread yesterday, before Lanky bought his presents?!

 

I wasn't aware he'd bought them already, I owe him one for the butter seal thing.

 

Be Here Now probly only cost you a quid second hand

 

That's a particular bargain folks, since every track lasts (AN EPIC!) 7 minutes.  When I'm on coke, I wouldn't advise anyone to take anything I say seriously.  I'd be being generous to myself to even say you should bother talking to me.  The same principle applies here.

Heathen Chemistry (pretty much the whole album, only 4 or 5 good tracks), Little James, I can See A liar, Put Your Money Where You Mouth Is, Any song Liam wrote that was a B-Side (exsept pass me down the wine), Ain't Got Nothin', The Nature of reality. I could probably come up with more but i'll leave it at that.

Fair enough.  I heard 'put your money where your mouth is' and absolutely adored it when I was too young to realise what a Doors rip-off it was.

 

What you getting people for Christmas?  Anything exciting?  Anything cheap?
