Mine have not made it any easier on us this year.  Both DS1 and DS2 (22 and 19) like choosing their own electronics, and we're happier with that as opposed to having to decide what features, etc.  Well, they mentioned an interest in e-readers, so we've been offering to take them shopping since they got home the week before Christmas . . . and they've been putting it off because they'd rather hang out instead.  They're really happy with the shirts we got them -- some lined, a real hit -- if we'd waited for their input, they wouldn't have had gifts to open.  They mostly want to get enough sleep, have dinner together, and eat popcorn while we all watch a movie.

Empty-nesting SAHM to DS1 (1989), DS2 (1992), an underachieving Bernese Mountain Dog (2006-2014), and an overachieving mother (1930).  Married to DH since 1986.
