Its not so bad and most of my family don't have a computer let alone the internet.
Thats what amazon wish lists are for! sure you know roughly what you are getting but if you fill it with enough stuff, you won't know for sure until the day.
I got a nice coat from the parents but everyone else just gave me money which is still nice but had very little to open.
I will be spending the money on a bottle of Jura, a copy of ZOE HD collection and some sensible shoes for work. What ever is left will be spent in the pub.
nicer than getting money IMO.
