    Family/Friends list, most people have the same, the people who have the movie bucket I have so far bought the popcorn buckets, the clear wrap and the ribbon. I'll add what I buy for inside the buckets to the list. The nieces ones I think will be more for the families, so niece 1 is almost 15 and has 3 younger siblings, so I'll add enough popcorn etc for 4 people. Niece 2 is 27 and has a 2 year old son, so I'll put a kids friendly dvd in and enough popcorn for 3.

    So far we've never had a snooper, but I'm a little concerned that we have less in the way of hiding spaces this year
