My system is similar to this, the difference is I just tell everybody that I'm poor an nobody expects me to buy gifts. It started out true, but now I'm like Donald Trump rich from all the presents I don't have to buy.
Another good way to cheat your friends on gifts is to link them the Twogag Facebook page as a Christmas present.
I'd love to do this, I bring it up every year, but in a family full of the fairer sex, everybody tends to think surprises are what makes Christmas special. It's all Bullshit. It just makes Christmas shopping even more inconvenient than it already is.
