Just wondered if you buy yourself a xmas present, I do each year I have done for ages it's not always a big present but this year will hang on and buy a new tv the one that I have in the main room will go in the bedroom, so it's to get a new one now or get it when I move house.

lol, we always say to the kids before they buy anything, you sure you want this now as its going to be cheaper at some point, but you know what kids are like.

Me too! Buy all the stuff I want or need and give them to OH who gives them to the kids to wrap. They're over the moon when they see my happy face on Christmas morning because I got what I wanted X)

going off slightly from the op, but I used to hate it when my daughter got dolls for christmas, they were so over-packaged with ties & the dolls hair was stitched into the packaging !!!

I used to hate it when i was a lad getting cars etc, the put so much packaging around them and i swear my family never had a screwdriver unless one popped out of a cracker later in the day! Some years i used to just drive the boxes across the floor . . . . . didnt have the same effect somehow! :p

lol, kids are amazing when small, they'd find more fun with the packaging then the toys themselves, but then it gave me time to play with the toys :D

Aargh Bratz dolls were the worst - are they still going? My two eldest got 2 or 3 each one Christmas and it was a nightmare getting them all open. That was about 10 years ago. Can't believe they're still on the go as they're ugly things.

Snap! Barbie plane, camper van and cars - everything was up there though a lot chucked when we moved house. Must've spent a fortune on BabyBorn clothes and accessories which we kept but getting money's worth as my 4 and 2 year old play with it all now.

well I assume if he has an ebay shop then it must be legit? otherwise it would be reported and closed down in no time if it was not genuine.

Looking at the website there arent many pictures of the actual watches just stock photos (where the time is normally set to ten past 10 or thereabouts).

I would ask for some photos of the item you are looking to purchase first, I wouldn't have thought it would be a problem because after all you're a potential customer who could be spending thousands of pounds.

I've been told about the TZ forums where second hand pieces are sold link here that part of the forum is for items below $5000 but it is legit and people have pictures of the actual piece they are selling and give it a rating out of 100 of what the condition is like also. Might be worth a look.

You might be able to find a planet ocean on there for $2000 ish which would equate to £1500ish, depends if you want brand new or not though

Ive done this loads of times, I even wrote on the gift card 'To me, love from me xxx' lol

At least you wont be disapointed if you buy your own.
