I haven't had a chance to save up, never had any spare money

Can she take a hint though! x

The picture idea is a good one. But try not to be so tight with your budget, especially for your Mrs. I know it's the thought that counts and all that, but if you wanna see a GIGANTIC smile on her face on Christmas morning, then go all out.

Its the thought that counts.I would rather something for £20 than nothing at all

I could probably stretch to £40 tbh, everyone else will end up with poundshop gifts though

Girls love photo things so framed picture is good. My gf loves personalised mugs with a picture of us on it. There is the photobox offer for a free one you should check it out

I'm sure there were other reasons, if she loved her kids that much she wouldn't have killed herself and left them without a mum. Santa could have just broken down and brought them another time

Probably were other reasons.Apparently she tried it yesterday aswell.Should of given her more help if she feeling this suicidal.The whole of Stoke on Trent was manic due to the A50 being closed for over 4 hours

And personally i think she's selfish...she got hit by a car so the person in the car has also got this on their minds,and those poor kids x

But hey,back to topic,sorry shouldnt of ruined your thread with this...back to the xmas pressie for your gf......x

I like the frame idea, You could also look at fashionunion.co.uk/ their 50% sale is on at the moment and they have lots of pretty items under £20

Also there are probably discount codes on here too!

A person who is ill enough to throw herself off a bridge isn't thinking about that,only "well" people will think said person is selfish.

Yes, but i wouldn't know where to start looking. Any links would be appreciated

Seriously thats the kind of money my kids spend on me (or ask me to choose a pressie for) last year they they spoilt me and got more than i said, but this year I said no more than £20 each, so I gave them ideas of things they could afford and I would like, No.1 was a bracelet to go with the Swarovski ring they bought me for my birthday, it means so much to me, second i said maybe some perfume, elle by ysl is my favourite, and third I just asked them to use their imagination for new gloves and scarfs for the Sunday football! Just some ideas from my boys with a similar budget!

A pampering massage or facial voucher?

Sometimes Amazon have some nice stuff,what kinda things does she wear,earrings/necklaces?

Why don't you go on buyagift.com and buy a photoshoot day where her make up and hair gets done professionally etc for her or pampering day that's on there? It's a bit different and us girlies love stuff like that! Failing that if she is a thrill seeker then maybe a bungee jump!! Few ideas I guess =D only around £15-£40 too!!

do you mean that's the kind of money YOU give your kids to spend on you!! OP is asking for help with ideas not to get rubbished for how little money they have to spend, christmas is not about money or gifts, it should be about spending time with loved ones, shame so many parents teach there kids it's all about the presents!!

Digital photo frame, fill it with pics of you both.

Good idea's, i'll have to try and hint it and see her response. Was thinking of getting her a big teddy bear as well, so she can have something to keep, yay or nah ?

Yes on the teddy!! Us girls love teddies lol

Teddy bear is sweet I think that is a lovely idea to be honest! The website has some great things, I hope you find something

Did see some really nice shoes she would like but they're all really small sizes

A dvd, fondue set & a bottle of wine should make for a least one good night in for you both... better still buy a cheap box set of dvd (2-3 films) Plus for £10 you can pic up a sex in the city perfume giftset look nice and smells quite nice (bodycare & tj hughes sell the set)

Hope this helps

Buy the Notebook dvd, bottle of wine and then write in a card a romantic plan for the evening...............guaranteed you will have such a lovely evening - not much sleep - but lots of nice memories!
