Something nice for the missus?

    We're all off to Crete next week and its her birthday whilst we are away.
    Has anyone got any good ideas for a gift to get / bring?
    I was thinking of a necklace or a bit of jewellery(under £50) but most of the local jewellers are really offering tut at the moment. (Samuels, Ernst Jones etc)
    Any ideas? Something not too bit as it has to go in my case and not knickers or smellies

    Many thanks for any input



    buy something out there


    If shes a fan of jewellery I would suggest a Pandora bracelet, They're about £55 and work as a charm bracelet as you buy beads to add onto the bracelet. Therefore can be used for future presents as you can buy appropriate charms at birthdays, xmas and anniversaries. good for sentimental people.

    wouldnt buy anything out there, just got back from spain and the euro is very weak, everything is more expensive there.

    Was in Debenhams today and it was dire. The jewellery was reduced only if it was unbranded. The Jasper Conran stuff and Hot Diamonds all full price :x
    Dont fancy buying overt here as Im not too familiar with the territory.

    Can't get your links to load

    What about this bracelet? Its really lovely IRL. I have one and one of the pearl style ones.…tml
    Then get a charm to add on? Not too pricey then you can add to it for other special occasions.

    I have had some nice stuff from here-not things you see in shops which is nice for a treat:…tml

    Thanks for all the replies.
    The links point to a tinkerbell pendant at debenhams £30 rrp
    Ebay,same pendant £5.99 :-D:-D
    Shes a tinkbell freak and like swarvoski (I think that's how its spelt) So I got a cubic zircoinia heart 20mm for 7.99 rrp 49.99
    So, could have spent £70 only parted with £15 so enough left over to get a cake and some balloons whilst Im over there and embarrass the life out of her when I take her to a pub all decked out for her birthday. (she should know as Ive done it several times before,still makes her go bright red lol)
