I apologise now to those who are offended when there is 3 months to go 'til Santa drops down the chimney!

I thought it might be a good idea for us to drop down all our past fantastic gift ideas so we can all pick up some inspiration as this year I seem to have run out - especially where the men are concerned!

Previously I have done Radio controlled alarm clocks for the chaps (all different ones to suit their ages but the same theme) and they are all still using them which I hope is a good sign! They are great - if the electrics go down as soon as they come back on again the clocks reset themselves! I also did a subscription for National Geographical for the older chaps (first time orders from £15 - bargain). Plus I get the hand downs from my dad to read!!

For the women last year Dorothy Perkins had big fluffy dressing gowns at buy one get one half price and so I bought one for the two mums and paired them up with a pair a fluffy slippers.

For my neices I bought cinema vouchers for two for their local cinema and wrapped them up with a bag of popcorn! A bit silly - but they were used and enjoyed!

I am struggling to find new original ideas - plus ones which won't break the bank!!


I'm giving everyone petrol vouchers this year ;-)

I am gonna start making some gift baskets type things for kids teachers and friends etc, including some home made fudge and biscuits etc. Been buying some bits to go in them for a couple of weeks and as soon as I have enough I will have an assembling night with a bottle of wine. Daughter wants to have a go at home made soap and bath salts etc so they can be added as well.

i do all my shopping in the sales through the year, my daughter is only 3 so she doesnt notice, saving for when she needs all the lastest gadgets lol
