Subject: Aunt x 2

Location: Too far to drop off, will need delivering.

Interests: specifically - unknown, generally - events prior to 1985

Budget: £50 each including delivery and potential gift wrapping.

Any suggestions welcome.

Feel free to use this as a base for similar problems as mine.

Have a bouquet of flowers delivered

I hate these kind of threads.

"Help me buy a gift for somebody you don't know and have never met. Here is absolutely no information about them to help you with your suggestions."

An idea, OP. Ask them if they would like anything, or ask other family members what they might like.

Not much information to go off here so I'd suggest gift vouchers.

get your aunts some nice lingerie and a train ticket to mine

I would order a nice food gift hamper or one containing chocolates and a bottle of something. Amazon have some nice "Christmassy" ones and it would be free next day delivery if you are a prime member.

Electric salt and pepper grinder with fancy salt and pepper in
From the very limited info you gave they sound old so they won't want to use a manual grinder. Everyone uses salt and pepper. So even an ideal gift for the not so old.

If they're tech savvy Amazon dot.

Cashmere scarf

This day in history one per day calendar. Or women's history one per day

Extra info that would be helpful for future posts would be age, kids/pets

No information on how old they are either X)

Haha thanks for the input guys.

I think hamper is a great shout and what I will go with! But I had to mark the lingerie/train ticket combo as best answer.

They are 68 and 74 respectively.

No kids

No pets

But I think the generic aunt gift ideas have been perfect

Have a look on BHS they did have some hampers reduced.
