for the man in your life get a Private eye subsicription - one of the most popular gifts ever here! a bargain

any tips for teens - nephew 16, niece 14? I have no clue confused

Cyb Sun 05-Dec-10 22:34:48

Niece-as much as I hate gift cards you can't go far wrong with a H & M card or Zara or similar with a half decent amount on it (ie not a fiver)

Nephew 16- designer socks/boxers etc? Anything with 'Superdry' written on it?

any kid over 12 does not want your shit
they want cash

Shall I buy Private Eye Subscription for ddad even though he has cancer?

(spose it might encourage him to keep going knowing that his gift is going to keep giving for a whole year?)

What can members of my family buy for 7 y/o ds?
