I am a little stuck for inspiration, I'm trying to find something our 1 year old girl can buy her daddy for Christmas.
I have looked at the fingerprint cuff links, but they are so expensive and cant find anything unusual and at a good price. I would ideally like to spend about £20.00- £30.00.
So do you buy your OH presents from your children and what do you buy them?

Probably a little Lego set. We are on a very tight budget though and DD is only 1.
For his birthday she bought him a small bottle of single malt.

Since we've had dd she has 'bought' dp a travel mug with photos of her on (from tescos), a keyring with a photo of her, and (most successfully) a t-shirt from Think Geek with dad in binary on it (dp is of a geeky persuasion).

I am stuck for ideas for this year, though.

How about going to somewhere that you can choose to paint/ handprint something for Dad, for example, ceramic photo frame/mug? Perhaps a personalised gift, such as a book mark or poster...some great ones on not on the high street

I give mine £5 each and let them loose in Poundland with the instruction to buy something for me, their dad and their grandparents. They love it and the recipients are always amused by their choices (anything from window cleaner to Maltesers!) Not much help with a one year old I know, but maybe next year!

I second NotOnTheHighStreet for personalised stuff. Also something personal.co.uk for cheaper stuff.

Thank you, I'vemnever heard of Think Geek before and there are lots of things that are perfect. The cuff-links on NotOnTheHighStreet are also great so I may have christmas and fathers day 2013 sorted!
