Help
Everyone is asking me for Xmas present ideas for me and I just don't have a clue.
What do you want for Xmas?

From my DP a silver bracelet with a heart charm. My sisters (3 of them) are getting me a cream sauce pan set I'm so boring and my parents bought me a washing machine when mine packed in a few weeks ago. HTH

Dkny watch
Alex Monroe bumble bee necklace
Purple coolpix camera

Hopefully should get at least one of those, what I would really love is a stocking with some surprises in but DH isn't good at stuff like that, so I've also purchased myself a neom candle, an envelope clutch from boden and an umbrella by a company called wanderlust which I will just enjoy having as DH alwYs moans if I ask for things like that and just says he'd rather I just buy them as and when!

Im a cheap date. I only want Cee Lo Greens CD and a slanket old ladies blanket

Roller skates, a cosy jumper and DP is threatening to buy me some electronic gadget, such as a Roomba, which would be amazing but not sure I could cope with telling people I got a Hoover for Xmas!

Marking my place. I need inspiration! I will get something fairly blah from M&S from my DF or £20 cash. DM and DstepF always bu fab presents, with loads of thought put into it. It's only DH who I will have to tell what to buy make subtle suggestions to

A divorce

From my parents - framed print of the snail by Matisse grin

From DH probably a ukulele!

I have also got myself a few bits for my stocking blush DH a bit miffed but I couldn't resist an Optic Wonder (had one as a kid, BEST TOY EVER), a card game recently rereleased after years out of print, and Oz the Great and Powerful DVD.

A hand held anemometer grin do t think I will get one though.

A stocking full of little surprises from DH. I'm trying to convince everyone else to not worry this year (too old and, if I'm honest, bored of the same old same old), but they're not listening.

A lovely MNer (so sorry I forget who) has a 'something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read' present guide. Maybe that helps?

sad Pinkpinot.

I want a new sofa. DH is HARD on sofas. And our super, curved, 5 seater thing is no longer practical. And DD shows me today that he (or the geriatric cat) has managed to make a hole in the arm. Great.

However, geriatric cat means new sofa not practical. sad sad He'll just ruin any new one by scrabbling up it.

[googles Optic Wonder]

I haven't really asked for anything. What I would actually like:

iPad with lots of apps for work
neonatal stethoscope
Ella Doran place mats, maybe these
The Sleepwalkers (book)
Theatre tokens
Massage tokens

Might ask for a greenhouse.

IpsyUpsyDaisyDo Thu 14-Nov-13 22:32:49

A slow-cooker. They are life-changing apparently...

Weeantwee Thu 14-Nov-13 22:32:50

All I have asked for so far is pyjamas from DM and rabbit ears salad servers from DH. confused

I was planning to buy some posh thermostatic radiator valves for the house, but unexpectedly will probably have to spend the money on childcare (see my other thread). I really want them, but asking for radiator valves for Christmas?

Should I?

Otherwise, DH usually indulges my foot fetish. For my sewing machine, that is, I would like a pintuck foot and a flower foot smile

I'm pretty easy to please, to be honest!

I already have ordered/ DH has bought ;

A gorgeous solitaire ring

A nice big M&S handbag

4 new tyres for the car (ok not as glamorous as the previous 2 but a necessary purchase)

I want a new food processor (household buy) .
I could get a Kenwood but I covet a KitchenAid or a snazzy Dualit from John Lewis)

Arohaitis Thu 14-Nov-13 23:38:06

I will probably get nothing
Except I have a chocolate orange all for me and got myself a lovely red mini handbag off ebay.

I want some complex things but outside of good health and world peace etcetc, what i really want it to have a healthy pregnancy (need to conceive first!) and what I really really want is twins!

Lots of books and time to myself for a bubble bath.

Spaulding Thu 14-Nov-13 23:51:19

A breadmaker
Recipe books
Converse

That's it! Since having DS he gets spoilt with all the presents and I just get one or two! envy grin

gintastic Thu 14-Nov-13 23:54:24

Oooh Converse. I would like some of those. smile
