I love gardening and have a large garden and have asked my dh for a chainsaw but he's dead against me getting one, want's to get me something normal!

DH is buying me a brooch which I have chosen
My Dad is buying me a necklace which I found on Folksy and fell in love with
My Nana always buys me slipper socks which is fine by me as I love them.

Ottolenghi cookbook
Zumbo book (if you don't watch Masterchef Australia this will mean nothing)
Peanut butter M&ms
Coconut M&Ms
Stem ginger in dark chocolate
A ring - it's only a cheapie on Amazon

Chocolate slippers would suffice wink

TunipTheUnconquerable Sat 16-Nov-13 12:16:10

A Tudor coin
A steam mop

From the way consecutive lines all run together when posts are displayed on TIO, it looks like you are asking for chocolate slippers grin

wintercyclist Sat 16-Nov-13 11:39:02

An ipad air
A surprise
Some form of chocolate
Slippers.

Nothing. I'll probably get £20 from my mum and something small from my DS. If I can afford it, I'll get myself a jet and silver necklace.

forcookssake Fri 15-Nov-13 22:03:20

Toetoe socks, Liz Earle cleanse and polish, DM biker boots, Nashville CD grin
I may have already ordered some of these in case older relatives give money towards 'something I'd enjoy' and meanwhile clocking up the overtime to make up the difference, with any unaccounted £s being saved for the sales!

kelly21 Fri 15-Nov-13 20:33:29

i have asked for a pandora charm and some liz earle stuff

Frostyfoxy Fri 15-Nov-13 20:27:13

I have asked for (and will make sure I get) 12 days childfree! One day a month my dh will take my ds out for the day or I will take off somewhere for the day..... bliss!! grin

tickingboxes Fri 15-Nov-13 13:51:15

Driving gloves (my hands get freezing for 2 hours a day)

Tassimo machine

Special loose-leaf tea

17leftfeet thats not pointless , you a get a little surprise and it will be so much fun to see what they chose.

Passthecake30 Fri 15-Nov-13 11:36:26

Nothing. Parents don't get presents in my family....but dp might stretch to a couple of Lindt reindeers I guess!

I actually prefer it, and treat myself in the boots sale instead.

smallandimperfectlyformed Fri 15-Nov-13 11:30:03

I have asked for the new Agatha Raisin book and Call the Midwife (DVD, have read the books) but I'm quite tempted by reading all of Poirot too! Otherwise I'm pleased with chocolates, smelly stuff, really typically girlie presents (not make up though, very sensitive skin)

TallulahTwinkle Fri 15-Nov-13 11:23:03

Ooh, I have been googling all your lovely ideas, now I desperately want some Alex Monroe jewellery!

CrotchStitch Fri 15-Nov-13 11:16:02

A handmade flat cap- I will get this as DH is enraged that I wear his so he gets a cold head grin
Some North Face walking boots- I will get these as I desperately need new boots so will order them anyway, I would just rather unwrap them on Christmas Day grin
The GBBO book- I will get this as I ordered it from the Book People to bump my order up grin

TBH DH is well meaning but a little like a rabbit in the headlights in proper shops and not much better online. We also tend to order exactly what we want or need and I rarely have surprises as I am so fussy
