cheap shiny tat..... vases or horrible figurines they'll have to put it up in their home and see it every day!

or say graciously "we haven't bought pressies this year. we donated the money we would have spent on your to charity - i am sure you don't mind" - you could really do that actually - you would feel great and what could they say. Lots of charities have Xmas appeals and would appreciate the donation.

Taylor, you're good at this

6000 piece jigsaw, so they can't use their dining table for months until it's finished!
(And remove 3 or 4 pieces before wrapping it up!)

You could copy the awful MIL who gave a MNer several metres of knicker elastic.

yULeYSEES Sun 03-Dec-06 11:17:09

HumphreyCushiONtheFirstNoel Sun 03-Dec-06 11:18:29

taylormama Sun 03-Dec-06 11:19:23

anything which has on it "not for re-sale" like freebies from a hotel or free books which come with magazines ....

MrsXwithhorridILs Sun 03-Dec-06 11:19:41

ok. without too much detail she is a sah granny and he is an accountant..


they like to think they have high morals but i KNOW BETTER! Apparently other things are more important than child or grandchild
