The adults in my family are doing a secret santa type jobby where we will have a £40 budget and only have to buy for one person each (I will buy for DH seperately)

however, we each have to come up with a 'wishlist' of ideas at that price so that we actually get something we want!.....

I am stuffed if I know what I want, help - mumsnet I seek your wisdom!

Our family do the same, but we send around a wishlist with things such as most wanted DVD/book/chocolates/wine.
Shoe size, clothes size (top and bottom)
Any specific present requests.

The buyer then gets to chose any of the things on the list up to the agreed li it.

This is true milk, however the only things I would like are way over budget, and more a dream list!

Oh cheesynutter...

I have a kindle so no need for books,
Have a million and one candles
Can't think of a box set I would like!

I am literally a nightmare every year....

Kindle voucher, massage or beauty voucher for local salon, cookery stuff, make up, beauty stuff you wouldn't usually buy yourself, ticket for a show/concert/cinema/meal.

Do you have any hobbies?

Perfume?

oh beauty vouchers are a good idea, I love pampering but never book stuff myself

Don't have time for any hobbies really, between working full time, studying with OU, 2 DC !

I have a pair of cashmere wrist warmers from Brora which were £36 and are a lovely treat.
