DH is putting pressure on for me to make up my mine. I just don't know what I want. I mean I what everything, but just can't justify anythingsad.

Please share with me what you have asked for as I need inspiration.

Sorry if its been done before

Do you have a budget between you?

I have found it really hard to come up with ideas but here's my list (varying costs between £10 and £60 - that one not going to happen!)

Post strap for my DSLR camera
brolly with a button to put it up / down
necklace with DC names and birthstones
baby foot charm for my bracelet (a way to remember the baby I lost)
tickets to the Harry Potter studio tour
Kindle Voucher
Slipper boot thingys
voucher for some kind of pampering

I would be really happy with any one of those

A bar bag for my bike.

Fuck all.
We don't do presents for grown ups.
If we did I'd ask for a bike.Or a leatherman tool.Or a new rucksack.

You don't need to justify presents - that's the point!

A new sound system. Not sure what yet.

Dh and I don't do lists he thinks it is much more thoughtful okay for him he only has my presents to get. He is good at guessing what I want though from all the hints. This year I want a kindle fire or Ipad.

SilveryMoon Wed 31-Oct-12 07:23:06

We haven't ever really done presents for each other (me and dp) but this year there's a bit more money floating about so we might do this year.
I have hinted towards a Kindle. Not the new one though as I only want it for reading.
My mum will get me a new watch and my dad will probably buy me bubble bath/salts etc even though he knows they all irritate my skin! smile

A bike I think.

For a change, I actually have quite a few things on my christmas list this year, large variety of prices!

- new lens for my dslr camera
- miatui handbag - think this looks nice and I love handbags where you can organise yourself, my current one has one big space and I can never find anything (although I had planned on getting the pewter one and that's not on the website at the moment - arrrggghh)
- new little frying pan
- baking sheet that has no non-stick coating (difficult task these days...)
- box of chocolate cherry liqueurs just for me to gorge eat by myself!

I have just started collecting some ideas for my list, so far I have:

This top from White Stuff:

Some socks (White stuff or Fat Face)

an orchid plant

Subscription to Good Food magazine

Amazon gift card (£10-£20) to download some kindle books

Pandora bead for my bracelet

Benefit set: or this one:

I am not expecting DH to buy all of these items, will be very happy just with the top and some socks smile

We don't really do gifts for adults either but if there is something one of us wants and we can afford it we sometimes go ahead. I'm contemplating a Kindle ...

Littlemissimpatient Wed 31-Oct-12 11:02:04

It was an iPad and Harry potter tour tickets.
Now it's hopefully going to be a house if it all goes through ok.
I'd still like a pandora charm too.
DH is getting a new coat

miatui Wed 31-Oct-12 13:05:10

If you want the Pewter Grace bag.. email me or call, details on the website. We only have 2 left. C

Ithinkitsjustme Wed 31-Oct-12 14:31:15

I've asked my DM for a warm throw (to put round my shoulders when on mumsnet grin)
My DH is paying for me to go to the spa at Bath for 2 days with my DSis and DSiLs, and my DMil will give me money towards that.
Other than that I always ask for matching smellies - I love them.

SilkStalkings Wed 31-Oct-12 19:12:05

Found an antique folding screen in a junk shop and have instructed requested my dad to buy it and refurbish it for me.

CalamityJones Wed 31-Oct-12 19:16:25

I don't know for sure; but strongly suspect a Toast dressing down, some Elemis bath stuff and a piece of jewellery. Which suits me fine.

GoldPlatedNineDoors Wed 31-Oct-12 19:19:46

A onezie.

Dh doesnt know it but im getting him one too. oh how we will look together!

SouthernComforts Wed 31-Oct-12 19:20:38

Me and dp are contemplating a coffee machine, or a dryer.


MonsterBookOfTerrors Wed 31-Oct-12 21:49:34

Emporio Armani perfume
a butterfly scarf and some thinsulate gloves
an mp3 player

I also want Disney Brave dvd, but think I may pretend to get that for dd grin

MonsterBookOfTerrors Wed 31-Oct-12 21:52:00

Oh and a Chelsea shirt of ds and dd grin

Some potentially expensive (and not very enjoyable) dental work.

I've got some Unit Trusts to cash in (Hooray)

So I can spend it on some nice cosmetic dental work ( not so hooray)
But I'll be happy afterward I'm sure. (Keep telling myself).

I've asked for a silver bracelet and pointed him in the general direction of the kind of thing I like, apart from that it will be a surprise smile
