So each year I get DH an item which he has to guess what it's for! previous buys have been square eggs garlic peeler . Item is gift wrapped but with no packaging or instructions and no Internet access either.

However this year I'm stumped, anyone got ideas?

Avocado slicer? Mushroom brush? Gadget for taking the spidery bit out of strawberries? The Lakeland catalogue is full of tiny gadgets.

Fly - grin

I like the bag thingy, think that'll have him stumped.

Any more?

I use these mosquito sting relief clicker things a lot and people always ask me what they are:

only really useful if you are going to a hot country soon though

(and yes, they do really work!)

PS I have a pineapple corer thing, and they are rubbish, it just comes out all mushy, only good for juicing.

If you can't find them I can get them like they are going out of fashion - they tend to have a stone / bit of glass in them though.....let me know

katz thank you - for this thread, as this year I'm buying stuff for gadget freaks lovers, and I'm clueless, so hopefully I will be mystified on christmas day about what to do with something different smile

I have one of these

He'll never guess.

I saw it on tv couple years ago, ordered immediately. Never used grin

hdoodle - the cupcake corer could be perfect plus i'll actually use it afterwards!

garlic zoom

ice cream maker

What do you put in your cupcakes, Katz?

Hdoodle - I make a triple lemon cake which is a lemon sponge with lemon icing and extra zesty lemon curd, I also put jam in the middle of plain sponge ones. I've also put caramel in chocolate ones too.

That sounds divine!!!

They're very good, even if I do say so myself!
