Family are asking what I'd like for Christmas. I'm drawing blanks.

I reckon on about £20ish as that's that I'd spend on them.

What are you suggesting? smile

Posh nail varnish?

Waterproof gloves so you can throw snowballs without getting cold wet hands

Gift gards to my favourite shops. I ask every year but still get potions and lotions from Boots/Body Shop I never use and they go to charity shops. But I still keep asking, I won't give up.

I just ask for money now, there's nothing I particularly want & I'm wary of vouchers/gift cards in case the shop closes down before I spend them.

I usually have a nice time spending in the sales grin

Those lovely food presents in John Lewis that the unimaginative buy for virtual strangers. I love all that shizzle and always get given thoughtful gifts, which I often don't like. This year I am demanding posh olive oil, amaretti biscuits and those weird pink chocolates you never see at any other time of year.

I've asked for iTunes vouchers and Amazon vouchers so I can get book for my Kindle.
My OH is getting me some cheap speakers for my iPod touch.

I'm going for donations to a charity that is close to my heart as this year I can think of nothing that I want or need.

notnow - what pink chocolate? <intrigued>

My mum is going to pay for a onesie for me for my birthday grin (if I can find one that fits me!), for xmas we are asking for a contribution towards paint - our landlords said ages ago we can decorate our bedrooms ourselves but can't really justify paying for it as a random thing if that makes any sense.

Fuzzpig the champagne flavoured ones in a round box from Charbonnel and Walker. I have no idea if they're nice, but would like to know

fuzzpig Sun 09-Dec-12 11:47:29

Ooh they sound interesting! I can rarely resist trying something new where chocolate's involved grin

DDad is buying a stereo between me and DH! I've suggested new earrings from Dsis. It's tricky with me being pregnant!
Jammies always go down well.

Those C&W chocolates cost £10 for the small box of 7 chocs!

I received a double layer box from my work colleagues once, had no idea they were so pricey, we just scoffed 'em, shared them with DC and anyone passing. Then discovered they cost so much!

They were nice, very strong, I wouldn't pay the money for them though, actually prefer a nice miniature hero or celebrations if I am honest!

fuzzpig Sun 09-Dec-12 17:44:18

Yikes, I'll just stick to the Ferrerro Rocher then <common> grin

The latest Gordon Ramsay cookbook. Would also like Guild Wars 2, but keep forgetting to mention it. A replacement for my Kenwood mini-chopper (best kitchen gadget ever) that I broke by trying to grind hard Parmesan in it. Johnny Depp.
