Re puzzle, what about a sudoku cube

Sorry only back now after doing the dishes & making up the packed lunches.

This is the one I bought for DH lense fish eye iPhone lense i expect it's the same or similar to the one you have bought.

I will have a look for the bacon jam now :-) thanks

Found it on Amazon. Great idea as he is an amateur photographer grin

Duvet hog - he does have an iPhone and an iPad.

Can you find the link?! Or point me in the direction of the thread.

I got Bacon jam from Selfridges.

Does he have an iPhone? There was a great fish eye lense linked on here that you attached to iPhone, it was only £6 quid inc p&p from amazon :-D

Where is the cheapest place to buy bacon jam?

He's not a book person and doesn't write much.

Any good nifty puzzles/mazes would be good, if anyone knows of any?

QueenofClean Tue 22-Oct-13 14:31:04

Sounds good - will go with iron man.

Any other suggestions would be fab...any ideas for posh crackers as will get him some jarlsberg nearer the time as his fab cheese, will also get him some Brie.

I'll look in Aldi for speciality cranberry sauce - goes lovely with Brie.

Posh popcorn? Joe and sephs do some lovely sounding ones

Right so far I have:

A pair of smartphone gloves - to use with his iPhone.
Ironman 3 on 3D blu ray - Amazon
Bacon Salt - Firebox
Tabasco chocolate - Firebox
Bacon Jam - Selfridges
Nutter Butter Biscuits - Selfridges
Cartwright & Butler Choc & Oat Biscuits - Selfridges
Tracklements Onion Marmalade - Selfridges

My DD's will get socks and pj's etc so I won't put that in there.

I'll add Christmas ale & a bottle of Jacques Cider as he likes that. Any other ideas...he's a techy man!

MortifiedAdams Tue 22-Oct-13 07:45:43

A couple of magazines
A bottle of real ale
A dvd

dashoflime Tue 22-Oct-13 07:45:16

Specialty condiments? Hot Sauce is good if he likes that sort of thing

QueenofClean Tue 22-Oct-13 07:42:44

All fab ideas so far smile

DharmaBumpkin Tue 22-Oct-13 05:59:16

Small bottles of whisky... Normally £2-3, means you can get a couple of posh brands to try smile

Chottie Tue 22-Oct-13 05:48:24

A key ring with a mini LED torch attached

A special mug

Waitrose have a range of speciality local beers with a tankard (3 for 2 at the moment)

QueenofClean Tue 22-Oct-13 05:23:23

Where do I get bacon jam from?

what's wrong with socks smile

QueenofClean Mon 21-Oct-13 20:58:51

Thanks bean smile

My DH eats any chocolate.

PigletJohn Mon 21-Oct-13 20:53:26

if that didn't work, it's Tesco's stock no. 270312569

PigletJohn Mon 21-Oct-13 20:46:48

Lindt chocolate if he likes is

Ritter bars if you can find them (German brand, also sold in Aldi)

Special mug possibly with PG tips.

Oooh Queenofclean that's a lovely idea...that I'm going to steal grin

Depending on budget: anything Hotel Chocolat for budget blowout (I recommend the salted caramel stuff!) or for budget bargain those £1.80ish box of seashell copy Guylain chocs from Lidl - they look more expensive than they are and are very moreish!

What everyone else said above (cheers!) plus maybe a joke/novelty item for shits and giggles <immature humour emoticon> grin
