Everyone is asking me for Xmas present ideas for me and I just don't have a clue.
What do you want for Xmas?

MairzyDoats Thu 14-Nov-13 23:57:25

A panini press, some John Lewis mercurised silver candlesticks, sheepskin scuffs and books.

MairzyDoats Thu 14-Nov-13 23:57:56

Ooh, converse... Now there's an idea...

BigWellyLittleWelly Thu 14-Nov-13 23:59:00

A bloody great big wicker basket
Some jewellery
The ability to lose two stone of baby weight overnight
A white stuff skirt

I've got no one to buy me anything

I could give the dcs some money to buy me something but that seems a bit pointless really

MairzyDoats Fri 15-Nov-13 00:03:35

Aww, 17 I think you should do that. If they don't have money of their own at least you'll be getting a gift from someone who loves you.

Me (asked on a spur of the moment): something for back garden where you can burn logs, because I love open fire in the winter and there are no fireplaces in our house

He planed: iPad (but I would have to share with him and DC)

What I really want: a niche perfume, gorgeous but eye-wateringly expensive

I have asked for a unicycle every year for the past 10 years or one ever obliges.

agendabender Fri 15-Nov-13 00:41:43

DH is giving me a ring sling, and I'm hoping my parents will get me a wrap sling. What I really REALLY want is to make it to 37 weeks with DC2 and not have another premmie. 37 weeks would be the 27th December, so Christmas Day would do me really!

Morrissey's autobiography
Agatha Christie Poirot books
Blue and white crockery

No I'm not 70 grin

70isaLimitNotaTarget Fri 15-Nov-13 09:37:17

No I'm not 70

Ahem,,,,,, taking my NN in vain hyena? wink

I was drawn into Waterstones by the Morrissey autobiography. As a teenager in the 80s (the BEST era) I might be tempted to buy this.

Impomea Fri 15-Nov-13 11:04:30

A dog (won't get one )sad

gamerchick Fri 15-Nov-13 11:09:02

Door murals. I've been very clear on the subject.

CrotchStitch Fri 15-Nov-13 11:16:02

A handmade flat cap- I will get this as DH is enraged that I wear his so he gets a cold head grin
Some North Face walking boots- I will get these as I desperately need new boots so will order them anyway, I would just rather unwrap them on Christmas Day grin
The GBBO book- I will get this as I ordered it from the Book People to bump my order up grin

TBH DH is well meaning but a little like a rabbit in the headlights in proper shops and not much better online. We also tend to order exactly what we want or need and I rarely have surprises as I am so fussy

TallulahTwinkle Fri 15-Nov-13 11:23:03

Ooh, I have been googling all your lovely ideas, now I desperately want some Alex Monroe jewellery!

smallandimperfectlyformed Fri 15-Nov-13 11:30:03

I have asked for the new Agatha Raisin book and Call the Midwife (DVD, have read the books) but I'm quite tempted by reading all of Poirot too! Otherwise I'm pleased with chocolates, smelly stuff, really typically girlie presents (not make up though, very sensitive skin)

Passthecake30 Fri 15-Nov-13 11:36:26

Nothing. Parents don't get presents in my family....but dp might stretch to a couple of Lindt reindeers I guess!

I actually prefer it, and treat myself in the boots sale instead.

mamathechicken Fri 15-Nov-13 13:13:58

17leftfeet thats not pointless , you a get a little surprise and it will be so much fun to see what they chose.

kelly21 Fri 15-Nov-13 20:33:29

i have asked for a pandora charm and some liz earle stuff

forcookssake Fri 15-Nov-13 22:03:20

Toetoe socks, Liz Earle cleanse and polish, DM biker boots, Nashville CD grin
I may have already ordered some of these in case older relatives give money towards 'something I'd enjoy' and meanwhile clocking up the overtime to make up the difference, with any unaccounted £s being saved for the sales!

CremeEggThief Sat 16-Nov-13 10:45:51

Nothing. I'll probably get £20 from my mum and something small from my DS. If I can afford it, I'll get myself a jet and silver necklace.
