I just can't think of ideas for myself for Christmas! Boring I know! Any ideas for not too expensive gifts? I have two young dc, like running and crochet, swimming. Cycling, and other things most women like such as jewellery, make up, face creams etc!

Any hit gift I might be missing?!!

Cashmere pjs (M&S so not as pricey as they would be elsewhere)
A generator (won't happen but I ask for one every year!)
New undies
a new dressing gown.

Thats' my list (I'm all about staying warm at the moment!)

I was about to post the same question OP. I was particularly hoping to get some ideas that are really useful to a mum of two small DC - eg clever gadgets or something that does all the housework.

My list so far has wellies, a wash bag, and tops suitable for breastfeeding...

Me too. There's nothing I want. I think "oh I might like so and so" then immediately think "naaa"sad
Well, what I do want is a lovely Christmas. I used to get really annoyed with df for always answering "nothing, I'm ok" when asked what he wants for Christmas/birthdays. He'd be pissed off if he actually got nothing. But I now understand for the first year. Getting old. sad

If you can't think of anything then why don't you ask for someone to sponsor a child/animal on your behalf or buy a charitable gift. No point in asking for something you don't really want/need for the sake of it.

Liz Earle cleanse and polish and maybe a few other bits
Nice bath oil
New PJs
Hat and scarf set (saw these in a Radley sale and loved them, my mum has got me them)
Voucher to go sales shopping
Slipper socks

Last year I asked for a good camera to take photos of the DCs. I got an amazing SLR so this year in asking for a photography course.

Some lovely suggestions! Thank you

I'll only get something small from my mum so I've asked for some chocolates and some bubble bath and I think she's going to get me a nightgown, I'm most excited about playing with dd's duplo on the day

TwoNoisyBoys Fri 07-Nov-14 17:22:25

I'd like......

The new Stephen Fry autobiography.
Anything in the L'Occitane Cherry Blossom range.
The new Jimmy Page book.
Any 'Nice' bubble bath (partial to Imperial Leather though, so not exactly expensive taste! grin)
A nice cashmere jumper (although I'd probably wreck it in the wash!)
Any Sanctuary Spa stuff (except the ginger body lotion which makes my skin burn :/ )
Honey Jack Daniels
The newly remastered Led Zeppelin CDs..... I, II, III, IV & Houses Of The Holy. I've got originals on vinyl and also on cd, so can't really justify the expense....but if SOMEONE ELSE were to buy them...... smile

Thanks Santa!

Radley bag (which I've already bought as I saw it reduced)
Popcorn maker
Books & book tokens
Silicone rolling pin
Maybe a laminator, not sure if I really want one

I'd like a microplane grater for parmesan/ginger. No-one will get it for me because it's for the house/kitchen and utilitarian so doesn't count as a gift, but there's no way I'd spend £20 on a grater for myself, especially when I have a functional one.

I'd use it often and it would make me smile, so on top of being something I wouldn't buy for myself, it's exactly what a gift should be IMO.

A USB record player smile

BadRoly Fri 07-Nov-14 18:26:01

A private number plate

My wish list is so long. Actually I have two lists - never-in-my-wildest-dreams, and perfectly reasonable and achievable smile Top of the second list is a lovely navy and black blanket scarf and an Urban Decay Naked 2.

MrsPnut Fri 07-Nov-14 19:53:14

A pair of emu slippers, my current pair have holes where my big toe pokes out (and have for the last year) and look disgusting, so I'd like a new pair. They are the most comfortable slippers I've ever had.

Hooded dressing gown
Personalised silver jewellery

Nobody's asked yet what I want though...
