thanks for all the suggestions - some good ones but yet to find that 'eureka' present. Why are the men I know so hard to buy for?

A coffee bean grinder, Bodum one.

Coffee is pretty much the basis for all his presents grin

Oh, for Ddad, wine tasting tix for him and his DP (School of Wine in Manchester, looks really good). DBro wool and leather gloves from COS.

Men are hard to buy for!
DH is getting aftershave and then a stocking full of his favourite treats eg. Chocolate, chilli jam, posh marmalade and some interesting beers.
As we had a baby this year both our dads are getting a framed photo of their granddaughter and perhaps a book (bit of a cop out but maternity leave means we are strapped for cash this year!).

Uncle - painting of his dog - by me, bit worried, hope he likes it.

DH - never know what to get so I have bought a Badedas (because he loves it) and a bottle cinnamon flavoured vodka that has real edible gold leaf pieces floating about (because it looks fun).

my dad died a few years ago and DH buys for FIL and rest of family so I don't have to worry about anybody else.
