My nan has some Dents gloves which are lovely & soft (TK Maxx has loads in - v barginous at £18 instead of £50)

Oh nozzer she might like some gin but perhaps too much so maybe I shouldn't wink

The gloves sound nice too , we're seasoned tk maxx shoppers so will have a look next time I'm in

Yes, Apple do it but don't expect a lot off an ipad (think it was about £30/40 quid last year) think the discount on macs is a little better. John lewis have already said they will price match and you get a longer warranty of you buy from them. I'm buying myself an ipad this year so am waiting until Friday although I don't know who I will be buying it from yet.

Thanks everyone for your replies , I'm very disorganised this year and it's the first year I'm hosting Christmas Day too confused

Something lovely from M&S which she will return and buy several not-so-lovely Per Una "bargains" with during the sales.

In my family we call this a "fabric gift token".

FelixFelix Wed 26-Nov-14 16:36:53

I'm getting her some vouchers for afternoon tea at Bettys and will probably wrap them up in a nice mug with some chocolate Brazil nuts (her favourite).

pebblepots Wed 26-Nov-14 20:04:12

Pasta bowls and a garden centre voucher (as requested)

Mine is in her 70's and I like to buy lots of little things so she has loads to open because my dad is crap and just gives her money.

I've bought my mum a stainless steel cafeterie (as requested!) and will get a nice bag of coffee and a coffee scoop thing to go with it.

My mum has asked for a kitchen apron so I'll get her one grin Also going to get her and my dad a joint present of a cinema membership.

Nocturne123 Wed 26-Nov-14 20:42:18

I'm still laughing at 'fabric gift token' .

These are lovely , present idea theft is happening as we speak grin .

Unfortunately I can't get her tickets to anything as she has bad anxiety if she drives or is driven more than about 15min away from home .

a set of murder mysteries from book people
school photos of the boys
lush bath bomb
mug with her fave flowers on

My mum wants a Pandora bracelet as she received a charm for her birthday so I'll get one of those and probably some lush stuff.
