I've started my official Christmas list today.
I write everyone down that I need to buy for and then what I need to get.

I always spend a more on mum, dad, brothers, sister and nephew etc but I'm stuck on extended family.

my partners side always buy each other a small gift and as tradition we all meet on Xmas eve and swap.

we tend to spend up to a tenner on each person and usually opt for a bath set.

this year o wanted to get something different as we usually get the same things shock . they are mainly women with an age range from 30 to 65.

I'll be almost 9 months pregnant come Xmas so nothing homemade.

any suggestions?

Paperbacks? A Kindle voucher? Lovely socks? Lovely chocolates? Lovely coffee? Prosecco? Wrist warmers?

Actually, that's just my present wish list grin.

Check out Not on the high street for some lovely bits and pieces.

I think some of these will be on my Christmas list.

Christmas Yankees are the best. Sat by the fire with my hot chocolate watching Xmas films with a Christmas cookie burning away brew smile

I was thinking of doing a hamper for all the ladies in the fam with yankee samplers and holders... just not sure what else I'd add. Maybe hot chocolate, homemade treats and a book now you've said that... But thats a bit random haha.

Aww congratulations! I've been pregnant over Christmas with both of my babies so know it can be exhausting to say the least! Exciting!

I like to reason it as I teach my kiddies by example not to be discriminate against anything, least of all seasonal films grin so fair game all year I say!

Excellent point, a weekend of Elf, the polar express and the Grinch then grin

I definitely do not want the kids discriminating against anything so this will teach them well.

I've never been so close the end at Christmas, with both ds 1 and 2 I was only 3/4 months gone.
atleast I won't have to watch what I eat. all the more cheese and crackers for me smile
