DP and I are skint this year so have decided on a budget of £20 maximum each. I want to get him a few things but am struggling. So far I've got him a small bottle of Shiraz, a selection box, a bottle of ink for his pen, and a Rhodia paper notebook, but am now stuck.
Any ideas?
He is into photography, very fancy pens, Star Wars (but don't want to get anything too novelty, maybe a Lego set if I can find one for about £5?), and films.
Help please!

How about vouchers - designated driver / get out of a chore ' foot rub / sexual favours ;-) printed and stapled nice;y?

The list you have sounds lovely. What about buying a cheap ikea frame and framing a photo of scrabble tiles spelling out your names in a crossword format type thing?

To be honest I don't think you need our help. What you have sounds fabulously thoughtful.

Spend the rest on a film he might like and be done. Maybe a Terrys Chocolate Orange (usually £1 in Asda) or other little food item?

How much have you got left of your budget? Sounds like you may have spent most of it!

are you o2? if so check out o2 priority moments. theres quite a few things for free at the moment star wars related. bag of lollipops from whsmths, a lightsaber keyring from o2 shop

look on ebay for lego polybags - there the ones that came free with papers and theres a few about should be able to find for about £2-3 posted

how about a lego man keyring? sell them in the lego shop and im sure theres star wars ones

look out on groupon for cheap cinema tickets.

theres normally codes around for free/cheap photo gifts. so maybe a calendar, canvas, mug or keyring with a pic of the 2 of u on?
