If you could only spend £10-15 on DH for xmas, what would you choose?

We normally do an xmas stocking for eachother and prezzies under the tree, but that will have to be limited as it's suddenly hit us we don't have that much money left for xmas spending.

I think DH would rather not buy for eachother, but if we're giving to others I want to give him something.

Desk calendar. Star Wars mug. Hotel Chocolat chocolates.
I say this because that's what our kids are getting dh and they have the same budget.

Couple of bottles of fancy real ale type stuff/ecig juice/poncy cooking ingredientt - whatever he would like anyway but a nicer version of it
Book/dvd

We only ever spend that much on each other tbh. This year the budget is £10 plus a small £5 gift from our toddler DD.

So far I have got him RNLI socks and will get other small things like chocolate stirrers and a box of cadburys santa shapes and perhaps some more socks. My DD has got him a personalised Nutella jar. He doesnt drink or cook but likes chocolate!

Thanks for your replies. There's something from each of your suggestions I could get - desk calendar, bottle of something, chocolate and DH does like balsamic vinegar, nice pickles & chilli sauce, all of which we don't tend to buy often.

Any other ideas are still welcome.

We agreed £20 for each other - I don't need anything and neither does he. I have a hamper with beer, fav chocolates and snacks, 1001 movies book before you die and a dvd.

You could home make chilli jam. Hairy bikers do a good recipe and its v easy!

Iv bought this www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00S7R0UIA?keywords=vr%20cardboard%202&qid=1447792987&ref_=sr_1_5&sr=8-5

It's a box that you place your phone in and wear to make it like a virtual reality set. There's differs apps that can be dowloaded- race car, roller coaster etc. It was supposed to be a surprise until he said he was going to buy himself one, was quite pleased he is getting it. £10.99
