DS is fixated with curious George and I've managed to get him one without having to sell a kidney to afford it!.

He'll be so happy (I hope!) and I can't wait to see his face smile

A tea subscription for my 17 year old. Although I haven't received it yet!

I'm proposing to my husband, for our 10 year anniversary. I'm very excited.

I remember a thread like this last year, it was lovely to read what everyone is excited about doing for others.
For me it's the Ikea play kitchen we've got for DD. We're going to set it all up after she's in bed so she can play with it as soon as she gets up. I can't wait to see how excited she gets!

Lenny lamb carrier so my toddler DD can give her doll a piggy back. Up to now I've been tying the doll on with ribbon. She's going to be so happy (I hope).

Ds1 and DD have adopted a meerkat for Ds2 from the zoo! He will be delighted grin
And I have bought DH a day out which he will love

I ordered my best friend a speciality ingredient she's been banging on about for more than a decade.

She will literally wet herself when she opens it!

I'm bouncing inside x

DD is getting a Wendy house (she's 2.9yo). DH is going to set it up pissed outside on Christmas Eve and it'll be the last present she sees. She will be pretty excited.

This thread has made me realise there isn't anything I'm particularly excited about giving tho year fsad, we've had to cut back a bit, so no wow presents.

May have to get a few last minute things in the sales the week before Christmas.

I got my DH tickets for Les Mis. He won't be expecting it at all and doesn't even know I know he likes it but I see him sneaking the cd into his car smile it will be a real surprise smile

Elizabethreallyismissing Wed 02-Dec-15 20:11:12

Oh I've got DH 2 albums as in vinyl records as we"ve recently got our turntable working! Got the Pulp Fiction sound track and Jonny Cash Legend! They are so nice much better than a CD or an ITunes voucher and he gave his vinyl collection away years ago. Not his main present but I"m really p!eased with it as a stocking filler.

myself and my husbands nephew have been plotting to bring him here (to Ireland from the UK) as a surprise for his nan. Just waiting on him to double check his holidays So I can book it. Hi is 18 and hasn't been over here in about three years so MIL will get a big surprise. Plan to call to her house and say "can you come out and give me a hand bringing your present in" and have him standing there!

Excited about dp's gift which is a beats pill.

Ds1 and 2 are getting adidas flux trainers which I would normally never buy them as they are stupidly priced so it will be a big surprise.

DTD 1 is getting a much coveted sewing machine and DTD 2 is getting a full set of monster high dolls.

Helenluvsrob Wed 02-Dec-15 20:14:29

The heated throws that I bought for the kids. They are always complaining of being cold, especially the ones at uni. I think thryll think wtf initially and half way through January it'll be " wow I'm warm now!"

DD is going to be 20mo this year, so the first Christmas that she notices I guess. I'm buying her a Playmobil doll house. She seems to be taking her dinosaurs to do human things in her play, so I figured a few little people might be right up her street. Tentatively bought the Playmobil advent calendar to see how she would take to it and she loved the little girl that you get on day 1! Have already ordered the dollshouse and can't wait to see her play with it - will remove teeny tiny pieces and save them for a future birthday/xmas/treat when she's less mouthy.

Dh ran the Great Wall of china marathon this year & ive had him a book made from his photos & had his medal framed. He has tons of medals from previous runs/triathlons but I know this one was really special.

hippoherostandinghere Wed 02-Dec-15 20:31:45

We've got DS a 2DS. He has no idea, he hasn't asked for one but has mentioned it for his birthday. I managed to get one for £9 by doubling uo my tesco points. He'll be very surprised!

I'm also excited about everything we've got DD, she'll love it all!

imwithspud Wed 02-Dec-15 20:34:30

Got my dp a PlayStation 4. Waited till Black Friday to get it and got it at a bargain price from tesco with club card boost. He thinks we are going to get one after Christmas with what ever Xmas money we get so it will be a real surprise. Cannot wait to see his face. He thinks I've got him a golf bag, but I told dm to get that for him as she was struggling for ideas anyway.

We got dd1 a wooden dolls house, I'm currently in the process of decorating the inside of it, it won't be perfect, in fact some of the 'wallpaper' I've put up has bubbled a bitblush but she's 3 so hopefully won't notice. It will be personalised for her. I hope she loves it!

We've also got the in laws a photo book of the dd's, from the dd's. I know they will love it and I can't wait to see their reaction when they open it.

There are a few more, I'm looking forward to giving gifts more than receiving them this year.

I've got my DH a pair of Diesel jeans that he's been lusting over for years. I think he'll be cross that I spent so much, but he really deserves something special for taking such good care of me and DS.
And I've got DS a baby doll that I know he will adore. He falls in love with every one he comes across.

CaitSith Wed 02-Dec-15 21:01:08

16 month old DS2 is utterly obsessed with the Twirlywoos, he's got a big red boat play set and I can't wait to see his face when he opens it. It's going to be like his wildest dream made reality grin

Peaceloveandpartyrings Wed 02-Dec-15 21:28:25

Cait I love the Twirlywoos myself and want the big red boat bath toy grin

mamaduckbone Wed 02-Dec-15 22:10:39

Ds2 is getting a new bike that he really wants (and needs - his old one has been too small since summer) and he is always priceless when he opens his presents so I can't wait for that. He kissed his knights castle when he was 3 and I think this year will be on a par (he's 6).

cro1234567 Wed 02-Dec-15 22:12:45

The ninky nonk activity train for 2 to DS, he is autistic and obsessed with the ninky nonk - goes nuts running round the living room when it's in - hope he loves it!

And snow glow elsa for 4yo DD

The baby will love the wrapping paper I think

MsAdorabelleDearheartVonLipwig Wed 02-Dec-15 22:56:53

We're getting the dds a brand new bike each. They've never had a new one before. Dd1 aged 8 has hand hand me downs from cousins and dd2 aged 6 has just learnt to ride a bike. Can't wait to see their faces.

I'm also quite looking forward to giving myself the lovely things I bought myself. I know I'll like them very much. grin

NeverNic Wed 02-Dec-15 23:05:17

Probably the lp player I've got for my dad and the Bing doll for DS1.
