Mum, sis and Dh don't like to buy vouchers as a gift.

I read a lot but prefer ebooks.

I listen to lots of music but prefer downloading.

I recently gave away 6 bin liners full of clothes and I still have too many.

I have loads of shoes and handbags.

I have all the hair and make up stuff I could possibly want.

I'm really stumped but I know I'll feel fed up on the day if I don't get anything! Please help

Beauty treatment vouchers?

I'm not a candle gal but the mag subscription is a good idea thanks!

See, I'd love a voucher for my nail tech. I go monthly so it's something i would def use. They're all funny about bloody vouchers tho

Normally salons do gift vouchers though?

Get into candles. It has saved my bacon on many a birthday smile

Restaurant or short break vouchers?

Honestly none of them will buy vouchers.

I've added a uv lamp and various gelish polishes to my Amazon wish list. Watch one of them but me the polish and not the lamp grin

A Spicery subscription is an awesome present - having been on the receiving end of a couple.

Why are people so stubborn confused - they want to buy you a gift but don't want to buy something you would actually like or use - a voucher.

Ask for something from M & S, with the receipt, take it back and use the money to get something you want.

Or suggest no gifts for adults next year.

But if you want vouchers then surely that's what they should buy you!

I think they just like to have a "physical" gift iykwim
