Hoping someone can come up with a good idea for bil.

Previous gifts that have gone down well are spicery subscription, axe for wood chopping, tickets for gigs and word map of uk.

He doesn't have hobbies, they have a young baby so tickets not much use now. I'm completely stuck!

Ideally something I can still get online or can send dp to buy as I'm stuck in bed with shingles.

Also need stocking bits for dp that I can get on Amazon or similar, I do have prime, as obviously can't send him for those. I'm normally great at this but am feeling horrendous and can't think. He likes drawing, marvel and peanut butter!

Thanks in advance fsmile

Any ideas for small gifts for various uncles/grown up male cousins also appreciated!

I saw on here a company called beerbods, it's a gift subscription and they get a different beer delivered every week. I'm getting it for DP.

Or cineworld so a gift box. Tickets, voucher for drinks and popcorn for £20, you could give them that with a homemade babysitting voucher?

Peanut butter m&ms I got on amazon one year for my peanut butter loving DP too

Good ideas! I don't live near them so can't babysit annoyingly. Beer bods sounds good. Ill have a look. Thanks!

Does bil like Nandos or similar? You can get gift sets of sauces and a mini skillet thing in Boots, I'm thinking of that for my difficult (to buy for, he's very easygoing fgrin) brother.

I'd have loved a dvd box set or voucher for such when we were stuck in with a new baby, anything like that?

I'm just sticking a full jar of peanut butter in my dh's and ds's stockings, as they both get through so much! Tesco have peanut butter and chocolate, or peanut butter hot drink powder, as well as Reese's bits, could just stick them on an online shop.

Bottle of ale or novelty alcohol

Lots of novelty Marvel stuff on Amazon, pens, wallets, sketchbooks. Rolled up t shirt?

Good set of pencils like These?

I have got these slippers for the men in my life. I also have a pair and they are the best slippers I've ever had!

You're all brilliant, I'll have a good look now at Amazon and slippers. He does need some actually, he has taken to wearing mine as his have fallen apart.

Online shop is a good idea, I have one coming I can edit still.
