I still need to buy 3 presents and have no idea what to get, I'm normally done by the start of December so this is rather annoying!

I need presents for men I don't know very well, extended relatives. Two in their 30s and one in 50s. I don't know if any drink. Please help!

How much are you planning to spend ? If I get really stuck for people at work, I often buy them a lottery ticket... ( and suggest they remember me if they win!)

My Mum gave all the men a kind of plug in torch a couple of years back, and my Uncle (by marriage, we don't know him well, but he very hard to please) is still raving about how fabulous it is.

It sits in a holder and stays plugged in, it has a nightlight bit at one end so as it gets dark the nightlight comes on,but then if the torch is removed from the holder or the power goes off, the torch is charged and just lights up. So you're not searching for it in a power cut or anything.

She gave DH one was well, DS is very entertained by it.

Ny DS has this torch. We love it.

Why do you have to buy them a present? Sounds like the kind of gift exchange that needs to be knocked on the head to be honest.
