Where are you going? What are you going to buy? I need inspiration. We are heading to Christmas markets in Manchester end of Nov.

I'm going to JL for some other mundane jobs and going to look for inspiration.

I'm pretty much decided on a Sylvanian something dor DD6 but stuck for DS4.

I might up some bits for other family that catches my eye.

Might get some more baubles!!

But MUST NOT buy any cards!! I've got 15 years of 'spare' cards to get through!

LOVE the Manchester Xmas markets. Although we did get a little Xmas tree from one of the stalls then came back after spending Xmas day with MIL to find our flat cover in black fly!!!

I don't have a list. And no planned 'big' ideas for the DC this year so it'll just be lots of little/medium things. I might accidently blow the yet-to-be-decided budget. Whoops.

I've never been to them before I'm really looking forward to it. Enjoy your day

I'm going Christmas shopping too grin

Oh and I work on the Manchester Xmas markets, they aren't as magical on my side - although I do get free mulled wine and/or hot chocolate, depending how rough my day has been wink

Hope your day was better than mine NoCapes

John Lewis was rubbish for toys!!

And DH put on a shock face when I wanted to buy a lovely £25 Santa. That killed the mood slightly.

Managed to find some 'Grosseries' for DS stocking. It's a blind bag thing. I think like Shopkins but 'gross'.

Ah never take your husband Christmas shopping - that's the answer! I took my very excitable Mum, she encourages lots of impulse purchasing grin
