So it's that time of year when I am asked for what I would like for Christmas, usually my parents would like an idea, so would DP and his parents. So need at least a few things. But this year I am stuck, I can't think of anything I would like - so I thought I'd ask wise mnetters to help me create a list grin

Sadly no vouchers allowed as I'm told vouchers aren't a wrap-able present rubbish family rule

I'm getting a mini gin still and a tour of a gin distillery as my main presents. Some naice smellies and a £25 Amazon voucher for my kindle (I know you said no vouchers but.....)

A new dressing down to replace threadbare monstrosity that I currently use.

I'm going to ask for some new converse trainers as my current ones are a couple of years old now and starting to fall apart. I was going to ask for another sensible black pair, but then I saw these:

If people ask for some other ideas, I'd like some warm PJs that I can breastfeed easily in (DD2 is due next month) and a massage voucher.

I'm getting vouchers from DM and exPIL which I'll probably spend on a big splurge at the Clarins counter, so lots of lovely skincare and make up.

I'm also hoping DD might get me some slippers, I'll probably have to give her the money though.

I've already bought myself a Clarins Advent Calendar.

MrsLindor Wed 19-Oct-16 19:57:08

GinThief I'm allowed vouchers but not cash, I'm not trusted to spend cash on myself.

Google play/iTunes vouchers for films I am a nightmare with DVDs/DVD players I not only break I manage to lose them!!! Google play especially has loads of great 80's films.

Geeky house wares - eg star wars teapot, dr who salt n pepper set,

PJs, dressing gown, slippers, bed socks - always need.


The good but £££ moisturiser I like.

Palomb Thu 20-Oct-16 20:41:10

Wildlife cameras
Skyrim remastered
Perfume - I'd like some Tom Ford black orchid but I think that might be stretching it a bit!

Fascinating. Love the converse and the throw. We're is the mini gin still. I have never heard of such a thing?

Portable sewing machine.

New Celtic sheepskin slippers . Closest thing to heaven I have ever owned. I swear I moan with pleasure when I put them on !

Massively impressed with the organisation shown here. We always do this the week before Xmas, and Amazon prime has to deliver. Maybe everyone lives near shops ??
