Since the kids came along DH and I spend £40-£50 on each other for Xmas but this year his business has done very well and he says that I deserve more than that (hurrah!) and has said to give him ideas of presents total value £200. the problem is I have everything I want materially, I struggle to find £50 worth of stuff usually.

So I thought -
Pandora Charm - £30ish
Perfume - £12 (my favourite is Just Pink by next, I think it’s nicer than any designer perfume)

After that I’m stuck. Help inspire me!

Nice bag.
New boots.

Voucher for hairdressers/facial or something similar. Tickets for a gig or tickets to Harry Potter studios with hotel for the night and no DC would be top for me.

Amazon kindle paperwhite - mine is invaluable I read so much more now as I can pick up in between jobs/doing things with kids.

A really nice blanket for snuggling on the sofa.

A box full of different flavoured tea and a new mug/tea pot. (I love teapigs but can't justify the cost for everyday)

I would like a Nintendo snes mini to reminisce about games I used to play and show the girls.

Voucher for underwear shop so I can get properly measured and buy pretty bras. I like boux avenue but can't currently justify the cost!

New illustrated harry potter book. I would also love a hufflepuff scarf.

Quirky tshirts, printed leggings and new vans/converse.

I'd recommend the Alison Moore website to give you inspiration! I have some lovely earrings she made and also gave some to friends. I'd LOVE some of her rings!

Also on the craftmaket theme have a look at Fraser Knitwear in Shetland. I have a beautiful cowl scarf from there which was a present from my mum.
