I am usually so on the ball with Xmas presents and would have got them all by now. But this year (first with DD) I have lost my knack of buying original, personal gifts.

Can anyone help me get anything for -

FIL - retired, enjoys beers, football, reading, is quite intellectual and sensitive.

MIL - workaholic doctor, doesn't have many hobbies and due to work being high demand doesn't get a lot of time to relax (so bubble bath things never utilised).

I have "buyers block"... Please help!!

What's the budget?

Oh sorry should have said, probably around £30 each? Thanks for replying!

a Coco chanel soap, it’s about £18.
A moleskine notebook?
Theatre vouchers?
Some original art from Artfinder?

And this for FIL? www.flavourly.com/products/mikkeller-collection/ (there may be a discount on the Christmas referrals thread)

A book each? If they're both intellectual I'm assuming they enjoy reading?

FIL - selection of craft beers, with peanuts and pork scratchings to go with them

MIL - cashmere wristwarmers or a nice scarf

Liking the craft beers ideas for FIL!
I also really like those bags but MIL is bad and scarf collector so I don't think they'd get used unfortunately. I'm thinking of getting one of those bags for DM though 😍
