I am so stuck on what to get for in laws and dh is absolutely useless, I know if I leave it to him it'll turn into a big rush on Christmas Eve.

We usually just exchange token presents so not looking for anything particularly expensive.

So we have mil/fil, neither have any hobbies really, don't drink alcohol, not into toiletries/beauty products.

Brother and sister are both early 20s, live at home and have enough spare cash to buy what they want whenever.

Can you tell me what you've bought so I can shamelessly steal your ideas please? fsmile

Pyjamas and slippers for the in laws. They’re the same. No hobbies, don’t drink, allergic to beauty products and perfume. Also got them some personalised Christmas tree decs. They’re a friggin nightmare to buy for. I got them a food Christmas hamper last year. Good luck. X

Nerf gun for bil confused was on his amazon wish list.

Cinema vouchers for sil and bil

Everyone is too hard to buy for!

Mother will have a garden bench and bird table.
MIL and husband will have ferry tickets and meal out vouchers for when they use our cottage. Plus stockings.
Others get cinema or theatre vouchers or similar unless we know something they particularly want.
Those that are staying all get stockings.
Our children obviously get more.
