DH is getting an Xbox and a couple of games. I'm geting a DS Lite

notnowbernard Tue 25-Nov-08 14:17:31

I have no idea

Am tempted to bin present-buying for each other and suggest getting a new bathroom window

But is not really getting in the spirit of things, is it?

Have got DD a Ralph Lauren oull-along suitcase thingy (overnight size), a Wii fit, a tassimo coffee thingy (he has been asking for years - I am hoping he keeps it on his desk in work and not in out kitchen), a photo calendar from DD and DS, and i;ll get him a couple of stocking filler things as he has been a good boy this year! :-)

SaveFerris Tue 25-Nov-08 14:22:37

I meant DH, not DD. :-)

Rhubarb Tue 25-Nov-08 14:23:55

Hmmm, I only have around £40 to spend on him.

He'd LOVE a Wii thingy, or an Xbox. Could I make one out of card and sticky back plastic do you think?

Rhubarb Tue 25-Nov-08 14:24:38

What a good idea to hint to your kids that it's time to leave home Ferris! wink

SaveFerris Tue 25-Nov-08 14:25:00

Absolutely :-)

How about a used one from Game? Not sure how much they are tho.

Rhubarb Tue 25-Nov-08 14:26:04

Well I've looked at used Nintendo DSs on Ebay as I had a vague notion of getting dd one, but they are going for around £60 used, so I needn't bother looking at the Xboxes.

MadameCastafiore Tue 25-Nov-08 14:53:39

Goping in a short while to get DH some tight fitting lycra trouser jobbies for running as he came home from his rum on Sunday with a near frostbitten todger! Not nice in any respect I can tell you.

Luckily just picked upa 30% off nike voucher at our gym too so am even going to save a bit of money on them too.

Also got him some slippers and DVDs - he got me a dog - and he will get me other stuff when I buy it with his CC!

squeaver Tue 25-Nov-08 14:57:36

Well he's getting a tripod for Christmas. We're so loving towards each other (I'm getting a new diary)...

His b'day is not long after Christmas though and he's getting:

- something from this indian cooking website

- a Carl Hiassen book about golf

- a large pepper mill (fnar, fnar)

- the DVD of the interviews David Frost did with Richard Nixon

and probably some socks. He quite likes getting new socks.

Rhubarb Tue 25-Nov-08 14:57:40

"trouser jobbies"???? Isn't a jobby what you do on the loo? Are you saying that your man goes jogging with little jobbies in his trousers?

MadameCastafiore Tue 25-Nov-08 14:59:37

Noooo - although he has to nip home sometimes in a hurry because running makes him want to go rather urgently!

Getting him those trousers that are really full length cycling shorts so his todger isn't flapping around int he wind getting cold.

If he did anything in his pants he wouldn;t be coming home with them on they would have to be binned on the way - I don't even like his parping in my presence!
