I am looking for inspiration! My Mum is late 40s and I always struggle to buy for her, also have MIL, SIL and my sister to buy for and of course my own Christmas list to formulate grin

What would be your perfect present?

Bobbi brown or Mac make up palattes.

Nice dressing gown/nightwear/underwear.

A pretty cake-stand.

New boots.

Nice knitted dress.

New winter coat.

Ooh, new dressing gown, that definitely appeals to me. I think I might want an e-reader too.

I want a pair of brown boots for every day wear and a pair of fabulous heels, preferably very impractical and in pewter.

I honestly do not have a shoe fetish. grin

I had wanted a 'Sweetie' necklace until I just searched the internet for one and realised how much they cost!! shock Might ask for the candy version instead!!! grin

I would love some ugg boots

sweetkitty Thu 01-Oct-09 21:27:34

I want a netbook

Maybe a telescope to look at the stars.....but then it's one of those things that will end up in the corner of the room with jackets hanging on it or something grin

depressed by "my mum is late 40s"

however i fit your demographic and would love jewellery, silver with semiprecious stones, no costume jewellery (assuming gold is not an option!) and no "plating"

no smellies or scarves (or disguised scarves -- shawls, pashminas, shrugs etc)

or clarins self tan, lovely for a winter glow, fancy, and it makes old people look younger <dreams> but it actually does

no candles

I want an e-book but they are expensive.

Im getting my mum a voucher for a grow you own organic veg patch. They get delivered in the spring as little plants ready to go in the ground or pots so take away the messing about with cultivating seeds and re-potting.

I d quite like one of those blankets that you wear they are massive and look really cosy. my house is freezing.

Would be nice if the made baby ones too then my DD could get one.

I hope DP is looking over my shoulder as i type this!

oh I want an e-reader but the one that's in the states not the uk version as the USA one has so much more going for it. However it's unlikely to come out here.

Other than that I'd like lots of books and some clothes and a lie in and someone else to do the cleaning and cooking for a week.

I'd like an e-reader.

alwayslookingforanswers Thu 01-Oct-09 22:56:57

to celebrate it with my family (DH and children) with everything sorted out

ja9 Thu 01-Oct-09 22:58:31

what's an e-reader?

PictureThis Fri 02-Oct-09 09:04:02

one of those things where you download books onto it from the internet.

Snow and a big win on the lotto lol!

Daisydaydream Fri 02-Oct-09 13:52:56

I would like a new winter coat, something smart, in a bright colour, with a hood.

Warm brown flat winter boots.

An ironing board like my Mum's (very sad, I know)

Some nice face cream, and possibly that Protect and Perfect serum from Boots.

Carpet for the upstairs of my house.

And any little treats from Lush would be lovely as I used to buy all my toiletries from there but cant afford to anymore.

Glitz - am liking the idea of a blanket that you can wear <cosy>

I REALLY really want a Charity gift, like Oxfam goats or a community water pump or HIV+ community workers.
Nobody will get me what I want, because they'll perceive it as too impersonal.

Instead they'll buy me some dull household products (DH's relatives, item to be ungratefully donated to next preschool Easter Tombola) or some impractical and hard-to-suss high-tech gadget (DH, item to be flogged on Ebay when I reckon he's forgotten about it). SIGH.

Black handbag (The Bridge) I have my eye on

snorkie Fri 02-Oct-09 15:11:37

I'd like an auto-opener for my greenhouse window.

I would like a lie-in grin
