Apparently my husband had what he thought was a really good idea for a Christmas present for me. However, doing some googling for reviews, apparently, he found that "mumsnet totally hates it and slags it off, so it's back to the drawing board".

He won't tell me what it is, though. So what is it that you hate?

I hate people who say 'Sainsbos and MaccyDs'. I saw the perfect gift for the female misanthrope in Sainsbos <shudder> today, it was a wine glass and mini wine bottle with 'Girl's Night In' on it.

Not very helpful for you OP.

Right now I hate my boss but I doubt your husband is likely to be buying you a gay man with an obsession about everything being in a straight line angry

I love waterfall cardigans! They cover up a multitude of sins. Everyone on Mumsnet hates the Asda Christmas advert!

Oh my god it was a basket of shit hamper wasn't it grin

The first time he saw the Asda Christmas advert he shouted at the TV, so I doubt it's that. It might be a hamper. Don't let it be a hamper.

It is a spa day isn't it bet it was I hate boxes of celebrations or heros why would i want that mother EH hmm

Apparently it's a physical item not a voucher or such thing. So no spa day or center parks.

Was it some sort of kitchen appliance? Or a steam mop?!

You do realise, WidowWadman, that you're going to have to come back here on Christmas Day to tell us what it might have been ... and what DH bought you instead of the 'MN hated gift'? grin

They're rather nice shiny black Hunter wellies. I'd never have guessed but am rather pleased.

ooooh how fab!! I would love them!!

Why do Mumsnetters hate them?


HollaAtMeSanta Tue 25-Dec-12 18:45:20

Wait, are the Hunters (nice) what he actually got you? What was he going to get before he found out that Mumsnet hates it?

ebersneezer Tue 25-Dec-12 18:47:38

Fish and seafood. Luckily no one has ever bought it for me.

SoleSource Tue 25-Dec-12 19:07:15

Here is your prawn ring I bought you ebersneezer grin

WidowWadman Wed 26-Dec-12 00:07:11

holla it was a double bluff - he never let mumsnet really deter him but wanted to get me guessing.
It's silly but the hinting and guenssing and bluffing etc is what makes it fun

ebersneezer Wed 26-Dec-12 00:11:48

Hmm prawn ring, it was beautiful! Thanks.

If anyone spies a bargain for one in a charity shop tomorrow, yup it's still fresh grin

Some sort of present for the house and not really for you, like a vacuum cleaner of potato peeler with a sharp knife handle.

Or that ugly egg separator that makes the white look like snot coming out of the nostrils of the jug.
