A copy of 'Gut - the body's most underrated organ' by guilia Enders. Present from my uni student DD. It was on my list.

I've nearly finished it already! It's so interesting.

Who knew organs could be underrated grin

Glad you enjoyed it.

All hand written by my son

My partner's seems to be the Sooty DVD I bought for him and our young son to watch together. Child is fast asleep, grown man has been watching the whole thing alone (and far too over-excited in his reactions!).

'Hogfather' book from my brother. Or maybe the cake mover (one of those round spatula thingys you see on GBBO) from my cousin.

A coffee mug with the 3 main potion types from the Elder scrolls game on it from DH. Makes me grin every time i have a cup of coffee (My own restore health, mana and stamina super potion)

my dad made me a spice rack. and stocked it.

I think it will change my life.

One of my sons made me a picture frame with a picture of the children.

My mum and dad got me a kitchen aid. I'm still shocked. I was shopping with her back in the summer and we saw them in John Lewis, I mentioned that I'd love one, but could never justify the money.

I do a lot of baking and have recently worn out my hand mixer. But talk about unexpected! I'm waiting for dc1 to make an appearance at the moment (6 days till my due date) so hopefully I'll get some time while I'm on mat leave to do some baking!

My in laws got me a collection of vouchers to treat myself once baby has arrived which was very sweet of them.

Well, the choice is between a box of liquorice allsorts and a kindle paper white, bought to replace my ancient kindle keyboard. I think the kindle just has it wink

My new slippers. It's the small things!

Also, unlike seemingly everyone else on the threads I'm reading, I've been really chuffed with all the smellies I've got.

New vaccines album and knitting bag made by mil.

Record player so I can listen to my mum and dad's -they are both deceased - old record collection (and build my own). Dh doesn't do thoughtful gifts often but when he does he is awesome.

Oh and my millions of smellies grin

Bars and bars of my favourite - bit too expensive for meany me to buy for myself - fancy scnantzy chocolate.

Mine was a charity gift - Polio Vaccinations for 100 children. I had said that I didn't really want anything as I am drowning clutter, and as my Mum is disabled due to having polio as a child it was a gift that meant a lot.

My favourite is my new Liz Earle face cleany things and a new electric toothbrush - I feel so clean when I go to bed grin

y0rkier0se Sun 27-Dec-15 14:13:40

Lurleene that's a lovely gift and very thoughtful!

Fluffy socks and new PJs

There's a photo of me and dp, it was taken in a photo booth, one of the ones where you get 4 different photos.

The position of our heads and my arm makes a heart shape, it's my favourite photo of us. My mum had it printed onto canvass. It means so much to me and was such a thoughtful gift. I may have shed a tear or two when I received it.

Best prezzie for me was vouchers for a local restaurant and an offer to look after our 3 DC (all under 5) for the evening.

From DSS mum and DSS

The James T Kirk moneybox, his autobiography (HUGE Trek fan here!) and a box of Tunnocks - which I have eaten whilst reading book! What a good brother I have!
