because I haven't got any clue. Literally no ideas at all.....and people are going to ask me what I'd like, and I'm just going to sound like an idiot saying, "I don't really want/need anything" just like I do every year.

So please tell me what you want so I can pass it off as my own opinion....

I’ve asked for slippers and chocolates as I couldn’t think of anything else! Not much help I’m afraid, there’s nothing I need.

The M&S beauty advent calendar.
(I bought a dress for work so I was able to buy it for myself smile )

I need slipper boots, you know the ones that are furry inside and just slip on so handily.

Also want perfume and good smelly candles for the house.

Also a particular frying pan😬

And I'd be happy with a voucher for a spa day.

I'd love high quality fleece pj's - I'm due a baby just after Christmas and love new pjs to wear after baby.

Any artwork, beautiful house stuff, etc. Goes down well with me.

Oh and nice candles, and a decent portable speaker (for work purposes)

I want really nice comfy pyjamas.
The bad girls complete box set blush
The new p!nk album
something nice that I can eat.

Any of those would be fine with me, although the pyjamas is what I want most.

I always want money to go to Tolkien's birthday supper.

Charity gifts. If you don’t want it, and don’t need it, channel the money to someone who would benefit.

Nikephorus Fri 24-Nov-17 13:59:46

I couldn't pretend to like any of those ideas! I've bought myself a load of books, some Thorntons bags of chocs, some Lego (!) and a couple of dvds. I think I spoiled myself grin But then I don't get presents from anyone else (which is fine by me)

gingerclementine Fri 24-Nov-17 14:00:56

I want:

A spiralizer
Cashmere socks or gloves
A new leather purse
Hiking socks
loads of books
Origins Ginger bubble bath
Flowers or plants of any sort

I'd also love a slice of that squidy wedge shaped overpriced nougat but I'm supposed to be trying to lose weight so it's not on my list.

If I got any of those from anyone I'd be very pleased.

Pandoraslastchance Fri 24-Nov-17 14:04:13

Slippers but other than that I've got no ideas. I'm just difficult to buy for.

whoareyoukidding Fri 24-Nov-17 14:04:24

There's a really nice leather jacket in LKBennett right n0w - black with a furry collar, and they have 25% off right now. Even with the discount it's a lot of money though sad

MoistCantaloupe Fri 24-Nov-17 14:05:29

I never know what I want so I ask for things I regularly use i.e. Makeup, bath things, or a voucher!

NoFuckingRoomOnMyBroom Fri 24-Nov-17 14:05:56

Amazon Echo & Gin

SewButtons Fri 24-Nov-17 14:06:46

I want nice coffee mugs and a stovetop espresso maker. I'd have bought the espresso maker myself except I can't decide on what colour I want.

BarbarianMum Fri 24-Nov-17 14:08:45

Slippers and books hete. And a raised bed for the allotment (that's my big present).

user1489152320 Fri 24-Nov-17 14:09:54

Nice bottle of gin, comedy gig tickets, everyday earrings, mag subscription, CDs, money to go on my Kindle for books

I always have a list! I finally persuaded DH that we should do stockings and buy each other a few bits from a list, it was really good last year - a mix of fun surprises and things I really wanted!

On my list:
A new kindle.
Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt.
A necklace from Muru.
A new purse.
A good book or two to read over the holiday period.
