I know there’s a few old threads on here but thought I’d start a new one for ideas.

Past successes for me over the years have included a date a month scrap book which had in it tickets to football games and concerts and cash for meals and planned day trips away (but took a long time to make and very expensive when you add it up but i suppose its money we’d spend throughout the year on entertainment anyway), a Bluetooth speaker before the days of alexis, a music sampler he’s always wanted, a magnetic bowl for screws and things (stocking), a gridit, little Lego sets (big kid at heart), dinosaur nanoblock (stocking), nice clothbound edition of a book he wanted to read, fancy rum, cute rum miniatures (stocking), hotel chocolate chocs, the usual socks/boxers, a snood, gloves and I can’t remember anything else!

Please share your ideas :D

'Was it expensive does it work well? I have loads of old VHS I'd like to transfer.'
As long as you have a vhs player , you then download the software onto your computer, then play the video , your computer needs a disc drive though . If you go onto You tube here is the link to follow, It cost me £22 from Amazon HTH

LexieLulu · 30/08/2018 23:05

I bought a remote control helicopter for about £15 off amazon as a stocking filler. He spent Xmas day playing with it.

Apple TV box, it kind of makes your normal tv into a smart tv. Since we've got it my DH cancelled sky, we just watch freeview, Netflix and now tv via this box. He always says that the best thing I've bought him

Lolly567 · 31/08/2018 22:10

Such good ideas!!

@mrsmadevans the cinnamon whisky sounds good and quite Christmassy! do you think someone who likes jack daniels very occasionally might like it? He normally prefers rum!
