    We have OH's family coming round for boxing day dinner at ours, we invited his brother whos 19 but not his girlfriend not too be rude but we already have 10 ppl coming and if the all brought gf/ bf's etc we wouldn't fit them in our house... anywho, shes a real bunny boiler and NEVER lets him go anywhere without her, she kicked up a fuss and i could see it would start a huge arguement between them so i told OH's bro he could invite her....:grr: now i got prezzies for everyone coming and not one fer her (i was going to put them on the table at dinner)... is it rude not to get her one cos she 'wasnt actually invited' of should i get her a little something???

    Phew!! Long story i know!!!

    No shes tight so she won't bring anything, she just text me asking if i'm buying drinks or she needs to bring her own.... cheeky cow!!! I got some in but if she wants to drink stupid amounts she can bring her own, its cost me a fortune anyways :grr:

    Suppose i gotta get to a shop now to get something...

    How rude is that?! If you didn't plan to go out again, you could always find her something from around the house? Wrap a lightbulb in some pretty paper and say you wanted to give her something 'useful'! :lol:

    Thanks for all the replies girls!!

    Problem solved, I had a brand new pair of comfy slipper sock things i got for myself from primark ages ago and havent worn yet.... i'll just give her them :dohh:

    Tis a shame shes coming really was looking forward to seeing BIL without her for a change as he never talks while shes there she just over powers and talks over him so hes just given up...
