    I like the idea. Personally i have bought quite a few pressies already its just 3 of my 4 nieces i'm struggling with The older one who's 11 wants grown up stuff, the next ones 8 and wants lots of boys toys like cars and such and the 2nd youngest is 6 and likes girly bits but is tired of dolls etc.. So i'm kinda stumped.

    Have peen perusing through the Woolworths big book and Argos book too but not coming up with much.

    If anyone has any ideas i have a budget of £30-£40 for each of them. Please feel free to post or PM me :mrgreen:

    (my boys are not too much of problem they just want everything in the world :roll: :lol:)

    Chloe wants a PSP :shock: and that walking barbie thing I dunno it dances or something...I used to spend about £500 on her and same on hubby but not this year,I am doing £150-200 chloe and £50 on him....

    My mum I am doing a hamper and putting stuff like candle in a jar (that smells luch),tights,lipsticks,leather gloves an' stuff like that,it is cheaper in the sense that you can buy bits when you have dosh.

    All neices and nephews get a tenner in a card as they have everything anyway :cry: and i get fed-up with spending £30 (what I used to) and seeing it chucked to one side never to be played with...

    I JUST USUALLY BUY MY DH CLOTHES AND DVDS. THEN I TELL HIM HE CAN GO BUY A CAR PART Or A POWER TOOL OF SOME SORT. FOR MY FOLKS I JUST GET THEM A GIFT CERT TO A HOME IMPROVEMENT STORE BECAUSE THEY ARE BUILDING A HOUSE. AND FOR MY SISTER, I ASK WHAT SHE NEEDS AND THEN I GET IT FOR HER. :roll: KIND OF LAME. SPEND MOST MY MONEY ON MY DOG :twisted:

    I am good with money and save all year,so I spend £500 on hubby,I work hard (with exception of being pregnant,lol) and earn good money so I dont see why not but if i only had a fiver then that would be fine with him too.


    ARCNEGIRL, I would rather have a fiver spent on me on something I liked than £1k of crap,that is fine,so dont feel bad.
