- It's Christmas again… presents for our wives
something personalised always goes a LONG way. Even if it’s something cheap it shows that you’ve thought about her and tried (& perhaps failed) last year I got egg cups for the all the family with our names on, the year previous to that I got her a leather bookmark with a little ditty on that I wrote and then previous to that some socks with her name & ‘mother of the year’ on – it’s getting harder & harder to come with stuff but all this junk I got off Ebay! Of course I get her other big stuff as well, my mrs is dead easy to buy coz she loves books.Posted 5 years agoKona TCSubscriber
A few years back and in discussion with the children, dropped some cash on some spa treatments/products nicely wrapped, boxed, with a gift card. Smug as bug
Then Christmas Day, still feeling smug, Mrs TC opened the gift and said “this is not an i-pod”, I looked at her, she looked at me, I looked at the children at which point my eldest said its what you wanted. No its not, I wanted and i-pod!
Anyway long storey short I was stood outside a shop on Boxing Day
Since then, I’m going to buy your Christmas present next weekend, what do you want?Posted 5 years agoweeksySubscriber

32Gb iPad. Bought last night for her.
I guess maybe people are just a lot better off than me, but £500 for an xmas present seems like a lot. Or is it one of those presents that’s actually for you?
It started out as a random convo a few days earlier… I then went to buy a Nexus7 but got the impression it was too small (screen size) so ended up picking up a bargain iPad instead. We’d actually agreed not to spend much on eachtoehr… but i’m a big softie in all honesty.Posted 5 years agoPz_SteveSubscriber
Last year I bought Mrs Pz a race entry to a triathlon. Not that she’d ever shown any interest in one, but as she was just getting into running it seemed like a good idea. Certainly got an interesting reaction!
If nothing else it was a good excuse for a weeknd away, and we can both now say that we’ve ticked that one off the list!Posted 5 years ago
