    doesn't really work if your mum's name isn't the name as a soap though..
    It still works honestly. It's still lovely fruity soap. Miranda is possibly their best soap in my opinion- I bought a similar one from Lush this year. The Godmother is also a favourite of mine.

    You don't have to have a cat called Felix to buy Felix cat food.

    I put money together with my brother and got our dad The Expendables and Iron Man 2 on dvd and also a new Jeremy Clarkson dvd because he loves those, a new Clarkson book, a Ministry of Sound 2011 Anthems cd and some chocolate. And socks. Because obviously christmas needs socks.

    Slipper boots, a necklace and earring set, a couple of cds and some chocolate. Green & Blacks, because it's her favourite.

    Edit: for my mum. Because I just noticed that the christmas presents for mum and dad threads have been merged, and I posted about 5 minutes ago on the other thread. :p:

    I haven't got everyone's presents yet cause I'm getting paid tomorrow but I work in a store and know what they're all getting! Well the basics anyway... :ninja:

    Mum- Handbag
    Dad- A jumper
    Brother- Inbetweeners box set.

    I'll probably add chocolates/ alcohol according to how generous I am feeling. Yes I do realise I'm actually going to die tomorrow! :teehee:

    I'm currently living in China so I sent her a cheap and cheerful head massager off Amazon (she loves her head being massaged) and when I visit home mid January I'll be giving her a Chinese silk scarf and Stephen Fry's first autobiography as her proper present.
    Yikes, please tell me it wasn't one of these style ones? http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/asse...616679640P.JPG

    Well... similar, slightly less cheap looking but she loves them and doesn't have one so why not? It's only a novelty gift until I can give her a nice one in person

    1st edition 1984 book by George Orwell. It cost me $400 and it had to be bought 6 months ago while my uncle was in New York.

    It's going to be her christmas and birthday present (Her birthday is New Years eve).

    She knows she's getting two presents in one and she will get some flowers and a meal on her actual birthday. She'll get to open it on christmas day in front of her family.

    Not sure how much she'll like it but from the yelp/scream that occured between her mother and sister when I told them I'm assuming it will go well
    Adding everyone else's present seeing as the title changed and also because I'm bored and nobody in my house has woken up yet

    Me and my dad went in on a present for my mum. A spa weekend away that's actually 3 days. Also added a handmade voucher that basically says me and my dad will do the housework that weekend :P corny I know.

    My brother and I usually get each other something funny but this year he asked me in november to get him a book for uni because he was struggling financially so I did. He's got me what I'm assuming is that massive bottle of Jack Daniels and something else.

    Got my dad loads of random Blu-Ray films because he just got a player and when he works nights he likes to watch them during the day.

    Got my girlfriends mum and sister sanctuary spa stuff and yes I bought a 3rd in the 3 for 2 offer which I will be using for myself Oh and I got her dad a golf ball with the number 2 on it seeing as both times we played he lost

    Found out at midnight that one of my girlfriends presents to me was a gorgeous lingerie set that she will wear whenever I request over the next year see girls who said getting your boyfriend a present was hard ? I'm pretty sure she has also got me a painting judging by the shape of the present. She doesn't like prints so I'm guessing it's expensive I'd feel bad if her daddy didn't pay for everything.

    The only reason I asked is that those style head massagers are often sold under names like "Orgasmatron" and allegedly give you a sensation akin to having an orgasm. Just feels a little creepy to give a parent a present that does that xD

    Ha! If only they were akin to having an orgasm. Besides it's not as if I'm sending her a rampant rabbit is it? This one is quite humbly named "head massager", I think I'm safe :P
