Hi TSRians. I need some great gift ideas I can get for my family as I'm thinking of going to Manchester sometime this week and get the presents and hopefully come home when I'm home alone so I can hide them from everybody lol. I have a low budget (about £150) so I need to get nice things but for affordable prices.

My dad is into golf big time and he already has lots of golf stuff. I get him something every Christmas and birthday for him but I'm stumped of what to get him this year. He has loads of golf clubs and golf balls and tubes and bags etc. so I'm stumped of what to get him next. He's also into watches and he's a maths teacher so if you have any ideas for my dad, that will be greatly appreciated.

My sister is very arty and loves to hand-make things. She's a vegan so I can't get her any chocolates or cheese as she used to love cheese before she turned xD and she also loves vintage stuff. If you know of any vegan stuff or great hand-made/vintage ideas, I'd be happy to hear them.

My sister's boyfriend loves to write and is into Norse mythology and is a heavy metal head. I've already got him a box of orange Matchmakers as he doesn't like the mint kind as he believes mint flavoured confectionary should only be for brushing your teeth haha. If you have any ideas for him, I'm sure he'd be happy with me getting him something.

I want an idea for both my sister and her boyfriend as they've been together for almost two years now so I feel like getting them something nice. They love drinking any kind of whisky, wine, rum... Basically, they love their drinks hehe and they enjoy stuff from Joss Whedon and Hellboy. If you have any ideas about these, please speak up as I'll be the happiest guy in the world.

Tldr:
Dad: Golf, watches, maths stuff
Sister: Arty/hand-made things, vegan gifts, vintage stuff
Sister's boyfriend: Writer, norse gifts, non minty confectionary
Sister/sister's boyfriend: alcoholic drinks, Joss Whedon gifts, Hellboy

I hope I get some ideas as Christmas is drawing nigh. You give me any great ideas and I'll give you a thumbs up. Cheers and happy holidays

How about some vegan chocolate, or cheese? Hotel Chocolat have a vegan selection, which might be useful

There's a list here of Whedon related gifts - they seem to range from fairly cheap to insanely expensive, but you may be able to get a few ideas from there

There's also this, which seems to have more in the affordable range.

Sis's boyf - try a thor's hammer necklace. Maybe a bigger/thicker one like here: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=th...ammer+necklace

Or else this site is pretty good - http://www.pagandreams.co.uk/Pagan-J...y/default.aspx - also have other things.
Perhaps a copy of the poetic edda if he doesn't have one.
There are also lots of interesting books.

Sister - I've seen this on a local FB page, but this site does a similar thing - where they do a set of glitterised wine glass and bottle or just a glass -> http://glitzaratti.com/index.php?rou...ory&path=84_88 or there's a few others if you search glitter wine glass. I think they're pretty swell!

Vegan one - search vegan gifts? Or perhaps a subscription to greenpeace or a wild animal adoption or something..

Dad - How about a maths equation watch?! - where each number is instead a little equation. Lots of price ranges on these depending on quality etc.
E.g. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Thumbsup-Equation-Analogue-Display-EQUWAT/dp/B009OJWCZE


Hope any of this helps or gives you any ideas
