    We all know it's better to give than receive :yum: so with Christmas rolling around what are your plans to give people in this festive season? :present: maybe you have already brought it or planning to or maybe you are hand making a festive gift, perhaps you are even donating to charity!

    Post in this thread what you are giving people for Christmas

    Mum - my friend is an awesome artist so she's drawn a picture of our late cat and I'll put it in a nice frame for her
    Dad - he actually specifically told me what he wants, ha. It's a small glass jar with his name on it so he can put his teabags in it at work
    Boyfriend - this Alphabet of Manliness book he's wanted for ages
    Nan - a gift card for Waterstones
    Boyfriend's parents / siblings - some nice chocolates from Lindt or Hotel Chocolat seeing as they love English chocolates
    Secret Santa person - probably some fluffy socks, a scented candle and some chocolate depending on what price limit we set
    Brother - money probably, or a t shirt

    I am so bad at thinking of gifts to give to people. I may just give them a high five.

    No clue. I'm stressing out over it already.

    My friend's birthday is also in December and trying to come up with two separate gifts for the girl who has everything is so challenging.

    Ha, he's so hard to buy for. The tshirts I get him though are personalised and very much suited for him, so there's a bit of love!

    I haven't really thought about it but got some ideas :yep: going to some Christmas markets with college so hopefully there will be something I can buy there.

    Mum - brooch, will probably get a book or bookset, and maybe a digital photo frame or personalised gift from Photobox.

    Dad (impossible to buy for as I get the impression he dislikes it if I spend money on him) so he will get- his usual packet of dark chocolate Digestive biscuits (he sounded enthusiastic when I asked), and a Toblerone.

    Nan - Christmas hamper.

    Wow, that does sound stressful. I always have the best intention for the gifts to buy people but it never quite works out how it does in my head!!

    Would it be a possibility to get your friend one gift for her birthday AND Christmas? You could spend a bit more money but get her something really good like an experience or something?

    Let me know if I can help yopu come up with anything
