...what would you buy?
My boss has just asked me to think of something that I wouldn't buy myself, as Santa has told her to get me something - I'm a bit taken aback at the moment, and don't have a clue, although not clothes or jewellery.
So what can I suggest? I'd have gone for a Kindle if I didn't already own one, and I don't really want any sort of tablet since I spend way too much time on the internet as it is. I don't need or really use a camera either.

Weren't you looking for a new handbag recently?
10/12/2012 at 12:26
I was, but I decided on one and that's already on my Christmas list, and not that expensive.

Tickets to a spa. I need a bit of pampering.

It would probably help pay for my Elemis obsession
10/12/2012 at 12:38
wow, generous boss!
probably a nice/posh scarf (liberty has a lovely selection), properly nice sunglasses (i always get cheapie ones), hair cut vouchers, massive bottle of my favourite perfume (or one i couldn't afford myself), spa/facial vouchers, a luxurious throw to go on our sofa/bed.
i wish my boss would spend £100 on me!

I'd buy a coach/train ticket to Bluewater, meet all the Kent Hitchers at Pizza Express and shop at Bluewater!

This is going to sound really sad but I'd go for a complete plate set with matching coffee cups that I've seen in M&S or a new DVD player as ours is in its way out

decent ipod speaker? blu ray player? nice vase?

Some nice ideas, but unfortunately not something that I'd want myself.
She's actually suggested shoes as she knows I love some of the irregular choice ones, but which would I choose!!
10/12/2012 at 15:37
ooooh yes shoes, a GREAT suggestion!
i'd get these baseball type boots, or these leopard print flats, these teal flowered shoes of gorgeousness, or these crazy creations. i'm sure the last pair would NEVER get worn, but my, HOW pretty?!?

A lush spa voucher and the petrol to Leeds. Maybe using the change for a cocktail in Harvey Nicks.

Some Jo Malone stuff. A small perfume and small body lotion, I think you could just about get that for £100. Or a couple of Benefit sets.

bw - that last pair certainly are crazy! These are some of the ones I quite like, although not sure whether I'd wear any of them
Oh, I just don't know, I don't really want smellies as I've asked for some for Christmas and don't want too many, I don't need makeup and don't like spending too much on it - this is probably why my parents find it so difficult to buy me presents

I was, by my dad for my birthday, I got a gorgeous winter coat x

A hot stone massage at a fabulous spa
10/12/2012 at 18:36
I like the idea of a coat TNP, but it would take me ages to find one and I have a feeling she wants me to decide in the next couple of days so she can order it for me - being away tonight and not home until late tomorrow after a 3+ hour drive doesn't help either!

I love the second irregular choice shoes. I love irregular choice shoes - though some are a bit out there for me to buy and wear.My w edding shoes were irregular choice. Usually I just can't justify spending that much so they would be top of my list if I had a spare £100.Other things Iwould treat myself to are a facial or new underwear.

Ugg boots, a handbag or purse, a blanket from Indigo & Rose. GHD's?
