I'm talking token presents, what are you getting? We spend all of our money on the kids and family so never buy anything huge for each other. Well I don't but sometimes H goes a bit over board even though we have said we won't but that's another story.
We are getting each other token presents that go under the tree for the kids to hand out to us after they have opened theirs.
H is so hard to buy for so ideas please.

I give H money in Jan, but just buy him smellies really to open. Not much hell am I?

I've bought H the ministry 80s electric album and the ministry 90s album plus Keith lemon dvd and aftershave. Then K has bought him warrior and Tyranasaur dvds
Kellfi we have joint accounts so I can't really give him money.
Missus S, I could get him a mug but got him one last year, he's picky about t-shirts, doesn't listen to CD's, doesn't wear PJ's or slippers. I could look at a box set of Band of Brothers, he had them but can't find them or who he lent them too.

I could get him some aftershave although he does have quite a bit already and told my mam not to get him any this year.
Mine has a shower gel, personnalised map, mini hip flask, DVDs and CDs.

Calendar for the station? Molton brown smellies ?

Bb what is a personalised map? A map of what?
He doesn't use a calendar just a diary and only uses Nivea face creams etc.
I'm getting my H some jeans and a coat. Then just some little things like toblerone etc!

SW there's some cracking little stocking fillers on ere! My personal fave is the rainbow coloured willy warmer

H has got cufflinks from the kids and from me in his stocking, 30 packs of chewing gum, drumstick lollies, a gillette travel set and socks!

We are the same only tend to buy token gifts. This year I've got him a hand mixer (our old one broke the other week) will probably get a game for Wii and a few little bits.

All my poor H has so far is an iPhone case that's also a wallet. We bought an iPad as a joint gift to each other already.

SW. It's a normal os map but features the address of your choice. You order them from the OS website and cost about £17, the map came with 24 hours too but be warned if you do order one get to the post before your H.
MrB's is set on our address; which also means its a perfect map of the whole of Hull, he's been looking for one for aggeess.

Thanks for the ideas ladies.

I have bought stuff for the kids to give him - socks, 2 x toy story themed pajama bottoms (Matalan), a superman apron, a fancy colander (something he will actually appreciate although it sounds odd) and 2 pairs of joggies.

My h has got an away day with the football. Iv just gone to the local American shop and got him £20 worth of sweets basically. Iv got fudge sundae pop tarts, nerds, milk duds, reeces cups, tootsie rolls, twinkies, Hershey bars, Cheetos and jolly ranchers. Be will be absolutely thrilled with that as he is a big kid and loves sweets

H isn't getting much this year as I bought him Grand Prix tickets for his birthday and that cost much more than we ever spend for birthdays (unless it's a big one!) He has a little hamper-
Best Daddy plaque
Photo of E for his office
Photo Calendar of E for his office
Homemade Snowman Cookies
That actually looks a lot but I've not spent very much at all.
