I had asked for anything Disney for Christmas and Zac Efron calender...means when i'm in the kitchen i have something tasty to look at :lmao:

I don't have a better half so my parents and my friends always get me some gifts.

What kind of things are you into?

I need some plain earrings - I can only get away with my Mickey Mouse ones so often.

I want the Strictly Come Dancing Tour video and the new Harry Potter Video.

Oh god i have a list as long as your arm...

Liposuction
Uggs
Pandora Charms
Emma Arkell Rose and Ginger bath oil/Lavender and Chamomile bath oil
Per Una dressing gown
Yankee candles
Disney slippers

The list goes on and on :rotfl2: I won't get most of it though, especially the liposuction. It goes at the top of my list every year.

I take a different approach in our house, it's not the best but I tend to buy my own pressie from dh and wrap it up otherwise I'd end up with a gift for the house !! He always asks what I would like but he seems to struggle with the listening bit so I've given up asking him, hence why I like the dis exchanges ... it's lovely to get a surprise gift which I like :goodvibes

I love getting lots of Disney bits and bobs, so hubby usually gets me a bag of stuff when we're away in the Summer for Christmas, like t-shirts, cheap jewellery, little figures. He's also bought me some sunglasses and some Minnie Mouse P.J's

So far I've bought hubby a couple of t-shirts from WDW, the new England Rugby top, Chris Evans biography and some choccie :santa:

I forgot to mention what I'm getting dh ! He's getting the usual bits and pieces ... aftershave, skin care stuff, dvd's, cd's, a couple of new things to wear but the gift I'm hoping he's going to love the most is a memory stick for his pc which looks like Darth Vader, I was torn between that one and C3P0 but I think he'll love it :)

I would like a new ipod nano (my "classic" is too big for the gym), Hunter wellie boots, a Cath Kidston bag for the gym, some vouchers for clothes and make-up, Take That Circus DVD, Pandora charms and a few bits and bobs. It's my birthday in December so my family really have to be clever to come up with stuff all at once, I do know how hard it is for them.
DH is usually very good to me as he panic buys luxury goods;)
Having said that, this year I have purchased my ipod from him (it arrived today) and it has been put away, he will get me a few small gifts to open from the girls. My Mum has bought my wellie boots for me already so I'm happy with whatever I get now. We are going to DLRP for my birthday weekend so I consider that part of my pressie and we are taking my Mum as our pressie to her.

DH wants a super hi-tech lightweight backpack as we take no buggy on days out now he ends up carrying the bag:rotfl2: Wi-fi IP cameras (what for, I do not know:rotfl:) and a new point and shoot camera.

We buy presents from the kids for each other, but we don't bother other than that. We've asked for 'family' gifts from the inlaws - an in-car dvd from one and a family pass to Warwick Castle from the other. The girls get more than enough at Christmas.;)

Great thread. :thumbsup2

I am really stumped at what to get hubby this year :confused3 he just doesn't want anything! :headache: Unlike me....:rotfl2: So far he has got some of the little green alien pants :lmao: (see bargains thread for details) and Dan Browns new book. I hope to get some inspiration from here....

I've kept my list short on purpose in the hope of getting the first thing!!!! ;) :rotfl2:

A trip to WDW (well I can live in hope :rolleyes1)
Some Precious Moments ornaments
Snow White dvd (which I know he has got for me ;) )

We've talked about saving a bit of money to put towards our next holiday if there is nothing much we want, so we may well do that.

I think if I had a bigger family this would be the case, as it's only Me and my Mum left on my side DH likes to make a fuss, otherwise Christmas is just about his family, and I must admit we don't buy each other much, if anything, all year round. DH hardly buys himself anything at all and some years we go without if we want new laptops etc. Otherwise it can get out of hand. We do buy for our parents but we all agreed with his brothers and their partners a few years ago that we only buy for the children ::yes::

It's all down to Richard really. As I've always taken care of getting the gifts for Sophie, Matty and Samuel, his way of being involved in Christmas is to go off on secretive shopping missions... He dropped the bombshell in August that he already had 7 items on his list - which is a shame as, apart for some gorgeous cufflinks, I haven't really thought about him too much!!! :eek: :lmao: :rolleyes:

I want a pug too, we went to a patients house one night & she had a 17 week old pug. My crewmate & I were more interested in the dog then the patient:rotfl2:

Did you see in the paper a few weeks back about the worlds saddest dog & it was a pug in his little jumper.

It's a memory stick if that's the same thing :confused3 got to admit I'm not very techie when it comes to that sort of stuff. Anyhow I got it from play.com .. they do a 2gb, 4gb or 8gb version along with other star wars characters .. Leia, Luke, C3P0 etc. Type star wars mimobot into the search tab on play and it brings them all up. Although they have other varieties too like Hello kitty, etc :)

This is top of my list too!
I have a few "top of list" pressies though so he gets a chance to choose, I am also a December birthday so I may be lucky and get a couple of big things .

I also want an iPhone, an external CD drive / burner for my netbook, and I will ask for some money so that I can buy some nice stuff from WDW in January.
