you could make your own personalised hampers hun? in argos 3pk seagrass baskets 9.99, and fill each one with little things you know people will like whenever youve got a spare couple of pounds. like my nan in law loves her nails, so we bought a range of polishes, and care products, as well as a girly film and chocs so she could have herself a pampering day. cigarettes if they smoke, a favourite small bottle of pefume/aftershave, whatever they like.
you can also carry on with your photo idea, like mugs, keyrings etc with your lo on to put into said hampers xxx

it works for birthdays or other special occasions too, our neighbours sister loved the one we gave her brother for his last birthday so much she now does them for her oh Laughing and it makes it so much easier to buy presents gradually, instead of worrying about one bigger present per person when xmas is staring you in the face when things are tight Very Happy xxx

So so pleased, had a fab shopping day today!
Bought the mini kitchen for 11.50, a half price dolly at 6. But my bargain of the day - the dressing gown I wanted for missy in Boots was 12. Then I remembered OH had a 10 voucher I had in the changing bag, and in the boots catalogue you get 10% off the new baby range. So I bought it for 80p!! Very Happy Laughing

And I love love love that idea, lalena! I was worried about what to get my mum and sis, but now, I think you've just solved that! Very Happy

Did ask a few posts back but no-one's replied, what're you getting OH's/family, or have you mainly thought of kiddies so far?

oh wow stacey, what a bargain! Very Happy god, i havent a clue what to get my kids beyond clothes Embarassed i just KNOW the inlaws will buy plenty of toys, so will have to coordinate so no duplicates happen Laughing when it comes to my nephews im the boring sensible auntie, last year the elder ones all got liverpool fc breakfast sets, and this year bedding sets i think, seeing as theyre now in their own home and its something they need as well as something theyre into Smile
mil is always trickiest, but if its red youre onto a winner Laughing going to be a mini bottle of baileys and lindt chocs in there though Very Happy

I haven't thought of clothes at all, lalena, someone reminded me the other day that I could buy her some Laughing I have some mittens and now the dressing gown, but to be honest not sure I will buy any clothes, maybe I can tell others that and there'll be no duplicated pressies - though I can't see there being. I love what I've got Very Happy

Noooo idea what to get OH. Rolling Eyes

most men seem to like things that are electronic, fiddly and time consuming just to set up Laughing my fil is a prime example with his gadgets. cant work ANY of them out himself, always needs my oh or bil to sort them out, but he has to have them because theyre the latest thing and are cool Rolling Eyes the mans nearly 60, too old for his midlife crisis and too young to be losing his marbles, so dont know what his excuse is Laughing
what about a digital photo frame? pictures, short little clips can be played, and itll keep him out of your hair while you do xmas dinner, too busy putting images etc onto it to get under foot Laughing
