    OK, only 8 weeks to go, lets get some ideas for Xmas presents, since my mind has gone blank, I need some ideas on what to buy for the other half and the little one(6 year old).

    Years and years and years ago when me and the missus first went joint xmas shopping together I walked into Argos and asked for £200 worth of £10 gift vouchers. My missus said I needed to put more thought into buying presents and she has done all the xmas shopping ever since:yes:

    That's one of those fecking charm bracelets isn't it? I bought one for my woman's 21st. What a rip off - the thing broke in like 5 mins :(

    Yes Jo, that's the way forward!!

    Ahh, that's the best part of the plan. She buys what she wants. wraps it and all I have to do is write out a label and give it to her :thumbsup:

    Good Luck Nath'!!! (hope all goes to plan)

    Jo, we cutting down bigtime as well this year mate, kids dont come cheap (as i now know)

    To be honest, the little one is too little to 'want' anything in particular, so the empty carboard box with lots of wrapping paper round it will work a treat ;)

    And the same for the missus too.

    Im with you on the pandora bracelets mate, i got one for my missus for her birthday, now all she wants is charms for it which cost an arm and a leg, especially if you go for any gold ones (which break up the colour apparantly).

    I am lucky, my wife has no desire to have a pandora bracelet, yay! However, she does want a digital SLR, DOH!!

    Would your lady like a pampering weekend away JoJo? A holiday? I have considered booking a secret holiday to austria or somewhere for christmas, but might be a pain getting the little one a passport. Suppose we could go without her, but i'd feel bad.

    Mate, when they hit 6 years old, talks of PS3 and new laptop is not unheard of. :blink:
    She will be too busy keeping the little one entertained this year aye.

    The problem is...our wives/other half's etc all think the same thing. My wife just cannot comprehend how i'd pay £300 for a remap on the car, lol.

    Joe if it was me I'd want either a turbo or supercharger! Not to much to ask for haa haa. Deffo not want a Pandora Bracelet! But like most, we are also cutting back, just treat the kids and maybe a couple of Wii games to play when we are having a few lagers or bottles of red!

    Whats your wife into? Does she like theatre/shows? or is she a clothing/shoe collector? Or would a simple but sexy piece of jewellery or a nice watch suit her more?

    We need to know more of what shes into! And dont say you lol!

    jojo why did you have to remind us all of this! were all happy just thinking about what to spend on our cars!

    as for the pandora bracelets, my mrs stands at about £1500 worth so far, its painfull buying things for it, but seems to shut her up, she's obsessed with them. this year (this is really really gay!) im thinking of getting the gold heart charm and an 'I' and a 'U'. as this is one way of delaying 'The question'.

    previous gifts to my mrs have been, pandora bracelet(makes them wet), armani watch(damp), holiday(she wont shut up about another one), perfume(women have to have them all so its always a winner), phone(later got pick pocketed). these all went down well, obv it depends on the type of women and her taste. mine as you can tell likes expensive S**T!

    the spa idea is brilliant, they'l be made up AND they f**k off! (borat) GREAT SUCCESS

    OK, I don't know what these Pandora bracelets are, and judging by some of the replies, I don't think I should, and neither should she lol. Missus had a thing for collecting Swarovski crystals a fair few years back, and I think she managed to get some limited edition ones too, but since junior arrived, her interest in them dwindled, saving me a packet in the process!
