As I said before the youngest might get something, for missus or partner maybe vouchers, for doing dishes, cleaning house etc. could work :)

A lot of adults realistically now have pretty much anything they need, and if they really wanted it they'd have ordered it.


It's insanely hard to buy something that's not,

1.) Tat
2.) Going to actually get used


I just stick to getting a nice card, last 3 years I've done a Christmas CD (yes CD in 2022)

If you've no idea what to get a significant other and you've no kids, just arrange a day to go to one of those enormous shopping centres like bicester, trafford, meadowhall etc and both get drunk and make sure she/he picks something out  ;D

Looks like toy building blocks" :) One could possibly use them for building racks for computot stuff ?
They are pretty solid and last years. Only the plastic connectors get messed up and fall apart from lots of reconnections and chewing by kids. New versions of this stuff is super expensive for what it is.

Big ass plastic you connect a bit like lego/meccano on a basic level for the little ones.

bought a little book called "50 things I love about you"

it's just 50 blank pages you write stuff in

"I love it when you XYZ"  etc. etc.

with my handwriting it'll take me forever to fill it in and have it readable :-o



I think she'll really like that :-)

I'm well past the stage of doing slushy stuff with the missus and she's not really into that anyway, I struggle just with getting her films, etc that I know she'd like.

If she's already on the ball with sentimental gifts, what about something you can both do for the memories, like would she be into something like a spa day or that type of experience? Maybe a posh afternoon tea for two or something romantic like that that you can both do together? Maybe book a holiday for you both somewhere like a romantic weekend city break over Christmas/New Year?

we went to ramside hall for a spa type thing a while back, it was a bit or a let down, might try another place... we're going to go to Iceland early next year, haven't booked it yet, waiting to find out when her exams are


I'm trying to go a bit above and beyond... she's awesome, I need to put some extra effort in


a couple of weeks ago she was coming over late on, I'd been re-concreting the factory floor and stuff like that for 2 weeks, doing crazy hours, I was knackered and my house was a mess... pile of dirty washing, pile of dishes in the sink,etc. etc.  I got away from work early so I could tiry up before she came over.... she came around extra early (has a key), did all my dishes, dirty washing, cleaned my house top to bottom, fresh sheets on the bed and baked me a cake!

Put a ring on it!
