    I would love an I tunes card. The look on my face would have been one of gratefulness. I could buy that new 1D album !

    How do you know your presents to SIL are good? Beauty could be in the eye of the beholder.. ?...

    Dh and I don't give each other xmas pressies anymore.
    The other day I was at aldi and they had havainas thongs on special so I bought him a pair and wrapped it up for fun. This might be counted as a crap pressie lol 😆

    I love a joke pressie! Hubby and I are starting a tradition of getting one joke present for a member of the family,.. I want my kids to be able to genuinely laugh if they get a carrot wrapped in Christmas paper not scowl or put on a fake smile!

    Because she is very expressive and talked about them at other times/put them up on display. DF gets all the credit for the "awesome present" and he gets great gifts off them too. This year we bought her a charm for her Pandora bracelet which was more expensive than we would usually spend but we know what she likes and I'd rather spend the time thinking about it and get a present to suit her than something cheap.

    I'm sure my other SIL's could say we've given them some crap gifts over the years but not this one.

    It involves some thought. My MIL usually gives cash and this year put $$ into our account. A decent amount. Usually I whinge about the lack of thought however with $$ being tight before going back to work I loved the $$ this year. I was able to get my DS1 the one toy he has been crazy about.

    It's amazing how different strokes for different folks. I would LOVE a big W gift card. I am going back to work soon and need to buy clothes. Well actually target gift card would be better but BIG W would do!

    I would love this too! It can be really difficult buying adults gifts as most already have/buy what they want or need.
