I find it hard buying for my hubby because he has most things he wants and the other things would require a mortgage :shock: :lol:

I don't think I've ever had a bad present and as for my best one...I'll have to wait til xmas to find out :)

Every year I send all my elderly relatives and friends Womens Institute
Food Parcels, they make up boxes of cakes, meat pies, tarts, jams and chutneys etc (all of which can be frozen) and the recipients love them. I always pay between £5-£15. The WI decorate the boxes with bows and stuff and they look really nice.

There is a WI near you so if you want to know the number get on the
WI Country Markets website. :)

That sounds well nice ..... mmmmm getting the munchies now.

I really do not go much on Christmas presents and nor do the rest of the family.
It is thought if we each buy our own present it is more satisfactory.

However that does not include the children of course.

I think the best present I receive is the Dairy Diary from my parents well my dad now.

We break up tomorrow, but we have had a week of festivities
my kids in the boarding house have just the best Christmas.

It starts on the 1st Dec. when all the balloons, tree, and Dorm decorations go up, then we go to the panto, we then have a B.H. revue on the stage at school, we then have a boarders Party/disco in the hall. This week we have another party in the house when Parents are invited for drinks, last night we had "scraps supper" when everything is eaten out of the freezers ie burgers, fishfingers,chicken etc. then we had choc,choc and more choc.
Then Father Christmas came and we opened up secret santa.
Tonight its the school carol service and packing!

I will be ready to say :lol: cheerio to them all tomorrow.

But I have had some fun!

Scraps supper sounds great fun especially with chocolate involved :P :P

Will (ho-unit) I do buy prezzies but the main family opted out a few years ago however we do normally buy some simple or silly item to exchange at the family get together after Christmas.


Christmas Cards yes I must get those going soon I have got loads already and am well behind this year.

I apologise the site does not have Christmas decorations this year but I will promise next year we will return to our usual seasonal festive look.
