Christmas Presents

Have to go into the city today after work to get my Christmas pressies sorted. The only person I have bought anything for is my little darling daughter ? she��ll love me whatever I give her. The adults? Not so easy to please.

It��s pretty difficult trying to get unique Christmas presents for anyone over here because they usually already have EVERYTHING already. Very annoying. In Nigeria it was so much easier buying presents for people as almost everything that was given was appreciated no matter how small. I was also a lot more creative back home so many of my presents were self made and different.

I have made a tentative list of stuff to buy and ranging from candle holders to a collection of specialists teas. Not very exciting ? so shoot me. I think one of my presents will be my long dreamed of iPod (thanks darling, however did you guess?). Any ideas on what I can get for my man?

I was having a similar discussion with my best friend the other day. She was at a loss for what to get for her husband. She always ends up getting him the same things: shirt; tie; cologne; or shoes (if she's feeling flush). I totally sympathise, because it can be equally hard for getting something for my Dad.

I think that ultimately, if the man in question has very specific interests, then it will always be easy. My brother, for instance, loves films and so I know that anything film-related is always a good bet.

Unfortunately, my husband isn't that straight forward and yes, over the years he has received the boring usuals - shirts, shoes, cologne. I went to the clinique counter yesterday and got him some products but somehow I feel that doesn't quite cut it - cost a bomb though!! I think I might pop back into the city centre and have another look.
Is giving him a book too naff? No, don't answer that!! :-)

Oh, don't get me started! I LOVE receiving books as gifts - one of my favourite types of gifts ever IF the person knows my taste.

Well, sorry to generalise but a lot of guys like gadgets, so that could be the road to go..
