A device that looks like a tablet but actually enables me to time-travel.

Failing that, I don't mind if it is stuffed with money.

A photograph of my grandma and grandad when they were young, that I asked for when they died in the 1970s and my auntie 'forgot' to give me.

I don't bear a grudge, you understand wink. But I still want it!

Next week's lottery numbers.

Judthepud2 Wed 17-Jun-15 21:18:25

Some nice new novels to read please!

A dozen bottles of wine I could never afford, with vintage champagne x2,Barolo x2 and other vintages I don't even know about. Actually 2 could be finest malts, I'm not too fussy.

A lifetime supply of book tokens

A garden design plan with a promise of workmen to implement it.

I want my parcel to have one of those clocks that you can turn back. About 30 years would be nice.
Alternatively a 100% guaranteed, foolproof, automatic slimming machine - just dial in the weight you want to be, stand on it, et voila! (I would have to use it somewhere private, though, because my trousers would fall down grin)

chloe1984 Wed 17-Jun-15 15:22:54

I would like my parcel to contain some luxury bath products and an outrageously scented candle please .

I've got an inflatable friend....... I'll post him to you biker. (Can't seem to remember how I acquired him) hmm

hildajenniJ Wed 17-Jun-15 13:54:43

The deeds, key etc for that gorgeous six bedroom, three bathroom house with the two bedroom, two bathroom cottage in the grounds that we have acquired for all the family to move into.

A round-the-world air ticket, with stop-overs in lovely hotels in exotic locations. And a new passport, - mine has almost expired, - and details of all the amazing excursions planned.

The 12x12 was just packaging, inside all that bubble wrap was the most beautiful diamond necklace with matching earrings.grin

shysal Wed 17-Jun-15 11:28:33

A photo of the close family, not too formal.

bikergran Wed 17-Jun-15 10:37:43

downtoearth Wed 17-Jun-15 10:22:03

Bellanonna Wed 17-Jun-15 10:16:23

Aladdin's lamp please. And I don't care if it comes in the afternoon

kittylester Wed 17-Jun-15 09:46:32

If I can't have what Brenda's having, I'd love a really luscious, gooey, raspberry and cream cake containing no gluten!

I might come back with a better idea later!

Brendawymms Wed 17-Jun-15 09:41:37

A stack of £50 notes please. All new in their bands in neat piles.

ninathenana Wed 17-Jun-15 09:41:15

Nor me Mishap

I'd love something gorgeous that I'd bought from an antiques auction on line.

Mishap Wed 17-Jun-15 09:36:25

Teetime Wed 17-Jun-15 09:24:23
