What would you choose? this present may be bought for you by anyone, DH SO partner, friend, DD etc.They will never know, so feel free to be honest, but keep it within their real spending power( even though you may want a diamond necklace or a rolls.)DH alawys wants to buy me a surprise present for instance, so I never say what I really want.
This year I would like...... A dozen red half opened roses with ferny foliage
( not called roses for nothing!)

I would prefer a voucher for Amazon so that I could choose the Kindle books that I wanted. So many are so cheap that I would be in 7th heaven for £20.

A bracelet- diamonds preferably but just a sparkly one would do.

A big pile of cow manure for my allotment and garden! grin

Seriously I cannot think of anything except some M&S milk choc coated ginger in a tub (£5)and some Greek honey. Think I'm a bit of a pig.

A Renault Captur. I considered buying one but could not justify the expense, as my current car is fine.

A box of Crystallised fruits. DH bought me a box from a supplier in Israel a few years ago, they were scrumptious unfortunately the firm are no longer in business. The Orange ones were my favourite.

A Cortland 444 floating fly line, and a very large bag of Twiglets!

I would like to win the lottery......hmm

jinglbellsfrocks Mon 23-Nov-15 13:07:01

I can't think of a single thing I want. Feel sorry for my kids really, having to think of something. hmm

One of those lovely old sewing boxes sometimes seen on the Antiques Roadshow, with all the contents and perhaps a hidden love letter or two tucked away inside some half finished embroidery.

Hmmmn, some of you are more easily pleased than others! grin The lottery indeed, impossible to wrap it up.

Some real Turkish Delight, bought from a little shop down a side street in Istanbul. A selection of flavours, but especially hazelnut. I bought some there while on holiday and no other Turkish Delight comes anywhere close for flavour and texture.
It's delicious.

I would love to have the lost diamond replaced in my engagement ring.

ninathenana Mon 23-Nov-15 17:48:17

A grey 100% cotton towelling bathrobe, size s/m, available to order from Dunelm!

Maranta Mon 23-Nov-15 18:05:55

A new car, preferably small and powerful and a replacement garage to put it in. My present one is falling to bits - garage that is.

tinaf1 Mon 23-Nov-15 18:26:12

An afternoon tea voucher in a posh London hotel & then a fitbit

jinglbellsfrocks Mon 23-Nov-15 18:44:10

I used to think a new bike would be nice. But then I tried DD's modern bike, and I fell off. I will stick to my 40-odd year old Raleigh.

nannycake Mon 23-Nov-15 19:49:18

A husband or partner who I could share the good things in life with.

nannycake Mon 23-Nov-15 19:56:05

Ooops I meant to choose a present. I'd like a diamond ring.

baubles Mon 23-Nov-15 21:16:31

A fair isle style 100% cashmere sweater from pure please. (Should DH happen to spot this).

P.S. It's the grey one. smile

Just musing here.... But, for the more reasonable gifts wanted on here, perhaps we should come out and say to our nearest and dearest, that this is what we really want?
