My DH hasn't got a clue what to get me for Christmas...but that's the problem too...I don't know what I want either...

In the past he has bought me something for the house, which I actually hate, I told him I want something just for me...but as he can never figure out what to get me, I usually just buy something for myself...

But I have no idea what to get myself this time...

Has anyone got any ideas?

No jewellery as I'm allergic. No chocolates or sweet stuff, as I'm a Diabetic. No massages, or anything like that as we don't have anything like that here. We live in a small country town, so mostly I buy stuff online.

I'd love anything English, I have a Bobby Teddy Bear, a Sherlock Holmes Teddy Bear, and Paddington Bear Beefeater.

So with this information can you think of anything?

Do you drink tea? Peter's have really cute Paddington tea pots and mugs at the moment. I may have bought some for myself...

Do you like gadgets?
What about an e-book reader or an iPad mini?

Are there any shower gels or moisturisers that you like? Crabtree and Evelyn have a nice range of stuff. I'm a big fan of their handcreams especially. I get lots of stuff from Lush too, but their fragrances are a lot more "full on"
How about a magazine subscription? The times I've been given that it's like a little present in my mailbox every month original.gif

I don't mind expanding the teddy collection original.gif

Yes I drink tea, but not not tea leaves, plus I can't drink too much at one time (I have gastric paresis, which doesn't allow much to go down).

I'm not into bath gels, creams and scented things, most make me break out in hives sad.gif

I never thought of a magazine subscription original.gif

I read, sew, knit, embroider, and surf the net on my iPad.

I love gadgets, but I already have a Kobo and iPad.

Would you like a nice english leather satchel?

I recently discovered The Cambridge Satchel Company.  ASOS sell them and with express delivery (use the code - AUSEXPRESS) you will have it within the week.

For a background story - (Yes, sorry it is the Daily Mail)  wink.gif  

I'm getting a purple one for Christmas from DH. original.gif  Takes me back to my school days - except that one was plain brown.

You could have a look at the Cath Kidston website. While a lot is homewares, there's also bags, accessories and I think I sewing/craft section. Not sure how long shipping to australia takes though

ASOS don't have the whole range but for sake of expediency if you can find one through them then you would have it by Christmas.

I'm with you - I'm 7 months pregnant so ALL I can think about is baby stuff - and apparently a car seat is not a suitable gift for me.
Can't get clothes because who knows what shape I will be after having the baby.
Not really much point getting 'toys' because I'm not likely to have a whole lot of free time.
Already got a beautiful necklace for my birthday so more jewellery seems a bit OTT.

Hopefully someone suggest something awesome for you and I can copy it?

But for you - maybe a weekend away - eg either mystery flight or DH organises a chalet or hotel room?
