DP's side of the family are doing Secret Santa for the adults this year (hallelujah!!) and the agreed cost of individual presents is set at around $50.

We are allowed to write a wish list of three things that may help our Secret Santa in purchasing gifts. I've got a few things, trying to narrow it down xmas_tongue.gif

What would you you put on your list?

I haven't bought one single present yet. Actually, I lie, I have bought one thing for my dad. I have to buy all my kids presents, plus something for my mum and something else for my dad, my sisters and their partners, my nephews and nieces (2 of each), and my DP's, oh, and my secret santa's present too. And then possibly token gifts for extended family who I will see on Christmas Day, depending on how much will to live I have after all that. Living on the edge! Woo!

Yep, that would definitely have me sobbing laughing2.gif

I think though if you know exactly what you want and what shop carries it, that makes a difference.

Good luck whith your shop!
