Gift Ideas Thread

Post by Finnian » Sun Nov 30, 2014 1:38 pm

With Christmas coming up I thought a gift ideas thread would be appropriate.

Whether you want to ask SONM for gift ideas for your family, friends or a significant other or whether you want to give people a helping hand in that area, use this thread for the discussion of gift ideas .

I'm toying with the idea of getting my girlfriend this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ornami-Silver-L ... cr_pr_pb_t
I mean, it is so pretty and that isn't a bad price at all.

I have my mum and dad to buy for and the response I always get when I ask what they'd like is "just surprise me", tempted to surprise them with nothing as I literally can think of anything to get them this year, but I think nothing would be a touch harsh.

Try to get something that both you and the receiver like. That way you can bond more, if you want to. Otherwise money does the trick :D

Need to get gifts for parents tomorrow, along with something else for my brother (only got him a Stewart Lee DVD so far). No idea what to get for parents, such a hassle.

Already bought for a housemate with secret santa, and a friend who I am trading presents with, and those were easy/fun to buy for. Parents and brother not so much as I just have no idea.

Have no idea what to get yet. Need to get presents for my sisters, my brother-in-law, a future brother-in-law and his mother since she's probably going to be in attendance and she was the host last year so it'd be rude not to. And my niece and nephew. That'll be easy, though.

Well, if your parents are into music, game them a "Best of [Insert Decade]" album. That can work.
