Still laughing at the Macs - it reminds me of the time my Mum asked for a jigsaw. I sent OH shopping for it and he came back with a 1000 piece jigsaw of a pretty village scene. Wrong! She wanted the actual electrical saw. I am so specific with my lists that my MIL has stopped asking (with disastrous results). I can't wait for Christmas!

Haha! This was cute, and actually very good tips! Now what clever bod is going to design a web app for photo wishlists that friends and family can subscribe to...? Something like Wishbook instead of facebook...

I once had a long conversation with a friend about an impressive new Apple Mac another friend had bought. It wasn't until the end of the conversation that she asked why someone would want to spend so much money on a coat!

Rosie Scribble

Ooh, Michelle. Do you know anyone who could design that web app? You could make a fortune!

Lol! Great post! I have always been one for wanting 'nice' surprises, but it seems that I can only really rely on very close friends / family for this. Although I was VERY specific one year with MIL - had seen a HUGE selection of suede-like gloves in Primark in every colour of the rainbow - had a brown pair (practical) and fancied a bright green or purple pair (fun!). Gave the exact details but I think MIL felt sorry for me asking for something from that AWFUL(!) shop and I ended up with a brown pair (which part of 'I've already got a brown pair' did you not understand?!) of leather gloves from M&S. I took them back and treated myself! ;)

MMMM. I say the safest thing to but people is gift vouchers of some sort.

Brilliant! I am changing my 'jumper' request as I write!

Rosie Scribble

Very wise!
