Anyone else get fed up wandering round shops looking for the perfect gift for the woman who has everything?

My wife has always bought me and the kids Advent calenders.A few years ago she complained we didnt get her one, so I had an idea.

I got 25 boxes, and bought 25 gifts. These range from chocolate, to shampoo, shower gel, then a few more expensive bits like earrings, perfume etc.

Wrap each item n a box and pile them up so she can open one a day through December. Works a treat - she gets a present a day and appreciates you have made an effort - which you have.

Its an all round winner.

Somewhere where the weather isn't killing me
The entire series of Hustle for the mother, May, Hammond and Clarkson's new books for Dad, can't say what I'm getting my brother as there's a possibility he'll read this.

And if he does, Brisingr and/or Necropolis'll do me. Brisingr's easy to spot - it's big, black, and has a whacking big gold dragon on it. Necropolis is by Anthony Horowitz.

Then Christmas day night, boxing day and the 27th could be very eventful for you.

Essex of course!
Buy your small son an empty box and when he opens it, tell him it's "Action Man Deserter".

Can imagine what I'd get, box 1 - set of fuses; box 2 - paintbrush; box 3 - screwdriver (not the drinking kind) right the way up to box 24 or 25 - the latest electrical sander/screwdriver or other brand new fangdangly type of toolkit piece!

Harry! Shame on you! Most shops do beautiful wrapping services, you don't think mine would have a clue where the wrapping paper or sellotape was do you?!!
