    My sister got my stepson that. When he was in bootcamp he wasn't allowed electronics. Except it was expressed as nothing that needs batteries. As the say, anything not prohibited is allowed.

    I gave my wife a visit by me to the chiropodist. :)

    All this living in bare feet stuff is great, but they certainly don't look too pretty after a while.

    Well having read the "What did I get" thread I felt rather bummed...but then I came here and got reminded that giving ACTUALLY is more fun than receiving! (If you put in a little time and effort)

    Mum: Lush (look it up on UK google) Gift Box
    Dad: Richard Branson Autobiography, Dan Brown book
    Sister: Photogrpahy book which she has wanted for ages but never been able to buy for herself (she's a skint student), and a CD
    Best Friend (who I might fancy a teeny, weeny little bit): A day trip to london to go shopping, then off to see the producers at the theatre in some of the best seats in the house. And a book called "The Goddess guide" (It's awesome - I want a copy for myself)
    Equally best friend: Why don't penguins feet freeze book, and a kit put together by me to make a vesper Cocktail (or 20)
    Other equally best friend: A remote control car/plane, which cost £2.94 - masterful bargain hunting there! (in honour of his aspirations to own a "car that can fly...one day")

    I enjoyed giving them and buying them easily as much as I did opening my gifts this morning! (especially the trip to London... - although the gift she gave me in return was equally awesome :D)
