    I'm kidding... dunno really ... I bought my wife sponges, washing up liquid and pink rubber gloves with sparkles on last year... she's been happy as anything ever since.

    Last year I was presented with one of those foot graters - I don't think I'll EVER let him forget that.

    i choose my own. far less painless for either of us. i'm happy, and he's happy that i'm happy. he does have final say, so i can't get away with ridiculous things... this year's is on my desk in front of me! :D

    they don't get wrapped, @Spiritwalkerness ! and tbf, i need to try most of them on... last year it was perfume that i really like but can't usually afford. mr s knows that i'm really fussy so he's just grateful that it's exactly right!

    I prefer 'particular' rather than 'fussy' :D

    Also @lanokia, don't buy one of those electrical hair remover things. Some time ago, Miss F was bought one buy a boyfriend who was toast not long after Christmas.

    I'm under very strict instructions what I can buy... which isn't very much.

    Just do as you're told and you won't go far wrong.

    i am. he's seen me not buy many things because of a tiny detail, that he's probably very relieved when i do like something...

    I think I'm pretty easy to buy for... a film with explosions, alcohol, a book about future stuff or history... clothes that make me look like a badass [in my head obviously]
