what do you buy the man who has everything??

Well more like the man who wants nothing!!!
I always get lovely husband to write me a list but he is so flipping practical, unlike his wife who likes pointless but pretty pressies ;)
We don't go overboard for one another but we do get each other a few little gifts to open and I was browsing here... and found, what I think is, a fab stocking filler...and its far from practical...

pointless... but very cute and very apt following our trip....he'll love it!!
I aim to wrap up everything this weekend. Then next week I can concentrate on posting the swaps I have outstanding (nearly there ladies!!)

This week has been a busy one for me (more on that next time) but we are still taking the time to enjoy the activity the calendar tells us we must be doing today....
yesterday was watching a Christmas dvd -I have treated the boys to some new ones this year, including this...
if you like Madagascar, you'll love this...Happy Julianuary!!!
Today's is reading some new Christmas stories, we have been reading Christmas stories at bedtime all week, but the treasury on the right is new, and will be opened at bedtime tonight :)
The nativity book is great I bought it after W made his Jesus birthday gaff 5 or 6 years ago. He always liked the photographs of children acting out the story..
I have to say C was not particularly thrilled by the last 2 cards he has pulled out, but hey life can't be all about glitter and glue can it???
(wait til he see's tomorrow- tidying the toybox ready for Father Christmas coming ;) - poor boy......they will get better!!)

Am sure he'll love it - especially as it will remind him of your recent holiday together.

Why are men so hard to buy for?????

I agree about the presents for husbands thing, my husband never wants anything but I want to show my appreciation to him. This year I think I will get a clock repaired and revamped that used to belong to his parents and now lives in our loft...he grew up with it's chiming tones and I know he used to like it.
I'm sure your husband will like that NY in a bag

My mum brought me that NY set from muji following the year we went on holiday there.
