Christmas presents

Postby Kimi » Mon, 05 Dec 2005 10:52 pm

I need some ideas cause I encouraged a new tradition in my family to at least have a present or part of it to be self-made but I don't have any great ideas at the moment, except making paper lamp cover for my mum, sewing my brother's name on some men handkerchiefs, and sewing a stitched drawing for my sister.

Since christmas is around the corner (well, sort of) and we're on the topic I thought we can also talk about prezzies for men.
I always find it difficult to choose a good present but here are some suggestions:
Xbox 360
Sony PSP
Travel vouchers
Handcuffs :lol:

Any more? So basically for family or friends or significant other.

Nay, no need to make that much effort for a man! :P
An xbox itself no matter who made it will make you lot happy, is it not?
As a saying says, you guys are easy ay? ;)

I'd prefer an Xbox 360 voucher.
some signatures are more equal than others

Not that I celebrate Christmas, nor taking a moral highground, but a nice Christmas present would be a world minus terrorism.
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Em Eye, then it will sound like a Miss World interview speech, as Saint pointed out. :lol:

Kimi,
Here is something that may be of interest to you, a hobby in which my mother’s current husband like to indulge and not one that is well known;
'Intarsia'. Just enter the word into Google where you will find plenty of information - it does seem popular amongst some of the Chinese living here in the UK, I don't know about other countries though.


Plavt.
