is solved. I went to visit my Aunt today and during the conversation I discovered she would like a new Gilet, so that's her Christmas pressent sorted. Thank you all for your suggestions they were much appreciated and gave me lots of ideas for future presents.

Paula :-D

There were some really great suggestions and several I was giving serious consideration to, then during lunch today Auntie just happened to mention she really would like a new Gilet .She was not giving out hints lol ......... Bless you all.

That's your problem solved but my mother told me that she can't think of a single thing she wants or needs so she is telling the family not to get her anything. Wonder how she will feel if she gets nothing from us all on Christmas morning :-0

I think it's great you got so many good ideas also that you have now got an idea from your Aunt.

SueM go back and look at my other thread, loads of really good ideas. I would not like to risk not getting a present for your Mother, give her a nice surprise. Bless her.

It my mums 90th birthday on christmas day and I have no idea what to buy her.

Don't,whatever you do,buy a shrug.

My elder daughter bought me one last year.

When I tried it on I looked the spit of old mother Riley.

Yes,I know that I have to be ancient to remember her,but I don't wish to look like her.
