Shopping for Christmas Prezzies Part 1- Dad, Mum and The Grandparents

Have you ever been wandering round your local town on Christmas Eve wondering what to buy your family?

Well if you have you may never have to do that again with the 2 part  pupiline guide to what to get your family for Christmas. Never again will present buying be so difficult.

What to get....Dad

Normally, my Dad is always the hardest one to buy for in my family. He seems to make a list of the most expensive things , so having a tight budget makes buying for him very difficult. So, how do we find a lovely present for all our fathers? 'Sometimes the best present places can be really unexpected'. So check these ideas,

  • PREZZIE: Cool selection of Calendars: priced around £6.
  • SHOP: Clintons Cards
  • WHAT SORT: Anything from his Favourite Football Team to the Coronation Street calendar.
  • PRICE: £6-10


 

  • PREZZIE: Who Wants To Be a Millionaire desk-top calendars which will challenge his brain every day of the year.
  • SHOP: WH Smith
  • ALSO: Perhaps if he gets good at it you will get your money back if he goes on the show and wins £1 million.
  • PRICE: £6.99


  • PREZZIE: If your Dad is already the organised type, perhaps try this new idea, put your Dad's favourite photo onto a mouse mat for him to use with a computer.
  • SHOP: Jessops
  • PRICE: About £9
  • ALSO:  If he's not got a computer, perhaps just enlarge and frame his favourite photo.


What to get...Mum

If you do not want to give your Mum the usual shower gel and shampoo (or whatever you usually get her) then try these ideas.

  • PREZZIE:Candles are the 'in' present
    for friends and relatives this Christmas and I think they would be an ideal present for all those Mums out there.
  • SHOP: There are a wide variety of candles in most shops. Some of the cheapest but still nice ones are in Woolworths.
  • ADDED EXTRAS:Some come with a holder and others come separately.
        • ALSO TRY: In The Discovery Store, there are many candles along the Japanese/Chinese theme which would make a great present.
        • PRICE: Ranges from £1-2 per candle for the smaller ones, and £5-10 for the more funky chunky ones.
  • PREZZIE: If your Mum isnít into candles then there are a great choice of chocolates (always a favourite)
  • SHOP: Thorntons have a great selection of boxes that are quite affordable.
  • PRICE: £10-15


What to get...The Grandparents

Grandparents are usually easy to buy for because whatever you get them they will be happy with it.

  • PREZZIE: An old
    favourite is a picture of yourself in a lovely photo frame.
  • PROBLEM: It's a bit boring
  • PRICE: £5-10

 

 

However, if you want to get away from that, there are some other good ideas for a presents;


  • PREZZIE: Voucher from their favourite store.
  • SHOP: Many of the big stores such as Marks and Spencer and Boots are offering them at not very high prices.
  • PRICE: How much you're willing to give.



  • PREZZIE: Harvey's Bristol Cream
  • SHOP: Tesco or
    similar supermarkets, The Off Licence
  • PRICE: £10-15


This way grandparents can have what they want and be happy!

So that's half of it done, phewww... but still need something for the Brother or Sister. Well to help you out go to our sceond part to see what to buy them this year.
