I'm relying on my son to get gifts for my grandsons. More than likely the latest football boots and kits and I'll just give him the money.

Probably money for everyone else including my wife who wants to buy a gold necklace.

The best present I ever bought my Mum was a Hoover vacuum cleaner. Please don't laugh, she really needed one and I bought it for a purpose.

In 1992 Hoover UK decided to run a promotion, which for them ended in total disaster. The promotion entailed buying a Hoover product costing over £100 and you would get TWO free tickets to Orlando Florida.

As I wanted to take the family of 4, this entailed buying TWO Hoovers (they cost a total of £202)

Hoover totally underestimated the popularity of this promotion and as a consequence tried every way to stop people getting these flights. I sent every single form and request via recorded delivery. I kept copies of everything. I was contacted by BBC Watchdog and local newspapers. I found the address of the company handling the promotion (It was a box number) A lot of hard work and sheer dogged persistance got me those 4 free flights to Florida. Happy Dance

About 220,000 of us got tickets. Thouands of other didn't.

It was the biggest promotional disaster of recent times. It cost Hoover £50 million and their UK base which they had to sell..

It even made Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoover_free_flights_promotion

Edited to add. I could never better that as a Christmas present...and it brings back so many happy memories...Cat

Possibly a newly furnished house if I could afford it

My wife has had a new kitchen, which I've just finished fitting and the bedroom is being redecorated.

My best friend's birthday is on Monday, one week before Christmas. So I always send her an Amazon gift voucher for Christmas and take her out for her birthday in the New Year. It's always difficult when a person's birrhday is so near to Christmas and my friend is not easy to buy for. So I kill 2 birds with one stone - she loves Amazon and good food. Sorted 😉

I am useless at thinking of presents.
The best one for my wife I have gotten is tickets to see a show - think it was Derren Brown.
