I think I know what I want for my person and hopefully they'll like it and don't have the thing I already got.


I love Highland Park Whisky. A bottle of that will see us be good friends.

Or a new airsoft gun (I'd love a Tokyo Marui USP Compact)

;)

I’d imagine it’s difficult enough to get just one person to agree to buy for you.

If anyone has bought me something absolutely deplorable, I don't mind, just give me a heads up so I don't open it in front of my kids :lol:

Got paranoid that my dude would have all the things I've bought.

120 pages (!!) Of post history later, I'm quite sure they don't.
But I did skim a lot of it...

Secret Santa :wub:

I'm hoping to get the main present on Monday. If not I may wait till later in the month but it will still go out in plenty of time.

My person is annoyingly hard to buy for. Thought I’d got the ideal gift in mind, scroll through another 10 pages of post history and there it is. Bigger and better than what I deemed reasonable for SS. Gunna keep scrolling to avoid buying mindless tat of video game/football club/cartoon etc.

I had the same, my choices in my basket ready to buy and then I happened upon a post saying they had it. Start again!

So you haven't got me then.. :lol:

I've decided to risk having something custom made for my SS - could be a post-christmas gift though. Cutting it fine!

Been putting together a list of topics/interests that my victim has expressed an interest in to assist me in nailing down my present options.

It's currently a file on my desktop at work - I hope no snooping IT person ever looks in it as it's the most bizarre list of seemingly random things that I hate to think what impression they would get from seeing it! :lol:
