Framed Wuthering Heights film print for my mother and a retro Leeds shirt for my dad. Both pretty safe bets.

Mum: An owl handling experience day.
reckon he'd dig both of them.
I now know just to get my mum a shitload of Clarins stuff. Stepdad some Chelsea memorabilia or art supplies.
Having a parent with basically no interests or hobbies makes Christmas and birthdays fucking annoying.
father : no clue, everything i get him never gets open, he has countless well chosen dvds still in the wrappers. The best present i ever got him was a big broom as a joke a few years ago, he's always out with it, he fuckin loves it
dad: Mrs Brown's Boys on dvd (well that sounds dodgy) and maybe a joke meerkat
Milk crate mini bottle vase thing (yup)
Peanut butter fudge
If I knew any of you I would go to great lengths to point out the slipper recipiant is not my father but as I don't - fuck off cunts.
Mum: posh coffee and other stuff related to coffee probably
mum - yankee candle and a stand
dad - french wine caraffe
As in, an actual doormat. I asked if she was sure she didn't want something a bit more exciting and she said its what she needs so who am I to argue.
Anyone know somewhere that sells nice doormats?
Heals used to do nice ones.
My Dad bought my Mum a set of saucepans once. She was well impressed.
So I'll get them some sweets. Maybe a new cat.
Dad - new My Brightest Diamond album, couple of books
Mum - no idea. some stuff, probably.
this silver ornamental cat thing, and me mate is making a United badge/stone to go inside it.
oven gloves (cos she hasnt got any and it annoys me if i go back home and mek a sunday dinner/casserole).
Watch (ooh its a nice watch!)
2x box of chocolates (lindt and thorntons)
that's as far as I've got.
dad: blu ray player (getting mum to chip in a bit)
