    Pick up a tin of Quality Street? Cranberry sauce? Mr Kipling mince pies?

    Cake decorations? Somebody's present or a box of Christmas cards?


    Come and show us here so we can ooooh and aaaah over all your purchases! :)

    Oh, I love it. :D


    I bought these today as I've never seen them before and they look yum! If they pass my taste test tonight I'll buy another box for Christmas. :pac:

    They have all the different boxes, including the assorted box, in Debenhams, if that's any good to you. :)

    Bought three hampers one for the mammy, one for my OH's Gran and one for my Aunt whose house we are staying in. I am quite jealous of the wicker boxes they get delivered in but we would never get them on the plane.

    Also got a pair or personalised gymnastic hand guard thingys for the wee one. And got myself a pair of shoes that I hope will be delivered before Christmas.

    Bought nothing today, but I bought the last of my presents on Sunday (and wrapped them!) and bought the last of the cards yesterday. All I've left to do is decide if I'm buying myself a Christmas present :D

    A bottle of Walsh's Hot Irishman's 10 year old Whiskey for my father in law.
    Earrings for my mother and youngest daughter.

    Nothing bought since the weekend and I still have a few things to get - I've just written my remaining list and determined to get at least 2 more gifts at lunchtime!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,670 ✭✭✭ SarahLil


    Didn’t get to post here yesterday bought myself 2 pairs of boots one pair I couldn’t leave in Penneys they were 7 euro
    Got my OH some Chanel aftershave I was so happy
    the lady that served me was really good and wrapped the aftershave too I expressed my thanks to her as I am sure it’s not a nice time for retail
    One more present to get for himself, something for neighbors, I’ve baskets to make up too so I’m sure I’ll need to add a few things to them

    Got the Christmas pudding in Dunnes that’s on Special, some cheeses 3 for 2
    I was telling myself buy the cheeses they have good dates and they may have none left by Thursday or Friday


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,012 ✭✭✭✭ Toto Wolfcastle


    Vodka! 2 for €40 in Tesco. With various vouchers and coupons we ended up spending €10. That’s the last of what we need to buy for Christmas, apart from a gift box.
