    I think maybe a handwritten list would be better, because if I see something on offer I want to buy someone, I can never remember how many things I've got them already

    I feel rather behind now xD But to be fair, I did spend the money on a dog... Lol.

    I've got a few things now though. I'll write a list here when I know exactly what I've got xD

    August is a great month to get stuff as all the shops will be running clearances for the Autumn stock, you could look to pick up some bargains.

    Yeah, that's a good idea.

    *Note to self - save money. lol!

    I know I've got £50 so at least I've got that much already to spend. Just have to convince my mum that it doesnt need spending earlier xD

    Just a tip to all you guys if you have a bodyshop in your town and are looking to buy early. Bodyshop seem to be clearing their old winter stock in the store in my city. They have half off everything and the stuff they have would make great gifts. They have really wintry, christmassy scents like warm amber, cranberry, rich plum, pomegranate, winter spice.

    Perfect crimbo gifts!
