    I tend to find it much harder because they always have everything and seem to never want anything. Does anyone else have this problem?

    Ive always struggled with my grandad, what do you buy for someone who has everything he wants and doesnt want anything else ............ its harder this year as so far hes been in hospital for 11 weeks and no sign of him coming out, he cant eat or walk now so it will be even harder to find something Crying or Very sad

    Hmm yeah I guess that makes it considerably harder. Is he allowed to take his own pyjamas in? If so, maybe you could get him a pair of pyjamas. Or perhaps a dressing gown for if he gets cold, maybe?

    I only have one grandparent to buy for and really hate having to do it - it's not like I ever see her. I get the the same boring lavender smellies and newberry fruits each year lol.

    It's annoying sometimes when you never see them and always get the same from them. Apparently I'm treated the same as my cousins who get £50 each spent on them. I get a chocolate bar. Sound the same at all to you? Laughing

    Lol that's unfair! I've never heard of a £50 chocolate bar. I'm a bit annoyed at my Nan at the moment. She hasn't bought for my Husband for a couple of years and he always helps her with her garden and any financial stuff she needs planning (that's his job), yet I know for a fact she does buy for my teenage Cousin's partners of a few months!

    No, exactly Laughing

    That's unfair as well! You should ask her why she doesnt buy for him. Does she forget things, by any chance? If so, she could just be forgetting you have a partner.
