I'm sure you're all going to hate me for this however...Christmas gifts.
I'm stuck on what to get my boyfreinds parents, I don't know them well enough to know what they would like but I do know them enough to know gift vouchers are going to be no good, not personal enough and letting people know how much you spent on them is a little tacky. Last year I went in with my boyfriend for something, silly gifts, a book for his mum and some nice wine - well it was middle priced wine, whether they liked it I don't know. This year all I can think of is facial/bath stuff from The Body Shop for his mum however that still leaves his dad, also bath stuff is sort of what you get someone when you can't think of anyhting else to get them...which is sort of ok if it is friends, however boyfriends parents would really need to get something that fits into personal but not too personal. It also needs to be something good because he still lives with them so I'm always around there and his mum always makes me food, but I'm on a budget so maybe £10-£15 each.
Anyone have any ideas on what I could get them?
What are you getting your partners parents for Christmas?

My hands are really really dried out. At first I thought it was just becuase we had turned the heat on, and I wasn't used to the dry air, so I started coating them in vasoline and putting on gloves everynight before I went to bed, and it hasn't helped. The funny thing is, its just the back of my hands that hurt, and ususally its my face and back that dry out during the winter. I even tried taking benodryl incase it was an alergic reaction. Any ideas what I can do besides vasoline and lotion without alchohol in it?
thanks.
