101 things you would not like to receive for Xmas!

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

<groan> Musical socks!!
Like the ones that the granddaughter bought for Andy the year before last... then I washed them & they sounded like the battery was going... and Leah thought it was the funniest thing one particular day to just keep pressing that button...... :roll:

And into the bin they went!! :mrgreen:

Is there such a thing as a bar of chocolate that's too big?

Musical clothing - my daughter had a pair of musical socks that went into the washer once too often - we often heard mysterious wailing sounds coming from the laundry basket!

My mother keeps trying ro "reward" me with Lancome products :pale:
49 No Lancome products - or anything else that contains chemical carp thank you
50 One of those jewelry holders that looks like a torso in a frock
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

Are you sure it's not just the lurid socks they're attached to that the moles don't like? :lol:

51 Any pointless phone gadgets, it's a brick that rings and that's all I need!
52 Tacky gifts for the garden, as a gardener I really do have what I want already.
53 Cat toys, how to you explain that the expensive toy that someone has bought them is being ignored for a rolled up bit of paper?!

Tis the season :santa:

54: pyjamas or slippers, i have enough and always end up giving the new ones away as i like my trousers 3/4 length!

55: any kind of smelly product unless its organic

56: cheap chocolate ( i like mine to actually taste like chocolate and be at least 70% cocoa fussy i know)

57: naff xmas-y themed items, they'll either go to the charity shop or wont see the light of day till next year.

58: if it gathers dust i dont want it, if its useless i dont want it, if i already have it whats the point?

grateful arnt i :tongue:
