Christmas present buying for boys

If you need a proper "auntiegwens guide to" I can write one but if you are a boy with a short attention span this idea would do.

Buy a beautiful handbag for your beloved.
Inside the beautiful handbag, place a surprise present.
For maximum effect it should look like this

This type of behaviour makes women (well, women in the auntiegwen household) very, very enamoured of the man who bought the present.

What happened to the Terry's All Gold wrapped in a Sainsbury's plastic bag? You all have such high expectations!

A most excellent idea ... if he doesn't put some little gadget for the car inside the lovely blue box, which apparently was Plan #1 for my Christmas gift. Fortunately for him, he ended up not doing this. He is still alive and healthy.

Pearl - another lover of the duck egg blue box? welcome, you'll fit right in :)

Ayak - it was, a huge massive surprise and so perfect

Alienne - I would think so

Steve - I would have been delighted with any chocolate but jewellery is the low calorie option and you know how lardy I'm getting

Pinklea - he's learning fast, you've trained him well :)

Libby - some men/boys are so sweet, will look forward to January :) xx

Fhina - you can open it now, you deserve a lovely duck egg blue box my dear xxx

Gigi - I can do as much detail as you like,a beginners guide, so to speak

Sandi - it was a silver bracelet with a heart tag on it, to match a necklace with a heart tag, so thoughtful xxx

Betty - would you like me to anonymously send a link to the blog to Mr Betty?

Did you get one?! (me neither!)
My minted nephew bought a Tiffany engagement ring for his girl friend last year, and he bought a nice little inexpensive silver necklace with a heart design, wrapped it in a muslin bag and popped it into the Tiffany box as a Xmas gift for his little cousin, (ie my Little E) who is 11 and believes it is a real Tiffany necklace.... and I'm not going to tell her otherwise as it's a great coup for her self esteem with 'the girls'!!!
