Me? OK I know at 44 I'm too old to ask for Christmas gifts really, but if possible I want an Xbox Series X console.

My 12 year old Nephew wants one as well.

So anyway, if you still get Christmas gifts, what's on your "wish list" this year?

    Both my daughters always tell me you're never too old for presents, especially Christmas. Having had the best present anyone could have ever given me this year....first grandchild, i can honestly say there's really nothing more i could possibly ask for. Although i'm sure my girls will think differently because they always spoil me.

    I would like to spend it with all my family like normal but that cant happen 

    As long as my son gets all he wants that's more important bit if Paul Hollywood wanted to cook my Christmas dinner I wouldn't say no

    LOL, if it was at all possible I'd want April Rose Pengilly, aka Chloe Brennan in Neighbours, wearing stockings and not much else, to provide the *ahem* entertainment this year, either her or the almost equally gorgeous Holly Willoughby.

    I really do believe that it's better to give than to receive, I have got the OH 9 pressies mostly jewellery but expect nothing in return. If I had to chose a present for my lot to get me it would be donations to charity, one year I did that insisted that instead or buying me anything they all made donations to the salvation army, who do some fantastic work.
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Oh yeah the Sally Army do excellent very worthwhile work, I used to volunteer as an IT tutor for the local branch up Woodhouse, bit of a Pig to get to and not much demand for the service in the area though.

    I actually would like a pair of slippers or some socks and some ginger wine, my favourite tipple.?

    totally agree about the Salvation Army, great organisation.
