Hi Guys, With the festive season coming up thought it might be nice to share any nice little present ideas you come across! Got this suggestion from a friend and think I'll pick it up though I don't know for who yet! Would be nice to give to someone into their cooking... It's called The Flavour Thesaurus and is basically a guide to what flavours compliment each other etc!Looks really cool too!

Good thread! For anyone with little nieces/nephews (3 yrs and under) Hanleys are selling swimming frogs,sharks, octopus for bath time- they are brill stocking fillers! I picked up my two at Heathrow but I am sure Hanleys in Dundrum probably stock these also! My niece and nephew love bath time so think this would be brill and they both have a little sis or bro on the way in december (both sisters due 4 days apart) so i know it will be used over the next few years!

If I am able to have kiddies after we get married, God help my H2B because his heart will be broke with me saying "ah but sure look at this one, it's perfect for the GIANT stocking we got so I can fit more in it"!! :o0 :o0 :o0 I have my niece and nephew spoilt altogether- love seeing their faces with things like this! Glad I could help! :wv (ps- if I lived in Dublin I would be broker than I am from being in Dundrum TC all the time!! Lucky you living so close!!)

Quite a luxurious present......but a lovely one! Each year Estee Lauder bring out a Christmas blockbuster. It costs €69 with the purchase of an EL perfume and is usually available at Debenhams & Brown Thomas. You might even come across the counter where they are willing to let you purchase the set without the perfume. Individually priced, the whole lot would add up to approx €400!

More details of what's included to be found here:
