We’ve arranged with some friends who live nearby to do presents and other stuff together on Christmas morning. This is primarily aimed at our children but we thought that we might also get some presents ourselves. However we didn’t really want to go over the top nor to make it too expensive. So our collective brains have come up with the idea that we will see who can get the most extravagant gift from eBay. We’ve all picked a name out of the hat (there being three couples involved) and we’ve set the following rules:

  • the gift must be under £10 (and ideally that should include post & packing);
  • it ought to be something that the chosen person will like/use;
  • it must come from eBay;
  • you have to have it physically available on Christmas Day;

The person that we think has chosen the best gift will get their money back (to a limit of £10) and the kudos of knowing that they are the best ebay bargain hunter in our group.
Anyway, I’m off to look for girlie things on ebay to fill my commitment to the competition…
