    Gift inspiration sorely needed

    Alrighty folks and folkettes, I need your help!

    I am attending a party where each guest have to buy a present for another guest. We have a budget of 10.00 each and we need to buy for a specified person, one present for each of the letters in their first name. Each present have to start with a letter from their name/

    The person who comes closest to the 10.00 "wins" the game.

    I've got to buy for a chap called Matthew, so that's 7 presents for 10 pounds.

    I've got the "A" in his name sorted as I found a copy of "Asterix and Obelix" in a charity shop - that was 32 pence.

    any idea's?

    How about browsing round your nearest Pound Shop for inspiration ?

    You could push the boat out and give him Tictacs and a twix bar - that should leave you plenty of dosh for a lovely hat from the charity shop / market. Depending on where you buy it from they may be able to write you a receipt out for the exact figure you need to make up your 10 - or would that be cheating ?

    I am pretty sure that cooking the receipts would be cheating

    Add the suggestion of a hat (try charity shop or Peacocks?) from Yliander and a Wispa chocolate bar too? Agree you buy the sweeties first then shop around for the hat, to see how close you can get to your budget.

    Bet many a cheap plastic whistle fell out of a cracker over Crimble - sod's law, innit ?

    A novelty store might have stocked some, and a safe bet would have been a pet shop; though again possibly quite expensive and ultrasonic to boot.

    Ahhh, but isn't there a 99p shop in Sutton High Street?

    Don't forget there are two joke shops which have lots of good ideas in them. Personally I prefer the joke shop in Times Square as they stock dance shoes in there too .

    A cheap watch maybe?

    Or a bottle of mineral water?

    Or keep the receipt for the Wrapping paper.

    If you don't want to get a Wispa, then what about a woggle? Or a worm sweetie?
