Top Ten Christmas Gift Ideas - for the Brit who has everything....!

It is almost Christmas!!

I find it is so hard these days to get gifts for my friends and family, as everyone seems to have everything they want as soon as it hits the shelves. I blame credit cards! Before they existed people had to save and wait, which gave us 'gifters' the chance to buy it for them instead. 
When I was a kid, the main story in Eastenders at Christmas was Arthur running off with the Christmas Club money. Why would anyone bother with that now, when it can be just charged to a card?



I have included offerings from many of our talented Brits in LA members - if you have something you think should be added to the list please add to the comment section below.

1. Obviously if they have everything you can't go wrong with 'Adopt a Letter' and sponsor a letter from an underprivileged child on their behalf. Hundreds of letters that get sent to Santa go unanswered - now is your chance to get something for someone who has nothing, but credit it to the person who has everything!

2. Helping children not you or your gift recipients thing? Then perhaps adopting a cow or some chickens would be more appealing?Or even a stove? These are all things you can buy for less fortunate families in Africa. To find out how visit Heifer.

$50 gets a family biogas stove 

3. You can never go wrong with music - Brits in LA members who have Christmas CD's out !
