Hello I am starting this chat for some advice from people for what to get for Christmas presents.

I am looking for something for my dad, he likes medieval and Gothic things, he collects decorative swords however I can not think of anything to get him. He does like his gold and silver rings and bracelets but I don't think my budget will stretch that far.

I'm also looking for a present for my sister, last year I got her a hand drawn portrait of her old horse that sadly passed and actually brought her to tears but I don't know how I could top that or even get close. She is training to be a jockey and absolutely adores horses and she also has 2 cats and a border collie. She also loves minions so I have a minions travel mug from Claire's yo go in her Christmas bag.

Due to my money problems with buying a car and insurance for my age I can't spend a lot so budget would probably be £15 each. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! :grinning:

What do you think of this?

Just to try and help you. How about a horse style charm? https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=horse+charm

How about a medieval film for your dad? We all have our different tastes but I absolutely love this this film, he may have already seen it though. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kingdom-Heaven-DVD-Orlando-Bloom/dp/B000A896J8/ref=tmm_dvd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1508172623&sr=8-2

Thank you for your suggestions, my sister isn't big on bracelets much like me but for her it gets in the way of her work and she works crazy hours with the horses so wouldn't be used much if at all. I like the other item you suggested for my dad so I will look on the website and see I'd anything stands out :blush::blush:
