Bees I need help.
FI has given me the task of getting his step sister and her hubby a xmas gift. They are such sweet people and I really would like to get them something nice. The problem is that they are down from the UK and have limited space in their suitcases. I really do not want to get them something that they will be forced to leave behind. I suggested maybe an amazon giftcard but FI doesn’t really like that idea plus with the stupid exchange rate we can’t really afford more than the equivalent of like $10-$15 and obviously neither of us wants to come across as cheap plus what can you actually do with like $10???
Are there any UK based sites that we can maybe get a gift card from? Or any other suggestions bees?

Why not buy something and have it shipped to their home?

Magazine subscription? Some kind of local food or candy?

I also live internationally and visit home for Christmas. Let me tell you – it’s all about the thought. I really don’t want to lug anything home so a nice card and something I can use before I leave (restaurant gift certificate, chocolates, wine) is the best!

Giftcard for a date night (or day) while they’re in town!

If you haven’t already had something shipped … I vote GC for movies or dinner

Thanks for the suggestions bees. I would have loved to get them something they could use before they leave but they’re spending their last few days in the country with her hubby’s family on a wine farm in the middle of nowhere.
@Hyperventilate: Thanks for this! I think this is the route we will go. It will be a nice surprise when they get back home and at least then our options aren’t so limited.
