In a Christmas flashback I remembered one of my strongest Christmas memories was of a gift given to me by my elder brother and sister when I was around 18. I will preface this memory but telling you that I have a fear of small animals such as hamsters and guinea pigs!
Every year for a few years we had been buying each other small joke presents as well as a main present and this particular year my siblings decided to team up and buy me a joint joke present. A shoebox sized present complete with air holes was presented to me which I reluctantly received! As I sat there looking at the box they teased me about the contents and what could be inside, when I finally managed to work up the courage to lift a corner out sprang a giant oversized hat which had been folded for the sole purpose of springing at me and scaring me witless. Needless to say it worked and we all fell about laughing, and I wore that hat for the rest of the day!
Sibling relationships can be complicated and at Christmas time it can be tricky to find the right present, especially on a pocket money budget! So using our trusty gift guides and a few gems on the internet we have found some suggestions for you.
