What parents really want (and don't want) for Christmas

What parents want

A 'real' gift guide:

  • Sleep (Imagine if I had an affiliate link for this!!).

  • A child free hangover (Actually, no hangover at all, just the night out without the feeling of dehydrated death that follows).

  • To feel like an 'actual human', rather than a servant to a band of hungry bipolar menopausal dwarves.
  • To finish a meal/drink without anyone taking some or it going cold.  #bliss
  • To poo in peace.

What they don't want

  • Your unsolicited parenting 'advice'.
  • The dreaded 'danger nap'. (You know the one, when you child decides to 'rest their eyes' at 6pm and you know you'll pay for it later).
  • Kids filled with sugar (I'm looking at you grandparents, it's not funny)
  • To hear the words, 'I don't feel too good' (especially if someone has mentioned the phrase 'vomiting bug' in your presence recently)


  • Noisy toys; drums, whistles, xylophones, battery operated toys, bears that repeat the same thing over and over and over and over (till you wish for the end)
