Sorry should have said my hubby was going back home to America. But food magazines is a good idea! I might have to get the hubby to get some for myself. Thanks for the idea!
I'm quite a foodie and love my food p*rn and one of the things I miss most about the UK is the brilliant food and wine magazines which are soooo expensive here (my favourite is "Delicious") Hubbie could buy a stash of them? And I bet they have brilliant freebie gifts on them now too as the December issues will be out in November :-)
Thank you all, great ideas. I actually like the idea of the floating candles, great idea! I'm sure I could find them here somewhere. Wish I was going back home instead of the hubby, trying to explain things to him to pick up..ugg he gets all flustered, lol...He's not a shopper! If any one has any more ideas would love to hear. Thx!

What about something like Sarah Nelsons gingerbread from grasmere (but she does mail order) Or if you have a selfridges close by then Vom Fass do amazing olive oils and balsamic vinegars in beautiful packaging-have a look at their uk website. It'll just be whether the weight is too much bringing it back
For the pool couple: floating candles for in the pool?Or some special olive oil? Or spices you can't get in Duba?
I might have got it wrong but isnt the OP asking for gift ideas that her hubby can bring back from the UK for friends here in Dubai for Xmas??

There was some interesting stuff at ARTEThe Mad Potter had some great oil bottles with pourers.http://madpotter.info
Budget, hmmm I'm not sure. I want it to be a nice gesture but don't want to spend a whole lot where they feel bad if they didn't get us anything. I was thinking 100dhs, maybe 150dhs? To much? To little?

Hello EW ladies,My DH is going home in a week and I want him to pick up some xmas gifts for 2 of our good friends. I need gift ideas for a 2 of our close married friends. I don't want to buy individual because then it will get a little pricey. Anyone have some ideas? Interests - both love wine! 1st couple loves to cook, entertain, grill, love their pool since they are in it every day. Same with the second couple I guess just minus the pool. They are both pretty laid back. I'm drawing a blank on what would be a nice gift. Any ideas anyone? Much appreciated!!
