As it's nearly Christmas, I thought I would try this idea out.

If you have an Amazon wishlist - post it! Please at least have some items that the average person can afford, random folk off the internet probably aren't going to want to buy you a 48 inch TV.

I know that I'm going to go through and try and buy people what I can, so it would be nice if others could too. I did this last year in another community and it worked out really well, but I thought this time it would be best if I stuck to the UK as then you can all be cheap and use free postage and packaging options :)

Hope you all get something awesome out of this.

Edit; I feel a little bad for accidentally taking the credit for this idea, I actually stole the idea from the lovely inspired after she went on a wishlist filling spree on her friends page - so yes, any credit should go to her rather than me :)

This is a good idea, I'll try and fill a few random wishes, although I'm annoying in that I generally only buy what I would want myself!

My wishlist. Mostly after the books, atm!

Thank you very much to anyone who buys me something! I don't mind if it's random cheapy stuff from the marketplace, it's all appreciated.

I wish I could be more organised to prepare a wish list! In fact what would be fab is that I do a wish list and then random strangers buy me stuff, maybe we should all endevour to do one act of random pressie buying, Call it secret stranger

I've sent you something from your list but it might take an age to get to you as I was a bit cheap with delivery :P

If anyone wants to be able to buy me cheaper marketplace stuff you can use the address

Marysia Kay
Treadwells Books
34 Tavistock St
London WC2E 7PB

My friend doesn't mind me having stuff sent there and Amazon doesn't allow marketplace items to be sent to wishlist addresses.

I've already posted the link to my wish-list in this thread above, but I just wanted to thank you for this idea.

Sending some surprises to 5 or 6 people gave me a lovely warm glow inside. So thank you so much for starting this off, and giving us all the chance to do something nice for other people that we wouldn't have otherwise done.

I have a few cheap books lurking around in there somewhere. As soon as I have time I'll go through some of your lists and pick. Happy Christmas!
