Christmas cheer

Standard

With less than a week to go until Christmas day I’m sure many of us are rushing around trying to find the perfect gifts for loved ones. The one gift I have left to buy is one for my father, his sense of humour is much like mine and so I have been searching to find him a good book. These are some I came across and thought I’d share with you.

‘365 Reasons To Be Cheerful,‘ at only £ 5.00 from Marks & Spencers.

‘Peter Kay: The Book,’ at £10.00 from Asda.

‘An Idiot Abroad: The Travel Diaries of Karl Pilkington,’ at only £ 3.86 on Amazon.

Jeremy Clarkson, Round the Bend,’ at £10.00 from Waterstones.

‘ The Fry Chronicles,‘ at £3.86 from Tesco.

‘Comedy Dave’s book,‘ at £5.85 on Amazon.

‘Keith Lemon: The Rules: 69 ways to be successful,’ at £6.25 from Whsmiths.

‘Gangsta Granny,’ at £6.49 from Tesco.

The Inbetweeners Yearbook,’ at £ 8.49 from Whsmiths.

‘Scared of Santa, scenes of Terror in Toyland,’ at £4.55 from Whsmiths.

After the Christmas festivities there’s also the new year to look forward to and so its time to take down the 2011 calendar and search for a replacement to be hung on the wall for another year. Here are some calendars to make you giggle in 2012:

Adult humour calendars.:

Violent Veg X-rated.

Naked male farmers.

Goats in trees 2012.

Every year I always have a giggle at the Elf Yourself website where you can upload pictures of yourself and friends onto an Elf and watch them dance, it’s a must…take a look at my example 🙂
