Drabble: Family Gifts

Title: Family Gifts

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Rhiannon and family

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 406: Present at tw100

Spoilers: Nothing specific.

Summary: Even for the man who knows everything, buying presents for family is a nightmare.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.







Buying presents wasn’t something Ianto enjoyed, especially when it came to his sister and her family. He rarely saw them, so had no idea what toys and games the kids were into, or what they’d already got.



He and Rhi had grown apart, he didn’t even know her favourite perfume, and Johnny was a complete mystery. The only thing Ianto was sure he enjoyed was beer, and his sister wouldn’t thank him for giving her husband a case of best brew.



It was easier to just hand over some money and let them spend it on something they really liked.



The End

I understand Ianto but giving money is sometimes so impersonal ...
Sometimes it's the best way though.

Thank you.
Or call her and ask.

Great drabble.
Yeah, but that would have her saying that he'd know if he visited more often...

Thank you!

That's what I do these days as I can't get to the ships. At least they have the fun of shopping for something they REALLY want. Jack is easy to get gift for - all he really wants is Ianto, and vice versa
I f=do the same. My sister and her family are 50 miles away so I'd have to post gifts. Money is easier and more practical.

Jack and Ianto treat each other to nights out, or nights in ;)

Thank you.
