The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 1013: Family Gifts
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 406: Present at tw100.

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

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.
