Unusual Gifts under £30Wednesday, November 30, 2011
With December comes Christmas and in our household also about 5 family members which causes a bit of struggle with buying presents for everyone especially as a lot of them are males and not interested in sport. So I thought I’d compile here a selection of unusual but fun presents for Christmas or birthdays I’ve noticed this year and which I think will be pretty popular next year!
Keen photographer? How about a canon lens mug and biscuit holder? The lens cap lids even makes it great for drinking on the go. £12.99 from The Hut
From the great team who also have a lovely toy shop comes Coppordot Designs. Amazing personalised presents which are modern and stylish and rather classical to I think for a start they do these which my sister in law will adore £12.oo
Or for a stylish and practical present how about these cufflinks? (Stephen Frys a fan to!) at £26.50 they’re incredibly good value.
Some one interested in maps? Mind you saying that I’m not so interested maps but I do love these! Pick any year from 1890 to now and see how the world has changed! £25 from gone digging!
I bought one of these for my husband years ago, its still going strong and he uses it daily at work! £3.99 from Paramount!
Gloves that work with the touch phones! £6.79 from Gifted Gadgets
Someone who likes Whisky on the rocks? Since if you do have it on the rocks (i’m a brandy drinker myself but think these would work for that just as well) it tends to get diluted as the icemelts these are great! £9.95 from Hand Picked
Being slightly flutter brained I end up writing on bits and pieces all round the house which drives everyone a bit crazy when they cant find it so if you know someone like me what about this? £14.95 from Hand Picked
Gardner? A great way to be eco, save money and help feed each seedling ? Paper potter £10.49 from the green fingered folk at Crocus
Student, new baker? I thought this was a great idea for most people. An apron with useful guides on for a quick glance! £14.99 from Totally Funky
And I was almost tempted by this until I saw the price!!! Think for that cost I’d be half way to a safari to see the real thing! from Lazy Bones
