Box of practical things

By |November 22nd, 2015|

Stamps, batteries, selection of new birthday cards, seeds, sweets, biscuits, de-icer, scarf , insoles, toothbrush, soap, hand cream, gas alarm, candles, matches – basically all the little things that you want handy/ emergency supplies of. It’s a thoroughly useful present and one that’s quite fun to compile. This is a really good present for kids to get for grandparents.

Day out at football or rugby

By |November 22nd, 2015|

For Christmas, I took my great uncle and grandad to Twickenham this year to watch Harlequins v London Irish. We had a great day it and it’s nice because they used to take me when I was a little boy. Also works for football games – maybe something special like a Europa / Champions League match

Ticket to see a band they like… in another country!

By |November 21st, 2015|

This is bascially two gifts in one and perfect for a special occasion. Sometimes it can be difficult to get tickets to bands here in the UK, however, last year I got my boyfriend tickets to see Muse in Rome!! It was fantastic – we took a long weekend in Rome and he got to see his favourite band.

NIght in a fancy hotel

By |November 21st, 2015|

This is a good last minute gift – I couldn’t work out what to get my wife for her birthday and at the last minute booked a fancy room at the Savoy. She thought this was the best gift ever because it was so fancy

Tickets to a TV show

By |November 21st, 2015|

Theatre and cinema tickets are an obvious gift choice but why not get them some tickets to be a member of the audience on a TV show they love. You need to try and order these well in advance because you’ll probably be on a waiting list, but more often than not these tickets are free!

Sunrise alarm clock – light not sound

By |November 21st, 2015|

I read we lose a year of our lives to noise stress (things that make our hearts hammer unexpectedly!) and after getting stressed about this, my boyfriend bought me one of these lamps for Christmas. They use light instead of noise to wake you up, like a natural sunrise. It is fantastic, I feel a lot more awake in the morning

Coffee machine

By |September 13th, 2015|

Got my husband a very attractive shiny new coffee machine for our wedding anniversary. It looks stylish and modern and fills our house with the gorgeous smell of fresh coffee. Highly recommended.

Metal detector – great for families

By |September 5th, 2015|

Bought a metal detector for my cousin and her family. They love it – the kids really enjoy going on the beach and having a dig for some treasure. They are not that expensive either and it makes a really unusual gift. I got one for around £60 on ebay, but there are some companies you can find online.

London show

By |September 5th, 2015|

Treated my wife to a weekend in London for her 40th – we went to see Jersey Boys (which I actually enjoyed!) and stayed over in a hotel. She loved it and it made it special

Gas barbecue

By |September 5th, 2015|

Bought this for my husband in May for his birthday and we’ve had a great BBQ summer! It’s worth getting a good one £130+
