This was great fun for my 8 year old – we bought about 10 gifts and hid them around the house and garden. He had so much fun following the clues to find them – would really recommend as something extra special to do. Ours was pirate themed (naturally)
You basically upload a photo to the Royal Mail’s website and you get a sheet of stamps with your photo attached to send out. Great for wedding invitations, christening presents, valentines – anything! For my brother’s wedding, I got a printed set of stamps with him and my sister in law on so that they could use them to send out their thank you cards. Was a really nice idea.
Bought this for my cousin for her wedding. You set the printer up at the reception and then send it pictures you take on your mobile phone or digital camera – you then bluetooth them to the printer and it prints them! We also bought a photo album and put it next to the printer – so you actually print, stick them in, and add a message. Really nice gift that was pretty unusual. Would also be good for special anniversaries and birthdays. You can pick these up at most electronic retailers.
Instead of the latest X-box I bought my son some wood and some nails and a cloth for a flag. I helped him do the basic structure but it is now a very good looking treehouse. Great gift idea and good for quality time. Either get a ready made one or attempt to make one yourself!
Did this for my friend – we played musical chairs, pass the parcel and murder in the dark, and his granddad (in the pic) won pin the tail on the donkey. Plus everyone was given a goody bag – absolutely hillarious – organised fun is the best!
In many parts of Europe it was traditional to supply a newly married couple with enough mead for a month, ensuring happiness and fertility. From this practice we get honeymoon or, as the French say, lune de mile. So buy a mead brewing kit, or brew some mead for the newly married couple for a wedding present.
We took all the incriminating photos accrued throughout the year of our good friend Stuart and made them into a 12 month dedication to drunken shenanigans – highly recommended! You can get a small one for under ten pounds.
