Holiday Gift Guide: For Something Different

Ever rummage through the shops before the holidays feeling like you always buy the same sort of gifts for people and then wait until the last minute for inspiration to strike? Me too. So I dug around for a few bits and pieces that are somewhat out of the ordinary for anyone who is still looking!

something different

1. A fantastic super geeky iPhone case that you can wear like a cross body handbag. 2. A mini greenhouse to spruce up a work desk. 3. Baking is a bit more fun with these measuring shovels. 4. Kitty flats, anyone? 5. A little selection of spices for the cook. 6. Photography + travel + Michelin stars? Yes, please. 7. Know a tea afficionado? Make them grow their own builders tea (another good work desk project). 8. One of my street art photography prints on canvas. 9. A bottle opener shaped like a quill. 10. A pretty lawn sign with a house number from my Dad’s shop.


What’s on your list this year that’s different from the usual?

    I have always wanted a pair of those kitty flats! I got my sister-in-law a 5 year diary that asks you a different question each day of the year. So you can see how your answers have changed over the years. I thought that was rather fun and unusual.

      Oh, I love that diary idea! That’s so cool. Where’s that from? (And yes, I want the kitty flats too!!)
