Unique and Alternative Christmas Gift Ideas

Giving Them something a bit different this Christmas!

many poeple walk through our lives heart shapes wood
We are now well into Christmas shopping season: a time of year when we trudge round the shops to find the perfect present...only to find exactly the same options available as last year: Perfume or novelty socks may suit some, but most of us would like to find something a little bit different for our friends and family. 
Items with slogans - whether witty or thought-provoking - are popular at the moment, so why not opt for a framed picture with an inspirational quote, alcoholic drinks coasters with witty quotes ("the best tonic has a large gin in it", for example) or a mug with a message of warmth and friendship on the outside? 

Looking For Vintage-Style Presents? 

Vintage and shabby chic is another popular trend, with a number of handcrafted items available that have been distressed or designed to look older than they are. A gift such as a distressed wood storage box, a vintage tray or a shabby chic photo frame is bang on trend, and something a little different to give as a gift. We also have a brilliant range of classic-styled Crimbo decorations that will be ideal!

Store Your Precious Memories.

Storage and keepsake boxes are a great gift idea, and can be tailored depending on the recipient's personality and interests. New parents will love a keepsake box to catalogue their child's growth, while keen cooks may appreciate a recipe storage solution to keep their kitchen tidy. With sewing and knitting back in fashion, a box in which to store thread, wools and other related bits and pieces is also a thoughtful gift.
Storage boxes are great gifts for those who like to be organised - and there are plenty of other gift ideas to make people's lives that little bit more organised. Memo boards, magnetic "to do" lists, weekly planners and 2014 calendars are all perfect gifts, and are available in a range of styles that will suit any recipient.
