What kind of Christmas shopper are you? Did you start in October and have the majority wrapped already? Or are you yet to begin and are currently wondering what all the fuss is about? Either way, we bet there’s still that one person for whom you really cannot think what to get, or even where to start! So, don’t worry, we thought we’d offer up some suggestions of our finest and favourite ranges that we always turn to when asked for inspiration, all of which are purse friendly and perfect presents…
Ladies first! When it comes to gifts for her, our go to brand has to be Powder UK who create and supply us with the most wonderful accessories - including hats, scarves gloves and socks. Our favourite part of selling any of these products is the packaging because every item from Powder is supplied with complimentary, luxury gift packaging - even the ankle socks. It’s a joy for us to sell and to be able to give as a gift. You can never have too many scarves – and the Powder ones are just fantastic. This Floral Squirrel Print Scarf is just one of many of their large, boldly printed scarves that we have for winter, and at just £22.00 it’s an absolute steal. Their gorgeous gloves are without doubt one of our best sellers, and this pair of stylish long length Vivienne Wool Gloves are equally good value at just £20.00. If you’re looking for something that’s still that wee bit lower in price, then why not consider a pair of Powder socks – it might sound like a cliché – but these are no ordinary socks! Each pair is made with bamboo, making them super soft and the designs are really special, like these fabulous pheasant ankle socks at just £7.00, perfect if you need just a “little something” for a special lady.
Moving on to men, whenever anyone asks us “What do you have for guys?” we always show them the Gentlemen’s Hardware Collection, which includes lots of practical and gadgety gifts. This brilliant Credit Card Tool is the gifting solution for the man that has everything. No bigger than a bank card, and therefore perfect for keeping in their wallet, it can be used for 15 different things: including two sizes of flathead screwdriver, a bottle opener, a spoke key, a file and a phone stand! With a Titanium finish for maximum durability, this is genuinely the ultimate gadget they never knew they needed, and it’s only £10.00! As with all the range it’s supplied in stylish gift packaging, ideal. However, if you have a little more to spend then how about the Adrenaline Multi-Tool or the Marine Multi-Tool? Depending on their hobbies, both of these feature lots of handy tools in pen knife form, come attractively boxed and still wont break the bank at just £20.00 apiece.
If it’s gifts for kids you’re looking for, then look no further… we’ve got the most fantastic new brand in stock in our Toy Shop and it’s been so popular that we’ve already had to restock. It’s called Clockwork Soldier and they specialise in paper activities and craft kits aiming to provide fun and challenging projects – without a digital screen in sight, hurrah! Each of their products are lovingly inspired by nostalgia with a “fresh and creative take on gifts, games and curiosities that will amaze children and adults alike”. For example this Build a Terrible T-Rex Head – an amazing activity kit which includes everything creative kids need to make a t-rex head to crash through their bedroom walls* (*no walls will actually be harmed during this project!). Or if Dinosaurs are not their bag, then how about this Deep Blue Seascape? Explore the depths of the ocean with this 3-in-1 project with a 3D wall chart, fact packed board game and playful activities included. Both are just £9.99, making them really affordable – and they come beautifully packaged, in flat cardboard sleeves – perfect for posting if you need to.
If the children in mind are still too little for such activities then how about some tiny person tableware like this Sloth and Friends Dining Set from Sass and Belle? We find that cups, bowls, plates and cutlery are always great gifts for little ones – and welcome ones for parents! You can create your own sets too from ranges such as Bear Camp, featuring adorable outdoorsy illustrations or Woodland Friends which includes many charming little characters. Even if they’re still that bit too wee for weaning then these gifts are always appreciated for when the time comes.
We hope this has helped! But, if you’re still struggling then pop over to The Square Peg Online for lots of lovely gift suggestions including a selection of gifts for her under £20, gifts for him under £20 and Traditional Toys to inspire you, or drop by the shops and let us lend a hand!
