0e7a5315To my tiny little mind, present buying shouldn’t start until December. That makes me pretty disorganised according to most people, who had their lists done and dusted in September, but there you are. I don’t know anyone grown up who actually needs anything, so present buying becomes a quest to hunt down gifts that show love, affection and a bit of thought.

One of my favourite ideas is a personalised mug for friends. Pictures, slogans or a list of tea requirements hit the spot every time. Or a picture on a phone case. For a tenner, it’s a gift you know will get used and appreciated.

Or for the ultimate in hug value, take a look at our teddy bears, cows and dogs. Personalise their t-shirts with a picture or a message, and watch the recipient go a little bit misty eyed when they unwrap their very personal gift.

A bit of thought, and a couple of clicks, that’s all it takes. Happy present buying!

8V7A8497You could be forgiven for thinking that the country’s ever so slightly confused at the moment. Brexit, Boris and some¬†other chap have left us in what’s known in the trade as a bit of an omnishambles.

Still, summer is here, schools are breaking up all over the place and hundreds of schoolchildren are looking forward to 6 weeks of lie ins and no homework. Who cares if the nation rots when you don’t have to do times tables until they’re coming out of your ears.

Thank you gifts with a personal touch are just the thing for teachers, friends or collegues, whatever time of year. Our most popular teacher mug ever bears the slogan ‘Keep Calm and Pretend it’s on the Lesson Plan’ wise words, maybe we could have a ‘Keep Calm and Pretend You Know what You’re Doing’ for the new incumbents at Westminster as well!!

carolinelucas1401aI’ll be honest, I’m not 100% sure what the Speaker of the House of Commons actually does. Are you? I have an inkling that it’s something to do with being a sort of prefect separating squabbling schoolchildren, only with politicians.

John Bercow, current Speaker has just issued a ban on slogan t-shirts in the House of Commons. After Green MP Caroline Lucas sported a t-shirt with a ‘No More Page Three’ slogan, a 12 page dress code was launched, demanding that men wear suits and ties and women sport similar formal attire and banning “the ostentatious display of badges, brand names, slogans or other forms of advertising of either commercial or non commercial causes is not in order”

Definitely reminds me of my school prefects.
