Tis The Season…Pass The Parcel

We are down to just 12 sleeps peeps and in the interests of providing you with a Gidday helping hand, I’ve come up with a few quirky and slightly questionable gift ideas for your nearest and dearest.

A subject close to my heart is reading so at the top of the shopping list is a little something for the bookworm in your life. Upon opening one of my daily Emerald Street e-newsletters this week, I found this fab booklight. It also holds your book open – you know, while you go a make a coffee or hang out the washing or go to the loo. You get the picture…

Available from Suck UK (yes really) for £40

Next it’s over to I Want One of Those. Popping in here always yields something unusual and it was a tough choice about which curiosity would inspire you most. But back in November, I lamented the wearing of socks with sandals so this has to be the perfect present for the saddo in your life…and let’s face it, everyone has one.

Available on I Want One Of Those for £7.99 (or 3 for £20 – you could knock off 3 saddos in one!)

I’ve done a fair bit of travelling this year (and it’s not over yet!) so my next inspired idea is for the traveller in your life. Cue The Scrubba, a lightweight portable bag which lets you wash on the go. Your clothes that is…

Visit www.thescrubba.com and fork out 59.95 Aussie dollars to Do It (your washing that is) Yourself

Christmas presents of the participative kind are next on the agenda. Imagine, you’ve stuffed yourself silly with Christmas fare, squeezed in a spot of pud and are looking for something to stop the family snoozing on the sofa. Billed as a ‘no holds barred game which stimulates after dinner discussion on controversial subjects of our times amongst friends’, After Dinner Arguments could be just the thing to inspire a bit of spirited conversation around your festive table this year…

Available from shinyshack.co.uk, you can get hours of family feuding fun for just £7.99

And finally there is the ultimate in glam grooming: a ridiculous gift at an entirely ridiculous price…

Glam up those tootsies with a Swarovski crystal duck nail brush from Etsy for the bargain price of US$175.

Because couldn’t we all use a brush with a duck on it?

12 sleeps to go peeps…can you believe it? Best you get cracking or you’ll end up as a late addition on Santa’s Naughty List.
