If you love candles in your home, you will need a rechargeable candle lighter.  Instead of searching for matches with the click of a button you can have your candles lit in seconds. I think this is a must have item for any home


Ethical Jewellery

A beautiful piece of sustainable jewellery is the perfect gift this Christmas. All individually handmade by skilled jewellery makers using recycled silver and gold. Good for the environment and great for gifting.


Maps International


If you know someone who loves travelling, but has had to put a stop on their travels due to lockdowns.  How about a Scratch The World print.  They can scratch off everywhere they have travelled to, while looking at future plans of when they can travel again.




Are you someone who loves jokey stocking fillers, or just wish your bathroom was left smelling nice.  Why not add a gift of Poo-Pourri. Now you can buy a hanging ornament if you would rather leave a suttle hint on your Chistmas tree or even the bathroom door handle.  Currently available at Holland & Barret.


Danilo Calendars

Every home needs a calendar, whether it is a family one in the kitchen.  To a personal one elsewhere in the house.  We all need to make notes of birthdays, anniversaries.  Plus there is the appointments and after school clubs.  Plus living in hope we can start to look at trips away.

Danilo have a huge range of calendars for every member in the household, and for everyones interests.  They also have a lovely range of diaries and other gift ideas as well


Water From A Crystal

A clever hand blown glass crystals are the perfect way to consistently water your plants. Simply fill with water and place in your flower pot with the cork stopper facing down. It will drip water into your plants soil over the course of 3 to 4 days. Avaiable from Waterstones

Confident a game that will get the whole family joining in, and can even be played virtually so if you are away from family and friends, everyone can still join in.

Confident is a guess the range game, where you are asked a random question such as

How many slices are there is a medium sliced loaf of bread?

You then have to write a range ie 35-39.  The winner is the person who guesses the correct answer in the range they stated.  Available to buy at Amazon

The Clear ‘N’ Collect multi purpose rake is a must have for anyone with a garden.  Designed and made in the UK the body of each rake is make from old car dashboards and end of life electrical goods.  The rake is ideal for those with back pain or limited mobility. For anyone who uses the rake it makes light work of clearing debris from the garden as it combines a rake witha shovel and leaf/garbage grabbers


Monopoly For Sore Losers

Monopoly For Sore Losers Board Game 0

Who does not like a good board game over Christmas.  Monopoly is one of the most played games, but now there is a new version of the classic board game.  Monopoly For Sore Losers, with a hilarious twist on the game which turns losing on its head and celebrates it instead.

You play the game just like the original, but instead when landing on paying rent or going to jail, it can help you win the game.


Village Green Signs

Chedworth house sign

If you know someone who has just moved or looking for a different gift for the home.  Village Green Signs have a lovely range of house signs.  Including the Chedworth as shown above. They have so many designs you will be spoilt for choice.



With the weather getting colder, everyone is looking to stay warm.  A great gift idea is this Sherpa Throw, which is available in a range of colours and sizes. Using a unique philosophy, the dual sided super soft blanket has a fleece face and a plush sherpa reverse. Which offers you different senses of softness to improve your sleep.

    My friend bought me a Dairy Diary back in 1989 and I bought myself one every year for about six years afterwards. I would order it from the milk man. We used ot have a German weather house when I was a child. I really want one now! I also want the Ramen set. Did you make this list for me?

      It sounds like I did make this gift guide for you 🙂

      The weather house is great fun, we had one years ago I do wish he would stay indoors and let her come out though. The Dairy Diary is great I am loving it and can not wait to start using it properly next year. We love Ramen and have never tried making it at home but I do intend to give it a go
