I love Christmas. The mulled wine, mince pies, crappy music, but especially buying presents. Shopping online for Christmas presents is extra fun, as you can eat a mince pie, drink mulled wine and listen to crappy music at the same time, all from the comfort of your sofa.
One of the problems I have though is that I keep seeing things I want to buy for me. Like that lovely blue velvet chair. This is especially true of my new favourite gift website, Zinc & Co. Zinc & Co have collected together the most unusual and beautiful gifts they can find, and have added in an extra special promise – if you can find the same products cheaper somewhere else they will refund the difference. Now that’s a pretty big claim, and saves you a lot of faffing about and worrying about whether you’re paying over the odds.
Also, they offer next day delivery, so if anyone is still looking for a last minute Christmas gift for me, these are my four favourite things:
Sparrow keyring and holder
Have your keys looked after by a bird! Not only that, it doubles as a whistle, just in case you are ever holding your keys and need to call a dog or something.
Storm in a teacup
Well this is just adorable isn’t it? Who doesn’t like tea? It says it’s the perfect mug for a drama queen.
Desk bunny scissors
Is it a bunny? Is it a pair of scissors? Who cares, it will look cute on your desk.
They have loads of these and they are all beautiful. ‘O My Love, tonight the sky is a darkened circus tent above our dreams and the moon slowly walks a tightrope into morning.’
They also do wishlists, so you can choose your own favourite products without having to go to the effort of setting up a blog. Nice. Choose your favourite pressies now at Zinc & Co.
Hadn’t visited zinc & co before love the idea of buying an acre of land on the moon
You never know – it would be an investment purchase!
if only we could work out just where branson would want to build a hotel lol
Haha! We need to find out where on the moon is good for a golf course :-)
I like the rabbit scissors, and wish I’d seen them before I bought my friend’s Christmas present – damn it!
I also like the bird keyholder thing. But only if I lived in a different house and led a different life.
I know what you mean about the sparrow. I imagine it next to my back door when my back door is made of wood painted a nice pale blue colour and leads out into a garden full of wild flowers and secret benches.
Totally Anne of Green Gables.
