Do you ever get sick of waiting around for the answer of ''What do I get them this year?''
Every year, I battle with the gifting of the elder relatives, friends and family.
Children are easy , there is always a toy or two they want that will probably end up in the bin after a month or two but that is exactly my point in this post .
I've been taking a look at About Face , the Gift Giving All Wrapped up Site that has some wonderful Ideas .
There are some really affordable Ideas and a few of the collections are my favorites which I am hoping to get myself (or keep hinting to my husband for but never receive)
Pointless gifts , that every one buys but in reality don't need or use and lately I have decided that enough is enough.
There is always a use for something for the home.
If my husband can say that a kettle is my gift then whats stopping me from buying him glass to drink from or a towel to dry the dishes with .
..........Wait , dishes?
Sorry , I mean dirty oily hands after they've changed the oil in the family vehicle , pfft , no way you would find my man in a kitchen , he does not even know where it is, unless a beer is in the fridge that is.
Talking of beers .
First up we have a wonderful Idea for reminding them how selfish they really are.
About Face A Case of Beer Pint Glass
£5.95 and free UK delivery
This glass is hilarious and comical to say the least. We all know what our men are like and if you have a husband or man in in your life who really does not listen most of the time then this is a little joke set aside to make him listen , and enjoy a cold beer with of course.
The glass is 450ml and is dishwasher safe and comes in its own little box to keep it safe whilst under the tree at Christmas (we all know men pretend they don't care but when we are not looking they're shaking their presents while we are not watching in excitement), this will teach him but also be appreciated I'm sure.
Just Add Coffee Mug
So everyone needs a warm mug of Coffee in the morning before starting their day and I have to agree with the design of this mug.
Unless I have devoured a mug or two , I really am not going to function until I do so for me this is something I would see been used every single day .
'Instant Human. Just Add Coffee'.
I love this mug and my husband actually has this himself . In fact it was meant for me but he claimed it like everything else so obviously I'm waiting for him to buy me my very own (or a case of beer obviously).
Yep the cup has as much dry wit as my husband and is a perfect size of 380ml.
Dishwasher safe as well as microwavable for those forgotten drinks makes it the perfect gift .
Kitchen is Closed Tea Towel
Remember those oily hands?
Well here is a subtle hint for anyone wanting to give their partner or anyone else for that matter a hint that they're cooking or ordering in tonight.
We all know men don't listen so what better way than having it down in writing for them to see .
It's so humorous , I know there are going to be many out there who can relate to this witty quote.
This Tea Towel is a brilliant shade for the Christmas Season especially , imagine if you placed this on your kitchen work top and by some magic , the fairies came in and made you a meal ?
We all need one , Immediately.
It is made from Cotton Linen and is machine washable on cold setting.
Expensive Thoughts Ceramic Money Bank
It is my birthday in just over a week and those subtle hints are simply not working , buying someone one of these Money Banks might just be the best idea to get them started.
Obviously , you may need to pay for your own present , but its the thought that counts right?
'It's The Expensive Thoughts That Count' is a saying I say a lot lately and after all those ignored hints this Money Box better be filed by the time it's my Birthday.
I absolutely love the shade colour of this ceramic money bank.
You of course get that removable rubber stopper on the bottom so he can borrow a few pounds for his beers ( unfortunately Giftgivingallwrappedup.co.uk is not responsible for any excessive beer or Coffee drinking).
They do however want to encourage saving a few pounds so why not pick one up and give as a gift to help those over spenders after Christmas this year.
Better Than Sex Mug Cake
Now this is serious one , we are at the point where cake is being introduced and I have to say this is one of my favorite Pieces from the About Face Collection.
If ever you feel you need to try and win your female friend over for some reason or other, I don't know , maybe you never bought them that expensive gift for their birthday or you forgot to buy that sexy underwear set she had her eye on, then nothing says sorry than a cake in a mug.
This 'Better Than Sex Mug Cake ', is a mug with the perfect recipe for making that delightful cake to make your lady friend swoon for you .
The idea behind this mug is that you add the ingredients into the mug provided and mix together , adding it into the microwave for 10 minutes and that is all you need (other than the ingredients of course).
The front shows a picture of a delightfully looking slice of cake and on the back you get a list of how much of each ingredient is needed so you can never forget .
I really love the fact that this is hand drawn , it gives that more personalized feel to it and as well as the cup , the inside of the box lid that it comes in also gives you an idea for a detailed cake topping idea , if you need to go that extra step to impress.
This mug is 440ml and microwavable and dishwasher safe.
So for affordable ideas of gifting this year why not pop along to Giftgivingallwrappedup.co.uk .
Now after all that shopping , sit back and enjoy your Coffee.
What do you have on your list this year?
