It’s that time of year again, with promises of festive cheer and goodwill for all mankind. Yes, Christmas is almost here; personally my favourite time of year, though I know that not all of you will agree ;). But whether you love it or hate it, it’s almost Christmas and time to start looking for Christmas gifts for friends and relatives. Now, I don’t know if you’re like me in this respect, but I like getting something unique for the people who are special to me. Yes, I know you can always pop down to your local High Street and pick something up, but if you’re after something unique then trawling market stands and craft fairs may be the way to go.
There is an easier way to find a unique gift though. Enter NotOnTheHighStreet.com, a website dedicated to bringing you the best and brightest ideas from dedicated retailers who are dedicated to turning up with some of the most spectacular and unique products around. They work with small independent retailers around the country who provide them with a host of unique products. I had a look at their Christmas Gifts section to see if I can get any ideas that might work for me.
First of all, what about the babies? Well, I’m sure they would love this stripy crocheted bunny:
We’d obviously have to get two of them, the twins have only just turned one and they’re not very good at sharing yet 😉
Then there’s Arthur. I must say I did spend some time perusing the site, until I finally came across world jigsaw puzzle:
Here’s into his countries and continents at the moment and having a puzzle to build and complete will help reinforce what he’s learning.
And what would I get Camille? Well, there’s a huge choice of things that would be just great for her, but the one I loved was this silver starfish charm bracelet:
There are loads of choices and I’ll certainly be back to look at their range of products. Maybe as we get closer to Christmas …
