  1. Here's a lovely gift idea if you're looking for a wedding present or anniversary present for a happy couple...a beautiful momento of their day

    Engraved Set Of Two Swarovski® Crystal Champagne Flutes - Swirls
    Engraved Set Of Two Swarovski® Crystal Champagne Flutes - Swirls

    £39.99 from Getting Personal

    They are presented in a beautifully branded box.  You can personalise the flutes with a message in up to 54 characters and use Getting Personal's innovative preview function to see how your personalisation will look.  They are made of crystal and you should hand wash them only.   The bottle of champagne doesn't come with them but you could always treat them to a bottle to go with the flutes. 

    There are other personalised gifts which may suit too at Getting Personal - a pair of whisky tumblers and wine glasses.

  2. The world-famous Wimbledon tennis tournament starts on Monday 2nd July this year :-)

    It really is an incredible tournament, and the stamina and strength of the tennis players is quite something.   Day after day the matches go on - weather permitting - strawberries are consumed, Pimms are downed, and everyone has their own player they are supporting.

    Why not treat yourself and a loved one to a Wimbledon Tour for Two?

    £50 from Virgin Experience Days

    Virgin Experience Days are giving you the chance to tour around the Centre Court as part of a small group, the picnic terraces and Water Gardens with their view of London.

    And the great thing about tours like this is that you can go to areas that are usually out-of-bounds to the public, including the Press Interview Room and the Millennium Building. 

    Plus you can explore the hsitory of the sport in the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Musum which hosts an array of tennis memorabilia, a 200 degree cinema and special effects which create a "ghost" of John McEnroe.

  3. Here are a couple of gifts garden loving Dads can enjoy for Father's Day and thereafter - and a couple come with a personalised touch!

    Tree2mydoor.com are to trees as florists are to flowers.  Tree2mydoor.com send trees in the post, just as florists send flowers. 

    So Tree2mydoor.com (who I've used before and they are really good) have these personalised gifts which may be just the thing for Dads who love gardening and gardens...

    There's a Personalised Head Gardener Polo Shirt - you can add your dad's name (up to 15 characters) and there are several sizes to choose from...

    And there are also a Personalised Garden Hand Tools Set for £23.50 with a hand trowel and a hand fork.  You can have up to 3 initials engraved on the handle of each of these and I think they would make a lovely lasting gift for gardeners.   They're certainly different!

    I've used Bunches.co.uk  several times before and they've given me great service.  I've ordered online and when I've had to get help on the phone, they've been really helpful :-)  


  5. I do love Emma Bridgewater's range of mugs - there's something for everyone.  I bought my mother one of the Wallflower mugs for a present and it looks really pretty - she puts flowers in them and puts them on a sideboard to enjoy.

    So there's good news if you're an Emma Bridgewater fan of her mugs.  There's a 2 half pint mug for £30 offer on at the moment.  And it includes boxed pairs!  

    Two half pint mugs for £30 from Emma Bridgewater!

    The offer ends midnight on Monday 26 March 2018 and of course there are a number of T&Cs** - but nonetheless this is a great offer.
