You still have a few days of Pre-Christmas post to ensure you order and receive gifts in time for Christmas but what to buy? Are you having that feeling of panic that floods us all at some point? Has your Mum bought herself the book you had on order for her present? Did your brother decided he no longer likes wine and you had a vineyard tour planned? Relax – help is here! Take a look below for some last minute unique gift inspiration…
For those who love Bake Off! We all have friends who can’t get enough of baking and for those who love to experiment in the kitchen buy them this elegant, white porcelain three tier cake stand. It is a thoughtful gift and will be used over and over again.
For the host who has everything – turning up on Christmas Day with chocolate and wine is a little like bringing coals to Newcastle so the old expression goes so think of something original. Why not order this ‘Keep Calm and Drink Wine’ sign, after all it is probably appropriate!
Add a little fun to your drinks cabinet – cocktail shakers are great for any party so go one step further and buy this silver bell shaped cocktail shaker. Fantastic fun – especially for a drinks connoisseur; a classic looking ornament with a twist. Made of stainless steel, this will never tarnish.
Dog lovers will love this! – At Vintage Vibe we have a selection of really gorgeous, fun dog print cushions. My favourites are ‘Dogs in a Vintage Red Car’ and the ‘Gentry West Highland white Terrier Dog‘. A set is fun and if you have a dog lover in your life its a safe bet present.
Something stylish for the desk – this is a great idea for the home desk. A silver plated pen holder that adds a touch of style to the desk or alternatively it can be used as a cigar holder! Christmas time is an event where the cigars get wheeled out and puffed furiously. If rotten old cigars are going to be smoked then why not ask them to do it in style?
For the travelers out there – This is a gorgeous present and something that will stay with them through life – no matter where their nomadic tendencies take them! This leather globe with embossed detail will stand the test of time and remind them of you every time they are missing home.
Don’t panic! Take 5 minutes to browse Vintage Vibe’s website and find a whole world of gifts that could solve your last minute present nightmare!
