I spent my childhood giving mundane gifts like socks, ties, chocolates and mugs to my grandparents and only now do I realise how boring that must have been for them!
With this in mind, I've tried to find more creative, interesting gifts that Chunk can give to his Nanny in particular as she is his most special person!
Whenever we visit a small village my mum will hunt down a traditional sweet shop and get her fix of rosey apples, humbugs and bon bons, so I've managed to find an online company who can deliver these classics straight to your door!
|Bah Humbugs Retro Hamper and Sweet Buckets are fab!|
Bah Humbugs is an independent sweet shop in Yorkshire and they've been running for ten years. They stock more than 400 sweets, including both classic and modern day sweets. I tried the Retro Hamper which had LOADS of great sweets, and my favourite were Fruit Salads and Acid Candy, and the boys adored the popping candy and Curly Wurly!
Bah Humbugs sell the sweets separately, or they also offer sweet buckets, jars and hampers. (I'm giving away a sweet bucket here by the way!).
These are the perfect stocking fillers for both hard to buy grandparents (find their childhood faves to make it extra special) and children (what child doesn't like sweets and chocolate?!).
Glam Gardening Equipment
My mother is a bit of a gardener, so I want to pimp up her tools and gardening wear this year!
Briers have a Historic Royal Palaces range which is both good quality and fashionable in my humble, non-gardener experience.
|Some of the Briers' Historic Royal Palaces Range|
This Historic Royal Palaces range was inspired by all the English royal palaces such as Kensington Palace and Kew Palace. There are three designs which are each featured on wellington boots, rubber clogs, gardening gloves, kneelers and even cotton bags to carry your tools in.
They can be bought from DIY stores such as B&Q and Wilkinsons and also some garden centres and fashion outlets.
Food and Accessories
I've reviewed a couple of these Degustabox boxes over the last few months and I continue to be impressed with them, and what's better is that they are currently selling them for half price, so a just over £6 you are getting a huge box of goodies to enjoy with your family.
This month's included some gorgeous Brioche buns and bread, Blue Dragon sauces, Special K crisps and much more..
As well as being half price, my readers can also get a great discount using this code: 1BVOZ
|Easy Lock, What If? Puzzle and Ozeri Pepper Mill|
The Ozeri Savore Electric Pepper Mill and Grinder is a rather cute, sleek grinder that would look good on anybody's kitchen side. It has a rather clever mechanism that helps it to season food evenly and grinds just by you pressing a button...simple!
Easy Locks are lightweight, easy to use, strong temporary door locks and I'm giving one away!
To be in with a chance to win one of these locks in the colour pink, head to my competition page here.
Fancy a more elegant gift? How about a set of lights that you can choose the colours for to match their home?
See my review of Cable and Cotton lights here.
This festive puzzle by Ravensburger has a lot of detail so it will take you a little while to complete unless you are a pro!
