I recently came across a toy/gadget website that supplies things for children of all ages, you can select from lots of different categories or select by the age of the recipient.
I ordered a few bits, as gifts and also for myself and was really impressed at how easy the website is to navigate and also at how quickly the order arrived.
Wicked Uncle is more than just a toy shop. We’re a present finding service. Whether you know the recipient really well, or they are just a random child from your kid’s class at school, the many ways you can search our site means that the perfect gift is just a few clicks away. We personally test out every product before we stock it; we build the kits, play the games, bake the rainbow cakes, blow the giant bubbles, and test drive the remote-control spiders! We pride ourselves on our collection of fun, interesting and unusual toys, books and games; a lot of our stock you just won’t find elsewhere.

You can choose from our great selection of colourful gift wrap, and even select a card design to be handwritten by the Wicked Uncle Elves for that personal touch. Even more cleverly, if you add the occasion to your reminders, we can send you a birthday reminder each year with a selection of age-appropriate gifts to choose from, so you need never miss a birthday again.” – www.wickeduncle.co.uk

The things I ordered were:

Hopping Chocolate Frogs – with Popping Candy – £4.95

These would be great for kids or adults, I personally love chocolate with popping candy! This would be a great gift for any chocolate lover.

Shamballa FIRE Jewellery – Make & Design – £10.95

This set was chosen as a gift. I know these bracelets are very popular and can be quite expensive to buy, so this set worked out really cheap as you can make 5 different products with it! I love the idea of being able to create your own jewellery. This would be suitable for both older children and adults.

Harmonica Set – £10.95

This I chose for my husband. He doesn’t play any instruments but for some reason wanted to learn the harmonica! He is really please with it and it is really good quality at a great price.

Think Outside the Box – Solve The Puzzle! – £5.95

This is actually a gift I chose to give to my grandad for his birthday. Even though it is meant for children I know he will really appreciate it as he loves games a puzzles. I think it is a great price and I think that Wicked Uncle really do cater for everyone, at any age.

Strawberry Cheesecake Popcorn – £3.95

Another item I just had to try! This tastes amazing and I had never heard of this flavour before. It is one of those “novelty flavours” that you can’t usually buy in the supermarket. this would be great for any popcorn lover.

They really do have a wide variety of products for anyone at any age so do check them out 🙂

It is a great idea that they can send you reminders for peoples birthdays and also send you appropriate gift suggestions.

With Mother’s Day approaching, it can be difficult to decide what to buy. For me I have to decide on presents for my mum, my step mum, my mother in law and my grandma. It can get difficult trying to pick what to buy everyone. I came across GiftsOnline4U that offer a great range of personalised presents. You can pick anything from watches, vases, wine bottles to key rings or rolling pins and have them personalised with a name or a message.

I picked the following two gifts, they can be given seperately or can be given together as they compliment each other well.

I Love My Mum Personalised Champagne Flute

For £18.99 I think this is a really great price, considering you can pick up to three lines of engraving and it looks really posh and sophisticated. It already comes with the I (heart) My Mum message on, you then can add whatever you want underneath. You can also choose to add a gift bag with ribbon and a tag for £4.99 and they have several designs you can pick from.

I think this would be a great gift for anyone that enjoys prosecco or champagne and it is something they can cherish and keep on display if they wanted. The quality of the engraving is amazing, considering how quickly it turned up after my order was placed. It was here in only a few days.

They also have a great range of Personalised Champagne Flutes for other occasions and with different designs on. It would be great as a birthday present or even as a Father’s Day gift, June will be approaching before you know it!

Personalised Mothers Day Prosecco

This is £27.99 so you may decide to just buy this, not with the flute, and on its own it is still a pretty amazing gift. Similar to the champagne flute, you can select up to three lines to add a personal message. The message its self is not engraved on this but instead is printed on a beautiful label on the front of the bottle. It then also says underneath your message “Happy Mother’s Day”.

You can also pay extra for a champagne box or bag, the prices vary depending what you go for. There is also the option to add a greetings card. They also have other great Personalised Prosecco products, again, it is worth looking at these for other occasions you may need to buy for.

I think the website is great in my opinion, if you have someone to buy for that doesn’t drink alcohol there are plenty of other personalised items you can pick from! I am really impressed with the quality of the products I received as well as how quick my order arrived. I will definately keep this site in mind for upcoming birthdays and also Father’s Day gifts!

What do you think about personalised presents? Are they something you would buy or you would like to receive?

HOMEWARE

Amphora Aromatics – Lavender oil candle

£9.50

Lavender is one of my favourite scents and this candle smells so so good. It burns for 40 hours which is ages if you only light it an our so a day 🙂 I like to light a candle for half an hour – an hour before going up to bed to make the bedroom smell nice and as this is lavender it can help with drifting off to sleep easier!

Amphora Aromatics – Mandarin Lime and Basil reed diffuser

£13.50

Another great product is this reed diffusers. These are great to slowly let a scent into a room. I like to have one in our living room as that’s the first room you walk into. This one is great as it is not too overpowering but it still makes the room smell great. I think ti is a reasonable price too.

Aequill – Juniper Berry & Cedarwood scented candle

Regular £24

Travel £14.50

Another great candle is this one by Aequill. I have been burning this one of an evening in front of the fire and it smells so good and I feel so cosy with this scent and the fire on. You only have to burn it for a short amount of time and the room/house smells so good. I prefer high quality candles that you don’t need to burn for long.

Little Hungarian hearts – embroidered decoration

£4

This cute little heart is a great decoration for Christmas, or any other time of the year if you like hearts! You can pick from various designs and they are all handmade. I can’t wait to get my tree up so I can put this on it!

*********************************************

GAMES

Sabre Wolf Games –Jane Austen’s matchmaker

£19.99

This game will be great to play over Christmas when all the family are together.  It is based on Jane Austin characters and you have to play matchmaker to find them a suitable partner.
