I like to get a head start on Christmas shopping. Which isn’t difficult seeing as you can sit a-la P.Jarm ‘n’ hot choc in hand, tap tapping away these days.
Ticking off those gifts one by one, without the threat of cold hands, rain-induced hair-frizz, and no moaning from my offspring as I drag them from shop to shop. Or worse – rushing around like a mother possessed to finish in time for school pick up.
No extortionate car park charges.
Need I go on about the merits of being a Sofa-Savvy-Shopper?
Mumas have all got this.
A few weeks ago I was approached by Personally Presented to choose something from their website and review it.
This couldn’t have been better timed.
You see, it was during my ‘list phase’ (everyone has a list phase, right?!).
Ordinarily I would have fired off a quick ‘Thanks but no thanks, I have zero time, I am training to be a journalist and am working many, many M A N Y hours for F R E E right now.’
Oh the pretty things.
Oh… the one thing I desperately have been looking for. (‘Desperately’ might be a little OTT)
Was right there.
On their website.
(A really lovely, pretty and easy-to-use website.)
Anyone out there with daughters who share my pain if one of them should acquire an item (something important like, say, a jelly bean) and the other one doesn’t?
All hell lets loose.
They must have exactly.the.same Everything.
Or “It’s not F A I R” fills the air at grenade decibels.
I can’t handle that. So it’s matchy-matchy all round for us.
Anyway, back to the jewellery boxes…
Not twee. Not childish. But, not grown-up either.
My requirements were specific, but there were plenty of options to scroll through and choose from.
Glass ones. Painted ones. All could be personalised.
The website is a little like Not On The High Street actually, but it’s a family run business which I just think is rather nice.
There was free shipping, and as soon as my order was received I had a confirmation email, and then another when the boxes were dispatched.
I had them in my hand just two days later.
You can’t argue with that.
Beautiful quality, and matching – all but their names on the top.
A big tick for my gift list, and I really cannot wait to give them their special presents in a months time.
Keepsakes for their precious things.
Personally Presented have given me a code for you to get 10% off of your orders until the end of November, so put your (slouch-sock) feet up, cuppa in hand and add to cart a few personal gifties this Christmas.
