What can I say, it is finally beginning to feel like Christmas, and unlike most that are quite organised, when it comes to buying of the pressies (and I should take a leaf out of their books really) I find myself just beginning to buy my Christmas gifts. If you find yourself in the same boat, fear not, we still have about 5 days to get our act together. And what with next day delivery, I am pretty confident, I’ll have all my gifts under the Christmas tree by the 24th!
In this spirit, I thought I’d share gifts ideas that you can still buy, wouldn’t break the bank account, and you can even pop along to some of the shops to collect, if you are the touchy feely type. I have put together a collection of quirky, fun, and unassuming gift ideas, stocking fillers, and unconventional Christmas gifts.

More than your average ruler, this is a great gift for a recipient who loves to measure everything, appreciates craftsmanship, or wants to put some fun into DIY .The fold-able wooden ruler from Arket, is beautifully designed, practical and the recipient will just love folding, unfolding and creating different patterns with this ruler.
The Everyone type of gift
This is the ultimate electric toothbrush, as far as commercial toothbrushes go (in my humble opinion). Suitable for anyone, it comes in children and adult sizes. It only needs to be charged ONCE a year, and gives the same effect you will get from going to a hygienist! The childrens version, has a cute neon light up ‘sad face or happy face, telling the parent if a child has brushed their teeth or is just bluffing. This is the most expensive gift suggestion, but I think, anyone will be please to receive this, – also think of all the toothbrushes you are saving from the landfills.
