Choosing A Christmas Present For The Awkward (me)

The older I have got the more awkward I have got although I probably have always been awkward with a poetic licence involved , Christmas presents I like to be useful . I know it is the jot and receiving and all that but I am very practical indeed get a pair of fluffy slippers and you have the idea.

Christmas Slippers
It's SO fluffy slippers £20

I know they are mens slipper s but I really can't be doing with bows and bloody silly pom poms on my slippers ( bah slipper humbug )

There is nothing wrong when it comes to practically when it comes to Christmas I once knew a couple who gave each other a shed for Christmas then again their cat was called Colin ( which is a good practical no nonsense name for a cat )

I think awkward really is perhaps code for practical , I am practical for instance I am in need of a good umbrella , yes this one has frills on it , but oh the Parisian elegance for when I am strolling the cafe strewn streets of Paris Derby

A Pretty Umbrella
Umbrella £22.50

A fluffy robe is a good choice for me , though whilst you are buying that for me "OOOh was that a Spa day for 2 that slipped in to the basket ? , am I taking you , no I am taking my good friend Jane "

Fluffy Robe For Christmas
Champneys men's robe £25

Tea is the absolute start middle and end to my tea , I love tea , tea tea the world revolves round tea.

"Tea will never judge you
Tea understands"

Alice In Wonderland Tea Pot
Alice Tea Pot £35

Further disclosure I will of course review a Spa with no trouble ...... 


  1. Of course when you are asked to review a spa, you will need an assistant......

  2. My kind of Christmas presents - I love pyjamas and socks. And bubble bath. And chocolate. And anything glittery. Hope you get some lovely man slippers for xmas Claire xxxx

  3. I love practical presents like this! I hope you get everything you want :)

  4. What you mean you didn't use the excuse of a Christmas 'guide' to blag a load of stuff so you don't have to buy it? You totally missed a trick there.

    And on the subject of umbrellas YES YES YES. I have a great big spotty one from a few years back that I love and haven't managed to lose yet. The good thing about buying an umbrella online is that they come in a giant triangular box so you can kid people they're getting a massive Toblerone.

  5. I like your choices. tea in a robe, slippers and ermm a brolly if it rains. Perfect!!

  6. I agree with practical - can't stand just wasting money just because it is Christmas
