As I always say, giving a gift isn't that hard if you pay attention. But I noticed, reviewing past posts, that I tend toward the beautiful and luxurious, even if it's a bar of soap.
I could lighten up. I don't intend to give cheap gag gifts—an egregious waste of money—but a gift with wit, to order forthwith.
One of my sons got this last year from his MIL and I thought it was a hoot: Kilt bath towel, $26 from fruugo. Available in various tartans in case you have a bunch of laddies in your loo.
For your girls, a small makeup bag, price about $8 from Etsy seller LittleRedPressLondon.
Totes: useful for the market, books, and storage. "All that glitters is not gold", in Welsh, on a black canvas tote. About $14 (plus shipping) from PerisandCorr.
For a significant gift, upgrade to the jaunty Strathtay messenger bag in red canvas and Harris Tweed tartan, from Dunmore Scotland, about $195.
A tea cosy with a hedgehog peaking over the edge: who can resist? Handmade by Etsy seller CrystalMoonCat, about $51. Check her site to see more delightful critters.
This particular plate (price, £25) is sold out, though you can contact Wolf and Badger for orders or choose other JimBob Art pieces.
Can't resist throwing in one special piece. Isn't "Hooray!" a quintessential English expression? 24k gold plate disk necklace with 1mm diamond (also available in silver), £180 from Alex Monroe.
London jeweler Alex Monroe's pieces have long combined whimsy with grace; see more of his work here. Don't miss the "Love Actually" locket, a fetching gift for a young-adult daughter or a fan of one of my favourite-ever seasonal movies.
