Christmas is upon us and I’ve been working hard to find you the best gifts for this year – gifts that will ensure the ones I give will be the best for my friends, family and loved ones.
I have to admit that I’m not the ‘smellies and chocolate’ gift giver. I hate giving the expected things as gifts, as I want to give people pressies they will remember. Plus my sense of humour on a bad day can be described as sarcastic and on a good day, all out witty with a large dose of inappropriateness. So I tend to LOVE giving gifts with an edge, and that usually means something fun or funny with potential laughs involved. My loved ones have come to expect this!
I received a #happymail parcel from Brain Box Candy – a unique British brand who sell the most amazingly hilarious gifts, and I haven’t laughed that much in ages…well, it was more like a snigger as I indulged in their wicked sense of humour gifts. I think I laughed so much I snorted!
If you love to have a laugh, if you know people who aren’t going to take offense easily, or you have a penchant for naughty gifts, then check these guys out. You will find something for everyone in your life on their website and have a good giggle in the process.
In my #happymail parcel, it included this cup which is my perfect mug because everyone who knows me, knows that Gin is one of my favourite tipples. Sadly I can’t drink it all day (boo) – not that I’d want to, but when I’m at work, this mug is a reminder to myself and my colleagues that I’m a Gin fan (hint hint for my secret santa this year). It’s bright and fun and pretty much sums me up! They have loads of other variations on their website too.
The next thing to come out of my #happymail parcel was a selection of Sunshine & Biscuits cards – which are the cute kawaii style cards with funny messages on the front. I LOVE these because they are hilarious and very tongue-in-cheek, check out my favourites…
The cards are bright and loud and perfect for giving to my friends and family (all of whom fortunately have the same sense of humour as me!). However some are just too good to give to others, and I’m keeping them to frame and put up in my office – just for regular giggles.
I also got this fantastic cushion which is going to be taking pride of place in my office when it’s decorated over Christmas. Now, I know I’m setting myself up to look like an alcoholic (I’m not, I promise) but I love a good and funny gift and I love a glass of wine too, so this cushion is nothing if not accurate! It’s also massive and squidgy and feels really good quality as well. There’s a whole selection to choose from on the Brain Box Candy website too.
So, this was my #happymail haul and I am totally over the moon with it all. I haven’t found another brand quite a hilarious and fun as Brain Box Candy but now that I have, I will be purchasing gifts from them regularly…just because I know it’s going to mean I give the most memorable presents! These guys are a firm favourite of mine now.
