Thought I’d get my two-penneth in for a last minute gift guide to go alongside the hundreds of other gift guides out there at the moment. I thought I’d step away from the regular suggestions of candles and bubble bath and other luxurious gifts and go for something a bit different…so here’s my quirky gift guide for the weirdo in your life…
Actually it’s 2 bags of cement. I love the idea of charity gifts. They’re so much better than the crappy gift sets that we all inevitably get from someone. I can buy my own shower gel from Tesco while I’m doing my big shop so let’s get something that’s really going to help someone out instead. These bags of cement from WaterAid will help to build a toilet and all for the reasonable sum of £10. This also makes a perfect last minute gift as it can be delivered by email.
Everyone has one of those boring, plain wooden bird boxes. Why not buck the trend with an unconventional bird house? It’s bound to be more fun for the birds and you can sit and daydream that they’re going in there and sitting down for a meal with their family. There’s also a casino-themed one sponsored by JackpotCity’s UK Casino* if that floats your boat.
Hasn’t everyone always wanted one of these? This is seriously my dream Christmas present. It’s just too awesome for words. Possibly a bit pricey though….
One year my grandad got me a little blue cat head statue for my birthday. It’s possibly my favourite ever present. The rest of my family thought it was really weird that I was so happy with it but it makes me smile every time I see it and that’s how I feel about this monkey picture. Try and look at it without cracking a smile.

Why wouldn’t you want a giant inflatable dinosaur? The perfect gift for anyone. Kids would love it, grandparents would love it, my mum would think I’m a total nut job. If you’re not digging the Brachiosaurus then you can grab a T-Rex, a velociraptor, a triceratops or a stegosaurus.
