Gift Guide: Random Assortment of U.K. Gifts

I feel bad that a lot of my gift guides include items that don't ship to the U.K. or cost a lot to ship there. I know there isn't much I can do about it, unless more online shops would have same or free worldwide shipping. At any rate, I thought I'd make a fun (random) gift guide of items that all come from U.K. shops/sites.

First Dance Didi Disc from The Gold Disc

Cost: £39.99               

Since we were talking about wedding gifts recently, I had to share this! I would love to get this for a couple I knew who really appreciated music. You can pick various colors (disc, frame, and mount) so it's suitable to your taste. Obviously, the disc includes the song and artist of the couple's first song...and you can include a dedication note at the bottom. Isn't this awesome?

I Fell Cushion from Ohh Deer

Cost: £35

I know a couple people that love France, so I think they'd really enjoy this quirky Eiffel tower cushion pillow. I think it would make a wonderful addition to any house that enjoys to have fun and doesn't take life too serious.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off Womens T-shirt from Ohh Deer

Cost: currently on sale for £5

If I could get this shirt, I totally would! I love the movie, but I also just really enjoy this quote. It's so true! I'd take advantage of this sale if you can, because this is a great deal.

Sound Asleep i-Music Pillow from PrezzyBox

Cost: £14.95

I think if I could listen to music when lying in bed, I might be able to fall asleep quicker some nights. I know sound is disruptive for some, but there are a lot of people that like noise - music, the TV, etc.

Doodle Case for iPhone 5 from

Cost: £9.95

While this would be good for anyone, I could really see teens enjoying it. They can utilize their free time by doodling on their phone case instead of getting up to gosh knows what! :)

Large Retro Sweets Hamper Box from Love Your Sweets

Cost: £24.95

Who doesn't love some good sweets? I chose to feature a box in the middle price range, but there are a variety of choices you can choose from.

Oh, my God, I need to get me an iMusic Pillow right now! What a fabulous idea! I like to listen to audiobooks in bed, but my earphones always bother me.

What everyone needs from the UK is Cadbury Crunchies.

I like the idea of the music pillow. I wonder how well it works! I could use a hamper full of sweets anytime! Some more winning gift ideas! Thanks for sharing, Lauren.

I think I laughed at that Eiffel Tower pillow for an inappropriately long time.

Candace said...

Cool idea! I, of course, would fall in love with the UK stuff since I'm in the US, lol. The iphone case is awesome!

Sara @ Forever 17 Books said...

That first dance disc is such a cute idea! And so different! I would have loved to have gotten something like that for a wedding gift.

Love the First Dance Disc! I'm not in the UK but if I was, I'd definitely get that for the wedding I'm attending next year.
