Ok, so the secret of unusual gift ideas? Find something awesome that you don’t usually see. It doesn’t have to mean that you go off to the Hindu Kush and come back with a hand woven mat or anything that dramatic and it doesn’t even have to mean that you get something no one else has got.
So, you could get a bottle of wine, for example, just like everyone else. But you get one that has a personalised label on, with his and her names on it. That’s a great start for uncommon gift ideas – enjoyable, affordable and completely different!
Staying on the wine theme, it’s a celebration after all – you could get some funky glasses or an unusual bottle. The bottle is used to decant wine with meals, so there’s always a centrepiece full of originality and sparkle.

So, finding personalised gifts for her is not always easy. Especially, if she already has everything she wants.
But then, since when was a gift, something you wanted already? The whole point of gifts, surely, is that they are things you didn’t know you had always wanted until they are given to you.
I’ll let you into a secret, which applies to personalised gifts, as much as, it does to gifts for anyone. The real purpose of presents is to show evidence that you, the giver, know the recipient well enough to get them something that will really delight them.
So, when you look for a personalised gift for her, my top tip is very simple, really. Start by thinking about the person you are buying the gift for. Then go looking for an assortment of things you have already chosen in your head. That way, you’ll always get something perfect.Read more...
I was at my nan’s house the other day – and the first thing I noticed, as I always do after the lady herself of course – was how many pictures she has on display. And you can see all of them – me when I was two, my brother’s graduation ceremony, the lot. So I got thinking about photo display ideas. How to show off your photos to best effect.
I came to the conclusion there were two basic ways to go. On the one hand you could do what my nan does – which is to have a range of different sized photo frames, biggest at the back, and put them on a little table. As photo display ideas go it’s a classic – three dimensional, so you’re always finding new images.
And the other idea? Collages, of course. Recreate that most American of university traditions and get all your shots in one space!Read more...
It isn’t easy is it. Birthday ideas for her I mean. See every year I try to make her birthday something truly special – forget about Valentine’s and all that corporate nonsense, this is the day she was born. So I theme my presents and outings, or I get up some big secret and give her hints about it for months beforehand.
That’s loads of fun actually. Throwing her off the scent. Whatever your birthday ideas for her, sow a few false trails and then she’ll be amazed at what you really did get her!
Oh and the idea itself? Could be as simple as a picnic. In your lounge. Seriously. Romance is what matters here – so if her birthday’s going to be rainy, do a full champagne and strawberries picnic at home – she’ll love it.
For more birthday ideas for her, check back for my next post!
