£25 and under gifts
I’m not allowed to buy things from a cheese, meat or fish counter, or fudge. An agreed rule between Edd and I – reason being I’m totally unable to gauge size. Which has many problems, the most expensive of which is when buying something visually. I can see the price per whatever weight it may be. I just can’t visualise what that equates to, size wise. And I’m too polite to not take the piece cut. I just gulp, pay seven times more than I expected and wait for Edd to giggle at my continued ineptitude. Hence the self-imposed abstinence.
But sometimes we have a fixed price in mind for what we want to pay. Especially when it comes to gifts. There can be different amounts you like to spend for different people for whom you need to buy a gift for. Which is why, when we go to events we’ll often give people ideas around price brackets – so they can the perfect gift, in and around the amount of money they want to spend.
So – here’s our £25 and under price guide. No weighing required.
- Paint tin opener – something you don’t need, but is so brilliantly made it will forever make the recipient smile (and appreciate blacksmith mastery)
- Sneeboer garden tool sharpener – the gift of sharp tools forever, what’s not brilliant about this?
- Opinel DIY knife – if they have everything else in their toolbox, guaranteed they won’t have this and they’ll like it.
- Workshop dustpan and brush set – sounds dull, looks glorious, will last a lifetime and the patina over time will be totally personal.
- Elementary Screwdriver No. 2 – if Carlsberg made screwdrivers…one of our best-selling gifts
- Painted hammer – of course they have a hammer, but not one personalised to your colour choice
- Deejo penknife – they may have other pen knives, but not one as small, light and frankly brilliant as this.
- Hori Hori – the gardening tool of the moment, they will thank you for this – no doubt at all
- Opinel Penknife in a pouch – because sometimes people really like to receive a gift set – and this is a good one.
