1. Blue Q Oven Mitts

I first saw these oven mitts in a blog post and then in a bookstore. I haven't gotten a pair of my own yet, but I think they're a riot. I love this new fad with taking vintage pictures and putting a modern (and often rude) phrase over the top of them.

I started collecting these fridge magnets when I first moved out of home. They range from rude, to silly, to politically themed. They would make a good gift for a Mum who likes vintage things with a bit of a twist.

If you have a Mum who is a big Harry Potter nerd she will love this heat changing Harry Potter Mug! When the mug is cold it shows the password to the Marauder's Map "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good" and footprints showing the movement of teachers and students at Hogwarts. When the cup is filled with hot liquid, the image on the cup changes to show the full Marauder's Map. When you finish your drink the words "Mischief Managed" will appear on the bottom of the cup. When the cup cools down the password will appear again.
