Your one-stop shop for Valentine's Day!
The range is enormous and includes quality products from around the world. And, I have to say, Mr Gift is one of the best websites I've come across. It's incredibly neat and easy to navigate. You can sort by category or price (or even by wedding anniversary!) and there is helpful commentary, reviews and recommendations for each product. It's a personal touch that you rarely find with online shopping nowadays.
There are hundreds of gift ideas on the website but here are my top 5 to give you a bit of a taster:
Vinyl records have come right back in (or, depending on who you ask, they never left). And let's face it, record covers are art. It makes sense to put them on display. This nifty frame lets your significant other display their favourite record with the simple push of a button. And, even better, they can change it up with just a simple push of a button. This one is perfect for the music lover or design enthusiast. Or the crazy/committed collector speaking as someone who has a 1956 soundtrack of a Bing Crosby film featured in my kitchen (and trust me, I've had comments about it!).
Chuck in a bag of potting mix and a couple of seedlings and this pair of Garden Grow Bags is the perfect gift for the wannabe gardener in your life. These hessian bags are far more agile and attractive than your traditional garden pots. And they're low maintenance and easy to move, which means they're extra perfect for the balcony gardener or renter.
There's one word to describe this brown leather laptop case or document holder: classic.
Perfect for the businessman or traveller in your life, this sleek case blends the practical with the optical. It's the most stylish way of protecting a laptop from scratches that I've ever seen and is sure to be a conversation starter. The case is available in two smaller sizes (14" and 13") and, between you and me, is actually on sale. This one is down to $80 at the moment.
Mr Gift says every household needs one good cheese board. I say this Cheeseporn Cheese Board is it. Made from acacia wood, with a leather hook and two embedded cheese knives, this is for the entertainer in your life. It's the perfect centrepiece for your table and it's bound to see plenty of use at dinner parties and Sunday sessions during this beautiful summer of ours. And with the footy returning to our TV screens in the next month, think about all the cheese platters you'll need to see yourself through Friday night footy in 2019!
This is particularly cool. This microfibre towel is soft, super absorbent, lightweight and quick-drying and is the perfect gift for the traveller, camper, beach bum or gym junkie in your life. And, even better, it's made in Australia by an Australian company which features uniquely Australian designs like the MCG for the Victorian in your life or a XXXX Gold for the Queenslander. These towels are so cool you may not even mind if your partner just flung them on to the floor after use… There is a smaller.
So head to the website to check out these products and the entire Mr Gift range. To take advantage of Mr Gift's generous special, enter WEEKEND in the Discount Code field when you place your order.
