I do love a useful present. One of my favourite birthday gifts this year was a huge wheelbarrow. I love it because it’s a massive time-saver. It holds about four times that of a regular sized barrow and I can also put the children in it if I need to as well.
If you are starting to think about Christmas gifts, here are a few ‘useful’ gifts for you to consider:
Society Socks are a small sock subscription company with a social cause. For every pair of socks they sell, a pair is donated to charity. Every one needs socks don’t they? Socks are always a useful gift.
I mean, what better feel good gift to buy for someone right?
I absolutely love the bright colours on offer. You never know which socks you are going to get, so it’s always a surprise. I love the idea of giving a subscription of these as a gift.
If you know someone who embraces funky socks and would like the fact that this has a social cause, then this could be the gift you are looking for!
Storage to save parents’ sanity

Storage cubes are another great gift. Kids love them because they can feature their favourite colour or character and parents love them because they are great for keeping on top of the chaos that children create, which can be heightened over the festive season.
A gift for a new parent
Do you know someone who has just had a baby? Help them get to grips with parenthood by gifting them a baby carrier. The Lictin Baby Carrier Sling for a newborn is a great idea for any new parent – allowing them to be ‘hands free’ this Christmas but still close to their baby. You can get a discount on this at the moment using code C79QXAT9.
You could also make up a hamper of useful things that you found helpful when you were first a parent, these are always well received by new parents.
Edible gifts are by nature ‘useful’. Why not buy things can people can enjoy either over the festive season or beyond? You could buy ready’made hampers, as lots of stores sell these, or, if you have time make one up yourself.
Making one yourself allows you to create something exactly how the recipient would like it. If you’ve ever had a hamper bought for you before, you’ll know that there are always a couple of random bits and bobs in them that no one seems to like.
