I have to say I am pretty lucky as John has really good taste when it comes to clothes, books and music and I am very rarely am I disappointed in anyway but that doesn't extended to everyone. I have always been brought up to be grateful for every and any gift received because at the end of the day it's a wonderful thing to be given something by someone else no matter how large, small or useful it is although some have in the past left me scratching my head.
I think some of the most perplexing Gift Crimes I have been on the receiving end of are when I was given a very pretty dress which in all regards was lovely except it was a size 16 and I am a size 8 and even with bringing out the sewing machine there was no way to get it to fit my shape. Other small items are bright pink socks, used pencils and a floral recipe book stand which lets just say was not my style.
The thing is we are all pretty busy people and finding cool and unique gifts for both children and adults can be time consuming so what would be better than a well curated website of the most stylish and unique gifts on the market, don't know about you but that sounds like a fantastic idea to me. A place that is time saving but will guarantee you to not commit any future gift crimes and also be known as the cool creative mom in the school yard. Well I would like to introduce you to Gift Wink, a website set up by mums for mums who want to nail the next birthday party they attend.
It's so easy to use and you can setup a birthday calendar and reminders so you don't forget those all important dates as well as wish lists which you simply add your favourite presents to if you want to reference back to them at a later point. I have put together a little wishlist for my youngest 2nd birthday next year as well as gift ideas for my eldest this coming Christmas but you can also curate and shop for the early teens, late teens and adults in your life.
