Still not done with your Christmas shopping? Here’s a couple of last minute ideas.
Imagine getting a wee box full of surprise gifts through the post every month – imagine no more, for that’s exactly what Lucky Dip Club is – a box of delights around a different theme through your letterbox to cheer you up.You’ve actually missed signing up for a subscription this month, you’ll need to wait til January 1st to be in with a chance, but the pick and mix boxes are pretty ace plus, you could just print off a voucher for a subscription and set your alarm for Jan 1.
My good friend Sean’s beautiful and talented lady pal Sarah Amy Fishlock is the brains behind Goose Flesh – her photographic work is really rather excellent. You might be pushing it a bit to buy online, but I have it on good authority that if you’re in Glasgow, you can pick up a copy at Street Level Photoworks.
Another of my very talented colleagues at my day job, Doug wrote this e-book. Download it! Now!
I haven’t actually been in here yet, but it looks like a great last-minute gift stop if you’re in the Glasgow area – pop in to Hippo Beers and pick up half a dozen fancy beers for the boozehound in your life. Consumable gifts are the best.
Last but by no means least, Penny Black on Great Western Road in Glasgow is a perfect place to pick up cards and gifts if you’re in the West End. Don’t worry, it’s actually open and finished now, since this photo was taken! It’s the new venture by my very best friend Jo and her husband Ryan, and their extended family – a real team effort!
My role has mostly been moral support, cheesecake delivery and cutter-outer of price tags, but it’s been a real blast helping them create what is a multi-functional operation – a destination post office, with added specialty drinks cafe and card/gift shop. It is so well designed and put together, that’s it’s really just an awesome space to spend time in and I love it and you should all go there now, and after Christmas – support a true community business who really care about what they are doing and making a difference to their customers’ lives. I’m so proud of what they’ve achieved so far, and thankful they’ve let me be part of the journey so far – can’t wait to see what 2015 brings!
