Finding The Perfect Gift…

Finding The Perfect Gift…

I love buying family and friends presents, taking the time to listen for anything that they might want leading up their birthday or Christmas. Browsing the internet for that perfect gift, one that they will love and know that some thought has gone into it.

But then it’s not always easy to know what to buy people. We are a generation that tend to either buy when we want it or save up to buy it. We don’t wait for birthdays and Christmas anymore. So, when they come around it can be tricky.

I think I’m easy to buy for, but family tell me I’m not. Last year I wrote a blog post with my birthday wish list on and a couple of wonderful people actually brought me things from it, which I loved.

With my birthday fast approaching it’s time to get thinking about what I would like, just to make sure my husband doesn’t go off on his own back buying me random presents.

Gifts Online 4 U got in touch and asked me what birthday gift I would love. Well this was an exciting email to received and having not been on their site before I couldn’t wait to see what they offered. Straight away I found the site easy to use, it has different categories for you to narrow down your search. From the occasion to who it is you are buying for.

There was so much I loved and my wish list was filling up fast, but thinking about my new house and my lifestyle. I was really drawn to items for the home. We now have a bigger kitchen than we did before and it means I have more storage and can get a few items that I have drooled over before.

After spending far too long browsing the site I decide on this gorgeous cake stand. We love to host our family for birthdays and other occasions and cake is always involved. It would be lovely to have somewhere nice to display the cakes on.

You can add a personalised message to the top level stand, which adds a nice detail to it…

The slate stands really show of the cakes well, as it looks great but doesn’t blend in with the cakes which some cake stands can do. You can show your cakes of at their best, whilst using a gorgeous cake stand. There is also plenty of room to fit them all on and it doesn’t look crowded.

Whilst browsing Gifts Online 4 U, I noticed they also did other personalised slate gifts and I now have my eye on the slate Lazy Susan. This would compliment my cake stand perfectly. I could use it for more cakes, because lets be honest you can’t have too many cakes. But also for so much more, this would be a prefect addition to my collection.

Don’t worry friends and family there are still plenty of lovely gifts that I would love for my birthday, I might even do another birthday wish list just to help you out because I’m kind like that.

Disclosure: I was kindly sent the cake stand as a birthday gift and I was compensated for my time.

    Oh I love that cake stand! I will have a look at the website nearer to my birthday because I love slate, it’s great to have household items in natural material.

    Oh I love this. My Mum has a cake stand and every time I see it I always think that I must buy one. I love the idea that you can also personalise it. Although my message would be ‘hands off!’

    I have a slate cake stand just like this, but it doesn’t have the personalisation. I think thats a really lovely touch!

    I love natural materials and slate always looks classy. I had never seen a slate cake stand before though. It’s a lovely touch that you can add a personalised message. We have a lazy Susan on our outside table it’s so useful. Have a lovely Birthday, good idea on the gift list guide. Mines next month too … xx
