Colourful Christmas gift ideas
There’s nothing like a festive season to break all the rules about colour and really have fun with it. And on the colour theme, I’ve spotted some cracking, colourful and unusual decoration and present ideas!
Definitely a different look for the Christmas tree – Italian designers Seletti have created these ‘tongue-in-chic’ Pantone Christmas baubles. Guaranteed to raise a smile on the face of any designer in the family, these glass baubles are painted and referenced in official Pantone codes and are from www.firebox.com.
Different from the traditional, these Welsh Christmas crackers by Bodlon are going to add colour to the dinner table on Christmas day! They contain the usual snap, gift, joke and party hat and are made from re-cycled paper and card sourced from the UK.
How many bands can you think of with colour related names? A great gift for music fans, this Listen in Colour Personalised Print by Brough and Ready from www.notonthehighstreet.com is a print of music artist names by colour, (think Deep Purple, Green Day, etc. etc.). While these cute silicone Candy Store purses from www.Red5.co.uk, are wipeable, light weight and come in eight different colours!
For the kids – this colourful little Snowman Decoration kit by Paper-and-String from www.notonthehighstreet.com, contains all the materials and instructions to make your own mini felt snowman!
