With less than a week to go until Christmas day (yikes!) if you’re like us you will no doubt be desperately trying to finish your shopping without having to succumb to buying something just for the sake of it! The joy of giving is always equal to, if not greater than, the joy of receiving so finding the right thing is so important. And yet that perfect gift that not only looks great, but which is useful and unusual too can prove elusive.
Well, look no further! Our Little Books are all of the above. For any of the women in your life, from mum to little sister, from Secret Santa recipient to granny, they can be the perfect present. Below we outline the kind of people who have told us that they LOVE them and why. We hope this gives you a little inspiration – and don’t forget, when you’re buying Christmas gifts it is totally acceptable to buy something for yourself as well! Our top-selling teal Little Book of Earrings is totally on trend – go on. You know you’re worth it!
Working Women: No one wants to be late to work. And yet research we carried out at the beginning of the year showed that just under ¾ of Brits (73 per cent) are late for work up to four times a month due to time spent looking for misplaced items. And that leads to stress. Indeed, our research also showed that almost 1/3 (31 per cent) of the UK population feel anxious and depressed by a cluttered and disorganised house. Giving someone one of our Little Book of Earrings or Little Book of necklaces means they will have one less thing to worry about as they will know exactly where to find the perfect jewellery to match their outfit. Whether that gives the recipient more opportunities to get to work on time, or even a few more minutes in bed, they will thank you for it!
Married/Co-habiting Women: When in a long term relationship it can often be the little things that lead to arguments. Talking to friends it is clear that one of the annoying habits that can annoy partners the most is when we take too long to get ready! And when they are pacing around as they wait for us that can take the shine out of preparing for a big night out. Hey presto – one of our Little Books can do magic in marriage relations! We can’t help you find the right outfit, but the right accessories can be found in seconds – earrings will be in pairs and necklaces tangle-free!
Teenagers: Tweens and teens tend not to be known for their tidiness. And jewellery can be yet another thing to add to the mess or lead to tears when they go missing. Gifting one of our Little Little Book of Earrings gets young ones into good habits at an early age. Plus, anything that removes the potential for stepping on an earring post when you finally break and go into their room to tidy up has got to be a good thing. Ouch!!
Women Who Love Holidays: Who doesn’t love a holiday?! However, another finding from our research was that over a third of us (39 per cent) admit that packing for holidays takes longer and is more stressful when our homes are cluttered. One of the mantras of our founder, Jackie, is ‘a place for everything and everything in its place’! Our Little Little Books not only provide the perfect place to keep your jewellery safe every day, but they are also the perfect size to pop in your suitcase. One less task when you’re trying to get ready for the off.
Granny: Over the years most of us build up our jewellery collections, so by the time you’re in your fifties, sixties or more it’s likely you’ll have earrings and necklaces galore. Indeed, few of us throw jewellery out as even cheaper items can have sentimental value. As we own the patent on all of our Little Books for jewellery storage, they are unique gifts that will help Mums and Grannies keep their precious collections neat and safe. They can be ‘hidden’ on a bookshelf for added security and are sulphur tested which means items won’t tarnish.
Secret Santa: If that’s not enough reasons for you, prices start at under £15 which makes them affordable as Secret Santa presents – far more classy than a novelty mug!
