What's Your Favourite Quote?

At the moment we are thinking of some great ideas for our personalised handmade wall signs, plaques and word/wall art. What can make these entertaining is styling them around a really great quote.

We've found a few quotes that we really like:

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
 Marilyn Monroe

“Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.”
 Mark Twain

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
 Douglas Adams

“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”
 Robert A Heinlein 

“The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.”
  Ayn Rand

Can anybody suggest any more?

New Lolita Glasses

The Fabulous Gift Store is a big fan of Lolita hand painted glasses. We are awaiting our delivery, which includes some fabulous new designs, the Lolita LOVE wine glass and the Lolita Domestic Goddess wine glass. These glasses make perfect gifts and come in a lovely hat box inspired gift box.

Now we know that it's still a bit too cold to think about BBQs, but hey, it will soon be Easter and summer will then just be around the corner - but we have also ordered the range of Lolita perspex wine glasses; these are great for BBQs and parties as they do not break easily.  Obviously if you fall down on them drunk you may crack them (I've never done that!), but they won't break like glass and so are safe for parties and the like.

Great new products at The Fabulous Gift Store

Coming soon - this fabulous heart toast rack by Parlane
We've been really bad and haven't written a blog since July, but things are going to improve.

We've been doing some thinking about products, new products, and what we think our customers would like to purchase from our site; we have some great plans underway.  Not only have we sourced some fabulous new products - new suppliers will include Parlane, and we cannot wait to take delivery of their lovely little chalk board signs and heart toast racks - but we will also be introducing some bespoke and handmade products of our own to the web site.  

The trend these days is for handmade and personalised gifts.  We will, very soon, be introducing a  range of personalised gifts to purchase from our web site.  These will include bespoke and hand painted signs and wall plaques, personalised word / wall art and silver jewellery. Personalised word / wall art is always popular as a wedding, christening or engagement gift and a lovely personalised wall plaque can make an excellent house warming gift.

We promise to keep you posted and to update our blog on a regular basis, but also check out our new products as they arrive on our site at The Fabulous Gift Store - there are some great new products from Jellycat, why not check these out first?
