My brother chooses the cleverest, most unique presents (his gifts inspired me to start the birthday book club, which has turned out to be one of my most popular posts) so I just wanted to do a quick post about the gifts he got me for my birthday this year.
1. Made by Hand by Lena Corwin is a cool crafting book packed with DIYs I want to try like tie-dye pillowcases, olive oil soap, screen-printed fabric and beeswax birthday candles. It's like he pre-empted my musings from this post!
2. A Household Box is like a manual for the modern home. I'm not entirely sure what it's for just yet, but as a lover of guides, boardgames and mantras, this little box is filled with quizzes to answer about your home, plus little games like charts and diagrams for rearranging your room (like a Buddhist cave or a dynamic open plan office) and spinners to assign household chores like washing-up and seeing difficult people (ha!).
3. SUCKUK's Cooking Guide Apron was perfectly timed because I'm going to be on a cooking challenge tv show! You put on the apron and when you lift up the hem towards you, it's filled with useful information like how long certain things take to cook or portion sizes...but obviously I won't be able to take it with me!
