I feel like I buy people the same kind of gift every Christmas. So last year I looked at gift experiences (spa days etc), which went down well.

This year I have found a really great idea in the form of portraits - but not the 'stiff' boring kind. These are drawings which are colourful and a bit different. Look up 'Flock Fashion Portraits' on ebay (and on Facebook). They're fab! It's a gift that would last a lifetime and look amazing in a nice frame.

My Nan absolutely loves her dog, so I'm thinking of getting one done of him. Plus I have a few friends with kids.Prices start at 20 (around $35???)which for a portrait (particularly this unique) is an absolute BARGAIN! Other artists I have looked up charge anywhere between 100 to 2000!
