    Stocking stuffers

    We're giving everyone a personalised ornament made from playdough, plus a candy item special to each person. My husband is getting a tree ornament, because he's into the environment, and some Turkish Delight, because that's a candy he enjoys.
    Cheers,
    Sarah

    Hi Sarah and welcome!

    Personalized, handmade ornaments are great gifts to give! presents I've never had Turkish Delight, and have only heard of it in C.S. Lewis' The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

    Turkish Delight is like no other candy I know of. I personally think it's gross, but he really likes it. There's a description of it at wikipedia, but I can't post links yet, so if you want to see it, you'll have to go to the wikipedia site. Sorry for the inconvenience!
    Cheers,

    I love the purse hooks and I cant live without one because I hate putting my handbags on the yucky floor, yikes! If I dont have an extra chair or place to put my bags in a restaurant or cafe, I always use a purse hanger to hold my bag and they are absolutely fantastic!

    I bought my handbag hooks from PHANGER and they are great! Its practical and stylish at the same time and it folds flat which can be stored away easily in a cosmetic bag or zipper compartment. I always carry it now and love, love, love this brilliant accessory! PHANGER has the cutest range of patterns I have seen and great price too!! Best gadget for all ladies and would make a fantastic gift item! If anyone wants to check it out, the website is phanger.com

    Hope this helps!
