Gift Company Cat Lover Cushion Review – Ideal Gift

Gift Company “Cat Lover Cushion” Review – An Ideal Gift

Once again I am lucky enough to be working with Gift Company this Autumn to bring you a selection of items throughout November. All of these items would all make excellent gifts for people this Christmas. Check out my “Gifts” section of my blog for more examples of reviewed products.

Gift Company is a wonderful UK based and family run company that prides itself on providing unique and quality giftwarehomeware and furniture, to the people of the United Kingdom.

They also have a huge range of Christmas related stock in right now, both in stores and on their website. But that is not all they do, and if you haven’t heard of them before today I think you should check out their information at the end of this review…

Now on to the product itself, the Cat Lovers Cushion. (See image below).

Dimensions and Product Information

Item Description: A Cream Cushion with Red and Black Writing and a Black Cat.

Item Dimensions: Length 34cm, Width 21cm, Depth 7cm.

Item Details: This small yet sweet cushion is an ideal gift for anyone who loves Cats. It has some nice features including an accurately proportioned cat which is sitting on the right hand side of the cushion grooming itself. The embroidered writing consists of the phrase “A CAT LOVER sits here with their purrfect match”. The cushion is an overall cream colour so ideal for any room, with an additional trim to it which is red with white polka dots. It also boasts a sweet heart above the cat, made from the same polka dot material and featuring a red heart button in the centre.

Item Price: £7.50 (RRP £15.00).

Item Delivery: The item was delivered sealed in cellophane so you were certain it was brand new.

What Makes This A Great Gift

✩ An attractive clever design which is ideal for anyone who likes cats or has a cat/s.
It is a versatile base colour so great to fit in with the decor in most rooms.
Well made and well designed to incorporate humor in the wording.
✩ It is soft and nice to lean on or to cuddle up to and relax.
✩ This cushion would make an ideal gift for a cat lover.

Some Things To Be Aware Of 

✩ This cushion states on the tags that the inner filling is tested and meets the 1988 safety regulations to be match and cigarette resistant, however the outer cover is not. This item could perhaps cause a fire hazard to a smoking household and I would therefore advise against its purchase if the people were regular smokers in their homes.

No where on either of the labels does it say that the cushion can be washed, I am presuming then that it cannot be put in the washing machine or hand washed and is a sponge clean only item. I would advise not giving this item to a small child due to the button that could be pulled off.

Overall Review Scores Elaborated

I was very excited about receiving a cat related item from Gift Company, and the appearance was one that I was most happy with. It wasn’t until I was meticulously detailing the cushion that I noticed it had no instructions label and I found the warning one about its cover. It’s a shame that this cushion wasn’t made more carefully to ensure a better quality of fabric used. The fabric itself is soft to touch and is by no means cheap, I thought it was lovely. I believe that if you were a careful household that kept the cushion away from naked flames I’m sure that the item would be thoroughly enjoyed by all cat lovers in the home. The embroidered details are lovely and it’s an ideal gift for anyone that enjoys the company of cats and the humor they bring to life.

Of course if you are nearby to a Gift Company store you could go in and inspect the actual item for yourself and then decide if it’s right for you or the recipient. Please don’t be put off a great gift by the need to take care around it, or by my honesty.

Gift Company also do a range of other Cushions such as ones for Dog Lovers, Golfers, you name it, so why not check the whole range out online (link at the end of the post).

Thank you for reading this product review today, I hope that you have enjoyed reading about this great gift. You can see more information about the Gift Company stores and there are links to the online pages below.

 Gift Company approached me again this festive season after we collaborated last year, and I was more than happy to do some more product reviews for them. Every time we work together I am sent these items to review for free, in return for my honest opinions and photography. For this service I do get to keep the products. I personally use and test the items and through my own experience is how I write my review. I do not work for Gift Company, neither do I get paid any commission that is generated from any sales that may occur from my work.

My Other Gift Company Reviews

Gift Company Wine Bottle Holder Cannon Shape Review

Gift Company sell a range of Wine Bottle Holders, which (until very recently) included this Cannon one. I purchased this for my Father for his birthday, and this is my review of the product, including a quote from my Father about what he thought. Here is the item that I received, the wine of course was not included, this is just to show the scale.

The current range of holders that are available can be found here Gift Company

The item is considerably larger than I would have thought, but when you consider the diameter of a standard sized bottle of wine it does make sense. The wine goes into the holder at an angle, so the Cannon sits as it would do if it was real. I loved the reality of this item, more than other ones available, it had a natural historic charm to it.

My father is a historical author, he loves anything to do with history and I knew this would be the most perfect gift for him. What he said about the product was this; “The Cannon is a lovely gift for anyone who likes history, it has excellent scale and a good shape to it. My only criticism is that it is quite sharp in areas so people must be careful when moving the object around”.

My opinion on the item is that the quirkiness and complexity of such an object makes a unique gift for any history lover or admirer of historic weapons. When it is not being used as a wine holder you could use it to house any manner of decorative items, such as false flowers or stationary.

Here are some more photographs of the item so you can look at the scale and details.

Finally I must add that the service that I received from one of the Gift Company team regarding this order was nothing less than exceptional. Not only did she have to find this item for me, sourcing it from one of the stores, she even had it delivered to me on a day that suited my needs. I really wanted this item and was so pleased that this could be made a reality for me to purchase. For that reason I would like to thank Becki, for her excellent customer service.

I recommend the Gift Company website to many people personally, as well as on my blog, so thank you very much for everything that you did in order to get me this wonderful present for my Father.

Thank you for reading this review today, I hope that you’ll be able to visit a Gift Company store near you or perhaps the website to find your perfect wine bottle holder, I cannot recommend them enough.

Gift Company Cherry Blossom Mini Reed Diffuser Review

cherry-titleI am lucky enough to bring you a selection of items from Gift Company throughout October and November. This UK based family run company prides itself on providing unique and quality giftware, homeware and furniture.

Final Review

The final review that I am giving this product is a 4/5. I think it’s a delicate scent and a well made product that can be used effectively in most homes, and even elsewhere such as the workplace. It’s both easy to use and easy to adjust, and I think the amount of enjoyment time for the price is just excellent.

I only have one issue with the item, which is that you cannot leave the diffuser unattended when small children and also pets are about. Cats are especially curious and I am currently unable to have this product out on display in my home, the only place it can survive from my new kitten is in the bathroom (where she is not allowed). If you have pets that can get onto high up surfaces perhaps consider this purchase only if you’re able to ensure that it won’t be disturbed.

The product retails for around £10.00 but Gift Company sell a range of different scented diffusers starting at only £6.00. What is great about the choice available, is that there will be something for everyone, including some Christmas related smelling reed diffusers such as Mince Pie and Mulled Wine.

Gift Company ‘Friends’ Double White Frame Review

frame-03-titleI am lucky enough to bring you a selection of items from Gift Company throughout October and November. This UK based family run company prides itself on providing unique and quality giftware, homeware and furniture.

After being contacted by Gift Company we arranged for several items for me to review, these are just some of a range of products available online at their website.

This is the ideal time of year to start thinking of Christmas presents, so it’s a good idea to look for gifts you may not have seen before. And by purchasing from Gift Company you are also supporting a UK business.

Today I will be reviewing a lovely white photo frame, the details for which can be found below, but first let me show you two photographs of the item.

frame-01-res-sw

What Makes This A Great Gift

An attractive design which holds two images so your choices are increased.
An excellent addition to any home because white is a versatile colour.
It has hooks in the back for ease of hanging.
✩ Easy to use product (placing photographs inside it and changing them).
Plastic front minimising breakages (compared to if it were glass).
The design is unique and unusual with the addition of a hanging star and the word ‘Friends’ in a pretty font with wooden letters.

To Be Aware Of 

✩ This frame has no easel or stand for freestanding capabilities. Instead it has hooks already screwed in for easy hanging.
✩ The white colour may darken or get dirty over time, to maintain this frame clean gently and regularly with a microfibre cloth to lift off any dust that may settle over time.

frame-05-res-swframe-06-res-sw frame-04-res-swDimensions and Product Information

Item Description: White Wooden Frame with Delicate Mount, Three Dimensional ‘Friends’ Word in the bottom left corner, two 7×5″ photo spaces and a silver star decoration that hands from the top right corner on a piece of rope.
Colour: Predominantly White with a small Silver Star on a piece of rope.
Dimensions: Height 35cm – Width 25cm –  Depth 1.4cm.
Requirements: Flat Surface, Or a Wall able to take mounts safely.
Made by: Flame Homeware.
Delivery: The frame was delivered inside it’s own box and wrapped in bubble wrap.
Frames at Gift Company: There are many kinds of frames available at the website.

frame-02-res-sw

Final Review

I am going to give this frame a final review of 4/5. I think it’s a delicate and well made product that can be used effectively in most homes. I like the uniqueness of the frames mount with the lines on it, they divide the white and make it look more three dimensional. The white colour is versatile for all homes and the size of this frame is excellent, holding two 7×5″ sized prints means their details should be seen easily from across a room.
My only issue with this frame is that it has no easel stand at the back, this means you are limited to where you place the item.
For anyone who has the means to drill into their walls at their own home, won’t find this to be an issue. However, remember that once mounted you will be unable to change the photographs very easily. But if the frame is leaned against a surface and then supported, it can be altered whenever the customer felt the need to do so.
The product retails for around £18.00 but Gift Company sell this frame at just £12.00. If you are in need of a nice looking frame, for yourself or as a gift for a friend then it’s ideal.

This is the ideal time of year to start thinking of Christmas presents, so it’s a good idea to look for gifts you may not have seen before. And by purchasing from Gift Company you are also supporting a UK business.

Today I will be reviewing this beautifully smelling Cherry Blossom Candle.

cb4-res-swcb1-res-swWhat Makes This A Great Gift

This Candle has a total of 100-105 hours burning time.
An excellent addition to make any home smell nice.
✩ Easy to use product and easy to care for.
Secure fit glass sealing lid makes sure that the flame is fully extinguished and no oxygen can get inside the candle once the lid is pushed in.
This candle does come in a range of scents for those not keen on cherry blossom.

To Be Aware Of 

✩ The candle needs a flat surface on which to be lit and burned safely, and either a candle holder or a tray is ideal too. You should consider this when purchasing this item to ensure you have everything you need to enjoy it safely at its best.
✩ The jar is glass and of course is rather heavy, this is not a toy and must be treated with care. It is not to used around small children and/or pets, and must never be burned unattended.

cb2-res-sw

Final Review

I am going to give this candle in a jar a final review of 5/5. My reason is simply because it’s an effective item that does exactly what it’s supposed to do. The smell is wonderful and the burning time is excellent for a price so small.
Anyone who likes the high street branded candles should be able to burn this piece and enjoy it. It just goes to show that price isn’t everything, sometimes it just takes a well made product to change peoples perceptions, and I feel that this is one such item.
The product retails for around £15.00 but Gift Company sell this candle at a bargain of just £6.99, a gift worth getting if you know someone who loves the smell of spring blossom.

Gift Company White Clock and Calendar Blocks Review

clock-one-titledI am lucky enough to bring you a selection of items from Gift Company throughout October and November. This UK based family run company prides itself on providing unique and quality giftware, homeware and furniture.

This is the ideal time of year to start thinking of Christmas presents, so it’s a good idea to look for gifts you may not have seen before. And by purchasing from Gift Company you are also supporting a UK business.

Today I will be showcasing their White Clock with Calendar Blocks gift. This rustic almost ‘shabby chic’ product is mostly white with black detailing.

clock-ten-swclock-eleven-sw

The first thing you notice about this gift is the striking bold fonts and the various shapes of the product. I like the archway wooden shaped top, it compliments the circular clock face.

clock-eight-swclock-twelve-sw

I have always wanted a product such as this in my home. When growing up my mother had a date box (as I called it) where we could rotate small metal turnstiles in order to move the days and months to the corresponding day. I have always liked wooden items, and this piece goes well with so many other things in my home. White products fit in much easier than coloured ornament pieces too. The size is very good and the numbers and letters are in a clear enough font to be seen from across a room. I like the hands on the Quartz clock as well, delicate and a nice addition to the piece.

clock-five-swclock-nine-sw   clock-two-swclock-six-sw

What Makes This A Great Gift

✩ Strong and durable wood for regular use.
An excellent educational piece in order to teach children about days and months.
✩ Easy to adjust the various calendar elements of the product.
✩ An ideal gift for its usefulness with the clock and calendar, as well as it’s white which is an ideal colour for most homes.
Uses an AA battery which is easily accessible and easy to replace.
Great size so the item that can fit onto a shelf or unit in the home, not too big a piece but with large enough numbers and letters to be seen from across a room.
Blocks can be displayed however you want within the diameter of the framing.

To Be Aware Of 

✩ The white painted surface might get dirty over time. Also by continually moving the blocks they scrape against the painted wooden surface as they slot into place, and as the months go by slight scuff marks will begin to appear on the paintwork. This is unavoidable as you use the product.
✩ The writing on the blocks isn’t perfect, some letters haven’t been stamped with much ink, for example the ‘Y’ on the month of May. I would hope that they will not wear away over time and with use but this is a possibility. I would recommend only ever cleaning it with a duster, so as not to take any of the paint off the items.
✩ The glued area of the plastic battery part of the clock was a little messy in my honest opinion. You wouldn’t see this if the ornament was placed against a wall or on a shelf where the back faced away from any view. The only time you notice it would be when changing the battery.

Dimensions and Product Information

Item Description: One wooden frame which contains two square number blocks and three rectangle month blocks. In the top half is a clock face situated centrally. The item is completed with a wooden arch shape at the top of it and curved sides that complement the contrast of the more square shaped calendar blocks.
Colour: White over all with black writing and the hands of the clock are black and red.
Box Materials: Wooden with a Plastic fronted Clock and back for the battery.
Clock and Calendar Dimensions: Unit Width 14cm Depth 7cm Height (highest point of arch) 23cm. Clock face is 7cm.
Products Clock is made by: Quartz.
Requires 1 x AA battery for the clock.

clock-seven-swclock-three-swFinal Review

I am going to give this clock with calendar blocks a final review of 3/5. My reasons for this is mostly down to the quality of the item. I was a little disappointed with the glue being so messily applied to the battery compartment and the fixing of the clock into place. I also feel with constant use that the white paint will begin to scrape off and mark over time. It gets extra points however for being a well made item that is useful to a home, and can be educational. The clock face is a good size as is the writing on the blocks. Over all it’s a decent piece that I would happily display in my house. The product retails for around £20.00 but Gift Company sell this piece at a bargain of £5.99, a gift worth getting if you know someone who could do with a gentle reminder of what date it is.

Gift Company ‘Memories’ Keepsake Box Review

keepsake-box-titleI am lucky enough to bring you a selection of items from Gift Company throughout October and November. This UK based family run company prides itself on providing unique and quality giftware, homeware and furniture.

Each week I will be bringing you an item, photographed in detail, and then I will give you a variety of information about that product before giving my final review. This is the ideal time of year to start thinking of Christmas presents, so it’s a good idea to look for gifts you may not have seen before. And by purchasing from Gift Company you are also supporting a UK business.

Today I will be showing you this awesome white wooden ‘Memories’ keepsake box, which has a frame built into the lid, to make the present just as unique as the memories you would put inside it.

keepsake-box-3-sw keepsake-box-1-sw

An ideal size to hold a variety of trinkets, this box has two silver hinges and is made from sturdy lightweight wood. Because it’s white it can fit into a variety of different places in the home and won’t look out of place.

keepsake-box-4-sw

The frame section in the lid is a good size, a heart shape where a 5×5″ photograph can be placed. It’s easily accessible from inside the box where three flat photo hinges support the heart shaped area. You can remove the shape in order to cut around the photo of your choice using it as a template before securing it all back into place.

keepsake-box-5-sw

Another beautiful feature of this box is the three dimensional word ‘Memories’ on the front, and the writing underneath it which reads ‘the best thing about memories is making them’ in a silver font. There is also a three dimensional heart in silver also, that sits just below the writing.

memories-quote-sw

I feel that this box is an ideal size for the sorts of memories I would use to fill it. Tickets, Photographs, Memories of Days Out such as Maps and Guides, all fit comfortably within the box. As you can see in my next photograph, the space is more than adequate for 6×4″ photographs as well as a variety of different sized papers.

What Makes This A Great Gift

✩ Strong Hinges for durable use.
✩ The base has feet so it won’t slip when placed on flat surfaces.
✩ Easy to Customise with the frame in the lid and you could stick other three dimensional items or stickers to the wooden lid to make it more unique.
✩ An ideal gift for ages of teenagers through to adults, everyone needs something to keep their trinkets and keepsakes inside, this box is an excellent all rounded item.
✩ White colour fits into the majority of home decor without looking out of place.

To Be Aware Of

✩ The white painted surface might get dirty over time, but this can add to the look of the box, well used and filled with happy memories of days gone by.
✩ The writing on the box that I received wasn’t set straight, however this doesn’t matter to me because I’m going to customise the box, but if you’re a perfectionist it’s something to be aware of, all boxes won’t be exactly the same, but that adds to their charm in my opinion.

And it makes you realise just how lucky you are to be able to put these things safely inside a box such as this…

Final Review

My final review for this gift company item is 5/5. I have found the product to be made to a high standard, and care has been taken in its design to ensure a well thought out piece. As a gift it can be easily customised to ensure uniqueness and its sizes have been well determined for its uses. A good quality item that I am sure many people would like in their homes, or will know of someone who could benefit from having one to store their memories inside.
The keepsake box is also good value for money with a retail price often around £15-£20 but Gift Company sell their version for just £10, another reason to consider this as a gift this Christmas.
