In the last gasp of Christmas shopping go for a Really Good Humorous and Quirky TIN to put things in. At Velvet Moon shop in 79 St George’s Road, G3 6JA there is a terrific variety of tins of all shapes and sizes with witty messages on the lid to identify the contents (and characterise the new owner!)

Some of the amazing range of Really Good tins at Velvet Moon.

Who could resist a savings box saying: ‘Stupid little coins.’ Or a big box saying ‘Man Tin – leads, screws & other pointless stuff I must keep.’

We all need receptacles of this kind to keep things. There are suitable tins for receipts, parking coins, first aid ‘Human Repair Kit’ and even a ‘Naughty Tin’ which gives no direction as to what the contents might be… Prices range from £2.50 to £15 and there are coasters and mugs in the Really Good selection too.

Located near the St George’sMansion corner at 79 St George’s Road, G3 6JA, Velvet Moon shop is easy to find.

Park cheaply in Woodlands Road or take a No 4 bus; alternatively use the low level train to Charing Cross or travel by underground to St George’s Cross then a short walk will take you to Velvet Moon.  There you should be able to do all your important gift shopping.

In the countdown to Christmas this website has carried a dozen of Velvet Moon’s exciting gift ranges. So look back to find special gift attractions from Harris Tweed, jewellery, infant wear and candles to body creams, cuddly toys and baking mixes in re-usable jars.  There are also desirable prints and delicate china mugs.

But you’ve only got till 3pm on Christmas Eve to get to Velvet Moon to wrap up your Christmas gift shopping.  And Velvet Moon owner Brenda will wrap your presents – beautifully – if you wish.

Then you can heave a sigh of relief and enjoy a HAPPY CHRISTMAS thanks to Velvet Moon.
