Countdown to Christmas! Play our WSG Stocking Filler Quiz
Christmas is coming! With Black Friday just around the corner and the festive season barely over a month away, we’ve put together a fun little multiple-choice quiz to help you discover that knockout present for the perfect recipient.
Here are some of our top picks for those little gifts that put a smile on faces both young and old…
1. Timeless Timepieces
Countdown to Christmas in style with one of our brand spanking new clocks here at WSG. Be extra generous this year by giving one lucky recipient the perfect wake up call to the New Year! The question is, what style suits your recipient the best? Is it:
For the history buffs. This individual has an obsession with retro vibes and mid-century classic styling. They love nothing more than to turn back the clock on their approach to clothes, décor and design.
To put it bluntly, they aren’t afraid to show off their desire for old-school sophistication! If this sounds like a match, then consider our superb Newgate Mantel Clock.
A mid-century design that sports a minimalist dial, sweeping hand movement and near-silent ticking action, this designer timepiece also comes in two classic colours: silver and cream.
For that true nostalgia lover in your life, let them turn back time with this terrific retro chronometer. Unless of course, they prefer to look to the future rather than the past…
The future aficionado. This type of gift recipient loves anything cutting edge, futuristic and trail-blazing. Maybe they’re a fan of space-age design? Light up their rocket fuel with a Lunar LED Clock.
Evoking the design of a lunar lander, this quirky, colourful and downright fun digital alarm clock would make a great bedside table companion with the aim of looking forward to a bright 2021.
The vivid yellow casing combined with a snooze mode, automatic night mode dimming and a digital beep alarm guarantees a perfect stocking filler for that family member who’s always got an eye on what’s to come. Take them back to the future with this cracking digital timepiece!
But you’ll have to act fast, as these space-age clocks are selling like hotcakes!
2. Fabulous Faux Plants
OK, so they’re not quite stocking filler sized, but we reckon these designer shrubs are too gorgeous to miss out on this Christmas.
Spread some green cheer next year with a selection of our lovely faux plants, which also come as part of our new item collection. The question is, which one suits the personality of your recipient the best? Are they a…
A) Tropics Lover
If your receiver in mind is a sucker for soft white sand underfoot, the blissful sound of the crashing waves of a crystal blue sea and loves feeling the warm kiss of the blazing hot sun on their backs, they’ll fall head over heels for our Fan Palm Tree.
Treat your lucky gift lover to a sense of the tropics this December, and help them push the dark, gloomy British winter weather aside.
Complete with its own plant pot, our Fan Palm Tree has decoratively displayed faux leaves and would make a terrifically ornate addition to a living room, conservatory, kitchen or bedroom setting.
There may be no greenery on the real trees at this time of year, but our faux alternatives never shed their foliage! They’re perfect for brightening up a home.
Unless of course, they’re more into…
B) Rainforest Radiance
Maybe the tropics are a tad too predictable for this type of individual. Perhaps they’re more into the nature-filled atmosphere of a rainforest floor?
Bamboo fanatics will be right in their element with our faux Bamboo Tree.
The authentic looking bamboo stems and gorgeous green leaves on this plant will add a sense of wild nature and cheer to the home, and because it’s false, there’s no need to get the watering can out!
For lovers of serious rainforest style plants, the Bamboo Tree will be right up their street! We may not be able to replicate the wildlife, but your living spaces will be in greater shape once you allow these funky plants to fill your various corners, mantelpieces and windowsills.
3. Ostentatious Ornaments
We all need a little quirkiness in our lives, and so what better way to lift the room vibes than by displaying ornaments that love the limelight!
But what is your gift receiver’s style? Are they into…
A) Polynesian Paradise
If you know someone who simply loves to display bohemian statues and ornaments with a hint of Pacific Island influence, then they’ll simply adore our Zuma Easter Island Head.
For a hint of spirituality and premium stoneware panache, Zuma is a terrific way of showcasing some genuine wonder and mysticism in the living room.
Based on the design of Easter Island head statues (or Moai) from the Polyensian Islands dating back to between the 1200s and 1500s, these figures are a subtle yet sophisticated expression of style and character.
But if your person in mind is more into their nature sculptures, they won’t go far wrong with Izel…
B) Slice of Nature
Quite literally, a slice of nature in sculpture form. Stop us if we’re barking up the wrong tree here, but we reckon that anyone who’s into their saplings and deciduous delights scattered throughout the home (boho style) will fall in love with Izel.
A stylised polyresin tree slice on a plinth and sprayed in matte black paint makes for a stark expression of a true appreciation for nature.
And at over half a metre in height, Izel would make a terrific centrepiece to a lounge, bedroom or could even make it into the dining room if they unwrap this beauty before Christmas dinner.
We hope these little present proposals have given you food for thought as we head into the mad, Christmas shopping mayhem time of year!
And since so many of us are in national lockdown number two, buying online has never been a safer and more practical alternative to the usual high street rat race for those last-minute gifts!
Enjoy the pre-Christmas build up Saints, and given that Black Friday is just around the corner, don’t forget to keep checking our website in the coming days and weeks. You never know what you might find…
Feel the Love!
