We're So Egg-cited! https://www.qwerkity.com/were-so-egg-cited!-blog197/ https://www.qwerkity.com/were-so-egg-cited!-blog197/#comments Tue, 11 Apr 2017 00:00:00 GMT Laura-Anne https://www.qwerkity.com/were-so-egg-cited!-blog197/



 

  We decided to use our Erasable Felt Tip Pens//P18461 for the finer details on our little eggies. Obviously, we're all brilliant artists (I mean, look at these!) and we would never make any mistakes, but you could actually just wipe the designs off the eggs
with a damp cloth.

The Erasable Felt Tip Pens//P18461 come as a set of 12 colours, and are great fun for
doodling with!

For the slightly bolder colours for the Little One and Biscuit eggs, we used these brilliant Paint Sticks//P17890. You can add bold colourful brushstrokes to paper (or an egg!) without picking up a paintbrush!

A fantastic mess-free alternative to ordinary paints, these Paint Sticks are filled with ready-to-use poster paint that you apply to paper just like a pen. Plus, they're currently in our Easter Sale!//CSPECIALOFFER Snap them up while you can!




And here are our little "egg-speriments"!   



Of course, there had to be a winner, and we felt that Benji went above and beyond the call of duty; sacrificing a lock of his little girl's Barbie doll's hair!

Ben now has bragging rights as the most eggs-celent Easter egg decorator in town!





Have you been decorating any Easter eggs, Qwerkiteers?

With the big day fast approaching, thinking of the best Father's Day gifts//CFATHERSD can be a struggle. That’s why we’re here with a range of fun, quirky and helpful items for you to get your dad this year. Whether he likes sports, cooking, gardening, modelling or something else entirely, we have a suggestion for you in our Father’s Day gift guide.

Father's Day Gift Guide
 

HMS Belfast Construction Set//P19608

If your dad loves his military history and is a keen modeller in his spare time, he’s bound to enjoy piecing together his very own HMS Belfast model. This ship is one of only three surviving bombardment vessels from D-Day and this construction set, from the Imperial War Museum, allows your dad to bring a fascinating piece of history into his own home. To make this Father’s Day extra special, you could also treat him to a visit to the HMS Belfast and Imperial War Museum in London.

Pure Genius Head Chef Cap//P19728

Since summer is well on the way, maybe it’s time to treat any fathers who like to flame grill their meals to this quirky cap? With a hilarious slogan and handy bottle opener in the peak, any dad will love knowing his kids think he’s the barbeque king of his garden. He’ll never barbeque without it again!

Protect his eyes and head with the St Andrew's Cap//P19683 , let him enjoy a drink after a round of golf with the St Andrew's Whisky Tumbler and Hip Flask//P19684 and, to finish up his St Andrew’s kit, treat him to the St Andrew's Three-Fold Towel//P19684 .Each of these items comes with the St Andrew’s Old Course logo and they make the perfect presents for golf fans.

Tetraturn Puzzle//P18789

Dads with a knack for solving puzzles will have a real challenge with the Tetraturn puzzle which requires a lot of brain power to complete two tricky challenges. If your dad has always been a word search, sudoku and crossword enthusiast, give him a new puzzle to ponder over this Father’s Day.

Punjabi Curry Kit//P17171

'I'm Sure I Speak for Many Others...'//P19514

This compilation, brought together by Colin Shindler, features previously unpublished letters to the BBC across 40 years of their broadcasting history. If your dad is telly-mad, he’ll greatly enjoy flicking through these funny letters and casting his mind back to the shows he used to watch as he comes across letters concerning programmes that were once regularly shown on the small screen.

Leather Rugby Ball Manicure Set//P17488

If your dad’s sport of choice is rugby then we have some fantastic rugby-based items that will make excellent presents. In amongst these, we have the leather rugby ball manicure set which features safety scissors, fine tweezers, and a cuticle and nail multi-tool and two sets of nail clippers, all kept together in a leather kit. If your dad is planning a trip away, this is a great item for him to pack in his suitcase to take all his manicure essentials along with him.

Kent & Stowe Tool Storage Belt//P19673

For a more practical present, this sturdy storage belt from Kent & Stowe is a great gift idea for a keen gardener. This storage belt has eight pockets of different sizes to allow him to carry all the tools he needs when he is sprucing up the garden.

Whether the local hedgehogs need somewhere warm to hibernate in the winter or a safe spot for raising their little hoglets in summer, this igloo is big enough to securely accommodate a family group. So, if your dad loves wildlife and would enjoy encouraging more creatures into his garden then the hedgehog igloo may just be the perfect go-to Father’s Day gift.

We hope you’ve found something that will work for your dad in this list, but, if you haven’t yet, browse through our website to find lots of quirky gifts, handy homeware and brilliant books that might just do the trick. Happy Father’s Day!
