You’ll find something for the hardest-to-buy-for partners, friends and family members on our website. Check out our Christmas shopping gift guide to get you started.

Quirky Christmas Gift Ideas for All Your Friends and Family

Big and unusual Christmas gifts:

If there’s someone in your life you want to really spoil then check out these three big Christmas presents to find the right thing.

Jive Rock Sixty Jukebox

This jukebox would be perfectly at home in a 1960s diner if it weren’t for all the handy modern features! With Bluetooth connectivity, a front-loading CD player, a USB port, an SD card slot and a remote control, this jukebox is a must for music and tech fans.

Slushie Maker

If they love retro style and spending time in the kitchen, this Slushie Maker may well just be the ideal gift. The Slushie Maker itself comes with recipes for iced coffee, cocktails and, of course, classic, tasty slushies.

Sausage Making Kit

Foodies can make their meals well and truly their own with this Sausage Making Kit. Complete with full instructions and all the items you need to get started, this kit is sure to please all your foodie friends. All they need to do is add their meat of choice and get making!

Stocking fillers:

If you’re doing your family members stockings this year, we have plenty of stocking presents to please everyone. We have gadget stocking fillers for the puzzlers and techies in your life as well as some cool stocking fillers for festive fun with the family.

Do You Remember the 1980s?

Test their memory with this trivia book all about the 1980s.

Knitted Fox Terrier Hand Warmers

Keep your friends and family warm this winter by gifting them these Knitted Fox Terrier Hand Warmers. Simply click the gel heat packs inside the knitted covers to warm up cold fingers.

Monkey Madness Puzzle

Challenge a puzzle-loving pal to this tricky task. All you have to do is find a way to slot all the monkeys together into the space provided. It’s a little harder than it looks though so add this gift to one of your family members’ stockings and see who can handle this tricky brain teaser.

Secret Santa Gifts

Whether you’re in a Secret Santa at work, at home or in your friend circle, we have Secret Santa ideas for every type of person you might be buying for. We have Secret Santa gift ideas for gamers, sports fans and those who like the odd drink!

Ice Hockey

For a truly unusual Secret Santa gift, you can get this tabletop Ice Hockey set which you can add water and freeze to create a real mini ice hockey rink! Fun to play with a friend, this is a gift that both you and your gift’s recipient can enjoy.

Quirky Gifts for Kids

Father's Day Gift Guide

Thursday, 17th May 2018

With the big day fast approaching, thinking of the best Father’s Day gifts 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

With the big day fast approaching, thinking of the best Father's Day gifts 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

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

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!

St Andrew's Old Course Products

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

Tetraturn Puzzle

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

This tasty curry kit from the Scotia Spice Cookery School allows any foodie father to make six different curry dishes (three chicken-based main meals and three side dishes), each for two people. With all the spices, recipes and a tasting guide included, this is the perfect gift for your dad who loves to whip up his very own tasty treats.

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

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

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

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.

Hedgehog Igloo

An animal-loving dad will really appreciate this hedgehog igloo. 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!

Once Upon A Time...

Thursday, 27th April 2017

Are you sitting comfortably? Then we shall begin…

Once upon a time it was Tell A Story Day, and the little elves at Qwerkity picked out their favourite books from their super cool website.

Laura-Anne picked A Child’s First Book Of Trump.

She likes the pictures of the orange lump.



Nic thinks Peter Rabbit’s Little Book Of Virtue is the best.

She can’t wait to put this good advice to the test.




Katy chose Cows In Trees as her best story to read.

Whoever knew that a cow could get treed?



Cam likes the story Five Give Up Booze.

The tale of their travails is sure to amuse.




James loves Peter Rabbit’s Book Of Harmony.

It leaves him full of bonhomie!



Ben likes Medicine’s Strangest Cases.

These stories will surely put you through your paces!



Jane loves Terry Wogan’s Something For The Weekend.

She thinks it’s a great read if you have some time to spend.



Chloe’s favourite is Peter Rabbit’s Little Guide To Life.

This is the book to refer to in times of strife.



Mandy likes Auld Lang Syne.

She hums these tunes all the time!


Now you know our favourite stories, it's time to share.

We'll see you there!

We're So Egg-cited!

Tuesday, 11th April 2017

Tis the season for decorating eggs, so we thought we'd have a go at doing our own mini egg self-portraits!


  We decided to use our Erasable Felt Tip Pens 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 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. 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! 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?

Send us some photos on Instagram using #Qwerkity!

Hop to it!
