This is a pillow which can be used as a stand for your mobile device. This one has a cute owl design, but there are other designs available so that you can choose one that will suit the taste of the recipient.

This is a pet cloud! It is a soft fluffy white ball with googly eyes. On the back of the packet it has cloud care instructions ‘your pet cloud needs lots of love and attention.

This is a ‘Grow a Sloth’ kit. Inside the pack there is a mini sloth and you add water to it and it grows up to six times the original size.

When removed it will slowly shrink back to its original size. It is a cute item and a real novelty.

These dust mop slippers are an interesting idea. You can pop them on and then clean your floors without the hassle of bending.
