When you have a large family or lots of friends you will find yourself spending a lot of time buying presents for people. Be it your children's school friends, your husband's gran or even teacher's gifts, I always find I have something to buy most weeks.
I love buying people gifts but it can be hard work too, especially if you don't have much time. I also really want to get them something nice, but a little different and that can be quite time consuming too. I think many of my problems are solved now though I have found a brilliant website to buy presents on - The Present Finder. You can browse their huge range of products by occasion, price, gender and age. It really helps to make it easier to find a gift when you know that you can easily browse a list of suitable products by selecting the correct categories.
There is even a section for quirky gifts (how I love this!) and they have a whole host of personalised gifts too. Have a good browse on there, I am sure you could find the perfect gift for everyone! There is free delivery if you spend over £50 and I can't resist a free delivery offer. What I would do is buy a few gifts for occasions that you know are coming up and keep them in a drawer until you need them. Then you'll feel nice and smug when you know you have the perfect present to hand and no more running out to the shops last minute to buy something rubbish!
My girls were lucky enough to be sent a little package of gifts from the lovely team behind The Present Finder. I think it just goes to show that this online store is more than just a place to go to look for presents, you can find all your summer fun essentials here too!
They were absolutely delighted with their things, which were all exactly the type of things I would love to give to children as gifts but wouldn't have thought of or found elsewhere. They are perfect for a bit of summer fun too!
The first thing they received was this Doodle Drawstring Rucksack. It comes with pens which you can use to decorate the bag as you wish. You can then wash it and start again! What a fabulous idea! At £11.99 I'm sure most kids would love to receive this as a gift and would love drawing on it and taking it to school with them.
The second item they received gave them so much fun! It was coloured bath bombs made for kids - Bath Sprudels. Much cheaper than their Lush counterpart they had the same fizzing action and had bright colours. Safe for children they each had a surprise sponge in the middle too. They absolutely loved these and even put two or three balls in at once to see what colours they could make. Again at £9.99 they are at the perfect gift price point. They are brilliant fun after a hot day in the sun too!
They were most excited about this last item - The Bunch O Balloons. I think they must have seen them on an advert before because they knew exactly what to do with them. You simply attach them to your tap and they fill up the balloons really quickly. A little less quickly than advertised for us because our tap didn't fit the connectors but still really quickly and easily. They had an absolute blast with these on a sunny day after school! At £12.99 they are the perfect gift!
We had so much fun with these we made a little video of us using them!
If you haven't had a look at their website I would say definitely do, I think it might have revolutionised my life!
Disclosure - we were gifted these items for the purpose of this post. All opinions are honest and my own.
Love the idea of the doodle bag! My little cousins would love one of those.

This is such a lovely idea! I think my nieces would love it!
Anything that makes buying presents that little bit easier is a win in my book. The drawstring bag is such a great idea!
This website sounds a great idea I must admit! I'm always on the look out for inspiration for gifts.
This looks great. Finding a gift for someone can be tricky x
